Hi! So for the past few weeks I've been getting this discharge that literally looks like clumpy boogers, and it doesn't look anything like ovulation discharge. I'm not sexually active so I know that it can't be an STD but I even tried using yeast infection medicine and it still looks the same. What could the reason for this discharge be and is it a cause for concern? I haven't ovulated yet this month although my period is due in 5 days and I'm wondering of it means that something is wrong....please help!

Sounds like you have some kind of infection. The best thing to do is to see a doctor and have them take a look.

We usually recommend not trying to self-medicate if you are not sure a yeast infection is what you have. If you do not have a yeast infection, using those kinds of cremes may wind up making things worse, not better.

Okay thanks. Do you think that this is what is also postponing my period? Can certain infections do that?

Hi Kathryn,

Any changes in the bod--such as a change in sleeping patterns, minor illness, and so on--can disrupt the menstrual cycle.

Do you have a healthcare provider you can see about that discharge?

I'm reading, in your post at the top, you saying your period is due in five days, so I'm confused about you asking about it being postponed?

Do you need help finding a healthcare provider? If so, we can help you do that.

It's being postponed because I keep track of my discharges and basal body temperature and I haven't ovulated yet. And that would be great if you could please help me find a health care provider:)

I don't know how you chart your ovulation, but if you don't do it with daily cervical mucus and basal temps, you probably can't have a good idea about that, ever.

Per healthcare, can you fill us in on where you're at (country, then state, province or general area) and what kind of, if any, healthcare system you're part of, like having private insurance, or being in the system per national or public health?

(But also, I hear you saying your period is NOT late, because you are not even expecting it yet, so.)
