I was wondering since all it is, is signalling your aroused, had REM sleep, or etc. if there was any way to not have it show on my underwear. Should I try cotton, what?

Breathable, cotton underwear is just going to be nicer for your vulva and vaginal health, anyhow, but as far as not having vaginal discharge appear in your underwear, your best option is to wear a panty-liner.

Can wearing thongs all the time be bad for your vaginal health?

Thong-style panties carry an increased risk of UTI's and vaginal infections because the snugness of the narrow crotch and back can easily transfer bacteria from the anus to vaginal area.

If you like thongs, find them comfortable, and have no problems, go for it! Just make sure to keep an eye out.

Just an additional note?

There's really no reason to worry about discharges on underwear, since that's really the only reason why we ever WEAR underwear, to provide a barrier between our genitals and our clothing.

In other words, your underwear is where discharges are supposed to be. The point of underpants is actually functional, not decorative.

question, is it normal to have discharges all throughout the cycle? and is it normal to have like a not so clean discharge before menstruation?

Yes, it's normal to have vaginal discharge all the time.

I'm not sure what you mean by "not so clean" - do you mean brown-ish? That can happen just before or after menstruation because the discharge contains a little bit of old blood.
