Abdominal pain and white discharge

User Profile
I have severe pain which starts out like indigestion, but then progresses to my sides and back, and basically incapacitates me for a period of time, then goes away, then a few days later repeats. I've also been feeling sick, but not throwing up. And i have this white discharge that since last night has been mostly continuous. I am not late on my period, but could these be signs of pregnancy. Or perhaps tubal pregnancy? by at least December 15th i should know if i'm late. But i'm kind of scared.. what could it be?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum

If at all you have conceived, the signs and symptoms of pregnancy begin usually after the missed period and not so early in the cycle. Hence chances of pregnancy are less or at least the symptoms cannot be attributed to pregnancy at this stage.

Almost everyone experiences an increase in white discharge around ovulation. This is what you probably have now if you expect to have your periods around the 15th of this month.

You could be having a severe bout of acidity that comes and goes. GERD or acid reflux and hiatal hernia are also the possibilities. It could also be intolerance to certain types of food like gluten, lactose, citrus fruits, egg, sea food etc.

Please consult your doctor and get yourself examined as a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net. Hope this helps. Take care!
