Doctor :   mucus discharge is normally seen from the perineum or the vaginal orifice
User :   im pretty sure because its only after i go to the bathroom and there is nothing on my underwear so i doubt that its a vaginal problem
Doctor :   but, ina young female, without any medical issues, like constipation or piles etc, there should not be any mucus discharge
User :   could it be a vaginal problem???
Doctor :   but if you are referring to mucus in stools, it could be seen occasionally
