Probably protected: Pink discharge is probably from yeast infection doubt if it is breakthrough bleeding. Since you are on pill you are protected even your partner was came into. Monistat does not decrease the effectiveness of the bcp.

Monistat: Monistat is an effective treatment for vaginal yeast. If you had sex while being treated then the vaginal secretions would mix with the Monsitat cream as well as fix with the yeast thus creating some abnormal discharge.
