I'm suffering from excessive wetness. I've had tests and am negative for STDs or infections.
JA: When was your last pap smear? Have you ever had an irregular pap?
Customer: Last pap was about 6 months ago and all have been normal. When getting cultures for tests mentioned above doc said everything looked healthy
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I'm hypo and my numbers increased from normal to 25 for my TSH. Doc upped my dosage about a week ago of synthroid but that's it. I have an IUD (3D one and this one is about 3 years old) and have never had children.

The wetness can be discharge from the Skene's glands. The Skene's glands are small glands on either side of the vagina whose main function is to secrete a clear watery discharge to lubricate the vagina during sexual intercourse. In most women, this discharge is minimal and not noticeable and is sufficient enough to just lubricate the vagina. Some women may get increased secretion from these glands suddenly.

The other condition to be considered is cervix erosion or ectropion. The cells of the mouth of the cervix undergoes certain changes (from squamous to columnar cells) and these cells can produce a large amount of clear discharge.

Please read the following resource:

Following treatment can be done for ectropion;

1) boric acid suppositories 600 mg vaginally at bedtime

2) cryocautery

3) electrocautery

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Would one of those conditions cause secretion even in non sexual circumstances too?

Ectropion causes more discharge even without sexual intercourse.
