What is “normal” discharge?

Great question!

It’s important to say that Vaginas and penis‘ are self-cleaning organs. Much like earwax and tears are parts of the normal functioning of the ear and eye, people secrete discharge, which is the body’s natural way of cleaning

While 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 discharge (color, odor, consistency, or amount) this could be a sign of an infection.  If this is the case, seeing a medical provider would be a good idea to determine what is going on.
