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

Vaginal infection.: It appears that you have a vaginal infection, most likely a bacterial infection call bacterial vaginitis (vaginosis). It can be treated with antibiotics, usually Metronidazole (Flagyl) if you are bothered by the discharge. The medication may be used in any trimester of pregnancy. see your doctor for an evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. It can be normal to have increased vaginal secretions when pregnant. Especially leukorrhea which is a mixe of dead white blood cells, vaginal scretions and sloughed cells. However, this should not be malodorous. You may have a vaginal infection. Recommend that you be medically evaluated for this. ...Read more

See your GYN: The first thing that comes to mind when knew has malodorous vaginal discharge and infertility is infection. Especially if you have concomitant back or lower abdominal pain. Pelvic inflammatory disease is common and can even be caused by normal flora that grows outside normal amounts, such as Garderella, aka bacterial vaginosis. Especially as you are attempting conception get checked and treated. ...Read more

Take pregnancy test: Home pregnancy tests are accurate once your period is late. So best way to determine if you're pregnant is to take home pregnancy test rather than asking someone online. Since you're asking about pregnancy, I assume that you've had unprotected sex which then makes brown smelly discharge concerning for sexually transmitted disease. You'll need to see Family Doc, GYN or Planned Parenthood re dischar ...Read more

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
