I've taken 3 home pg test and all were negative. I do have a heavy thickish white discharge. Do u think I'm pregnant?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If your periods have been regular after stopping with the birth control use, it would suggest periodic ovulation, and if your intercourse was close to ovulation time, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms. If you develop any new symptoms, or if your periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further 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.
Take care.
