I'm an 18-year-old girl and I find that I have heavier vaginal discharge every time I'm around my friend. We do kiss, but I seem to get excited just being around her. We could just be sitting there doing nothing, and I feel like I’m excreting vaginal fluid. I'm really embarrassed because I've never been in a relationship before. Is this normal? Or do I some kind of disorder or disease?

I'm 16 and I’ve been on birth control for a long time. I recently started taking a certain brand, and all of a sudden my ability to orgasm went away...but I had been able to masturbate to orgasm before with no problems.

Will I ever get my orgasms back?
I bled excessively after having sexual intercourse for the first time...is this normal?
