no period and still having slight vaginal discharge

User Profile
My LMP was Dec. 19, 2012 (I have a regular 30-day cycle). I am expecting my period by Jan. 18, 2013. Dec. 24, 2012, I started using bcp. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to continue with the bcp starting Jan. 8, 2013 since my pouch was lost in a public cr. Hence, I was only able to take bcp from Dec. 24-Jan. 7. Since no bcp, withdrawal was used.

By Jan. 10-11 I have had 2 days medium light bleeding and as per inquiry, was withdrawal bleeding due to bcp.

After the withdrawal bleeding I have had symptoms such as nausea, sleepiness, leg cramps, pelvic cramps, lower back pain, hip pain, sore breast and vaginal discharge (from elastic ones to milk white discharge).

My period didn't came at Jan. 18. I took pt on Jan. 22, but, it was negative. Up to the present time, i have no period and still having slight vaginal discharge and a sore breast.

Any replies would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment whether the symptoms that you describe suggest pregnancy possibility or hormonal changes and your body getting readjusted back to normal after stopping of the BCP use. If your ovulation has been intact and if you had been sexually active during ovulation time, then the recent symptoms that you describe (nausea, increased sleepiness, leg cramps, pelvic cramps, low back pain, hip pain, breast soreness, alteration in vaginal discharge) could be indicative of pregnancy possibility. If symptoms remain persistent, or if you do not get your periods, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance. To arrive at the next expected period date, count the usual menstrual cycle length starting with first day of the withdrawal bleeding.
Take care.
