PMS or Pregnancy Symptoms?

This is related to my last question -https://www.empowher.com/community/ask/should-i-worry-about-pregnancy-or-not
so, my boyfriend and i played around (it was 20 days past since the first day of my last menstrual period) we just played with each other's "things" and had dry rubbing at the first 20 mins then stopped and washed our hands after 40 minutes again we had "sex" (slight intercourse and rubbing only) and it was protected , we even checked the condom after and there were no leaks or damage and the only time my vagina and his penis "went close" is when after i gave him a blowjob, and it was not that close, like only in the middle part of his penis and not even close to the tip (because he pulled me on top of him) and it only lasted for about 5 seconds and after that we washed our hands and played again and he didn't ejaculate the whole time.

So now, (9 days since that day) I've been experiencing mild nausea, mild abdominal cramps, mild backaches and occasional breast pain (like a bug bit my nipple) and occasional headaches and dizziness and my "anxiousness" of getting pregnant got worse and yesterday i had this egg white/ mucous-y vaginal discharge and today, when i wiped my vagina, i had this creamy white vaginal discharge and my period is due on the 7th August (based on my last period), are these PMS symptoms or pregnancy symptoms?

Hi there!

I don't think you have anything to worry about! I agree with Susan that birth control is something every responsible adult should consider. If you are mature enough to be having sex (and the possibility of an unwanted pregnancy) you are mature enough to visit your doctor or Planned Parenthood to consider which form of birth control is best for you. Condoms are also the number one way to avoid contacting any sexually transmitted diseases outside of abstinence, so while I am glad you are using condoms, you should talk with your doctor about how pregnancy actually occurs (Your body needs ovulate 'release of an egg' and join with his sperm when he ejaculates). If you are not ovulating, your risk of getting pregnancy is decreased.


Here is a link to birth control facts https://www.empowher.com/providers/article/birth-control-facts

Please let me know if you schedule a doctor's appointment to discuss birth control. Be safe!!

Thank you ma'am Kristin! So these "symptoms" aren't related to pregnancy?
