Excessive Vaginal Discharge


It is normal to have a moderate amount of vaginal discharge. About 1-2 teaspoonfuls a day, which is 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. There is a distinction between normal and abnormal heavy vaginal discharge.

Normal  Excessive Discharge

The following conditions may produce profuse amount of vagina discharge. It is normal if 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 –  It is normal to have reddish, pinkish vaginal discharge for the first six weeks after the birth of the baby. This discharge is blood, mucus and sloughed-off tissue from the endometrium.

Lactation – Vaginal discharge may increase during breast feeding

Sexual excitement and during intercourse – This increase in vaginal secretions helps in vaginal lubrication which makes sex pleasurable.

Pre-puberty – Vaginal estrogen levels goes up during the on-set of puberty. Which results in more vaginal discharge.

New born baby girl – A new born baby girl may have excessive discharge or abnormal vaginal bleeding for the first few days. This is due to the effect of the mother's estrogen. As the estrogen level in the new born falls this discharge tapers off and then stops altogether.

Emotional stress - Stress can have an effect on vaginal discharge.

Use of oral contraceptives – see cervical ectropion below**

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

The following scenario can cause excessive genital discharge. There is also vaginal itching, swelling, redness in the vulva and skin lesions too.

  • 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. The causes of which are STDS and birth control devices such as diaphragm and cervical caps.

Effects of Normal Excessive Vaginal Discharge

Constant vaginal wetness is very uncomfortable. Other than that, it can disrupt a woman’s daily life in other ways too.

  • It interrupts her daily routine as you have to change underwear often. Or she has to wear panty liners all the time. Which can cause vaginal infection.
  • Without panty liners it becomes a social embarrassment. The excessive vaginal discharge wets and soils her clothing, which, of course is very awkward!
  • A too wet vagina makes sexual intercourse messy and not pleasurable. The penis keep slipping out. There is not much 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.
