Hello Frida, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Basically, the vagina always produces fluid or mucus to keep the vagina moist. At certain times such as just before ovulation or approaching menstruation, the production of this fluid can increase until it comes out like a clear, whitish discharge from the vagina. The use of hormonal contraceptives, orgasm, and pregnancy can also increase the production of this fluid from the vagina.
Actually, as long as the discharge from the vagina is clear or white, odorless, does not cause symptoms such as itching, pain, burning sensation, pain when urinating, or redness of the genitals, there is nothing for you to worry about. most likely this is normal. If the discharge is accompanied by other symptoms mentioned above, then you should immediately see a gynecologist for further evaluation and treatment.
Meanwhile, some of the things you can do:
Keep your vagina clean. Wash only with water only, no need to use certain soaps.
Do not do douching using chemicals or certain traditional ingredients
Use underwear that absorbs sweat and isn't too tight
Change your underwear when it's wet or use a panty liner and change it every time it's wet or every 3-4 hours
Do not wear outer pants that are too tight and multi-layered
Have healthy sexual relations
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
