    Your discharge itself is not abnormal. It should be white or transparent and can be clear and stretchy, or clear and watery, depending on where you are in your cycle.


    The pain, though, is not normal, if it is not like the normal discomfort which can come with PMS. Pain is the way your body tells you that something may be wrong.

    If it has continued, or becomes chronic, you need to be examined by a doctor.

    There is no way to know right now what is causing it.

    I see that it has been a while since you posted, and I wondered how you are doing.  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but Paul is correct that the vaginal discharge cna be normal.  Did it develop as a new symptom? Have you started or stopped any medications recently?  The abdominal pain is a bit more worrisome, however.  I hope you were able to see a doctor and find some asnwers.


    Please consider stopping back by and letting us know how you are doing!  I'm sure others can benefit from what you've learned.


    Best of luck,
