I would have to agree - go get a blood test. It'll put your mind at ease and reassure you as to what's going on with your body. A number of things can influence your period causing it to be late, short, long, etc. Stress or being under/over weight are just a couple. Blood tests are going to be more accurate and if it comes out negative as well, then you'll probably feel better because more than likely you aren't pregnant. Also, when you go for the blood test, be sure to mention all your symptoms, especially include the vaginal discharge being white. They may be able to diagnose it as something else, much less stressful hopefully. Good Luck! Keep us updated!! Smile
