I have been experiencing a clear watery discharge for over a week now and have had very tender nipples starting today. I have very irregular cycles and sometimes have tender breasts before my period but it has not been in conjunction with this discharge before. Also have experienced mood swings and fatigue this past week. Is this something worthwhile calling my doctor for? Possibly pregnancy signs? I would normally think just pms except for the discharge.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Although irregular periods are generally associated with anovulatory cycles (menstrual cycles without periodic egg release from ovary), there is possibility of having occasional ovulation, and if you had been sexually active around ovulation time, and if semen or pre-cum has come in contact with vagina, chances of pregnancy are possible. The symptoms that you describe (clear watery discharge, tender nipples, tender breasts, mood swings, fatigue) could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you have got abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
