Bleached crotch in black underwear?!?!?! - Page 3

I have no idea, but it does eventually bleach out my black yoga pants (I go commando in them).
Now that HAS to be embarassing

I noticed this when I was a teenager but it seems to have cleared up as an adult.

At the time I thought it was a mixture of vaginal secretions and semen, as it seemed to happen after a midnight rendevous with my boyfriend.

Imagine my embarrassment when she took me aside and suggested I might want to wear pantyliners to stop discoloring my underwear...THE HORROR, OH MY THE HORROR!!!

I've heard it is caused by a high acid content, but I've never asked anyone about it. Just Google.
O.M.G. Did you and I date the same guy?? His mother insisted on doing my laundry all the time (She didn't trust the machines in the dorm.) And we had a very similar conversation!

In any case, this has happened to me for years. Even my favorite pajama pants have it because I don't wear undies with them to bed. I just always assumed that it was a CM thing.

: it happens to me as well. Only in the last few years tho. I also have a problem with holes being worn into my undies right at the front just above the crotch seam. But I figured that one out.....it was were i kept the hair super short and it was rubbing a hole in them :

Another sister here! This is so funny. Thank you thank you thank you for posting this! I don't think I could talk to anyone about this! It happens to my black underwear as well as my darker-coloured underwear... all cotton.

I'm embarassed whenever my husband folds the laundry.

Ohmygosh, I can't believe there is a thread about this! It happens to me, too. I've always wondered why but can't bring myself to ask my doctor.

Me too. : I have a lot of CM, maybe that's it, like other's said.

This happens to me, too. Do we need to start the acidcrotch tribe?

ok--i'll join in, too. i was just lamenting about this (to myself!) the other day. i seem to have the opposite problem, not the bleaching one. all of my lighter colored undies are stained dark yellowish. it's horrible. i have to wear a liner almost every day (i actually just purchased some cloth ones). i, too, always wondered how women could go "commando." after i gave birth, i noticed that my cm began to follow the pattern they talk about in the fertility awareness book--i actually had dry days. now, 2 years pp, i'm back to where i was pre-pregnancy, cm every day, and towards the end of my cycle comes the staining variety...

thanks to the op for bringing this up--who can you talk to about this anyway?!!

Hey guys I know its been a few days since you were talking about this but just in case you check back, I did check with my doctor a few years ago and she prescribed a med called acigel. I can't remember if i needed a RX or not I think the pharmacist just had to order it for me. Hope it helps. I did not have bleached underwear for awhile just after one treatment.
post #54 of 88
Me too! Although I think I just peed myself from laughing so hard from reading this thread.
post #55 of 88
Well, count me in! I've always wondered about that too and I have to say it's only happened since I've had kids too.

But then I only pee when I laugh since having kids too

Ummm.... Not to rain on anyone's parade or anything....
But are ALL of you saying (like at least 1 PP did) that the "bleaching" effect makes the fabric orange?
If so, it may be neither a girl thing nor a crotch thing exclusively. We have this issue with our sheets and towels, and I'm reasonably certain that at least some of the problem is coming from my DH! I thought he had acidic sweat or something. I can't figure it out, but there are orange smears and blotches all over my nice new towels. (Of course, the old cheap towels remain unaffected...)

i think this is different...you may have a lot of iron in your water. we have this, too, and sometimes things do get an orange stain. do your toilets, shower curtains, etc. ever get an orange ring? if so, it's likely iron.

OH my god!!! I'm not the only one!!!?????

This started happening to me when I got pregnant. I didn't know what to think about it...I can't believe I just stumbled upon 3 pages of thread about it...Hehe.
