Clear Vaginal Discharge On Birth Control Pills?

Clear vaginal discharge if you are on or off birth control pills. may mean ovulation, or an estrogen effect on the cervical mucus. A physician can test your cervical mucus midcycle to see if you are showing that ovulatory effect. Although the studies all talk abut changing the mucus of the cervix such that it is a block to sperm, the recent studies looking at ovulation rates do not use this measurement as clinical evidence of ovarian suppression, but we definitely could. You could have a check up that determines if your regular clear discharge is ovulation or if your discharge is actually a vaginal infection. If you are ovulating on the birth control pill then you may need to be evaluated to see if this is the right birth control pill for you.
