Dear Hanging Piece of Flesh,

Despite the including a list of your observations, TeenHealthFX is never comfortable giving a diagnosis over the web. You really need to make an appointment with a health professional and have an examination. 

However, let’s see if we can be of some help: 

  1. It is safe to say this is not a sexually transmitted disease.

  2. Labium’s come in all shapes and sizes.

  3. When people refer to a woman’s “discharge,” they are referring to a substance that is expelled from the vagina. Women may notice that at times their underwear is slightly moist or has a substance on it that is clear or milky in color – this is the discharge. Glands inside the vagina and cervix make small amounts of fluid that flow out of the vagina daily. This fluid carries out old cells that have lined the vagina in order to the keep the vagina healthy and clean. 

Some facts about vaginal discharge: 

      • Having vaginal discharge is normal and natural. 

      • Vaginal discharge is usually clear or milky and does not smell bad. 

      • The amount of discharge can vary from woman to woman. 

      • The quantity of vaginal discharge is usually less before menarche and after menopause then it is during the reproductive years. 

      • The color and thickness of vaginal discharge can change with the monthly menstrual cycle. For example, vaginal discharge is often thicker during ovulation. 

      • Changes in the appearance and consistency of vaginal discharge can also be caused by emotional stress, taking OTC medications (including the pill), pregnancy, sexual arousal, and diet.
