Creamy white discharge - pregnancy sign?

So, I usually have a 25-16 day period cycle which means about one week after ovulation I get my period. I have been having unprotected sex for around the last 6 months (5 months with a previous partner and now with someone new). I ovulated last week so I should have my period on Monday coming but today when I was in bed I thought I already got it. I ran to the bathroom thinking the wetness was blood but instead I had produced a load of white, creamy mucus and all through today I have had bouts of it on and off. Is this a normal pre-period sympton or could it be pregnancy post ovulation?

It could be both! Until you take a test and get a concrete answer, you won't really experience any tell tale symptoms as they're all thugs you can experience during PMS.

If it's abnormal for you then maybe it could be more of a sign of early pregnancy so here's hoping for you! It's very normal to have an increase in discharge during pregnancy so could very well be!

Grit your teeth until it's time to test and good luck! flowers

It is sometimes a sign of ovulation. Or are you sure it wasn't sperm?

Not what you asked but are you really trying for a baby with a partner you've been seeing for a month?

Unprotected sex with two partners could be an STI, thrush or pregnancy. POAS and get a sexual health check. Are you trying to get pregnant?

It's defineitrly not an STI as I took both of their virginities and neither have slept with anyone else. The partner of one month I was with for three years and then was with the other person now back with him if that makes sense and it defineitly wasn't sperm as I haven't had sex in a few days now

if it's white mucus it is absolutely fine and normal to get at various times during your cycle and doesn't mean pregnancy. If it is cottage cheese like or smells it is most likely a bacteria infection and you should pop to the gp.

You should not be having unprotected sex as there is always a risk of an sti ( you can never be 100% sure your partner hasn't slept with someone else, especially if they had a break from you and now you are back together) or a risk of pregnancy which is also not sensible given you don't seem to be in a long term solid relationship.

Best get some contraception to protect yourself and monitor that discharge smile Also if it put's your mind at ease take a pregnancy test in a week x

I actually had this in early pregnancy and it was the symptom that made me take a test! I remember it being quite a lot and quite thick..
Best to go to GP and get it checked out though, just in case.
