Can't help with the problem but just to point out that I think you might have posted this in the wrong topic (feminism).

I've had that happen, not sure what it is, I think it could just be how black cotton reacts to discharge. As long as you have no pain or discomfort, I'm sure you're fine. Try wearing panty liners for a while, I suspect you'll find it's just normal white discharge.

I've had the same happen to me, for many years. It's normal, I know of others with the same thing happening.

Katexxy - click on the "report" button on your original post and ask MNHQ to move to health or a similar section! (And good luck with working out what's going on.)

Do a search on mumsnet for gusset bleaching. It's a thing apparently.

It's almost like it's been bleached blush

Me and my friends were talking about this only the other day. It's always on black knickers after washing. Our verdict: it's normal so don't worry. As the PP has said, use a liner if you want to avoid the staining.

normal, better to be a bleacher than a scratcher.

Bonus points for anyone who can pin this one on the patriarchy.

Vaginal secretions are slightly acidic in order to kill germs, so it's a good thing!

If we didn't live under patriarchy, underwear manufacturers would have invented acid-proof colour long ago!

Oh, and women would know that discharge is acidic and that it is not a reason to worry.

If men had vaginal secretions, knickers/pants would be free angry

This happens to me too. I hadn't thought of blaming the patriarchy but I'm more than happy to do so grin grin grin

You're excluding the trans. Not all women can bleach their underwear with discharge.
I win.

I don't think it's actually orange burns, it's just that some of the fabric dye is bleached out and leaves a less-pigmented patch of fabric behind

Isn't it more likely to be bleached by drips of urine escaping?
