Best Answer

Some women will experience an increase in normal, healthy discharge (leukorrhrea) in response to the hormones in the birth control pill. A few women will experience an increased incidence of yeast infections on the Birth Control pill. In either case, changing to a pill with a different mix of hormones can be helpful. If this symptom is troublesome to you, contact your health care provider.

But if you have any pain, bleeding, odor, itching, irritation, or rash associated with the discharge, see your health care provider soon for testing for infection.
