Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

Chances of pregnancy are negligible.

Withdrawal method is not 100% effective in avoiding pregnancy.
This is because secretions prior to ejaculation also contain few sperms.

As you say you can pinpoint your ovulation by looking for your discharge, then having intercourse up to at least 3 days prior to ovulation to 1 to 3 days after would insure possible conception. Having intercourse prior to ovulation insures that sperm will be present when the egg is released as sperms are viable for atleast 3 days in your body.

Considering this fact and your history, you had contact 7 days back which should not put you at risk of pregnancy.

Now the only option you have is to wait for your periods. If at all you miss them you need to test for pregnancy.

I hope I have answered your query.

Take care.

Hello there.

Thanks for writing back.

The perception of abdomen swelling can be just psychological owing to the physical contact you had. This is because abdominal swelling/distension does not occur so early in pregnancy. It only after 3 months.

Secondly if you feel a separate lump in your abdomen then it could be due to other causes which needs to be ascertained by physical examination and ultrasound.

You said you notice a discharge always at your ovulation time. Considering your last menses on 27th October, it is your ovulation period and the discharge can be explained by cervical sticky discharge that occurs normally during ovulation.

If you do not have any foul smell, itching or redness in the area with discharge then it is not due to any genital infection and is pretty much normal in ovulation period.


I hope I have answered your query.

You are most welxome.

Yes you should as there is nothing at the moment which you can do avoid pregnancy.
Its only when you turn positive, you need to.

Hello.

Thanks for writing back.

Increased discharge can be a symptom of pregnancy. But none of the symptoms of pregnancy appear so early. Its only after you miss you periods that the hormone levels are high enough to produce symptoms.

So do not worry.

The increased discharge is cervical mucus which increases and gets sticky during ovulation. You must be going through ovulation now considering your last menses date.

Take care.
