Should I take a pregnancy test?

I havent had my period since the last week of january. I am concerned because a few days after i finished my period, so the first week of February, I had sex with my bf and when I went to get off, there was some spillage from the condom. I didnt really feel like anything got on me so I didnt worry about it. But now I havent had a period since and I havent had any symptoms either other than being really tired. But Ive been attributing that to stress and sleep deprivation because of grad school and all the things I need to finish up in order to graduate in may. Now Im wondering if I should I take a pregnancy test? thank you in advance

Also, for about two weeks or so I have had frequent discharge and almost every time when I go to the bathroom. It doesnt seem abnormal though. Its clear and doesnt have an odor. Ive just had much more of it lately. Maybe this information also helps..

You could be pregnant or you may have just not ovulated. Take a test and if it's negative, wait and see if you get your period for March. If you don't and the tests are still negative, see your doctor.

Is there a reason for not ovulating? im not on any birth control and I very rarely miss a period.

No reason, it just happens. It's common and usually nothing to worry about.

Hi, I thought I finally got my period because tuesday night I had spotting. It continued through Wednesday but it was very light. I havent had anything today at all and I took a pregnancy test but it came out negative. Any thoughts as to what might be going on? Would I still be spotting if I didnt ovulate like you said?

Yes, you could still spot even if you didn't ovulate. If you don't ovulate, you don't have a period and shed your uterine lining. After a bit, that lining becomes unstable and you will spot.
