Cervical mucous?: Thick clear discharge is usually from the cervical glands. This can be from an ovulation or from a blocked gland on the cervix that released it's contents. It would be fine to keep an eye on it for a few more days but if symptoms increase or persist, an exam by a gynecologist would be most helpful. ...Read more

Unusual symptoms: Are you sure your Mirena (levonorgestrel) is still in place? Still worth checking a urine pregnancy test! The IUDs are highly effective forms of birth control, but can fail.

Period is 6 days away. Had mild cramps and lower back pain. Clear and slimy discharge. Preggers or period?

Hard to tell: 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

Vaginal discharge: Some vaginal discharge can be normal and this changes throughout the month depending on where you are in the menstrual cycle. Use past experience as your guide. If the current amount and type of discharge you have is not typical for you based on many years of having cycles then it needs to be evaluated for infection. If what is happening now and is the same as always then it is likely normal. ...Read more

Discharge: Since your pregnant, and the discharge is clear it may be normal. But I don't like the back pain issue. You need an u/a, and then an ultrasound since your pregnant, not xrays, ct scans since you are pregnant. Also a culture of the discharged may help. ...Read more

Lower back pain, stomach cramping, nausea, clear/white discharge, sore breast but npt. Af came 2/14 and 3/13. But I feel movements in uterus?

Hard to say: Home pregnancy tests are pretty accurate, so it's unlikely you're pregnant, especially with on-time periods. The feelings you're having could intestinal movements, and the pain could be fibroids or endometriosis. Best to see a gyn doc to try to sort it out with you. ...Read more

Lower back pain and brown discharge, what to do?

See a doctor: I am assuming the discharge you are describing is coming from vagina/urethrea? If you are female, it really depends if you are on your menses/if this is a normal cycle for you. If that is the case it could be endometriosis. If you are a male or female with discharge from urethrea then you need to see a doctor asap as this may be a severe infection or connection between your intestine and urethrea. ...Read more
