So, I VERY recently went off the Pill (this is my first month off of it) because I'm not sexually active and probably won't be for a while.

Anyway, this morning (and all day) I've been getting GLOBS of clear, slippery, sticky discharge. There is no odor or irritation. I've been screened for STIs since my last partner. It's literally globs of it ... kind of alarming. Also, my nipples are kind of tender right now, too. Are these symptoms of ovulation? Or just some side effects from going off the Pill? I've been on the Pill for so long I forget what ovulation is like.

I am not pregnant as I took at test 28 days after the last time I had intercourse and had a period (although light, still heavy enough). Thanks for your input!

Going off the pill is a big hormonal change for the body, and it can take a while until the body adjusts.

If the discharge doesn't smell funny and isn't accompanied by any sort of itching or redness, I'd not worry about it at this point.

Okay. Just double checking, there is no way I could possibly be pregnant, right? Given I took at test at 28 days?

Thanks!

There's really no reason to worry about pregnancy here, no.
