Clear discharge is physiological vaginal lubrication and cervical mucus and is considered normal.

Fluid retention may fluctuate during the month as a consequence of hormonal changes. Some women use herbal products for monthly water, while if the problem is more sustained then your GP may give you a regular diuretic to take.

Expert:  Pauline replied 7 years ago.

What days of the month do you get pain?

Is the pain upper or lower abdomen?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
lower pain is immediately after period stops its like i have a ball in the left side. probably where my ovary would be???

This may be reason to see your gynaecologist as ovulation pain typically normally occurs in the days 10-14 then subsides when period starts.
