I am experiencing some creamy white and very light pink discharge. I have had unprotected sex the past 2 weeks and just started up again on birth control. What could this mean?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Increased or changed vaginal discharge without associated symptoms suggestive of infection (like itching, discomfort, bad smell, burning etc) along with pink color discharge could be due to pregnancy or hormonal changes due to starting of birth control. Consider visiting your gynecologist for a thorough check to rule out infection as cause for your symptoms. Go ahead with getting a blood HCG test to confirm/rule out pregnancy. Blood HCG test can detect pregnancy accurately as early as 11 days post conception. If found to be pregnant, stop taking the birth control pills at once.
Take care.
