Vaginal discharge: Sometimes vaginal discharge has a green hue to it. Typically it's not a sign of infection so long as you don't have any itching or foul smell associated with it. Regardless, however, if you're concerned you may want to see a physician and get checked out for any possible infection, including possible stds. I haven't heard of birth control causing a change in the skin color of the vagina.

Im having abnormally thick vaginal discharge with no odor. I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) in for about 4 months now. Never experienced this much discharge. Is this normal?

Yes: Progestrone only methods of birth control can change the consistency of your vaginal/cervical discharge. During the luteal (or second half) of your cycle, Progesterone cause the mucus to become thicker (preventing more sperm from entering the uterus). Thus, it is normal to have thicker discharge.
