Most likely that discharge is just the start of her period OR is just how her period happens to look this cycle.

She already saw her doctor about this, who clearly didn't have any concerns, and pregnancy is obviously not an issue. So, it's really nothing for her to worry about.

Hi Heather

thanks for the speedy reply

The doctor didnt do any tests they just spoke

So is it just going to be like this till her next cycle... could it be pregnancy after 4 months or is it just us freaking out..

At four months of pregnancy, a pregnant person knows they are pregnant. Pregnancy does a whole bunch of things to the body a pregnant person feels: at that stage of the game, you know you are pregnant if you are.

Doctors are also very quick, usually, to give pregnancy tests if there is even the teeniest chance someone might be pregnant. If her doctor didn't see a need from one, you can be sure that's because there was not a need for one.

There is no way on earth we can know about this. Sounds to me like it is just her period starting, as they will often start like this for people, but there is no way to know for sure without seeing a healthcare provider.

There seems to be no need for that, though, so really, all the is for either of you to do is to chill out and just leave things be, working to let go of this not hold on.

Hi Heather

Again thank you for the speedy reply

Just worried about this situation

i might have not mentioned early

but she has been on some heavy pain killers and some really heavy stress..

This it her first time she has missed her period and today is 13 days

will it be strange this month if it is starting now??

also if we slept together in July will it be possible for her to have symptoms now??

No one five months pregnant is not going to know so something is SERIOUSLY up by now. You need to accept she isn't pregnant... Or not, but really, at this point, we can't convince you, it's up to you to take care of yourself in this way.

If she has health or pregnancy concerns, then she needs to follow up with her doctor.
