Post of The Month (August)

Meggles is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"my recent post and a comment from another user has made me realise that self care is so important.

I wanted to start a thread in the Health and Wellbeing section of the boards about self care.

Self care is provided by you, for you

I know a lot of us are struggling at the moment with different aspects of our own lives, and sometimes we get so lost in these we forget to take time for ourselves. This tread is, a Reminder to you to take time out for yourself during the difficult times.

down in the comments I would really love for people to share ideas and tips about self- care. to remind ourselves and others in the community.

My way of self care when i recognise ( or someone recognises i have neglected myself) is:

Take a walk and admire whats around me ( take as long as needed)
treat myself to a bath with a bathbomb and bubbles ( bubbles are important)
make a hot drink and just sit down with a film.

Please feel free to share your ideas!

The Mix have a guide to self-care which you can find here."

How much discharge is normal?

  • How much discharge is normal?

    This is for women. How much female discharge is normal on an average day? I have yearly female check ups and the rest of the fun stuff so I know that there is nothing physically "wrong" with me. I just feel as though I discharge more than normal. Always have. I have so much it is always visible and obvious when the day is over. Every once in a while it gets to the point where I can actually feel wet. I apologize for the question being so gross, but I have wondered for years and I thought I would finally ask since here I can do it anonomysly.

    I have lived with a few girls and they also discharge a fair bit. One in particular near oozes. So I'd say the average is more than you'd think.

        Good questions...

        To be able to do an average you must check shit loads of women first I guess...

        For my experience, so far, it has been different everytime...

        I know this was a question for women, but nevermind...

          When you do laundry for *counts in head* four... five... six girls and all their knickers look a bit on the 'crusty' side, you assume thats normal for women.

          I'd only worry about a discharge's colour and consistency, but I am a quack so what do I know?

            I'm not really sure, I think it a bit like the question we had on here a few weeks back about how often you pass solids, everyone is different and what is normally for you may not be normal for someone else. I would say if there has been no sudden increase and its not making you feel itchy down there and it does not smell. Then I would say its fine (personal opinion).
            Good things come to those who wait....God it must be my turn now??!

              Hey there

              Like t'others have said it will vary from girlie to girlie - and also it'll get more obvious at the middle of the month when you ovulate. For me it can vary, some months I can be fairly dry, but other months I can get quite a lot.

              I reckon that so long as there's no pain, no odour and it's a normal colour and isn't lumpy or thick (sorry to be so graphic folks) then you're ok. If it changes then go see your GP.

                it can vary at different times in your cycle, and it can also vary depending on your age. I remember when i was first starting puberty i used to get loads, but now i dont get that much at all apart from at certain times of the month.
                If it smells weird or theres more of it than usual, then get it checked by a doctor.

                  When I got my last smear she said mine was naturally quite heavier, heavier than most girls. She offered to quarterise my vad but I politely declined. :shocking:

                        I think that's how you spell it. To quarterise means to close a wound, by putting a lighted splint in there. People that get a lot of nose bleeds can get their noses quartised and it seals it up. She wanted to do that with my lady bits and I was not for havin any of it.

                          yep, remind me never to let a guy do my laundry. I didnt realised they checked for crusty bits.
                          Wonder if he tasted it too?
