If there's nothing else that feels off or fits the "abnormal" descriptors in that article, then it's possible what you're experiencing is just what your body feels it needs to keep itself healthy at the moment. The vagina really does have a pretty effective self-cleaning cycle. That cycle can change a bit depending on things like diet, exercise, hydration, sexual activity, stress, etc., so there are a few things that you can do to make the process a little easier:
- wearing cotton underwear
- not wearing underwear/bottoms at night
- bathing regularly, and not using any scented soaps/body washes to clean the vulva, and definitely not putting anything inside of the vagina
- drinking lots of water
- eating yogurt or taking probiotic supplements
Of course, if you're concerned, you can always check in with a healthcare provider about it! They can give you a second opinion, and if they see something they're concerned about they can run tests for STIs or bacterial infections and let you know if there's anything causing that discharge that might be harmful to your health.
