User :   H
User :   Hi doctor
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   yes I have a question that has been making me slightly paranoid
User :   I had my periods just recently from 29th march - 4th april
User :   and want to know that can I get pregnant even after having a regular period. My period cycle is usually 28-30 days but this time it came in 26 days
User :   Doctor are you there?
Doctor :   The chance of pregnancy is very unlikely
Doctor :   if you had your period normally
Doctor :   By normally i mean if the flow was normal
Doctor :   and the period was not just a spotting.
User :   yes normal no it was clots all the way
Doctor :   If it was not spotting
Doctor :   then the chance that you could be pregnant is very unlikely.
User :   It was heavy clots on my pad and also when I used the restroom... heavy bleeding for 3 days and rest was light
User :   I am experiencing gas and white discharge after my period is this normal
User :   Actually now after my period has ended i am having gas and slight white discharge...can this be attributed to bad stomach
User :   Also prior to this I have taken 3 HPT's which came negative and had my regular periods... but still i am concerned
Doctor :   How severe is the discharge?
Doctor :   Is it like spotting or soaking the pad/undergarment like?
User :   it comes with the gas or when i pass stool..
User :   its white discharge just little bit not enough to soak a pad
User :   what do you advice doctor
User :   sir are you there?
Doctor :   Since you report that the discharge is small
Doctor :   I do not find any reason to worry.
User :   if it were more then
Doctor :   It probably is secondary to hormone disturbances.
User :   but nothing to do with pregnancy... right? Even if the discharge is large
Doctor :   If there is an increase in the discharge, a thick discharge, foul smelling discharge
User :   I just want to negate all possibilities
User :   no
Doctor :   or if you find additional symptoms such as itching, burning sensation
Doctor :   then you will need to consult a gynecologist
User :   no nothing like that
Doctor :   to rule out infection.
User :   ok
User :   But nothing concerned to pregnancy please advice
User :   sir are you there
Doctor :   The symptoms are not suggestive of pregnancy.
Doctor :   Like I mentioned to you in the beginning of the chat, if you had your periods normally or with increase flow
Doctor :   then it is not suggestive of pregnancy.
User :   also is it normal to have slightly heavy breasts even after your periods
Doctor :   Breast changes are one of the features of pregnancy but not an absolute feature of pregnancy.
Doctor :   Let me put across in simple words to you.
User :   yes sir
User :   please go ahead
Doctor :   If these is history of unprotected sexual intercourse during the periond
Doctor :   of ovualation
Doctor :   menstrual irregularities can occur commonly due to 3 factors
Doctor :   1. Pregnancy
Doctor :   2. Infection
Doctor :   3. Stress factors.
User :   I am stressed doctor thats what it is so i imagine that all the things that my body experiences is because of possibility of pregnancy
Doctor :   Most common and well known symptoms of pregnancy is absence of periods
Doctor :   or spotting during period
Doctor :   Since you report that you had your periods on the contrary it was heavy
User :   yes as i always have clots... so in pregnancy one does not pass clots
User :   is that so
Doctor :   Passing clots is against the feature of pregnancy
Doctor :   on the contrary, passing thick massess and large clots
Doctor :   are suggestive of an abortion than pregnancy.
Doctor :   Hence you need not worry now.
Doctor :   I am concerned of the white discharge that you mentioned.
Doctor :   Watch out for those symptoms and if any of the symptoms that I discussed earlier appear
Doctor :   you will need to see a gynecologist who after a pelvic examination can diagnose/rule out an infection.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
Doctor :   Are you there?
Doctor :   Are you there?
Doctor :   Are you there?
Doctor :   I have to close the window as you are not responding.
Doctor :   Please chat with us if there are any queries.
