Hey guys!

So, for the past year i have woken up to find my panties wet. Im scared, cause it happens throughout the day, i change undies 3 times a day! It's a milky white color, and it STINKS BAD. What is it? Is there a way to stop it? And whats causing it? Its really disgusting, and i dont know how to hide the odor [Frown]
Also, i dont think its not 'female ejaculation' because ive never had sex, or done as much as kiss a boy!

Thanks in advance!

If it has a very bad odor, you may have an infection, like a yeast or bacterial infection (which is what this sounds more like). Women can develop those two infections without having had any sexual activity. If it's gone on this long, and it is an infection, it's really important you see a healthcare provider so you can get treated, as vaginal infections can spread to other sites -- like your uterus -- can potentially cause serious problems.

Ive never done anything sexual before, so could it be something else?

As Heather said, you can get both bacterial and yeast infections without doing anything sexual. You really ought to see a doctor to get diagnosed, as well as get any medication you may need to treat it, such as an antibiotic.

An added note- it is normal for women to have some vaginal discharge, which can have an odor. I started noticing it when I was just starting high school. The secretions are the way the vagina cleans itself. Definitely get checked out to see if you have an infection, but it may also be possible that this is normal for you, especially if the discharge and its smell have been the same for a year.
Here's some more info:
