My girlfriend is a week late for her period. I know there's a very slim chance for her to be pregnant, but her discharge is kind of chunky and thick, and we know that's not normal. What's going on? Are they connected?

Well, there are times in the fertility cycle when it's normal for discharge to be thick, so it can be normal.

But if it looks cottage-cheesy-thick, if she's got any itching or discomfort, she could be dealing with an infection, and should see her general doctor, sexual health clinician or gynecologist.

You just SAID it was thick in the first post.

In any event, a foul taste or odor, like profound and unusual thickness, could be a sign of infection. There's no telling what KIND of infection online: generally, that's something that, as I said above, she'll need to have her healthcare professional look into.

What if we had sex and the condom didn`t break AND I filled it up with water afterward to check for a leak. No water squirted out so I think were safe. AM I right or wrong???

Using condoms reduces the risk of infections. It doesn't prevent them, and vaginal imbalances like yeast or bacetrial infections are things that can happen even if a woman isn't having sex at all.

Per pregnancy, yes, it does not sound like you have had a risk, as we told you before, but if your partner is a week late, she could take a pregnancy test if she wanted to be sure. However, your partner still has this issue of a potential infection to manage.
