Well i read it, and the only thing that shows that is happening to me is the kinda clear discharge.
And my diet has always been out of wack!
my dad has diebeaties, but i don't believe I have it.
And i am on birthcontrol pills.

Clear discharge isn't usually a symptom of a yeast infection. Discharge changes with yeast infections, when they happen, typically result in white, thick, clumpy discharge.

If you're up-to-date with your sexual healthcare and your doctor or nurse says you have no infections, chances are it's just normal discharge.

The vagina self-cleaning, which discharges are part of. Discharges are also part of the fertility cycle, and while the pill alters that cycle, discharges are still involved.
