Excessive Vaginal Discharge

It is normal to have a moderate amount of vaginal discharge, about 1-2 teaspoonfuls a day, enough to moisten and lubricate the vagina. But this amount may vary slightly for each individual.

But excessive vaginal discharge is like it is flowing out non-stop and messing you up. This heavy vaginal discharge can be categorized into normal and abnormal.

Normal  Excessive Discharge

The following conditions may produce copious amount of vagina discharge. This profuse discharge is considered normal since it is not disease related and its occurrence is temporary.

  • Ovulation (may start from 12th to 16th day of the monthly period)
  • Pre-menstrual – vaginal discharge may increase 1 or 2 days before the onset of your period.
  • Pregnancy – see cervical ectropion*
  • Post natal – immediately after the birth of the baby till about 6 weeks, it is normal to have reddish, to pinkish, to a gradually colorless discharge. This profuse vaginal discharge consists of blood, mucus and sloughed-off tissue from the endometrium.
  • Lactation – vaginal discharge may increase during breast feeding
  • Sexual excitement and during intercourse – increase vaginal secretions helps to lubricate the vagina and make sex pleasurable.
  • Pre-puberty – as a result of the increasing vaginal estrogen levels associated with the onset of puberty.
  • New born baby girl – there may be excessive discharge or abnormal vaginal bleeding for the first few days due to the effect of maternal estrogen. As the estrogen level falls this discharge tapers off and then stops altogether.
  • Emotional stress
  • Use of oral contraceptives – see cervical ectropion**

Cervical Ectropion

**Cervical ectropion is a condition whereby the hole in the cervix, (where the menstrual blood flows out from the uterus (womb) into the vagina) is lined with columnar cells not only inside of the hole but also around the outside of it.

And it is the columnar cells outside of the hole that cause the excessive vaginal discharge. These columnar ectropion cells are most common in women on the contraceptive pill or during pregnancy. They are not cancerous or pre-cancerous.**

Abnormal  Excessive Genital Discharge

However, if excessive genital discharge is accompanied by vaginal itching, swelling, redness in the vulva and skin lesions, it   could be caused by:-

  • Bacterial vaginosis (BV) – (greyish, smelly discharge)
  • Vaginal yeast infection (abnormal clumpy discharge, like cottage-cheese)
  • Trichomoniasis (green, frothy discharge)
  • Cervicitis - the inflammation of the cervix which can be caused by infection from STDs or birth control devices such as diaphragm and cervical cap.

Do refer to NHS Choices for more information on vaginal discharge and thrush (vaginal yeast infection).

Effects of Normal Excessive Vaginal Discharge

Besides feeling uncomfortable from the constant vaginal wetness, excessive genital discharge can impact a woman’s daily life in other ways too.

  • It interrupts her daily routine as you have to change underwear throughout the day or wear pantyliners consistently. Frequent use of panty shields can affect your vaginal hygiene  and lead to vaginal infection.
  • Without panty liners it becomes a social embarrassment when the excessive vaginal discharge wets and soils her clothing, which, of course is very embarrassing!
  • Too wet conditions in the vagina makes sexual intercourse messy and not pleasurable (too slippery causing the penis to slip out often), thus drastically reducing joy and sensation for both partners.
  • It makes oral sex almost impossible. It is a great turn-off for your partner to go down on you.
