A 30-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to have clear fluid leaking from my vagina in the third trimester?

Dr. David Fein
Specializes in Preventive Medicine
No: All pregnant women will produce a vaginal "discharge" due to the normal, healthy production of cervical and vaginal mucus. Leaking clear fluid is always a warning sign and should be evaluated immediately.

Yes: It is normal to have a lot of clear mucus in the third trimester. You want to speak to your doctor to make sure it is not amniotic fluid.
Dr. Kathryn Mercer
Obstetrics and Gynecology 34 years experience
Yes: There is more discharge as the pregnancy progresses and many women find they are more comfortable wearing a panty shield for the last few months. If you think you could have broken your water, you should see your doctor.
