Are you on any hormonal BC or just condoms? Any other meds? Has your diet changed at all (more/less dairy etc)?

Is it a constant flow or just at certain times of the month? It could just be the cervical mucus telling you you’re going to ovulate.

Either way, I wouldn’t worry about it. There is no “normal” for us girls, and as long as you trust your OB and she says it’s fine, it’s probably fine.

I suggest not even using the wash that you mentioned. Just good ol’ soap and water is fine. By any chance are you using the Nuva Ring? That can change vaginal discharge.

When you go to your doctor, do you take a shower immediately before going?  Maybe if you are perfectly clean before you go to your doctor, he isn’t able to see what you are seeing.

You should start timing the change each month.  “Snotty” secretians are actually normal during ovulation because that is what makes it easy for the sperm to travel.  On the other side the first few days after your period has ended are the driest of the month.  Chart to see if you having the same changes at the same time during each month…that will help you feel better 🙂

Assuming you are not on hormonal birth control, the pattern you are describing is exactly what happens to your body during your normal monthly cycle. Write down the pattern, including when you get your period, and see if there is a rhythm to it. Then get the book “Taking Charge of Your Fertility” by Toni Weschler and compare what your body does with what is described in the book. Dollars to doughnuts it is the same, which means you are functioning as intended and have nothing to worry about. The changes are a result of the different hormone levels in your body at various times of the month. You also have to trust your husband to be honest with you that he loves you and finds you attractive, and not second guess yourself. I don’t think you have anything to worry about, but reading the book might help you get more insight into the way your body works.

I agree with what the other ladies are saying. If you’ve been screened for everything than you should put your mind at ease. This all sounds normal! Another thing you have to think about is maybe you’ve come to a point where your hormones have finally levelled off. Some women take until their mid twenties to have regular hormone levels (ie: skin break outs finally leave, pms is more managable, etc.), so maybe what your experiencing is your body finally coming into a regular flow of balanced hormones. I would relax and feel good about yourself.

I’ve always been told that anything with a yellowish or greenish tint is not good, that only clear or white is okay. I’ve heard this from doctors, articles and womens health and other women etc… This is something that’s clearly bothering you and making you anxious and unhappy, I think it’s worth a second opinion, even just for the peace of mind. It really could be nothing at all- I hope you get to the root of your issue soon. 🙂
