User :   We are trying to conceive and I had 2 mature eggs that my dr confirmed. I ovulated on the 14th. had intercourse on the 12, 14, and 16. I am due to start my period today and only have a thick white odorless discharge and no signs of starting my period. I took a hpt and it was negative. Could I be pregnant and just testing too soon?
Doctor :   Hello
User :   hello
Doctor :   may i know your age please ?
User :   Well don't be shocked...but I am 43 and had all the testing done and Dr confirmed that I can still conceive all my LHS (?) levels were good and he checked my eggs and I had 2 at ovulation
Doctor :   thats ok
Doctor :   since when you have been getting this discharge ?
User :   For about 4-5 days now
Doctor :   do you have any other medical problem ?
User :   No
Doctor :   diabetes or high blood pressure ?
User :   No sir
Doctor :   is the discharge constant ?
User :   Yes...thick, white and no odor
Doctor :   any vaginal itching ?
User :   no
User :   no lol
Doctor :   ok and you are about to start your period today ?
Doctor :   now a thick, white discharge is common at the beginning and end of your cycle. Normal white discharge is not accompanied by itching. If itching is present, thick white discharge can indicate a yeast infection.
Doctor :   Before ovulation (the release of the egg), there is a lot of mucous produced, up to 30 times more than after ovulation.
User :   Yes sir I am supposed to and no signs or symptoms of it at all. I also had some really sharp, quick, pulling pains in my lower abdomin about 4-5 days ago whenever I got up or moved quickly. Now they are gone also
Doctor :   but in your case its been going on for 4- 5 days now
Doctor :   so that does warrants a examination by a gynecologist
Doctor :   it does not look like a infection as there is no itching and no change in color
Doctor :   but still since the duration is 4- 5 days its advisable that you should see a gynecologist
User :   OK. well I did the home ovulation kit and it said I had the LH surge on the 14th. I also had the egg white (tmi) discharge that my dr said to look for
Doctor :   yes thats correct
Doctor :   but 5 days is a bit long
User :   Ok what about the low ab pains I had? Could that have been implantation??
Doctor :   and there is no harm in getting it checked now that you are also trying to conceive
Doctor :   when did you had the pain ?
User :   About 4-5 days ago as well
Doctor :   which side ?
User :   Both
Doctor :   how severe is that pain on the scale to 1 to 10 ?
Doctor :   1 is the least painful
User :   It was about an 8 and it only lasted for a few seconds off and on
Doctor :   ok well implantation pain should not be that severe and that with the discharge now, its better to get a examination done
User :   Ok well the paid has completley stopped and it was only for 2 days. I do not have any pain now at all
User :   pain
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   still a discharge of more than 2 days is a requirement enough to see a gynecologist
Doctor :   do mention about your pain to your physician too
Doctor :   and the home pregnancy test will become positive only after 9 - 10 days of successful fertilization
User :   OK so is it an early sign of conceiving or no? Also, is it too early to test since I am due for my period today. Could it be leukerrea (sp)
User :   You answered my question sorry lol
Doctor :   your welcome
Doctor :   take care
