I may be over-reacting, but I can't help it. In october I had an abortion because of unwanted pregnancy and other reasons, but from then I held off having sex. Now that I have started again with my boyfriend i have been INCREDIBLY safe. I have been using condoms every time and he pulls out, but my period is about 3 days late. I have a discharge that is very light and seems normal, but is this a sign of pregnancy? It's strange because I can't remember exactly what it felt like to be pregnant, and I'm very scared that I may be again. my boobs have been itching some, but I have been itching in my chest too because of allergies so I don't know. I haven't been incredibly tired either...but this discharge is strange and I'm really sccared, usually I'm NEVER late. it comes every 30 days exactly!!

being pregnant then having an abortion can affect your cycles for a little while, though i'd figure they'd be back to normal bynow. Unfortunately, there's not much we can tell you except to take a pregnancy test. Sounds like you're doing everything correctly. Did you get birth control pills following your abortion? If not, maybe you should consider asking for those next time you see the doctor. Calm down as best as you can and good luck.
