Can I ovulate when on birth control pill?

I've been on birth control for a couple of years now and 7 days into my cycle I notice some egg white discharge very similar to ovulation. I take my birth control everyday roughly at the same time and didnt miss one this month. WAS IT OVULATION OR THE CERVICAL MUCUS WHEN YOU'RE ON BIRTH CONTROL CAN BE DIFFERENT? CAN BIRTH CONTROL PILLS CAUSE THOSE EGG WHITE DISCHARGE? Oh and Im on sprintec. I take 21 active pills and 7 placebo

Hello,
Combined oral contraceptive pills were developed to prevent ovulation by suppressing the release of gonadotropins. Combined hormonal contraceptives, including COCPs, inhibit follicular development and prevent ovulation as a primary mechanism of action.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
