Have thick white discharge. Had sex and am on birth control. Am I pregnant?

I got on birth control almost a month and a half ago. I took it while I was on my period, and my boyfriend came inside for the first time on the 11th. (1week ago). I m having thick white chunks in place of my normal discharge and it doesn t have a terrible smell. My breasts have been sensitive since the 11th. My period ended around the 7th. Could I be pregnant? Or am I over thinking it?

Thank you for your query.
As you have just had your period, please do not worry.
In presence of a normal period, pregnancy is not likely.
You need to see a gynecologist anyway for your thick white vaginal discharge, as it could be a yeast infection.
As you are on the birth control for over a month, and you have taken it reliably, you need not worry, as you are mostly not pregnant.
Take care.

As you are on birth control pill and did sex on safe period, then there is no chance of pregnancy literally. Birth control pills are more than 99.5 % effective in preventing unwanted pregnancy if it is taken regularly with scheduled time.

Bad smell with thick white discharge is mostly suggestive of vaginal candidiasis or yeast infection. One vaginal swab test is needed to confirm the diagnosis.

You need to maintain genital hygiene properly. Oral anti fungal medication and vaginal suppository is required to eliminate this type of problem.

Be well & take care yourself.
