i have been married for almost 4 years now and have been having unprotected sex the whole time. I have extremely long cycles and have never been able to keep track of the mucus changes and such. we had sex in january and the next day i started what i thought to be my period. I only spotted VERY LIGHTLY (which is unlike me) for 3-4 days. My ob said it was either a hormonal imbalance or implantation bleeding. I took a test two weeks later and it was negative. I took another test 4 weeks after my appointment and it was neg as well. well, within the last few weeks i have noticed that i have a clear water like discharge. its all the time and it feels like i have just started my period. i am also hungry all the time, get really warm really fast, severe headaches and heartburn as well as moderate to severe back pain....could i still be pregnant?

thanks for your time!

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Well, if the periods have been delayed and two tests have been negative, chances of pregnancy are less. Since you have very long periods possibility of PCOD, hypothyroidism, anemia, hormonal imbalance should be ruled out. Treating the cause of abnormally long cycle will improve your chances of conceiving. If you want to confirm whether you are pregnant this time or not, take a blood test for HCG estimation. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
