Okay so I know girls are supposed to have discharge or whatever...but..

Lately...a LOT of like clear liquid has been um "appearing" in my underwear and it like smells and sometimes it like dampens my pants, like you can see it come through my pants. And it comes at like random times of the day...like I'll just be sitting in school and like start to smell it. Usually I wear like a sheild so it doesn't like come through my pants...

ANYWAY......why is that happening and how can I make it stop?????!

If the smell you are noticing is "fishy" or is different to odors that you have noticed in the past, then you need to see a doctor, ASAP. However, it seems to me that what you are describing is completely normal.

A lot of the time, if a person is overly concerned about a particular bodily odor, then they will be more sensitive to that smell than anyone else would be. This can happen a lot of the time with women, since we're often taught to be at war with our bodies. Again, I stress that if the odor is "fishy" or otherwise abnormal, you need to have it seen to, but if that's not the case, then the clear discharge you describe is likely just your vagina's self-cleaning system doing its job.

You don't WANT to stop this process of self-cleansing: it's a good thing. If you stopped this process the pH levels in your vagina could get mucked up, leaving you far more susceptible to infection. If the dampness bothers you, then continue to use a panty-liner as you have been doing.

Well, there's certainly never any harm in having it looked at, and if you're not up-to-cate with your yearly pelvic exams, you'll want to be so anyway.

Hmmm...okay. I just don't really like people looking um "down there" even if it is a doctor because like...well my "grooming" situation isn't up to par. Like I understand that there are different ways to shave but like...a razor leaves bumps, waxing costs money and involves someone else looking down there and scissors takes soooo long! And how are you supposed to make it all the same length?

But if it's for the sake of my health {haha} you're right, I'll get it checked out.

Honestly, a doctor really isn't going to give a rat's patootie about whether or not you have pubic hair. It's part of your body, and doctors have seen tons and tons of it, so really, it's not at all anything to be ashamed of. (And you don't HAVE to change or get rid of your pubic hair if you don't want to- it's your decision.) [Smile]
