White milky discharge

Hi. About a month ago, my boyfriend and I were intimate. Right before we were intimate with each other, I just finished my period, which was very light, and was the second time it occurred that month. For the next few days after I was intimate, I became slightly bloated. Fast forward about three weeks, I still haven't gotten my period for this month, and it's worrying me a lot. When we were intimate, we used protection, and there were no tears in the condom. This month, I haven't gotten my period yet, but during the past couple of days, there has been a lot of white, non-odorous milky discharge. I have also been feeling some cramps on my lower left abdomen, as well as emotional moodiness. Is the discharge normal, or a sign of something else?

Actually, you can have your period and be pregnant. Although it isn't common, it isn't impossible either. I happen to personally know a woman who had hers all through her pregnancy and she didn't gain a pound either. We didn't even believe her when she came to our house with a baby and said it was hers. Lol. I'm having the same issue as the op. I can't remember exactly when I had my period last month, but I haven't had it yet this month. I know there's still over a week left in the month so I shouldn't assume anything as of right now, but it is unusual considering I have been cramping here and there for like a week and still nothing. I normally cramp a day or two beforehand, but never a week or more. Very strange.

Hey so my last period was February 19 and I always get my period towards the end of the month either it's here by the 17th- the 20th I can usually always count on it to arrive by the 20th and end by the 24-25 depends how active I am. but I've been missing it for two weeks now I took a pregnancy test 4 days after my missed period it's now the 1st (2 weeks) I've been really moody and emotional and kinda tired but I also have a really weird sleep schedule but sleep has never affected my cycle I also just turned 20
And I always feel cramps a day before my period and I've felt nothing I've also felt a twinge nauseous and I'm always hot or vary warm and I've been vary hungry feeling an fatigued I guess any advice sorry I know it's a lot

All of your symptoms can either indicate an upcoming period, or a pregnancy. The symptoms (unfortunately) are almost identical, since hormones are the culprit in both. Women have discharge throughout their cycles, and an increase in discharge can indicate a period (or pregnancy); same with moodiness. Cramping is most likely period-related.

If you had protected sex, your risk of pregnancy is almost non-existent. (Nothing is 100% effective except abstinence, of course!).

What was the date of your last menstrual period (LMP)---the day you started bleeding?
When are you expecting your next period?

You can always take a home pregnancy test, once you have missed your expected period and it has been at least 2 weeks since intercourse, to rule out pregnancy.

Hi Alison,

Thanks for getting back to me :) The last time I started my menstrual period was July 24, and lasted 4 days (light flow for the duration of the cycle). Prior to that cycle, I had another menstrual period from July 9/10 to July 14/15 (light-moderate flow for the duration of the cycle). That alone isn't normal, would you be able to give some advice on that?

I'm expecting my period to be sometime during this week, if what I have been reading on the internet has been right, and with the notes I have been making regarding my menstrual periods, it should be occurring every three-four weeks.

Thanks :)
