HPT: Ok, I am a little confused here. It says next choice" under medications. Does this mean that you have used this emergency contraceptive since your last period? Since this is an unknown, I will just provide a response for a woman who is sexually active with a late period and white vaginal discharge. I would take a home pregnancy test. It is the only way to know for sure if you are pregnant.

Yeast infection?: Cannot diagnose on the internet without an exam and looking at the discharge. Might be helpful to have your obstetrician look at this. Not likely to be harmful to your baby, and hope you have a great one.

Normal vs infection: Some women's discharge varies w/time of month (relative to menses/periods). If you're otherwise asymptomatic, you can just take a wait & see attitude. If there's any itchiness to your vagina (i'm assuming that's where your discharge is coming from), you might have a yeast infection which should respond to many over-the-counter antifungals. If you're sexually active w/o using condoms, go see ur doc.
