Thick white discharge, ALOT, slight itching, tender nipples, slight cramps, had unprotected sex 2 days after last period, period due in 1wk. Preg or pms?

See details: A lot of discharge with itching suggests vaginitis that is most likely from Candida (yeast). You should be checked by your GYN. There might be more that one infection. The other symptoms can be from PMS. If your period is not due for a week, and you were pregnant, the egg just implanted and would not cause symptoms yet. Wait and see if you get your period. Do a pregnancy test if you don't. ...Read more

If condom, not PG: The way your question is written, I am interpreting that you had sex WITH a condom on days 6-13, but you may have meant without? The symptoms could be related to either the luteal phase of cycle or early pregnancy; favor luteal phase if using condoms.

No: 99.99% you are not pregnant. But by all means, see a doctor to be sure. Over the counter tests are extremely accurate these days, and your last period was WAY long enough ago. Perhaps you have gotten yourself so freaked out you're imagining and overestimating your symptoms? I say this as as someone pregnant 4 times, not just as a physician. See your doctor if you can't get over the paranoia.Bewell ...Read more

Set limits: Sexual behavior should be mutually delightful. You need to tell your BF what limits you expect. He probably does not know what your end points might be so you need to advise him. He may have his own limits. If he persists in overstepping what you are comfortable with, then you might consider another BF. ...Read more
