Hi so my last period was on May 22 and I have a 5 week cycle.
On June 8 my boyfriend was fingering me. I'm sure I can't be pregnant with that. I read the article too and I know I am not at risk. But anyway my period was late and it is now the 37th day that it has been late and I should be getting my next period soon.
On the third, 4th and 5th week that I was late I took 4 pregnancy tests and they were all negative. I took these tests too when I woke up.

It is now the 37th day and I have had light cramps. When wiping I also saw a thick light yellow discharge and when I wiped it off, a small spot of blood appeared. Like I said, I should be having my next period soon and it's normal for me to get light cramps before my period but i have never seen a thick yellow discharge.

My boyfriend and I are both virgins and we have never been with other partners. It can't be an STD can it? The most that we do is oral sex. But the last time we gave each other oral was in March. Is it normal that I should be seeing this yellow discharge?

Please help i am panicking right now

Hi Worriedgirl,

Even if you usually have a regular cycle, it's certainly possible to have a really late or even missed period once in a while. Four negative pregnancy tests are really conclusive on that front, but if you feel like your symptoms are still worrying you after reading those articles linked above, it may be a good idea to check in with your healthcare provider.
There's no way for us to know what the issue is, but a doctor would be able to examine you and find out if something's up other than your menstrual cycle being a bit irregular.

One thing to note is that even if you and your partner haven't had other sexual partners, STI testing is still important once you do become sexually active; infections that are primarily transmitted sexually aren't only transmitted that way, so a lack of prior sexual experiences isn't a guarantee that someone doesn't have any STIs. Even if that isn't the issue at the moment, I'd encourage both of you to look into testing moving forward. There's some more information about that here: Testing, Testing...

If a virgin (someone with no sexual contact ever) contracted an std, how is it possible? Can you get that my touching things with the bacteria. I'm thinking this can be chlamydia or ghonnorea, but how did I get that when he's negative for those sti and I have never been with anyone

Really, you aren't the right person to figure you do or don't have a given STI. The only person who can do that for you is a healthcare provider.

If you're having very unusual discharge, that you have never seen before, and you also have yet to start sexual healthcare and have been sexually active in some ways, then your best bet is to do that soon.

We can certainly talk about, or give you links to, how different STIs are contracted, but that doesn't seem like a sound use of anyone's time when it comes to figuring out what, if anything, is going on with your body, because that's something you need a healthcare provider, one you see in person, for.
