We got a few questions from our readers about wetness down there and went straight to the expert, certified sex therapist Dr. Janet Brito, for answers. The glands in your cervix and vaginal wall create essential lubrication to protect your genital area from injury or tearing, and keep your vagina clean and moist. Depending on where you are in your cycle and hormone levels, the amount of cervical fluid could vary. Keep in mind that this fluid, or something similar, also appears during sex.
The responsible glands for producing lubrication for sexual activity are the Bartholin glands located to the right and left of the vaginal opening and the Skene glands close to the urethra. For some, the type of birth control you use may increase vaginal wetness, as estrogen tends to increase the production of vaginal fluids. If this bothers you, consider asking your doctor about an alternative birth control that has less estrogen. Infections, like bacterial vaginosiscould cause a feeling of wetness, as the wetness helps to move bacteria out of your vaginal canal.
Vaginal lubrication also increases near ovulation to increase the chances of fertilization by providing an easier passage for the sperm to travel. Cervical fluid is made up of carbohydrates, proteins, and amino acids, and it is the most informative of the vaginal fluids. It changes in texture, color, and consistency, depending on your cycle and hormone levels.
Cervical fluids are a natural bodily response, but if you have fluids that are green, smelly, or have a cottage cheese texture, it is best to check with your doctor, as this could be a of infection. Another type of fluid that could be down there is vaginal sweatwhich comes from your sweat glands. During sexual excitement, your vaginal area swells to due increased blood flow. This vasocongestion creates a watery solution called vaginal transudate.
Stress can cause you to sweat more, including in your vaginal area. To combat this, wear breathable underwear, stay trimmed, and practice good hygiene. As mentioned earlier, the Skene glands known informally as the female prostate have a role in lubrication and fluids. These glands moisten the vaginal opening and produce a fluid that is known to hold antimicrobial properties that protect the urinary tract region. The Skene glands are also known to be responsible for squirting, possibly because they are located close to the lower end of the urethra. Debates exist about whether female ejaculate is real and whether it is actually urine.
This is called arousal non-concordance. Other situations for being wet without being horny could be due to viewing something erotic, or reading something arousing, and your body naturally becoming physiologically responsive. For the most part, you have nothing to worry about.
When it comes to your sweat glands, your vulva has numerous sweat and oil glands that keep your vagina wet. In these cases, it is best to maintain your hygiene, wear panty liners, or wear cotton underwear to keep things cooler. If you are wet, and it smells fishy, rotten, or abnormal, it is best to call your doctor, as this may be a of other problems. Your discharge can say a lot about your health.
