Female -- Vaginal Discharge/Infections
Sticky, slimy whitish/clear substance
Posted on: 12/06/2007
I'm supposed to be starting my period sometime in the next week. But the last two days I've had really bad cramps and back pain early in the morning and then it's gone in the day. I also noticed I have a sticky, slimy whitish/clear substance that I can pull out of my vagina (similar to a booger). It doesnt appear excessive in my panties but I could feel it and pulled it out in the shower, and again later in the day. There is no smell or any irritation that I can tell. Ever hear of this?? Should I make an appointment?...thanks in advance....
The discharge sounds like what normally happens when you ovulate.
I don't know why you are having the back pain. If that continues go to a medical office, please.
