Pregnancy/Yeast Infection?

There is a possibility I am 6 weeks pregnant, but all my home pregnancy tests have been negative. I had taken ECP and my "period" came a week early, it was very thin, bright red blood, and it wasn't like my normal heavy period. Could it have been implantation bleeding, or was it just altered because of the ECP?
I recently was diagnosed with a bladder infection. And I think I'm starting to get a yeast infection as well, because the outside area of my vagina itches and I have a lot of white, lotion-like discharge. Are those symptoms of a yeast infection?

Any emergency contraceptive pill cause unexpected bleeding in some women. This is not dangerous and should clear up by the time you have your next period. The pills might also cause your next period to come early or late.

If you were 6 weeks pregnant. you would have gotten a positive result on a pregnancy test.

The most common symptom of a yeast infection is extreme itchiness in and around the vagina.
Other symptoms include:
* Burning, redness, and swelling of the vagina and the vulva
* Pain when passing urine
* Pain during sex
* Soreness
* A thick, white vaginal discharge that looks like cottage cheese and does not have a bad smell
* A rash on the vagina
You may only have a few of these symptoms. They may be mild or severe.

Hope this answers your questions,
