So for a while, I've had bleach stains in the croutch area of my black undies.
I don't find it gross or think that there's anything wrong with me, but it just irritates me that it destroys the look of my underwear.

However, I've done a little looking into it and have read that it is caused by acidic body pH levels. But i'm not sure whether it's from urine (no I don't pee my pants) or from when the vagina cleans itself with the white discharge.

Sorry if this topic is in the wrong spot! But it would be appreciated if I got an answer [Smile]

Vaginal discharges, period, are acidic, rather than alkaline.

Anything going with this like a change in color or scent? Up to date with your sexual healthcare if you're sexually active?

If nothing's wrong, and this is just about your underpants, some women elect to use pantyliners -- disposable or washable -- with undergarments they want to particularly care for.

No, the colour is fine and it has no smell. Do you think there is a way of changing the diet to eating more alkaline foods so there would be no more stains? Or would it have no effect?

Vaginal fluid is going to be acidic no matter what you eat: that's the nature of it.
