Possibly.: When pregnant, vaginal discharge is thin, white ; milky. But because this is not a diagnostic symptom, a pregnancy test should be taken if you miss your period. Leukorrhea is normal vaginal discharge (d/c). D/c is composed of cellular debris, vaginal secretions ; bacteria ; is stimulated by ^ vaginal blood flow ; ^ estrogen. D/c ^ is seen w ovulation (clear/stretchy), clear/watery or white d/c >.

both occur during menstrual cycle.& pregnancy (white/ milky). It can be thin or thick & white to yellowish. Leukorrhea usually doesn't cause an odor. If you have a discharge which causes redness, itching, burning, swelling or foul odor – please have it checked.

This would not be: diagnostic for pregnancy. The only way to know for sure is with a pregnancy test. Take care.
