Discharge: The birth control pill can cause increase in thick vaginal mucus to prevent sperm penetration. If there is no infection, may need to use a nonhormonal method of contraception if it persists and is bothersome.

Resistant candidiasi: First u need to make sure that not only a wet mount/KOH prep was done but also a specific yeast culture.This is a resistant yeast infection that will require long term therapy.U had some benefit from boric acid & white color points to yeast infection. Physiologic leukorrhea.can b due to estrogen w/o any other symptoms. Scented panty liners, spermicides, soaps, perfumes, latex condoms can all cause
