Okay, I sound like an idiot, but I'd feel better if I knew that this was normal. But, for the question; it seems like I'm constantly getting some kind of discharge. I can't even go for a morning or afternoon without a pantyliner. And it's not just around that time of the month... it's every day! Is this normal or not? Thanks

If the discharge is clear or slightly whitish, and doesn't have a strong offensive odor, then chances are pretty good that it's simply your normal discharge. Vaginas are nifty self-cleaning body parts, so there's almost always some fluid being generated in that region.

However, if it's yellow or greenish, or has lumps like cottage cheese, or smells really bad, then you should get to a doctor right away to have it checked out.
