Have white discharge. Been going to the gym. Has my hymen torn?

Hi, I am 20 years old...I have been having white discharge since a long time now but it has been normal and never gave me any pain... Today when i was at the gym...I was using the elepticals machine... and i felt a sudden flow kind of feeling...I took it normal but later when i checked I have a heavy flow of white discharge along with some blood . Now I am scared if my hymen would have been torn?

Hello and welcome to HCM,

Whitish discharge per vaginum is called leukorrhea.
Small amount of vaginal discharge is common in healthy women.
An increase in quantity and/or change in physical and physical charateristics of the vaginal discharge is called leukorrhea.
The various causes of leukorrhea are:
1. Infections of the genital tract especially cervix
2. Congestion of pelvic organs
3. High estrogenic stimulation
4. During sexual excitement
5. Early pregnancy

White discharge admixed with blood may be due to onset of menstruation or due to rupture of hymen (if there is a history of trauma as in your case).
Hymen may have ruptured in case your movements caused such an impact on the hymen.
It is difficult to confirm a rupture without examination.

Thanks and take care
Dr Shailja P Wahal
