About discharges...: There is usually a simple reason for a discharge, maybe an over-the-counter treatment option to treat a discharge, as well as a prescription-only option. Of course, it depends on where the discharge is coming from, and what is causing it. One's primary care doctor can help determine that. A discharge can come from places such as the eye, nose, ear, urethra, vagina, anus, skin wounds, etc...

No: Vaginal discharge in pregnancy is common from all the hormonal changes. This does not necessarily mean that you have an infection. On the other hand, vaginal discharge could be caused by an infection and you should be test. The most common infections are bacterial vaginosis and yeast which are not sexually transmitted. Stis like gonorrhea, chlamydia and trichomoniasis should be ruled out.

Clindamycin: There can be a 'normal' extra discharge that can be treated the same way as a BV (bacterial vaginosis) with a relatively safe vaginal antibiotic cream called Clindamycin or a derivative. They are available by rx so need to report this to your doctor for evaluation.

Freezer burn: Yes. Freezer burn affects the quality of the meat frozen and usually ruins the taste and destroys some nutrients. It may still be safe to eat, but it will taste bad.

Consult physician: Don't worry about the "quantity" of the sperm, unless there is none. A single drop is enough for conception purposes. You don't say if the penis gets flaccid before getting the orgasm or your total intercourse time is 5-10 minutes. You need to see a physician to evaluate this and other issues to find out the cause and prescribe a treatment if necessary.
