I am trying to conceive, I was ovulating between the 15-18 in which we had sex the 15th & 16th, on the 18th I had stringy discharge which I had never had before, I was concerned so I had the doctor test me for infection and I was fine I have not had this weird discharge since, it is now the 25th. My breast are also extremely perky and sore at-least 5 days before my period is due. but this time they are not all which has never happened before, do you know any idea of what might be occuring. oh my last period started on the 1st it was about 4days long. (I am not on birth control and haven't been for two years, I did have a cyst on my ovaries but it went away)

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been sexually active around ovulation time, then the symptoms that you describe (stringy and increased vaginal discharge, sensitive breasts, breast soreness) could indicate pregnancy possibility. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. Wait and watch for your periods. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, or if periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough 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 adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
