When you are about to start your period, sometimes there is a lot of white discharge that builds up very unpleasantly. The white discharge before your period is actually a form of mucus that is naturally produced from the neck of the womb—scientifically called the cervix. The amount of white discharge will vary throughout your menstrual cycle and most pregnant women will get something that is known as a "pregnancy discharge". A healthy white discharge does not have a strong smell or color. There is the uncomfortable wetness, but you should not have any itching or soreness around your vagina.
White discharge before period: Causes and other colors explained
Guest over a year ago. I haven't gotten my first period yet. I recently went to a four-day basketball camp and while I was there, I noticed that I had a particularly large amount of discharge in my underwear. I figured that was just normal because I was running and exercising more than I normally did, therefore my body was cleaning itself.
About 6 months to 1 year before a girl gets her first period , her body may start to make vaginal discharge. This is normal and due to changing hormone levels. The discharge helps keep the vagina healthy. Discharge also can vary in color, ranging from clear to white or off-white. The amount of discharge can depend on a girl's menstrual cycle.
You feel shame to ask your mother or friends as it is very private thing. First vaginal discharge means puberty hormonal changes in your body already started. Many girls notice a yellow or white stain in the crotch of their underpants as they go through puberty.
