User avatar Hello,
Orgasm, especially in females, is not reliable or consistent. Many factors come into play, psychological as well as physical. Patience is the most important thing you need. Working on relationships and technique will probably help in time. I doubt it is due to the amount of lubrication. Usually it is the opposite problem - inadequate lubrication making it difficult to achieve pleasure. However, lubrication is a variable and during your cycle you may find you have more at times; less at other times. Emotional stress, ovulation, and sexual arousal all affect the amount of lubrication and discharge you experience.

In some cases, excessive vaginal discharge is a sign of infection or yeast overgrowth, especially if you notice color or odor changes, or if you feel pain, itching or other symptoms. Rarely it can be caused by a forgotten foreign object in the vagina, such as a tampon. This would be a time to have it checked by a health care professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Best wishes.
