Late menses: A fishy smell is not a sign of pregnancy, but rather possibly of a non-sti called bacterial vaginosis. Bv can develop when the normal balance of the flora in your vaginal tract is altered. Sometimes hormonal fluctuations cause this, and the fact that your period was 8 days late suggests that there was some disturbance in your usual hormonal cycle. See your doctor if the odour persists. ...Read more

Having some pelvic pain or spasm for few days after period and some brownish/pinkish smelly discharge after taking norlevo 8 days ago. Am I pregnant?

Having some pelvic pain or spasm for few days after period and some brownish/pinkish smelly discharge after taking norlevo 8 days ago. Am I pregnant?

Maybe not, but...: One can do a pregnancy test later. A urine preg. test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened), 3 weeks after an emergency contraception pill, or 1 week after missing a normal regular 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. ...Read more
