When Should I be Worried?
Some women may feel ashamed or pressured to change their bodies, even going so far as to undergo reconstructive surgery. While this is certainly an option, understanding that there is no “perfect” or “normal” vagina or vulva is empowering.
Infection or Injury
It is only considered a problem when there is an infection, injury, or deformation of your vagina that hinders your normal functions.
Dry or Wet
A woman’s vagina can be a window to her reproductive and overall health. Phases of dry and wet are normal throughout a menstrual cycle and can indicate when a woman is fertile or not.
Discharge is also normal throughout the day. However, the consistency, color, and odor can be telling. Infections are never normal and should be treated by a doctor.
Watch out for spotting or bleeding when you are not expecting your period, green or yellow discharge, and pain as these can be signs of disease.
