White discharge before period starts

Common Questions and Answers about White discharge before period starts


1305767 tn?1361196276 Every month before my period starts, when I start to get crampy, I will see odd chunks of "material" on the toilet paper when wiping after peeing. This "material" varies in color from white, grey, and sometimes pink. What could it be from?
Avatar f tn like clockwork....about a week or week & half before I start my period, my discharge becomes very thick & heavy (during the month I rarely discharge)....during sex it is very noticeable on my partners penis. If i'm using the restroom, It's not a little wipe (usually as much as 2 pumps on a lotion dispenser)....its thick & white-no odor....is this normal?....it's kind of embaressing during sex.....so not only no sex on my period....I have this week & a half I'm uncomfortable.....
Avatar n tn The itching isn't as severe. Also, right before a woman begins her period, she gets a white to yellowish discharge, which is also normal. This can also itch some. If there is a smell associated with the discharge, then you do have a yeast infection. Sometimes, over the counter products are ineffective at treating yeast infections. Keeping the area clean & douching after your periods can help to prevent them. Use moist toweletes intended for vaginal itching.
Avatar n tn It is the beginning of your period. I have read the post about the 13y/o but this time she is giving the right advice.
Avatar n tn i had my period on the 8th of this month and since yester day i been spotting almost nothin ?
Avatar f tn Im 32 and having daily white discharge for years now. I know that discharge is normal and everytime I go for my yearly pap they say its normal but Im thinking that everyones AMOUNT of normal is different and Im thinking it even varies among doctors. My question is to the doctor, how MUCH is normal if you KNOW you are NOT being sexually aroused but STILL having excessive white discharge. How do my doctors know or I know how much is too much its not like we are measuring it.
Avatar f tn I have the watery discharge only during my period. It soaks through my clothes. I have painful stabbing cramps several days before my period starts. I haven't experienced any clots as of yet. I have been out of regular work for over 5 mos and though my daughter has insurance, I have none for myself so it's good to hear your findings when you have them. I wonder how doctors receive information about other patients experiencing the same problems as their patients and that it's gone undiagnosed.
Avatar n tn but i started noticing brownish discharge about 11 days before my period was due and then it got a little heavier for a few hours.. and now it's just a clear discharge that's slightly pink..this has lasted for about 5 days..it's been very light and usually only when i wipe...and i havn't really had any cramping. i'm not due to get my period for another five days..could this be implatation bleeding or is it somthing else?
285848 tn?1219095913 The increase in CM is totally normal before your period starts, I get that too. But as a side note, I had some early pregnancy symptoms several days before I expected my period, then they totally went away... then on the day I expected my period I got a BFP!! The symptoms didn't come back until the start of week 6. So keep the faith... and best wishes!
Avatar f tn okay my period calendar says i have 1 day until my period starts and i went to the bathroom and wipe there goes slime and it feels weird could i be pregnant or what
Avatar n tn I have the same brown spotting - but it's BEFORE I get my period for several days. Has anyone ever had it BEFORE their period???
Avatar n tn discharge is normal. it varies from women to women. usually i get extra discharge about a week before my period. i wouldn't worry about your discharge unless it starts to become white cheesy looking like cottage cheese and sitting on the outer walls of your vagina. another thing, it is a bad idea to stick your hands or fingers inside your vagina when you are cleaning it. the vagina has a natural bacteria down there that keeps all the bad bacteria away from it.
400740 tn?1202069635 (I had NO idea where to put this, so I apologize if its in the wrong spot!) About in December I started noticing a very thick, white/clear discharge, all the time. It dries a whitish color. During the day I can feel it come out of me. I just very recently went to the gyno and got tested for STDs, and everything came back clear. I do NOT have itching, redness, odor, or anything like that. I am no longer a virgin, but back in December when this started, i was.
Avatar f tn The nausea has went away since Mon (20th), and my period is still not due for another week. I never have had discharge prior to a period other than the regular clear/white, when my period starts its usually blood, and is very very heavy until the last day or 2, when it is brown, and I get bad bad mens cramping the first day. I have had minor cramping since last night (21st) and woke up today (22nd) with mild cramping n a headache n exhaustion.
