Vaginal discharge "bleaching" underwear??

Has anyone ever had this problem? Prior to my surgery...I was finding that discharge was discoloring underwear...almost like a bleach stain. After THA...this problem went away but now 8 weeks later I am finding "Bleach type" spotting on underwear. This can't be normal??

I had that for years and it suddenly stopped. I had bought white underwear because of it showing up on my colored ones. Now my white ones look yellow, so I'm ready to buy that color and try it. I know that stain can't be pee or I would've been shouting an awful lot of clothes when my DS was younger. I've always been embarrassed to ask that question, too. You're definitely not the only one!

I have that problem from time to time. Since I just blurt things out to my Dr. I found out that it has to do with the acidity of the discharge. But I don't remember if it was because of too much acid or too little.

Thank you! Did your doctor suggest anything to balance the PH? Now that my underwear are not being ruined by my would be nice to not have those stains. At least, I feel better that I am not the only woman on earth that has had this problem.

I'm still having a yellow post-op discharge and find that if I soad my panties before washing them that the marks literally lift off! So, new white panties are still white. I soak them in laundry soap and cool water for about 2 hours.

That's ok, this is probably way TMI, but mine actually end up getting holes in the crotch. I figured that my Ph was very acidic. It's just wierd. I have known about my higher acid level for awhile. Gold rings and jewelry leave green rings around my fingers, neck and ears. YUCK! Now I find out that acidic environments may actually encourage cancer growth. I've been trying to eat non-acidifying foods, but my favorite things all are on the wrong side of the list
