vaginal opening is a lot darker than normal

User Profile
The last time I had a normal period was two months ago. I don't have insurance. in that two months many things have happened. i vomit whenever i eat bananas or smell pork cooking. i have had white milky discharge with no smell. a little cramping lately and some bleeding but nothing like my normal period. it doesn't even have a period smell. the area around one of my nipples is discolored. and my vaginal opening is a lot darker than normal with some purple in it... could this be pregnancy? or something entirely different?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe (abnormal periods, vomiting, increased sensitivity to certain smells, increased vaginal discharge without foul smell, abdominal cramps, darker areolas, darker vaginal opening) could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you have got abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, 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.
