Hi! I'm just wondering... what amount of vaginal discharge (the one that goes out during ovulation or something) can be considered normal?

My girlfriend told me that she's heavy with the thing down there. It's more or less Day 18 of her monthly cycle (started on the 1st of Jan but is irregular, cycle lasts around 28-31 days). I'm worried that something might be wrong. We have had no sexual activities for the past two months, and she had her period two times since we had sex.

Is it possible that she's just ovulating and just secreting a lot because of increased hormone levels? I forgot to mention, she's been dealing with lots of stress lately, so I'm also wondering if that is a contributing factor?

And another thing, is it normal for a girl to have a 3-day "heavy bleeding" and 1-3 day "moderate to light" bleeding during her period? I thought periods were always heavy from start to end.

Thanks!

Bleeding is rarely constant from start to finish of a period. Rather, it tends to start out slow on the first day, be heaviest on the second and third day, and then slow down again. But that's also not a rule - like almost always when it comes to the human body, it's a very individual thing and also something that tends to fluctuate even for one person.

Thanks for the enlightenment.

By the way, she told me she had a brown, odorless discharge last night. It didn't last long, however. I also read somewhere that a brown discharge is normal for ovulating women? Is that true?
