My 9 year old daughter is having discharge?

Being a woman maybe I should know this but, I am not sure so please don't judge. My 9 year old daughter started wearing a training bra about a year ago and hasn't really grown to needing more than that. I was throwing insome laundry and realized that she is having some discharge. Is this normal as a young girl or a sign that her period is quickly approaching? Thanks for the help.

  • If she complains of itching,it could be a yeast infection. If it has a fishy smell it is a yeast infection. It could be a period if those two symptoms r not present.

  • It is normal, and it means she will probably start menustrating soon. Have you talked to her about this? If not, then it's time. There are some good books about this that you can get at the livrary. The American Girl has one that is really good.

  • Sorry.... I know that discharge is normal but, does it mean that her period is coming soon or can they have discharge for quite some time before their period starts. Just realized I worded that wrong above. Thanks again.
