Or you are just sitting at work and you feel a little wet down there. What exactly is happening?  The answer is gonna be different for all. What exactly is going on, can only be known to that female. 

  • It  might happen that the wetness felt down in your underwear (that feels somewhat like a watery substance) is not any fluids that came because of sexual arousal.
  • You might feel a little bit warmer, a rise in temperature down there. The female may feel your intimate areas, including genitals getting warm, and your underwear getting damp, moist, or even soaked. You may feel slight cramping in your stomach and have a full house of roller coaster! Your menstrual cycle or if you are bloated can have a high effect on this.

Is it Urine or Lubrication? Or is it Water making you wet?


Most females find it difficult to immediately identify what kind of fluid has come out, especially if you feel a leak at the most random times. Such kind of fluid or liquid often remains unnoticed until the woman goes to the washroom or checks her underwear. 

If the fluid is kind of mucus-like in texture, that can be cervical fluid. Now you need to understand that the cervical fluid is not because of sexual arousal. Cervical fluid is composed of carbs, proteins, and amino acids. It can readily vary in texture, color, or consistency. It just depends on your menstrual cycle and hormone levels in the body. 

Hold tight! It is normal, nothing you need to worry about. Cervical fluids are just the body’s natural response. But, if the fluids are green, smelly, or have a cottage-cheese kind of texture, it could be a sign of infection. Get an appointment with a gynecologist in that case. Such fluids are not supposed to cause any pain or discomfort. If that happens with you, you better get medical advice.
