On the 5th of April, I had anal sex with my girlfriend. I know what the chances of pregnancy from anal sex is nil, but it leaked out so I'm worried.
Nearly 1 cycle before 5th of April, she stopped taking birth control pills. On the 15th of April, she starts a new pack of birth control and had her last pill on the 6th of May.
She had cramps for nearly 1 week, tiredness and tender breasts just started to come today.
We are expecting a withdrawal bleed on the 9th or 10th of May.
Please help, are these symptoms of a period, side effects of birth control pill, or she is pregnant? We're worried.
Today, on the 9th on May, she had excessive vaginal discharge that is described as clear and the consistency is like water.
Is this from the pill, or other signs? Pregnant? Help! Period?

So she did take EC after the risk you posted about? Provided that she took it soon after the risk, and given that the risk was small to begin with, her chances of being pregnant are pretty low.

Still, there is no way for us to make any predictions. The only way to find out for sure is to take a pregnancy test. And since it has been more than two weeks since the risk, she can take a test right now and see what's up.

No EC. We cannot get EC so easily here.

Does it sounds like she's pregnant? What about the excessive watery discharge?

Nothing you're describing sounds specifically like pregnancy. However, it's impossible for us to know. Your options are for her to take a pregnancy test now so she can see what is going on, or to wait a couple of days and see if her withdrawal bleed shows up.
