No, discharge is not usually associated with dehydration. I'd recommend visiting a doctor to get a proper diagnosis, although certain types of discharge are entirely normal.

Does dehydration cause discharge?
If you're worried about dehydration, then rest assured that discharge is not a common symptom. Instead, I'd suggest you look out for the following signs of dehydration:

  • dizziness
  • headache or migraines
  • fatigue
  • dryness around the mouth, lips and eyes.
  • darkened urine
  • peeing less often than normal
In severe cases, you may experience symptoms like sagging skin, fits or seizures, and blood in your feces or vomit.

As far as discharge goes - your body sometimes creates discharge to clean itself out. For example, females often experience vaginal discharge, and this is a way that their reproductive organs clean themselves out.

If you're concerned about any aspect of your health, I'd recommend you book an appointment to see your local healthcare provider. You may also find internet sources such as the NHS (National Health Service) website rather helpful.
