Up until the last 5 or 6 years my period was never regular, i would assume do to being on the shot for almost 3 years prior. Now in the last 5 to 6 years i have gotten my period on the 7th or 8th of every month. This month i did not get it. It is now the 13th and no period. I took a test two days ago and it was negative. I have not been pregnant for almost 12 year, since i gave birth to my son. I have been having a milky white discharge with no itching or burning for about a week now. Could i be pregnant and i just took the test too soon or is there something else wrong with me? My boyfriend and i have only been having unprotected sex for about 3 weeks. TMI i know but i also have been gassy for about a week and ii amnormally only gassy the couple days before my period. I also have lost about 6 lbs in the last 2 weeks. I lost weight when i first was pregnant with my son so i am super confused and dont know what to think right now, any help would be great or just anything really. Thank you for your time it is very much appreciated.

Continue to take pregnancy tests every few days until you start your period or get a positive result on a test.

You could always go see your doctor and get a blood test. That would be most accurate.

Good luck.

I agree with Mabel. Milky white discharge is a sign of a mucous plug in the making for pregnancy.

Take a pregnancy test that is 5 days sooner for a missed period because it is usually more sensitive. Try to take 2 every week. It should come up positive because the discharge that you have now is not the kind you get when you are ovulating. Congrats!

I am 2days late on my period. And i also have been having the creamy white discharge. But i had a pinching and poking feeling yesterday all day and mild cramps. I am still having the mild cramps. My breasts are a little tender under my armpits. And i am not sure what to think. I usually only cramp one day and this is now going on two days. I took a pregnancy test this morning and got a neg. So not sure whats going on.
