Infection? STD?: Vaginal moisture -- enough to cause discharge -- could result from hormonal changes with oral contraceptive. However, colored discharge (yellow, green, etc) often indicates infection, including STDs like chlamydia or gonorrhea. See your doctor soon, or your local public health STD clinic. (GGD Amsterdam provides among the best STD services worldwide.) Good luck!
