Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you have a doubt, then take a blood test for HCG estimation. This will confirm whether you are pregnant or not. Otherwise pelvic pain with slimy discharge is usually due to pelvic inflammatory disease. Pain in the lower abdomen, pelvis, and vagina can also be due to infection, UTI, STD, uterine fibroids, urinary bladder infection or cystitis.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your gynecologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
