Cyst, pregnant, ovulating, or just over thinking? EllaDior 1 child; Los Angeles, California 18 posts

So, I just ended my period last monday and a couple days later I started having an odorless, white milky discharge. If you go and read my other post you'll understand why I'm questioning pregnancy. I'm also bloated, mainly where my pants line is:/ I'm just not sure what this discharge is? It's unusual for me... I'd link the other post but I'm not really sure how to do that :?



so what would you guys say?
I know this isn't that descriptive, so if you have any questions please ask. Some answers would be nice :D

Have you taken a test?



I honestly think you might be over thinking. When you think you're pregnant, you think EVERYTHING is a pregnancy sign. lol.

odorless white milky discharge can be a sign of ovulation, if there is any concern see you GYN, or family physician.

Take a pregnancy test.
And if you have had unprotected sex...
Go get tested.
Possible yeast infection or bacterial infection(least likely). I know I have had infections that I thought were nothing and then became full blown, I have also just assumed one was a yeast from the symptoms and it turned out to be bacterial.

Nah I haven't just because I wanted to wait a few days and see if I had anymore "pregnancy symptoms" lol I know what you mean!! The only reason I think I could be is just because my man did finish in me, and even though I took the plan b pill, I know those don't always work. But I know if you have a cyst, you kind of have the same symptoms.. so I wanted to see if anyone who's had a cyst before could give me some input you know?

It could be an infection. This is TMI, but me and my man had sex last week, on sunday night (unprotected) and he did anal on me (I don't think that's the right wording lmao) and then he went back into my vagina... and I know you can get an infection from that.

I just thought it would be a little early for ovulation, but I'm not exactly sure when I ovulate. I'm just always assuming every month it's a week or two before my period starts. lol

& also the bloating? :/ it's super uncomfortable. I can barely button my pants. That's where my question about the cyst and maaaaaaaybe being pregnant come into the question.

Yes, that CAN give you an infection. I would definately want to go get checked out if you are having an abundance of abnormal discharge. If they do a pelvic exam they can tell if you are pregnant by looking at your cervix also, it changes to a different color when you are pregnant.

It's enough discharge to where I can wipe it off my panties, and it's just annoying. At least two or three times a day. But I can't feel it coming out or anything.

Uhh no it isn't. EWCM is a sign of ovulation, which is Egg White Cervical mucous or Cervical mucous that is the consistency of uncooked egg whites and strings between your fingers.

as we are both health professionals we know what she described and what you described is not much different and that could be what it looks like for her. everyone is different, i'm just here to help to the best of my ability, not to argue our diagnosis skills.

If you look it up on any TTC site it will tell you that stretchy cervical mucous is a sign of impending ovulation. Creamy cervical mucous can often follow ovulation. Not everyone is exactly the same, but however from TTC I can tell you all of the ladies I talked to on here about TTC all said those things.
Creamy cervical mucous that is white in color is completely different than clear "snot" like cervical mucous being clear.

I always have that, but if it is abnormal to you and you had anal sex followed by vaginal the possibility of infection is high. I know when I had a bacterial infection, I felt very bloated as well and my uterus ached basically.
