I've looked online for answers to this question, but I keep getting stupid answers like that I may be pregnant or something. Which, as far as I am concerned, would be an absolute MIRACLE because I am on the BCP and we use condoms. (Not at first, but when he gets close to orgasm, which you guys told me was okay.) Neither one of us has STIs/STDs and we are completely monogomous, so that's why I'm kinda wondering "what's up DOWN THERE?"

Ever since last Sunday, the last time my boyfriend and I had sex, (which, though this may be unnecessary to say so, but I thought this might be the cause -- was very rough sex) I've been having this sort of thick, white, creamy discharge. It then dries kind of yellow-y. It doesn't smell (except like NORMAL dishcarge) and I have no signs of infection. I think I could be ovulating, according to my BCP pack, BUT I don't ever remember this happening previously. What's up with this? This couldn't be an early sign of pregnancy right? I mean, from a previous time we had intercourse...not this past Sunday. Ugh, it's just annoying to not know why my discharge has all of a sudden changed...

Ovulatory mucus is thin and clear, not thick and white.

How long have you been on your BCPs? I ask, because part of how they work is to thicken mucus (thus, impacting sperm mobility just in case a pill user does happen to release an egg), so it'd be normal for you to see this kind of discharge really frequently.

I've been on them for about 1 year, though I did skip a couple periods taking packs back-to-back.
