I am 43, had unprotected sex with my husband 1 & 2 days after my period had ended. My period duration is usually of 3 days. We had unprotected sex the 4th and 5th days. On the 6th and 7th days, I had ovaries cramps and lower back pain, which has never happened before. On the 8th, 9th and 10th days, I had thick white discharge. It didn't stink, it had no particular odor. It looked like a smeared Hawaiian dessert Haupia, like a smear of liquidy pudding or jello,but white. I hope I am not pregnant, I don't think I could get pregnant with all my health issues and medications that I take. But it does worry me. I have been less hungry,but wanting ice cream late at night. Since day 7th, I have craved tofu, seaweed, kalamata olives, basil, bone marrow and lavender ice cream.
My health: No kids. Obese. Hx of miscarriages. Currently recovering from diabetic foot ulcer. Sugars controlled with insulin and pills. A1C at 8. Hx of peripheral neuropathy, gastroparesis, and PEs, have clotting factor 5. The only change, that I think could have allowed me to get pregnant, if indeed that is it, is that I have been off of the warfarin and the lovenox for 3 weeks. My INR reads 0.6.
Should I give it a couple of weeks before I take a pregnancy test?
Thanks for your response Gail. 10-days after menses ended I started period again, this time longer, darker blood and with lots of large clots. 2 periods in one month. No sign of pregnancy. But I'm extremely tired.
