Hi there,
I know that you guys can't answer that question for me, but here are some of the circumstances surrounding my question. My last period was on the 4th of March 2011. It was, however somewhat unusual for whats the norm for me. I generally have quite painful heavy periods and this one was light brown and shorter than is the custom. I am not on any form of birth control for almost a year now- I was previously on the pill.

According to various ovulation sites on line I was supposed to ovulate on March the 19th- my husband and my 1st anniversary. We had unprotected sex daily throughout our fertile cycle and leading up to it. I had the usual cramps to signal this ovualtion. I had the eggwhite fertile cervical mucus on the 22nd March 2011. I am presently days past ovulation now and am having cramps in my lower abdomen similar to AF.

I have also been having tons of creamy mucus. Is this a sign? I am not sure what is I M/C a few months earlier and have similar fears I dont have much signs except constant fatigue lots of creamy cm and cramps help

Hi Unsure,
Thanks for the additionl information. Since your last period was March 4th, I would wait to see if you miss your April period and try another pregnancy test. Unfortunately, without waiting there is no clear indicator to the pregnancy question.

I would wait another 2 weeks and try another pregnancy test. If you have any other concerns before your regularly scheduled period, contact your physician. I hope this helps and keep us updated on the results.

Good luck,

Thx for replying Miscortes - no itching or foul smell it isnt an infection. I am pretty confident about that.

Its the mucus that I get right before ovulation that creamy type, its normal for me. Just this time its happening and is continued to happen way past ovulation date and i have heard some women say that they generally get this increase in cervical mucus as an early sign of pregnancy so I am very interested

Hi Unsure,
The real answer to "are you pregnant" would be there certainly is a chance since you had unprotected sex. You will always risk possible pregnancy. As for the creamy mucus that has continued...I would make an appointment with your doctor. The mucus can mean several different things and getting that checked is important. Are you experiencing any other symptoms such as foul odor or itching?

Thank you for additional information.
