Have you had a pregnancy risk since your last period?

Periods can vary from month to month, and that also includes which PMS symptoms we experience and when we experience them. Not having one symptom that you usually have does not have to mean anything, so at this point I'd just wait another few days to see what happens.

Well, if you have not had a risk, then you cannot be pregnant.

Even if your breasts always get sore, that fact alone does not mean anything, except that your body is a body and not a machine, and sometimes does things a little bit differently than you are used to.

This article covers common reasons for late periods: M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?

However, your period is not late, so let's not get ahead of yourself, okay? Worrying about things that haven't happened yet is generally not a super productive use of our time.

If you had a period after that pregnancy risk, then is not possible to be pregnant now. Like Joey already said, our bodies are not machines and sometimes they react in different ways. [Smile]

"Pregnancy symptoms" are really not a sound way to consider whether you or anyone else might be pregnant, because pretty much all the things that usually get called "pregnancy symptoms" have many other possible causes, most of which are very ordinary. You can find out more about that here: Chicken Soup for the Pregnancy Symptom Freakout's Soul

The first indication that most people have that they may be pregnant is a missed period. The only reliable way to tell if someone is pregnant or not is to take a pregnancy test. If you're still feeling concerned you may be pregnant even after you've had a period, do you think seeing a test result would help clear that up for you?

now that i think about it, i did ovulate about a week late this month.
does that also mean my period will be late as well?

Do you chart daily to know when you ovulate? That's the only way for someone to reliably know when they ovulated.

If you ovulated about a week later than you usually do, then yes, your period would probably be around a week later than it usually is too.

That kind of discharge is associated with ovulation but, again, the only way to reliably know when you're ovulating is to chart your cycle.

Like I said, the discharge you're describing usually occurs around the time of ovulation, but there's no way for me to know for certain if that's what was going on.
If you'd like, you can read up on charting your cycles (which will help give you a better sense of when you're ovulating) here:

Do you chart your cycle? That is the only to know when you ovulated. We certainly cannot know, since we are not psychic.

Unless the app is having you track your temperature and your cervial fluid, it can't reliably provide you with an accurate assessment of when you are ovulating and not ovulating.
