BC + Ovulation/discharge?

I've been on birth control for about 4 years now, and I use it to regulate my periods. My doc says I should let myself have a period once every three months or so, which I try to do but sometimes lose track. I'm religious about taking my pill around the same time every day (I give myself an hour of leeway, but very rarely stray from that). I'm on Apri, and have been since I started. I notice that the longer I go between periods, the more discharge I tend to have. Is there a way to distinguish if it's ovulation vs normal discharge? My partner and I use it as our only method of protection as we're in a committed relationship and STD free. I just started a new pack and plan on not skipping my next period.

Edit: I should also mention that I had some breakthrough bleeding a few months ago (before my last period) that I'm almost 100% positive was stress enduced, but might make a difference. I just am curious as to if I should consider backup protection until my next period.
