In brief: Yes it Can

Birth control pills (BCPs) alter your hormonal levels, which can affect the color, smell and amount of your vaginal discharge; all of which is normal.
BCPs can also alter the carbohydrate concentration and pH of your vagina, which can increase the risk for yeast infections in some women.
