I’m dealing with an ‘intimate’ problem and I’m embarrassed to talk about it. I’ve turned 16 a few weeks ago, and since then I’ve started noticing some kind of egg white mucus coming from… well, my vagina! I don’t remember having had this before, so I’m pretty scared. I’ve noticed there’s a really heavy flow around the middle of my menstrual cycle. I have to wear a tampon just to make sure I don’t dirt my underwear – it’s really annoying. And if I don’t change it often, it starts smelling.
I’ve never had sex, so I’m really confused. What’s this stretchy fluid, and is it a reason of concern? Should I talk to my mother about it?
