Take a test: Pregnancy tests are accurate about 7-10 days after conception or wait until you miss your period. If you take a test you will know your answer. Spotting after your period is probably just old blood. Your pregnancy test will give you the answer. Then see a doctor to get your discharge evaluated ...Read more

Pregnancy: Although the timing of intercourse is not the most likely time in the cycle for pregnancy to occur, any time you have unprotected sex there is a possibility of pregnancy. It is also unlikely that you would have symptoms only 3-6 days after sex. Most would recommend waiting until you miss a period, and then take a pregnancy test. Best wishes, and use protection if you don't want to be pregnant. ...Read more

4 days after period, having high volume of  creamy white discharge. No odor or itching. Cause?

Candida (yeast)?: Your symptoms resemble yeast infection, also called candida and monilia. Are you near your period? Have you been taking antibiotics? Do you have diabetes or high blood glucose ("sugar")? These factors can increase the chance for candida. This infection can improve with over-the-counter vagina creams or tablets. If no improvement, then see your medical provider. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Sounds like possible: Yeast infection. Be seen and have cultures done for a diagnosis. Unprotected sex will result in pregnancy and potentially infection. Be safe and all the best. ...Read more

Vaginal discharge: Vaginal discharge can be very worrisome sometimes. By what you described it could be a simple vaginitis or candidiasis. Also a normal cervical mucous its sometimes seen after a period. Patients your age must rule out cervical cancer and ovarian or fallopian tubes disease. Those can also have abnormal vaginal secretions. ...Read more

Maybe. Maybe not.: A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) 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 therefore 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

Have it checked out: Find a clinic or GYN MD who can assess the discharge and determine if it is an infection or not. Any malodorous discharge is a "suspect" for the same as it is providing you "clues" to the "crime". So make an "arrest" as soon as you can by seeing the MD so as not to be "incarcerated" by the odor. ...Read more
