Happens sometimes: A doctor can check to see if there is any medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of their mucus discharge, their periods, or a missed period on occasion. Some women feel normal after a few days, but others have bothersome symptoms and follow-up with their doctors. A urine pregnancy test is very accurate if done correctly after a missed period.
