what does normal discharge look / smell like ?

Vaginas and penis‘ are self-cleaning organs. Discharge is a fluid that leaves the body that helps clean these body parts and get rid of bacteria.

While we can’t say for sure what every person experiences because  everyone’s bodies are different, a certain amount of discharge and odor can be completely normal! Knowing what is normal for your body will help you to know when something is abnormal.

If you noticed a change in odor and/or discharge, it can be a sign of infection . Some infections likes Yeast and Bacterial Vaginosis can occur organically from imbalances in the body (stress, diet, and clothing can all contribute to this). These are not STIs, but can be treated. Some of these infections may resolve themselves, but others require medical treatment. Although Yeast and Bacterial Vaginosis are not STIs, some STIs can also cause abnormal discharge and a change in odor.

If you are experiencing this, it would be a good idea to see a medical provider so they can figure out what is going on, and give you treatment if needed!
