      You asked:

    Why are there lumps in my discharges?

     
     
     
      Gill Says:    
     

    Discharges contain albumin proteins that coagulate when they come into contact with oxygen. As long as they don’t smell unpleasant or you don’t have them in combination with itching, it’s perfectly normal.

      You asked:

    Why do discharges smell bad?

     
     
     
      Gill Says:    
     

    A normal discharge has no smell when it leaves your body. But as soon as it comes into contact with oxygen, it can start to smell. The smell can also differ at different times during the menstrual cycle. You can stay fresh by showering and changing your underwear or pantyliner every day. You should also let your genital region breathe, so sleeping without panties is a good idea. You should wash your genital region with warm water once a day, and when you have your period, you can wash it twice a day. You should use a soap designed for personal hygiene – good ones are available from the pharmacy. If your discharges start to smell bad, you should see a doctor because you might have an infection. Find out more about unpleasant smelling discharges in the article entitled “Itching and strange smells.”

    I’m 10 years old. My discharges are black like old blood. What’s happening?

     
     
     
      Gill Says:    
     

    Congratulations! You’ve probably just had your first period. I assume you’ve spoken to your mother or another adult who can help you with sanitary towels.

      You asked:

    How soon after the discharge does the period come?

     
     
     
      Gill Says:    
     

    Det er helt forskjellig fra jente til jente. Noen kan ha utflod i mange år, andre nesten ikke noe i det hele tatt før mensen kommer.
