Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

A woman generally ovulates mid-cycle and this sounds like it was the case with you. You now sound three weeks into your cycle. Vaginal fluids do not always mean periods or ovulation. Women have have vaginal fluids at any time. Of course, you may not have ovulated 8 days ago, but are now. That's generally very late in a cycle but certainly not unheard of.

If you have been having unprotected sex, you will need to wait another week until you can test for pregnancy. In the meantime, this helpful article will shine some light on things: http://www.empowher.com/reproductive-system/content/vaginal-discharge-and-cervical-mucus-frequently-asked-questions

I hope this helps!
