Vaginal discharge dries crustily during masturbation

Unread post by latestarter »

For a while now, when I masturbate, my fingers have been getting crusty and my vaginal fluids have been drying and balling up. It didn’t used to happen. I think it only started after I began fingering myself, and my vaginal fluids feel thicker than they used to... I’m not sure if this is normal or not. Is it a problem?

Hey there latestarter,

This kind of discharge is totally normal. When you masturbate, the amount of vaginal discharge you experience may temporarily increase. We have a great article about normal discharge vs. possible signs of infection or illness: Honorably Discharged: A Guide to Vaginal Secretions. When it dries, it can often be crusty or flakey (on your skin, inside your underwear, etc.).

Have you experienced any other symptoms that worry you, or just increased discharge?
