hey i have a question about my period. im in the middle of a scare about being pregnant because we had anal sex and didn't use a condom so i know about the whole "gravity" thing. and right now im supposed to start within the next 2-4 days and im having this thick white disscharge in excess. so im wondering if this is something that happenes when your expecting your period. or is it an early sign of pregnency? please help, im getting paranoid. thanks for your response.

There really are no "early signs of pregnancy," save a positive pregnancy test--which you can take two weeks after the event in question OR on the first day of a missed period.

You don't say if it has been less than 100 hours since the unprotected sex. If so, you may still obtain Emergency Contraception.

Otherwise, at this point, you can wait for your period to show up, and book an appointment to have a full STD/STI screening (because if you've had a pregnancy risk, you've also had an STD/STI risk). And you can check these articles out, please:
