I get a lot of vaginal discharge on a daily basis. It's (what I think to be?) a normal color - off white or slightly yellowish. It doesn't have a strong odor unless it's before or after my period. (And even then, it smells normal. It's just strong.) There's no chunks or anything, it's just.. a lot. It feels kind of uncomfortable sometimes and I used to mistake it for my period.
I went to the gyno about a year ago and I had a bacterial infection but I took the prescription so it cleared up. I've always had a lot of discharge though, but now I'm letting it bother me.
Gahh, I guess what I'm really asking is this a common problem for women? I know it varies person to person, but at times I feel ridiculous and embarrassed. I don't like wearing panty liners.. they don't let things "breathe" down there. I wear cotton underwear all the time and stopped wearing thongs because that just gets disgusting.
