Its simply called vaginal secretion, and it is completely normal. Its part of the bodies natural cleaning mechanism to keep harmful bacteria, yeasts, and other microbes out of the vaginal canal. It is a secretion that has some enzymes in it as well as a buffering agent to keep it slightly acidic which favors lactic acid bacteria (completely normal in a healthy vagina). Now if this secretion is thicker than normal, that may indicate a yeast infection or other problems. You may want to see your gynecologist or general practitioner for a regular exam.

As to stopping it, you can't really stop it. Sorry. It is a healthy process and you would be very unhappy without it because of all the other nasty problems that can occur. I'll again repeat that if this discharge has changed recently and become heavier it may indicate a problem or an infection of some kind which you should see a medical practitioner. You can by products in stores that can help with controlling this secretion from getting on your clothes.

I hope that helps you.
