Hey guys, I just had a quick question about something I'm a little concerned about.

Recently, my vaginal discharge has changed somewhat. It's always consistently been thick and white, and during any given day I can find a either little or a lot. Lately though, it's become very thin and watery. It's still white and doesn't smell, but there have been times when I've stood up and for a minute think I've pee'd myself. It's not like it's soaking through my pants, but it's still disconcerting. Is this something I should be concerned about?

By the way, I'm 21 and I've been sexually active for 2 years (same partner, with condoms, and he's STD-free).

Thank you!

How long since the change in your discharge?

Have there been any changes to your health, stress level, life, etc?

Generally, when there's any big change, even if it falls within normal parameters, it's good to get yourself checked out by a health care professional.

Watery discharge may be a sign that something is going on so it is good to get yourself checked out.

Not any big changes in my life that I can think of... It started about a month ago I believe. I had about 10 days of vacation where I was home with zero stress. Now I'm back in school which is super busy and stressful. However, it doesn't seem to have gotten any better or worse during these two times. It's also very inconsistent (happens more on some days than others). Like I said, it's also not so profuse that it soaks through my underwear, it just seems kind of odd.

NO change in colour or smell is a good sign.

Since it is something different, and does recur--even if it isn't consistent--it's a sound idea to get it checked out by a medical person. Is that something doable for you?
