Lately i have started masturbating just with water in the bath and things like that. But i also noticed i have more of a yucky discharge through the day and also a yucky smell. Ive used body spray and perfumes to cover it up, but i was just wondering if me starting to do sexual things like this hurting my body? As in like am i messing up hormones or nething? Is this discharge and smell a cause of it? Ne info would be helpful

Masturbation is perfectly health and normal. Body sprays and perfumes to cover up a normal occuring smell is not. Those could be causing some discomfort for you.

Your vagina is a self-cleaning thing. The discharge is there to keep it healthy, and it should have a sort of odor.

Here are some articles that can best answer your questions:
Honorably Discharged
Is Masturbation Okay?

Did you have a look at the articles DarkChild linked to? The smell is supposed to be there. If it's got a fishy or really foul smell to it, then infection is a possibility, but otherwise, it's normal. Same with the discharge - it's perfectly normal, and it's necessary. Don't do anything to cover it up or try and get rid of it, you run the risk of giving yourself a nasty infection that way or irritating your delicate genital tissue.

As for the masturbation, no it will not cause your normal discharge to increase. You mentioned in another post that you're 14, so it's possible that you're just noticing the normal increase in vaginal discharge that comes with puberty. The vagina also self-lubricates when you get aroused, so you may also be noticing that extra lubrication.
