Different Types of Discharge & what each means

Let’s hope you noticed that there are different types of discharge coming out of your yoni lol, but did you know that each indicate a different thing?

Below is a what each different type of cervical fluid mean …

  • 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 it is 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.
  • Spotting Blood/Brown Discharge— This may occur when you are ovulating/mid-cycle. Sometimes early in pregnancy you may have spotting or a brownish discharge at the time your period would normally come.

 & here’s a general pattern starting from right after your period ends:

  1. Dry
  2. Wet
  3. Sticky/Rubbery
  4. Creamy (lotion/milky)
  5. Eggwhite (stretchy, clear) *** OVULATION
  6. Dry
  7. Wet (right before menstruation)

& then cycle repeats.

Did you notice how several hours before your period starts, you might notice a wet sensation but no blood. Water is the first thing your uterine lining sheds, & the rest of the lining will soon follow. The amount of times I ran to the toilet thinking I just got my period but then there was nothing… now I know it is pre-shedding of water, a signal our body gives us few hours before the big event! lol


*** This will obviously not occur if you are on the pill as the hormonal pill stops your body from ovulating.