Avatar m tn i had white discharge the day before , but i didnt know if this was because i was about to start my period.
Avatar f tn I have also been having a milky white discharge in my panties when I go to the restroom. Is this a sign if pregnancy or just me being sick. I don't want to get my hopes up so I thought I would ask for other peoples input.Thanks so much!
Avatar f tn Around your time of ovulation (usually 14 days after the first day of your period) the mucus starts out tacky and thick. 2-3 days later it starts getting more slippery and thin. This is what happens right before your egg comes out. Just google ovulation and it will tell you all about it.
Avatar n tn Thinking this message board is probably past due, but was looking up white creamy discharge on day of missed period and came across this site. I have been TTC since June 07. I'm 41 yrs old and was starting to give up hope. Its been 10 yrs since I conceived last (gave birth to a healthy son) and I don't remember any of the past pregnancy symptoms prior to getting a positive pregnacy result last go around. Yesterday was my first missed period.
Avatar n tn You usually ovulate 2 weeks BEFORE you have your period so that is why you can get pregnant before having your AF (I did). But yes, you need to ovulate to get pregnant. I hope this make sense.
Avatar f tn since i was about 11 i started gettin the discahrge you get before your period starts but my period didnt start till i was about 13. since then i been gettin the white discharge all the time if im not on my period the discharge is comin out. i have to go to the bathroom before i have sex becuase if i dont it will be all over him. why am i like this and what can i do?
Avatar f tn It changes at different times during a women's cycle too. This starts at puberty before a girl gets her first period. Which sounds like the case here. You say it itches? That could be a slight yeast infection and a cream which can be bought over the counter will help with the itching. Also warm baths with salt will help too. Try wearing looser fitting underwear and clothing, that's soft and light cotton material and that should help. Since it's summer...
Avatar n tn This can cause bloating, flatulence, and an increased number of bowel movements. If you start taking Advil or Aleve the day before your period starts, it'll cut down on prostaglandin production, and should reduce your symptoms. Taking Gas-X and/or a half-dose of Imodium AD may also help. Cutting back on your sodium and caffeine intake, and exercising are other self-care measures.
Avatar n tn You have more chance to get pregnant having unprotected sex two weeks before your period than the day before your period. Ovulation usually occurs approximately 2 weeks into the middle of your cycle. Sometimes women don't ovulate in the 2 week period - maybe you're one of them. If you unsure if you're pregnant, than take a HPT or get a blood test from your GP or GYN.
Avatar f tn Hello all. So, my period usually starts late within the month (25th-31st it could start) but it is only the 10th of the month and I've been spotting. The spotting does get on my panties. It's brownish, but when I wipe its a light red color. I have been having unprotected sex pretty regularly, so I'm afraid that this could be a sign of pregnancy. I haven't had any other symptoms though. What is going on?
1384186 tn?1281464166 Personally, I am the most susceptible to it right before my period starts. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn I am 2 and a half months pregnant and also noticed a slight increase in discharge, good to know it will only get worse!
Avatar n tn i started having a white clear thick discharge 2 days ago and now it is light brown/peach/pink thick discharge....i am supposed to be on my period right now. can you help me figure out what is going on?
Avatar f tn Anyways, for the past week and a half I have been having very light tan discharge accompanied by a substantial amount of watery like discharge that literally soaks my underwear - been having to change them 2-3 times a day but just can't keep them dry. I have never before in my life had this type of discharge-always white or clear when I'm not on my period and never soaking my underwear.
789236 tn?1329897031 Hi, An increase in thick white discharge is pretty common a day or two before your period starts, during pregnancy, at puberty, or during breastfeeding. Are you on any oral contraceptives? That could also contribute to an increase in discharge. If it doesn't itch, burn, or there is no foul odor to it, it should be perfectly normal. However if it persists and really bothers you, then it can't hurt to be checked by a doctor just to make sure all is well and to ease your mind.
