For over 10 years, teens have been asking us questions on every topic imaginable. While we are no longer taking new questions, we have a wealth of information we would like to share with teenagers.

The amount of discharge people have varies from one person to the next. It is usually heavier when we are teenagers and gets lighter in our 20s and 30s. If your discharge is clear to light yellow and does not smell bad or cause you to itch then it is probably your normal discharge.
There is no way to change what your body wants to do -- it would be like trying to make your hair grow slower -- that just isn't possible. Some women with heavier discharge will wear panty liners and change them during the day.
