Can the Birth Control Pills Cause My Heavy Vaginal Discharge?

She suspects the birth control pills are the cause for her smelly vaginal discharges

Case #: 


I stopped taking the birth control pills few weeks ago. I suspected it caused my smelly and heavy vaginal discharge


Some vaginal discharge is normal and healthy for any woman, but if it has become heavy and dark, there may be a hormonal imbalance or infection. Hormone-based birth control works by tricking the brain into thinking there’s a pregnancy, which keeps the ovaries from producing more eggs. But the additional progesterone or estrogen in the uterus and cervix can be too much for the liver to eliminate, and may make it unable to support the synthesis of neurotransmitters (dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin).

The hormonal imbalance can cause a yeast infection, heavy vaginal discharge or spotting from the uterine lining. If spotting is slight, it will stay inside the vagina and mix with cervical mucus, and when oxidized, turn dark brown; yeast can change the color to black and produce a foul smell.

I really believe that birth control pills can be the problem. When I was younger and really wanted to take these I looked it up and it is so bad for the body. It has all sorts of negative effects to the body. Whether it is while you are taking it or when you stop taking it. Altogether it is really bad for women.
