I've been taking Levora since June, and take it at the same time every day, and I've never missed it. Earlier this month my boyfriend and I had sex without a condom, which I am becoming more comfortable with now that I have been on the pill for so long. We had sex three times (first was two weeks ago, second and third this past weekend), but each time he pulled out before ejaculation.

This month I have been noticing a lot of white-ish discharge on my underwear and I'm a little concerned about it... I don't know what it means. Is this a sign of pregnancy? It's definitely not an STI or an STD. I just want to know what is going on!

One of the things the pill does is to thicken cervical mucus. So, it's typical to see thicker discharges than you're used to.

So, if you two are both up-to-date with your STI tests and all negative, that's likely what that is.
