Clear discharge

04/16/2009

Question:

I had a heavy clear discharge which felt like I was getting my period. There was no pain and had a urine test to check for infection, but none was found. What can I relate this to. I am 16 yrs old.

Answer:

Vaginal discharge can vary depending on hormones, infection or ovulation. Checking your urine will only determine if you have a urinary tract infection. You might need a vaginal exam to determine if you have an infection like yeast, bacterial vaginosis or others. It may just be related to hormonal changes in your cycle.
