Is there a way to know for sure when you've orgasmed? Because I dunno if I have or not. It felt really good but I couldn't tell whether it was an 'orgasm'. For guys it is easy to tell, so is there some way to know for sure? Do girls always have discharge when they orgasm? When they do have discharge what does it look like? Is it white? Input is much appreciated!

Nope. Your vagina will lubricate when you're sexually aroused, but women generally don't produce any special discharge when they reach orgasm ("female ejaculation" is relatively rare).

So the best way to recognize an orgasm is how it feels, and you can read about that in:

Yes. You can test for orgasm. Just put your finger slightly into your vagina when you think you might be about to have one. Your vagina contracts and expands about 5 or 10 times over a few seconds. That's orgasm. If it felt really good you probably did orgasm. You don't have to screaming at the top of your voice to have one!

That's actually not reliable.

Menstrual cramps, ovulation, and plain old sexual arousal also create uterine or pelvic contractions.

Moreover, more subtle orgasms may not create contractions strong enough to feel with one's hands inside the vagina.

Sure fire signs I always experience whilst having an orgasm are that your legs may twitch and you have the urge to close your thighs together, your eyes may also be difficult to keep open as normal and youre heart rate becomes faster. You would know if you had one tho, it isnt easy to confuse it

But, again, leg twitches and eye-closing can occur for all sorts of reasons.

My legs may twitch when I get cramp, and my eyes may close involuntarily when I read a really boring book - that doesn't mean I'm having an orgasm .

So it really does make sense to pay attention to how you feel, instead of looking for some "sure fire" external signs.
