Hello, Thank you for the question.
Birth control pills are one of the contraceptives that contain synthetic hormones that function to avoid pregnancy. Birth control pills consist of 1 month birth control pills and 3 month birth control pills. These two types of birth control pills differ in terms of the hormone content in them. Consumption of pills that contain these hormones can cause fluctuations in reproductive hormones in the body and cause complaints that you submit that vaginal discharge and pain in the breast because both parts of the woman's body are sensitive to hormonal changes in the body. If you only experience pain in the breast, then you don't need to worry about this symptom. Breast cancer will cause the following symptoms:
breast lumps that are enlarged and palpable solid
bumps on the armpits
changes in the shape of the skin in the breast

The nipple secretes
Likewise with vaginal discharge complaints. Leucorrhoea is a normal response to clean the vagina and prevent the vagina from infection.

You can do a warm compress on the affected area of the breast or take paracetamol or other pain relievers to treat pain in the breast. You can immediately see a doctor if in this way the breast pain is out of control or if you find a lump in the breast or other characteristics of breast cancer.
