Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

Your discharge is common, normal and healthy. Discharge is there for several reasons - to lubricate and to clean out the vaginal area, for example.

From Dr. Bruce McLucas, who has contributed to EmpowHER, via the Fibroid Treatment Collective...


Vaginal discharge is normal and is the body’s way of keeping your vagina healthy and clean. By producing secretions of normal vaginal discharge, it maintains the natural balance of the normal vaginal environment. It’s often clear or milky and the color and thickness may change with your monthly cycle.

Per your question, there is nothing you can do about it but there is no need to - it's perfectly normal!

I hope this has helped,
