2 questions

1) I have a lot of clear (dries white) discharge. A lot in that I have to wear a liner so it doesn't soak through. Is there anyway to lessen the discharge? I've recently gotten in a relationship and well...liners aren't sexy :(

2) Sorry if this one doesn't really belong, tell me and I'll delete it, I just don't know where else to ask. My..aerolas I guess? are really puffy lately. Even if I'm cold, they're still way puffier than usual. They stick literally an inch out from the rest of my boob. This has been going on for like two months. I was wondering if it was just a breast development thing? I'm only 18, and I had basically force started my period at 16, so I guess you could say I was a late bloomer.

1- Unless it's accompanied by discomfort, itching, or an odor, your discharge sounds pretty normal, and there probably isn't much you can do to make it stop completely. Have you considered cloth pantyliners? They may not look any sexier, but at least they feel just like underwear.

2- It's not abnormal for breasts to continue to change shape/size throughout your 20s, regardless of when you hit puberty. If you're worried about looking "unusual", you might want to check out the Everyday Bodies Project: http://community.livejournal.com/vaginapagina/9358497.html. Breasts and nipples come in many shapes, sizes, and colors, and there's nothing wrong with that!

the puffy boobs thing could be due to menstruation. My boobs start to get swollen a good 2 weeks before my cycle starts and are pretty sore until it starts. It's pretty common.

Discharge is a sign that your vag is working properly. Nothing sexier than a healthy working vag! Lots of things aren't especially 'sexy' but are a part of being a sexually mature human. Cervical mucus, periods and sweating to name but a few.

I'd second finding some cute cloth pads. You can get them to match your underwear so that they look less obvious.

1: If you're against panty liners, even cute ones as suggested, have you thought about going to the restroom to remove the liner just prior to having sex?

When I'm especially dischargey, that's what I do. I'll tell my guy that I'll be right back when things start to heat up. Usually when you go to the restroom, they won't ask what you were doing in there so it's easy to get away with.

I have a good amount of discharge too, and I just try to ignore it or change my undies if they're really soaked - I don't like wearing pantyliners unless I'm actually bleeding because they make my bits feel all moist and uncomfortable. From my experience, finding your underwear a little wet will likely not be a turn-off for your partner.

And my boobs kept changing and growing well into college, so I'd say what you're describing could definitely be to-be-expected boob changes. :)
