Discharge Issues

So, I'm back after a long time. I'm not new to LJ, but it's been a LONG time. I was curious about how things were going here (I lurked about when I was debating buying a Diva cup)
I did and I love it BTW. College is much easier when I don't have to buy over-priced women's products from the school store.

Here's a question though. I started birth control about a year ago (Yasmin 28) and it was going fine till I went swimming with my cup in. That night My vagina became SUPER irritated and I had GOBS of white thick fuzzy discahrge. When I saw the Gyn, he said it wasn't anything(IE: disease, pregnancy), but I switched BC to something else(Tri-cyclen). I stopped using my cup for 2 cycles and it cleared up for the most part, but now all of my discharge is thicker, white (think egg white) almost all the time.... and I have occasional gobs of cell shedding.

Is this because of the Diva (I don't think it is), maybe an STD (Not likely either), or maybe just hormone changes? Has anyone has a sudden (permanent) change in Vaginal Discharge like this.... and I mean EXTREME change... and no, I have not experienced pregnancy.

Any help would be great!

UPDATE: thank you for all the help.. Still no clue, but I guess it'll be on the table for a while. Who knows. I'll give an update if I can figure it out...
