Excess vaginal fluid
Posted on: 08/28/2007
Ok i know everyone SHOULD get wet to aid sex.. but im having a major problem in the fact im getting majorly wet. I seem to produce a lot of.. whatever it is.. And im not sure its natural. Im 18 and female.. and its only when having penetrative sex that it happens. I literally "flow", and its like a clear liquid, my boyfriends penis and abdomen ends up looking like a glazed doughnut. Theres so much of it, ever time he pulls back out more "liquid" comes and there ends up being a puddle on the sheets. Is that normal? and if not is there anyway to stop it. It gets a bit annoying, as things end up getting so "slippery" that his penis wont stay in, or it wont go in it just slips about the place. Please help me 2 understand why im getting so wet n what it is/if its normal.
So this is totally normal. Just like there are lots of different hair colors--our bodies respond to sex differently. Some women make a little bit of fluid, some a whole lot. It tends to get less as you age, so at some point this will probably decrease.
Sometimes women will notice a difference when they are on Birth Control pills--that may make you a little drier--you could try that if you wanted to.
In general guys tend to think how "wet" we are indicates how good of lover they are. So most men will think they are just doing a great job when you respond with a lot of lubrication. So don't apologize or act like there is any problem.
