Period is 5 days late and I have light pink thick discharge. Took ella (ulipristal acetate) one 2 and a half weeks ago. Could I be pregnant? Infection?

Yes: If your period is late, it's possible that you are pregnant. A home pregnancy test might be positive, so don't hesitate to take a home pregnancy test. Light pink thick discharge, so long as it's not smelly or itchy, is okay at this point.

Vaginal discharge: Did the tests include bacterial vaginosis, mycoplasma, ureoplasma, - usually tests are for gonorrhea, chalmydia. For bacterial vaginosis need flagyl 500 2 x/day x 7 no alcohol for mycoplasma, ureoplasma need zithromax 500 day 1 then 250 for 4 days it may also just be a variant due to hormones. Since it resolves spontaneously, odor can be blood f/u with doc/urgent care

Get tested: Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. Testing is important to determine the treatment and keep you and your partner safe.

Yeast infection: This could be a yeast infection that has caused some irritation leading to the change from thick white to pink. There may be other vaginal infections that this could be as well. You could try an over-the-counter yeast infection medication, but you may also wish to see your physician to be tested for specific infections and have a specific treatment prescribed.

Stp depo march 12 period cme 19 april end 23/7 dys. Thn cme on 30 of april n 1st may spotted pink n brown. White thick discharge n panty. This means?

Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone): Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is frequently associated with irregular bleeding both when you first start it and when you stop it. This is the most likely explaination but the thick white discharge could represent an infection especially if it is associated with an odor, itching, burning, or pain. The only way to know for sure is to be tested. Hope this helps.

I have clear, thick, pink jelly-like discharge - am I pregnant?

Pregnancy test: Only a pregnancy test can tell you if you are pregnant. It can take 2 weeks from conception (in general 4 weeks from last period) for a pregnant test to turn positive, if you have regular monthly periods. If you believe you may be pregnant, take a test in this time frame and that should give you your answer.

Had period last month for 4 days. Then 3 days after that had pink spotting for 2 days. 5 days after that brown thick discharge. What does that mean?

Possible...: With an abnormal vaginal discharge it is possible you might be suffering of an infection in which case you would need to be examined for a final diagnosis and treatment as necessary. It is also advisable to get a pregnancy test since this could be a possibility if you have been sexually active.

Check blood test: If your are not sure about the accuracy of your urine pregnancy tests consider a serum hcg test or pregnancy test via blood for confirmation either way. Discuss with your doctor if it is an option and if it is they can order it.

How do you know if meds for bv working cuz I took metro gel & now wen I wipe its thick yellow discharge on tissue mixed wit almost pink stuff?

Check for STDs: First, MetroGel is not the best treatment for bacterial vaginosis; metronidazole by mouth is much more effective. Second, yellow/pink discharge is atypical for BV and suggests other infection, especially STDs. Chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomonas often go along with BV, so make sure you were tested for them. Return to the doc or clinic where your BV was diagnosed and take it from there. Good luck!
