clear-whitish fluid I think I'm pregnant.

User Profile
I'm almost 3 days late for my period which is weird because I've always had a normal period that started exactly when it was supposed to. I took a pregnancy test at home and it showed up negative but could I still be pregnant? I have had a clear-whitish fluid for a few days but not any blood at all. I did have unprotected sex the day after I got off my last period. Please help!

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

If you get periods on time, and had unprotected sex just a day before, then you cannot become pregnant by sex just a day before start date of your next periods. One possibility for delay in periods could be wrong date, maybe you remember the date wrong. If that is not the case, and this is the first time the periods are late, then repeat the pregnancy test and see. Preferably go for blood test. This costs almost same as a good urine test but likely to be more reliable.

Maybe you had unprotected sex during your fertile days as well or used condom that leaked. So repeat the test. Sometimes the periods delay without a visible cause. They however resume within a week. If this does not happen, please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance.
