Default Re: vaginal discharge IS mucous.

You can get different types of mucous, mucous isnt just snot lol!
There are mucosal cells in the vagina/cervix that secrete it.

It is normal and healthy and is there to keep the vagina clean, moist and to help prevent/fight etc any infections.
The texture of it changes with a girls menstrual cycle as its function varies throughout the cycle.
A change in the discharge can be an indication of an infection, however, its presence alone does not indicate that there is anything wrong!

I hope this clarifies a few things
