I'm 20, usualy my period is shortest 28days and longest 32days but its now on my 34 days that has no period yet but just a white sticky discharge I feel dizzy, sometimes headaches, lower abdominal pain back pain, iritability and emotional. I am an acidic person thats why I always feel nausea especialy when i am in tense mood i always nausea and (normaly when i feel this things when i am about to have my period) and i dont have an appetite to eat and its normal for me that no appetite especially in the morning. am i ovulating?.cause last 3weeks i have been stressful/anxiety cause for the first time my husband left for work overseas and i have to change and have to adjust my time, my works and my responsibilities cause we have a 1yr.old daughter that i have to take care that usualy my husband does and i think the day that i was supose to ovulate doesnt ovulate in that day cause of stress? so whats wrong with my period? is it my stress makes my period late? I am realy worried please help me. actually I started my period when I was 7yrs.old.

i have a nausea since i was a child because i am an acidic person and i think my headache and tiredness is because of my stress and not eating well, I only eat one meal a day but sometimes I only eat half of it cause i dont have an appetite to eat any foods. but still I will take a home pregnancy test just to be sure. thanks

Yes it might be a sign that you are about to get your period. During ovulation, a woman's discharge is usually sticky, stretchy and clear. But, any discharge with color or odor can be a symptom of an infection.

HI mmeeggiiee,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Many things can be causing a delay to your period, not all cycles will be the same. Sometimes we're so stressed out that our body decreases the amount of a hormone (GnRH), which causes us to not ovulate or menstruate. Other conditions can cause a delay or missed period, pregnancy and many other.  But, if you are having a white discharge, that too can be a symptom of an infection.  It's important to see your OBGYN and explain your symptoms. Hope this was helpful?
