Ladies at times often suffer and deal with discomfort situations in silence. For instance, have you ever felt like you always have discharge in your underwear such that if feels like you wet yourself? Yeah! It can really be uncomfortable but do not worry just yet.
The feeling that you have wet yourself can be be pretty messy and sometimes very annoying. However, you need to understand that discharge is a normal part of being a woman.
You do not need to be too self-conscious about it and it shouldn’t get you all worked up! Sometimes the consistency of the discharge may be a result of changes in the body. It can be from something as serious as an STD to something minimal, like a change in your diet.
To be on the safe side when you feel like you wet yourself, you need to look out for some warning signs. Warning signs—if it’s bad-smelling, green or yellow or cottage cheese-like, you might want to see your doc. Here’s our list of signs to know whether your discharge is healthy or not.
What else can cause that super wet feeling? Sexual arousal (from reading a steamy scene or thinking about sex) or when you’re in different stages of your menstrual cycle. When you feel that “did I just pee on myself?” sensation, it’s more than likely a sign that your period is on its way.
It can also be the result of all the working out you did in gym class. After a workout, it’s common to have an increase in discharge, and even in its thickness. But again, don’t freak out—our bodies need our discharge to cleanse the vagina and restore its pH balance.
Still, there’s no need to feel super soggy, so try wearing a pantyliner with your undies the next time you get dressed. Also, make sure that you’re wearing breathable cotton underwear (nothing too tight) as that can create added moisture that you definitely don’t want.
Have a girly week on campus! Won’t you!
