I’m a girl and when I masturbate and have an orgasm there is a clear liquid that shoots out of my vagina. is this normal?

The vagina is an organ that is considered self cleaning. This means that is produces and releases fluids. These fluids can help clean out the reproductive system and keep the vagina healthy. When these fluids change for any reason (like the odor, color, consistency, or amount) this can be a sign an infection is present.

In addition to this, vaginas are self lubricating. So, when someone is aroused or “turned on” or if they have an orgasm, it is very common for the vagina to release and produce fluids. Some people may not have very much fluid, and some people may have a lot!

So while we cant say for sure what is going on, it sounds like this fluid is a normal part of the vagina.

What does it mean to have a white discharge with no odor?

Great question!

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.

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!

I am sexually active…

….. but both me and my boyfriend were virgins when we met. Ever since I have been sexually active, I have noticed a foul fishy smell from my vagina. I have done lots of research and have excluded the possibilities of STIs, so what could it be?

 

Good question!

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 moisture from the membranes that line the vagina.

These normal secretions help control the growth of organisms—like yeast and certain bacteria—that are normal, healthy parts of the vagina.

The past couple of months I’ve had bad discharge….

……. and my vagina is sensitive to certain pads and my discharge smells. I’m really worried and not sure what to do.

 

Thank you for asking this question!

It is also important to know that some people may be more sensitive to different products.  Pads or tampons that are “scented” can potentially cause irritation or lead to these type of infections.

I’ve been experiencing a vaginal discharge ……

……. with a fishy odor and it’s color is yellowish greenish. After a penetration, I feel my vagina is sore and it burns when I urinate.

I am on the Depo Shot…..

…..We had unprotected sex maybe a month after. Which was about 5 weeks ago. I have brown discharge coming out my vagina. Should I be worried if I’m pregnant?

Once someone has had a hormonal form of birth control (like the Depo shot)  for a week it can help prevent pregnancy up to 99% (even if ejaculation occurs in the vagina) when taken correctly. In order for the Depo Shot to be effective, a person needs to get the shot every 3 months.

So, as long as you are getting your shots on time, and you are not late for a shot, you are 99% protected from pregnancy.

Remember, the Depo Shot does not protect against STIs!

It is important to know that the Depo Shot can cause a change in period. This happens because the uterine lining is thinning. Sometimes a person will have a lighter period, irregular bleeding or spotting, or not have a period at all! The brown discharge could be your body getting used to the Depo Shot.

Sometimes, a change in discharge can be a sign of infection. Some infections like yeast and bacterial vaginitis can occur organically from imbalances in the body. Some of these infections may resolve themselves, but others require medical treatment.
