Clear watery discharge a few days before period, lower abdominal cramps included. Could I be pregnant?

Can't tell yet: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Is clear watery discharge normal right before your period? Or is it a sign of pregnancy?

Likely normal: Vaginal discharge changes throughout the menstrual cycle based on the changing hormones throughout the month. It can change from white to clear to sticky to runny.... Discharge isn't concerning until it causes itching, foul odor, or pain. The discharge is unlikely to tell if you are pregnant, you should take a pregnancy test if you miss your period. ...Read more
