Oral contraceptive pills
Are you taking birth control pills? If you are, please note that oral contraceptive pills affect a woman’s hormonal levels, so it can also lead to white discharge.
Furthermore, women who are “on the pill” tend to observe an increase in their white discharge.
A condition that results from an imbalance in the number of bacteria in the vagina, bacterial vaginosis or BV can also cause white discharge.
However, please note that the BV discharge color varies: some women notice whitish-grey mucus, while others observe yellowish or greenish vaginal discharge. This vaginal discharge may cause other types of STDs, like chlamydia, and bacterial infections especially if a person is sexually active.
Finally, if it’s bacterial vaginosis, you might notice that a strong, fishy odor accompanies your abnormal discharge.
