Hi so I am aware that it is not possible to become pregnant from fingering no matter if he had some pre ejaculate on him or not. What I would like to know is if it is normal to have thicker white discharge two weeks after my period. I am very nervous as to what this could mean? also I am supposed to get my period in 13 days so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. If someone could help and explain what this could be that would be great

We can't tell you what's normal in your own menstrual cycle: that's something only you can determine, over time, by observing your own cycles.

However, you can find out about both vaginal discharges and discharges as related to menstrual cycles with these pieces on the site here:

okay thank you! that helped a lot I thought the on the rag article was the most helpful in my case but from reading that article I am still confused as to what phase I would be in. I'm pretty sure I would be in the secretory phase could you please help me to identify that? and also does that happen after I released the egg?

also I would just like to know if there is any visible thing that shows that the egg was released and that you are not pregnant?

No, there is not. An ovum cell is microscopically small: it's not something you can see with your eyes, and it's also not something that flows out when unfertilized. Unusued cells of the body, of all kinds, are generally simply reabsorbed into the bloodstream. Our bodies are natural recyclers. [Smile]

And when we ovulate, our basal temperatures and discharges will tend to be different, but again, there's nothing besides those things we can clearly see to know or be pretty sure an egg was released from the follicle, no matter what does or doesn't happen with it in regard to pregnancy.

Of course, a pregnancy is something we absolutely can detect and verify, with home pregnancy tests, clinic tests or exams and ultrasound technology.

I can't guess at what part of your cycle you may be in without knowing when your last period was, and how long your menstrual cycles (from day one of a period to day one of the next) typically are.

My cycles are normally 27 days long if that is any help.

So, knowing that, and knowing what you've read in the "on the rag" article, what does that tell you?

So, your cycles are normally around 27 days long, and your last period began on what date?

Okay. So, if your period last started on April 6th, then today you're at day 18 of your cycle.

If your cycles are normally around 27 days long, that means you're indeed going to be in your secretory phase.
