hi again.
i told my situation elsewhere in the forum before i knew how to start a new thread, but anyways...
...so, my b/f and i had sex oct. 26. i took a first response pregnancy test on nov. 6 and it turned out negative. My last period began september 28. Three days before i took the test, (sunday-mon/tue) i had some light, bright red spotting and some tissue-y stuff coming out...
...but it stopped completely by tuesday and i haven't had anything else since.
it's been almost two weeks since we had sex, and i am VERY concerned about my period not showing.
i have been having yellowy, white, sometimes clear discharge, and itching a little. no soreness of breasts, but i have been having mood swings and bloatedness, very gassy (sorry...) and no constipation.

so...what do you think?

ARe you sure the red spotting and tissue-y stuff wasn't your period? It sounds like it could have been.

You could test again, or you could see a doctor for a blood test and also to check out why your period isn't showing up. The other symptoms you describe really could be symptoms of anything -- at this early in a pregnancy, a positive test is really going to be the only sign.

I'm pretty regular with my periods, though, and that only lasted for 2 days. Can a period do that?
Thanks! [Smile]

They can indeed. I'm pretty regular too but every once in awhile I have one that's completely outside my norm. Sounds like that might be what's going on with you. I wouldn't worry unless you have a few wonky periods in a row.

One question though, when you had sex did you use any form of protection other than pulling out -- like a condom or the pill? (By the way, withdrawal is NOT a reliable way to prevent pregnancy. If that's all you're using just say so and we'll discuss some options with you.) If you did and you have no reason to think it failed, it's safe to say you're not pregnant. If you didn't use any form of contraception, I'd take another pregnancy test just to be safe.

Okay, so I'm glad that I'm not the only one that this happens to [Smile] Thanks

That is actually the only form of b.c. that was used -- we weren't planning on having sex, so there were no condoms and I have a blood condition that prevents me from being on the pill. It was extremely stupid of us to do that . . . and I am very very regretful. He pulled out, and when he did he saw some stuff come out and onto the bed. He swears that was the only time ejaculate came out, I just hope he's right. When he went back to his apt, he told me that he "jacked off" and there was a lot of cum that came out, so maybe he didn't cum inside me. :/

I am planning on taking another test either tomorrow or Tuesday morning. It's been over two weeks since it happened, and I am way past due for my period unless what happened last week was it.

Thanks agan! [Smile]

So, I just took a first response pregnancy test and it was negative. It's been 17 days (today) since it happened, so there should def. be enough of the hormone for it to be accurate, right? I waited about 10-15 min. to make sure before throwing it away that another lined hadn't shown up.

Thank you guys soo much for everything! And hopefully "Auntie Flow" will stop by before Thanksgiving, lol... or at least Christmas!

Yep, at this point home pregnancy tests should be giving accurate results. As far as your period goes, check out this article: Honorably Discharged: A Guide to Vaginal Secretions.
