Vaginal Discharge

I've never been intimate with a anybody nor have I "handle" myself but I've been getting vaginal discharge for the last 4-5 years. I wondered if you could help me. It's an every day thing and it's starting to become a hindrance. I've become very self conscious and think that, since I can smell the scent, everyone around me can as well..

Yes, it's normal. It begins in the teen years as your mature sexually.
