Sources from the genital tract

The main source is the discharge liquid which seeps (sweat) through the vaginal mucosa from passing there blood and lymph vessels .  This fluid is clear and is known as transudate .  Another source of discharge from the genital tract mucosa are cancer of the uterus, which are beginning to secrete into the second phase of the menstrual cycle and secrete mucus .  Also contributing to the isolation and cancer of the cervix .  An additional source of secretions are sweat, sebaceous gland, a gland located near the opening of the urethra and prostate vestibule (Bartholin) .  All isolation ultimately mixed on the outlet of the vagina .  The composition of the secretions from the genital tract consists of exfoliated epithelial cells lining the vagina, lactic acid bacteria (bacillus Doderlein) and a small amount of white blood cells (not more than 8-10 smear) .


Normal release

The daily volume of secretions of one to four milliliters, the consistency of a thick, depending on the phase of the menstrual cycle, color transparent (can be whitish or yellowish hue), the structure can be both homogeneous and lumps .  Normal transparent allocation characterized by sour smell or lack of it .  Subjective complaints (itching, burning) are missing .  Discharge from the genital tract are present in women of any age .  In the age range from one month to release 8-10 years no .  This is due to the fact that the egg does not mature, menstruation is not, and the development of estrogen, which is responsible for allocating, minimal .  After the establishment of menstrual discharge becomes constant and vary depending on the phase of the menstrual cycle .  In the middle of the menstrual cycle, when there is a maturation of the follicle and release of the egg (ovulation), there are transparent, liquid and viscous (at resemble raw egg whites) from the genital tract .  Liquefaction discharge facilitates the promotion of sperm to meet an egg and fertilize it .  In the second, the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, the amount of mucus produced is reduced and the consistency it becomes viscous and opaque (sometimes milky), which is associated with the start of production of progesterone .  Immediately after the end of menstruation selection again become transparent, but sharply reduced the volume of their (meager) .


Transparent allocation of pregnancy

Immediately after conception appear translucent milky discharge from the genital tract. This is one of the first signs of pregnancy, which causes progesterone Progesterone - norm and pathology  Progesterone - norm and pathology
   (pregnancy hormone). Active effect of progesterone produced by the corpus luteum of the ovary can be extended to 12-14 weeks of pregnancy. After that period, approximately thirteenth week discharge becomes heavy, liquid and transparent. This is due to the enhanced production of estrogen, which influence the nature and volume of discharge. Discharges during pregnancy, despite their numbers, have no odor and subjective symptoms (itching, burning, pain during sexual intercourse). Fight with abundant normal secretions during pregnancy, you can use the daily sanitary pads.

 Mucus - what is the norm for a healthy woman


Vaginal discharge is nothing but a reflection of the activities of the female reproductive system, forming as a result of the secretory function of sexual organs. First, the appearance of mucosal secretions is associated with ovarian failure (where synthesized sex hormones). It becomes clear that the rate of girls under the age of one month and up to about ten years, there were no discharge from the genital tract. This period is called the time of physiological rest (ovaries are in "sleep" state, menstrual function is absent, and the maturation of eggs does not occur). After nine years of age when puberty begins Puberty child - stages of a complex path  Puberty child - stages of a complex path
   girls in the works include the ovaries, and the teenager appear periodic vaginal discharge. In appearance they resemble mucus raw egg whites or congee. With the onset of menstrual discharge becomes cyclical and change its properties in each phase of the cycle.

   and during it. This is related to the maximum concentration of estrogens. In just a few days before menstruation discharge milky or type of congee, which is a result of the action of progesterone. Immediately after the end of menstruation amount of bleeding is minimal, as the level of sex hormones dramatically reduced.

The composition of the vaginal discharge consists of the following components:

  • mucus glands of the cervical canal;
  • mucus uterine epithelium;
  • Bartholin mucus glands (glands vestibule);
  • secretion of sebaceous and sweat glands of the skin of the vulva;
  • transudate plasma and lymph (far from the vagina);
  • erythrocytes, thrombocytes and leukocytes;
  • microorganisms.

  • normal content of estrogen in the body;
  • glycogen in the epithelial cells (produced by lactic acid bacteria);
  • the presence of lactobacilli and lactic acid;
  • a certain level of pH, vaginal discharge;
  • belyah presence of immune factors.

By the appearance of abnormal mucous secretions in the first place, cause infections, sexually transmitted infections.
