Excessive vaginal discharge, but no infection watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    For the past year, I've had discharge so heavy that I have to wear tissue in my underwear. I feel disgusting all the time. It's yellowish colour. It doesn't smell, or itch, it's just very thick, throughout my whole cycle. I don't douche. I only wear cotton underwear.

    I have seen 6 doctors, 3 of which were gynecologists, I've had five swab tests, I've been tested for everything & everything is negative. I have no infection and doctors have been like "nothing we can do, byyyeee." They haven't given me any suggestions.

    I'm losing my mind. I have NO confidence. I can't deal with this anymore but have NO idea how to fix it. My ex boyfriend even complained about it... I'm so depressed, please help.

    Discharge varies from woman to woman - I know several women who wear panty liners throughout the month - and if you've got six doctors going you don't have an infection, it's highly likely that you really don't have an infection.

    Are there any times when it's less?

    Apart from the idiot ex, what do you see as the problem?

    Panty liners would be more comfortable than tissue. Discharge also varies throughout life and could lessen with time

    I have the exact same problem but mine started 2 years ago, docs say they can't do anything, now waiting for gyne appointment next month. I have white/yellow discharge all day everyday and there's like a constant liquid, my pants just feel wet all the time and a couple times a day the thick yellow/white gunk will appear? Everything is irritated cuz there's constantly liquid. All tests have come back clear, I had BV a couple times throughout the 2 years but all my recent tests (majority of this year) have come back clear? I understand that everyone has different amounts of discharge but mine was NORMAL 2 years ago and then I got BV and from then on I've had crazy amounts of discharge, sometimes thrush, sometimes BV would come back? I only got thrush cuz of the strong antibiotics the docs were giving me. I have no confidence and constantly uncomfortable, I dumped my bf cuz I couldn't handle him seeing me and it anymore and I have to go to the toilet a lot to clean myself and even my friends have noticed I disappear a lot. I am so exhausted and upset! Did your symptoms get any better or did you find out what was causing so much discharge? Please please help x
