I have a few concerns. This month has bene really weird considering my menstrual cycle. Sorry for the gross detail but here goes: I usually notice frequent vaginal discharge during one cyle. This time around, I've been very dry since my period. I had my period on the 1st/2nd of May (depending on when you consider day one. spotting on the 1st, heavy period on the 2nd). And technically I'm close to ovulation right now. No vaginal discharge until today after a work out - I got what appeared to be really thick, sticky stuff that clung to my panty liner. It also had some strings of blood and seemed kind of brownish pink in colour. Is this normal? Blood during ovulation? I can't recall this happening before but lately i've become much more aware of my body and so I htink i'm noticing things that I just never noticed before.
I'm experincing: Bloating. A subtle pain in my lower abdomen, right around my hip bones. Weird breasts. My nipples get hard whenever something does so much as craze them. Which i think are a product of ovulation, but i dont know. I just feel weird and with this weird discharge, i'm paranoid that theres something wrong with me.
Does anyone have any insight on this?

It's not uncommon for a cycle to be different every once in a while, or, for some people, there's a lot of variation with each cycle. While the hormones basically do the same things each cycle, their levels can vary, leading to different bodily symptoms, types of discharge, etc. How long have you had this abdominal pain?
