It is 2014: You do not honestly need a doctor to tell you that having unprotected sex leads to pregnancy. Do you? A teenager knows that. If you did not want to be pregnant then you could have used birth control or emergency contraception afterwards. But, now you are here and you are asking us to guess? We do not ever guess when it comes to pregnancy. If your next period does not start on time then you TEST. ...Read more

Is it normal to discharge cervical vaginal mucus with streak of blood ? is it a sign im pregnant? im a little bit worried because it's my 1st time

When was your last: menstrual period. Don't worry some women will experience implantation bleeding which can manifest as streaks of blood in the cervical mucus. Are you having unprotected sex? In order to find out if you are pregnant, wait until you miss your period then take a pregnancy test. If it still comes out negative, visit your ob/gyn for a blood test. While there she can perform a physical exam. ...Read more

I'm 13 weeks pregnant and this morning when I went to the toilet I noticed clear vaginal mucus discharge, what could be the cause of that?

I'm 13 weeks pregnant and this morning when I went to the toilet I noticed clear vaginal mucus discharge, what could be the cause of that?

Could be normal: It could be normal physiologic vaginal discharge which is typically described and seen as white or transparent, can be thick or thin, and is typically odorless and nothing to worry about. You may also have a change in your vaginal pH causing extra discharge. Less likely are bacterial vaginosis or an STD as those usually smell bad, and the discharge can be green, yellow, gray, or off white. ...Read more

I am 39 weeks 2 days pregnant and from last night I have noticed an increase in vaginal discharge.Is it the mucus or water has broken or normal.

I am 39 weeks 2 days pregnant and from last night I have noticed an increase in vaginal discharge.Is it the mucus or water has broken or normal.

Common experience: Many women experience an increase in vaginal discharge towards the end of a pregnancy. The mucus plug may also feel like more discharge. Generally, the amniotic fluid will feel and look like water. It may have the consistency of urine, but won't smell like urine. When the water breaks in earnest, you won't have much doubt! you'll be sitting in a puddle! good luck with your delivery. Lgromkomd. ...Read more
