User :   not that foul
Doctor :   could you describe the smell and appearance of the discharge?
User :   im using pads so it tends to look yellowish but almost invisible
Doctor :   ok.
User :   the smell is like the presence of some blood i guess
User :   not sure
Doctor :   ok
User :   a doctor friend of mine said i should wait and retake the blood test
Doctor :   hen it is recommended to have a vaginal swab test done to identify infection
Doctor :   yes, you can retake the blood test in another 5-7 days
User :   can infections delay my period? ive had horrible when i was pregnant with my son and that was horrible....
Doctor :   blood tests usually shows positive after 11 days post conception if pregnancy is present
User :   ohhh
Doctor :   infections can delay your periods, but the soreness in breasts might nit be related to it
User :   well...i had unprotected sex on the 13th the day before my period was due....and this friday...
Doctor :   *might not be
Doctor :   having unprotected intercourse just before your periods is usually considered safe, but if you have ovulate late in your menstrual cycle, then risk of pregnancy cannot be ruled out
Doctor :   Ovulation=egg release from ovary
User :   usually before my periods my breast get really swollen and they hurt really bad....right now they just feel bigger and heavier and my nipples are really sensitive and sore
Doctor :   egg can remain alive for upto 4days inside you, so if sperms reach it and fertilize it, pregnancy will result
User :   i do think i ovulate late....i think i ovulate a couple of days before getting my period, not sure
Doctor :   ok. then in that case, you will need to wait and repeat the test after about a week
Doctor :   to see if is hows positive
Doctor :   *if it shows
User :   i still have one hpt left, should i wait 5 days to take the urine test?
Doctor :   urine tests show positive after about 20 days post conception, so you need to wait longer
User :   oh ok
User :   how soon are the symptoms ?
Doctor :   plus UPTs also have high false negative tests
Doctor :   so blood test is acurate
Doctor :   symptoms can vary in onset in women
Doctor :   few women get them withing 24 hours of fruitful intercourse, few get later and few do nit get any symptoms at all.
User :   i didn't get symptoms with my son....except for panic attacks
User :   is the first time since my son that my period has been late
User :   it either arrives the day before its due...or maybe the day after...
User :   never 9 days
Doctor :   ok
User :   i get cramps mostly in the mornings
User :   or when i sleep
User :   any other thing i should watch out for? is the discharge common in early pregnancies if that was the case?
Doctor :   yes discharge is also common in early pregnancies
Doctor :   but without any foul smell or itching, burning etc
Doctor :   watch out for any other new symptom development
User :   ok then
Doctor :   be on look for warning signs like worsening cramps, bleeding etc
User :   what would that mean?
Doctor :   and report immediately to your gynecologist
Doctor :   that would mean onset of periods or onset of early miscarriage
