Welcome to ehealthforum.
Did you start taking regular birth control pills, or did you take emergency contraceptive after unprotected intercourse? If you have taken emergency contraceptive after unprotected intercourse, it should help in preventing pregnancy. Regular birth control pills also work in preventing pregnancy if taken in the dose specified for emergency contraception purpose. The white discharge could be suggestive of vaginal infection, pregnancy, cervicitis, hormonal changes, etc. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the white discharge and absent periods that you describe. Get started on treatment as indicated by examination findings and investigation results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
