    I am perimenopausal and have experience this water discharge from time to time. I think it might be hormonal but not sure. Also online it says it could be bacterial vaginosis. I have been experiencing some irritation down there (and had the watery discharge today) and should probably get it looked at but since this happened to me about a year ago and I went to Dr. and got it all checked out, tests came back fine, so it either went away on own or is mild that it didn't show up.

    Yes! As i type this! I will cramp like I'm ovulating then feel something and rush to bathroom and its nothing but a very watery discharge. Of course i wasn't having this symptom back in July when I last saw my gyn for a hysteroscopy.

    Also my bloodwork says I'm menopausal but it still hasn't been a complete 12 months without a bleed of some type.

    You're not alone.

    You definitely need to get it checked. Any discharge after menopause is not considered the norm .... don't worry but just get it checked so you can put your mind at ease.

    it probably is hormonal but you don't want to put off going to the doctor in case something else is going on.

      if there is brownish color and you are post menopause, you will need to go to the gyno and have a couple of tests. I had the same thing and had both a pelvic and transvag ultrasound (came back normal) followed by an endometrial biopsy.

      it is more than likely nothing to be worried about but you need to rule out anything more serious.... and if you do it at the first sight of anything suspicious you can get it taken care of straight away.

    Not to be too gross, but is there a smell? Do you feel any burning or discomfort? Like Cher says, it could be bacterial vaginosis or another infection. There is an over the counter test in the US for this. It's by the same famous company that does the OTC yeast infection medicine. I just used it to test because I had some discharge and burning.
