I am a 21 year-old virgin. My period ended about 10 days ago. For the past couple of days I have experienced some heavy transparent discharge and today as i wiped myself after urination, I noticed a little amount of blood on the toilet paper along with more transparent discharge. Is this normal?
Vaginal discharge that is clear and without odor can be normal and may increase in amount due to your hormone levels during your menstrual cycle. However, discharge that has an odor, discolored, associated with vaginal itchiness or irritation should be checked out by a physician; there may be an infection or inflammation.
