Good day everyone.

I am a nursing student. My ultimate goal is to be a travel nurse.

I am happily married for over 12 years and have 3 children: ages 6, 4, and 2. Family is the most important thing in the world and I want to help families work out problems so they do not have to be torn apart.

If your family is as important to you as mine is to me, get the help you need. If you do not like my advice, I respect that but look for someone that works for your needs.

Your family is worth it!

Okay, so here lately I've been really wet 24/7, and I haven't been horny AT ALL! I don't understand why I've been so wet for. My discharge doesn't have a smell, or a color. Its clear.

*Kind of personal information below, but I don't care.

Today I was taking a poop, and before I wiped, I pee'd. Well, when I went to wipe, I noticed something long, thin dangling from my vagina hole, and I wiped it and it was like gel, or jelly.

It was clear, and no smell, && I rubbed it between my fingers, and it didn't come apart. Kind of like the silly putty that farts when you press it in the cup and it makes a sound. It didn't leave any access discharge on my fingers, it stayed together.

Im alittle scared, because I don't know whats wrong with me. I showed my mom, and I told her where it came from, and she goes "Get it away! You got some kind of disease!" But I dont thank I do? (link)
You asked a follow up question but you are "anonymous" so this is the only way i knew how to answer you; to edit my original answer. Anyway, we are women which means there is nothing normal about us including our cycles. You ovulate every month but you may not get this mucous patch every month. I have always been fairly regular with my mucous patch and found it helpful in conceiving my children. As luck would have it, we are trying to get pregnant again and now that i NEED a sign that i am ovulating i only get the mucos about every 3 to 4 months! Most inconvenient lol but thats the way it is. But i want to stress- there is nothing wrong with you. You are a normal ovulating woman who just got her first (gross lol) mucous patch. I actually encourage you to see a doc like mom wants. You can get further educsted on this and as it seems mom is not in the majority and is not familiar with this phenomenon, it could help her too.

You did not mention your age but you just described 100% what many women's discharge is like during ovulation. It is called a mucous patch. After your period you start to devekop discharge which starts a bit watery but gradually gets thicker and more stringy the closer you get to the 14 day mark. It will be much like egg whites from a chicken egg; long and stringy and does not immediately break apart. This will last maybe 2 or 3 days when you are ovulating and then will gradually get less the closer you get to your period.

I hope your mom was just playing with you. It sounds as though you just have the same thing that probably 80% of all women have that is their sign of ovulation and it is these kinds of things we really need to have a woman in our lives we can discuss this with.

You do not have a disease- you are simply maturing.

Im 17 by the way. Sorry to leave that out. Thank you so much for clearing that up. I really thought something was wrong with me. My mom was being serious, because now she thinks I need to go to the doctor. How many times do you ovulate? Im 17 and I've had a period since I was 10 and this is the first time this has ever happened? Its it rare? Or do you just not ovulate as much as you have periods?
