i have started going throught puberty and my question is are there ment to be hairs on your vagina? and how do you control discharge?

Yes. During puberty coarse hair (pubic hair) starts to grow under your arms and around and above your vulva, and finer hair begins to show on your legs and arms.

Leukorrhea is the medical name for the white, yellow, or greenish sticky discharge that leaks out of the vagina once in a while. It can leave a stain on underwear. Leukorrhea is perfectly normal. Girls shouldn’t worry about it unless the vulva becomes itchy or irritated. If that happens, girls should see a health care provider.
