Female orgasm: It is normal; some women secrete more fluids during orgasm.
Dr. Heidi Fowler

Squirting: “Squirting” is controversial. Some indicate that it is a form of female ejaculation in which the fluid is propelled from para-urethral ducts during or prior to orgasm. Others hold that it is lubricating secretions or incontinence of urine.

Some patients will have kidney involvement & blood or protein in the urine & pain or swelling can be worrisome. Most cases will self heal over a few weeks & require only observation & pain management. Followup aimed monitoring kidney status is routine.

Glands: It is the expulsion of fluid by the paraurethral ducts through and around the human female urethra during or before an orgasm (believed to be skenes glands). It is also known in slang as squirting, although these are considered to be different phenomena in some research publications. The exact source and nature of the fluid continue to be a topic of debate among medical professionals.
