I have recently been getting a white, sticky discharge that is rather smelly. I am 16 and have never had sex, there's no burning or itching, what could this possibly be?
Best Answer
Once you start puberty a white and/or clear, non-foul smelling discharge is normal. The vagina is self-cleaning. This same discharge increases the closer you get to ovulation and when you are sexually aroused. How much water do you drink?

Different Types of Discharge:

White: Thick, white discharge is common at the beginning and end of your cycle. Normal white discharge is not accompanied by itching. If itching is present, thick white discharge can indicate a yeast infection.

Clear and stretchy: This is "fertile" mucous and means you are ovulating.

Clear and watery: This occurs at different times of your cycle and can be particularly heavy after exercising.

Yellow or Green: May indicate an infection, especially if thick or clumpy like cottage cheese or has a foul odor.

Brown: May happen right after periods, and is just "cleaning out" your vagina. Old blood looks brown.


Different types of infections:

Signs of yeast infections:
White, cottage cheese-like discharge
Swelling and pain around the vulva
Intense itching

Signs of bacterial vaginosis:
A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge
A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap
Itching or burning
Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva

Signs of trichomoniasis
A watery, yellowish or greenish bubbly discharge
An unpleasant odor
Pain and itching when urinating
Most apparent after your period

    Probably a yeast infection, they don't always itch. Might tell your mom or see a doc. Doesn't sound like anything serious, but never let an infection go, they can get worse and REALLY get nasty.

    You may have a bacterial infection. This can be caused by many things and probably is not your fault directly. You can use vagasil to clear this up. If this does not work after a few days go to a doctor.
