white discharge / clear discharge instead of period, now 7 days late

I went off the pill in Sept. had AF Nov. 14th, then again AF on Dec. 19th my husband and I had unprotected sex in Dec. a couple days before my period started, then again Jan. 21st or 22nd (other times we used condoms)  I started to have CM or some white discharge around the time my period was supposed to start but no blood or color at all.  Then we had unprotected sex a couple of days later (my husband say's well you should be starting your period any day now, so let's not use protection) I have 2 sons  3 and 5 yrs. and we aren't trying to get pregnant, but I wouldn't mind if I was.

So, now I guess I am 7-10 days late or so and I took 2 HPT's which both were Neg. (the first on Fri. morn and the 2nd yesterday afternoon)  STILL, no AF and no blood or sign of it, sometimes a little white/clear discharge when I wipe.  Not sure what to think.  I didn't find out I was preg. with my 2 sons until I was 5-7 weeks preg. and I was younger and uninformed about how my body worked.  Any thoughts? Oh, also before BC pills, I was irregular, but I know we have had unprotected sex 2 times, so that is why I wonder what is going on.

You might call your OB/GYN to see what he/she thinks.  I am
12 days late and my doctor's nurse said to wait another
week.  I will either get a blood test done or will be told
to wait it out longer.

Thanks for your input. It is so confusing..yesterday, (& more today) I have had some dizziness when I was in a room that was warmer and when I was mopping the floor.  I really do wonder if I am preg.  My husband says "oh, just wait until this Friday and if no AF, then take another HPT Fri. morning."  I guess I will do that.  Let me know your results.  I hope it's what you are hoping for.
If anyone else reads this and has input, especially about the white/clear discharge instead of a period...please let me know.

What you have just said my husband and I used the same method of protection and I had those same symptoms like my period was going to start for weeks I was just waiting and cramping I thought any moment it's going to start.  Congratulations it's possible you may be pregnant.  I found out that was what happened with me.  You should get a pregnancy test from the drug store, or your local family planning office, and confirm with your doctor.  Best wishes...

I have just come on after being 8 days late (obviously gutted !!) I was so sure i was pregnant with my 2nd (have a 22 month old little boy).  All i want to say is don't stress about it, i am sure that is what delayed my period.  I had several negative tests, i even had 2 faint positives !! I felt nauseous, sore breasts, cramps.  I also had clear/white discharge.  I think it is possible that if you are so wanting to have a baby that you almost convince your body you are pregnant and it can mimic the symptoms.  Don't get worked up over it all, just relax and if you are pregnant time will tell and if you are not then your period will come and you can try again next month.  I spent hours scouring sites like these looking for a glimmer of hope reading everyone elses posts about having negative tests and stilll thinking they are pregnant.  I got myself so worked up nothing else mattered !! I feel rather foolish now.

Good luck everyone !!

10 days late is torture after 2 years of IUI and IVF, but the hpt is negetive and the white discharge is uninteresting - just wet. I gained 10 pounds after vacationing in claifornia and eating yum mexican for a month, and I also quit smoking, so I'm fatter, ok, but where is my period??? I'm due for ICSI in a month but cannot start without my period, I kinds miss it...

Hi i have been having white discharge without my period and it is very late. before i had my period last month i was late for 3 months and going, i went to the doctor, took a couple pregnancy tests they all came back negative i did a FSH as authorized by my OBGYN and it was fine. I dont get it the white fluid feels like my period but when i check its not it and i get so disappointed too.

a week late period, usually i have a 25 day cycle. Instead of having my period I have a white/clear discharge (alot of it). Is that a sign? I havent been stressing at all to miss a period. Well shouldnt a blood test tell in a few days? I have heat flashes at night, high/fast heart beats, high temp., cramps, morning sickness, headaches, back aches, and sometimes when i eat a bite of something....I can't eat no more b/c i will throw it back up. WELL I HOPE U CAN HELP ME. I had unpretected sex 3 times and 1 out of 3 my bf squirted in me (sry tmi). R these signs and also I has a gardicil shot this month....what do u think?

i have always had a regular period but now i find myself over 10 days late without any pre-menstrual symptoms. i have a thick white discharge, not like ovulation. i have a sore throat and a fever and i am nervous about what this could mean. i am a virgin and i have engaged in oral sex with only two people. i could be overreacting but i know my body and somethings not quite right.. help??

my period is 8 days late and i think i might be pregnant with baby #1. My periods are irregular but i have NEVER been more then 4 days late. Im going to take a pregnancy test tomorrow and hopefully then I will know for sure. I havent really been getting pregnancy symptoms thought. Mostly all ive been having is mood swings, tired most days, I have to pee more, some nausea and headaches but I think that could be period symptoms too. Im not sure but i just cant wait to find out tomorrow! Also I was wondering, is it normal to be wet down there before your period is supposed to arrive? Thanks everyone and baby dust to all !!!

Ok, new at this.... Today is the 14th. I was supposed to have started on the 8th, so 6-7 days late, however you want to count it. No symptoms of starting or of being prego. Husband and I have been trying since September. I know that's not very long. Have taken couple tests, both negative but both had to wait very long to get any result at all. Would love to be positive. Don't want to get my hopes up to high but at this point really can't help it. Any ideas. Also don't really sleep much, have a pretty constant dull headache, weird taste in my mouth when I wake up and major heartburn. Would love any input at this point. Thanks and best wishes to all.

Ok so ive read alot of posts on here and in other websites and well i think the only way to know if you are preggo is to take a hpt i mean i know its easier to say it then to do it  i know because im also late on my period and well i have many of the symptoms that u ladies have like the sore breast even though mine arent that sore but if i cross my arms they hurt a little and well i havent done a hpt because well its hard you know to be wanting a baby and being scared that its a negative so ill wait and see if i am preggo tomorrow which i dought i am because i have pcos and for me its  very difficult to get pregnant so wish me luck and well to 1128 some women dont experience pregnancy symptoms at all so if ur late and you have already taken 2 pregnancy test i would just wait a few more days or just go to the doctor and have a blood test done but now my question is to all you ladies do you guys ever get night sweats ? ive been having quite a few and its not hot right now so its weird to me anyways good luck to those ttc ill let you know what happens tomrrow with my pregnancy test .

Avatar universal
I am confused...

I am approximately 7 days late for my period and I have been experiencing menstral cramps, but no period.

At present, I have a clear discharge (it almost feels like water running). 2 negative HPT's and have been extremely fatigued. I wake up and a mere 2 hours later, I am exhausted! I became fatigued just filling out Christmas cards.

What does this mean? Any other women endure this before, what was the outcome? Thanks in advance for your input.

I am really worried because I have skipped my period, and instead I have been getting a lot of clear discharge. I have been feeling kinda off my food and under weather and I have not had sex at all in my life. What is this??? Please help! if any of you have the same thing!

Hi everyone,
Like many of you ladies that have posted here. I am 18 days late. I was nauseated for a week and a half since I missed my period. I have mild cramps, headaches, hot flashes at night, I have been exhausted for weeks now, just this morning my nipples started getting a little sore, my stomachseems to stay tensed all  the time and that isn't normal for me. I have taken several HPTs and they all came out negative. My husband and I have been trying for 2 years to get pregnant. I have had watery clear discharge for two weeks now. At the beginning of that two weeks I spotted once when I wiped. Nothing since. I have  a great desire to have children. What makes this even harder is that all my friends have children already and two of them are pregnant with their first. I found out a month ago my husband is being deployed in june 2009 for a year. I don't know if anxiety about him leaving has caused these symptoms including the missed period or if I may be pregnant and my hormone levels are just low now.
