Missed period, tired, headaches, back pain. Pregnancy test negative. Heavy vaginal discharge like jelly. Reason?

Hi, I missed my period, im now 10-11 days late but I took a home pregnancy test 2 days ago and it came out negative. Although, im tired pretty much all the time, getting really bad headaches and lower backache , and since the day i should have started my period ive been having clear/white vaginal discharge and its gradually gaining in quantity each day, but today it was a huge amount and was like jelly. Is it something to do with my missed period, please help. Charlotte

sounds like you might have an ovarian cyst or a late ovulation.
Why do I think this?
Sometimes you can " miss" an ovulation - what can happen is that the cyst that is supposed to ovulate doesn`t and then it can either get smaller and dissappear or just get bigger and bigger.
The cyst that gets bigger can produce a lot of estrogenes ( female hormones) and this can cause a build up of cervical secretion - which can in effect look like jelly - it gathers inside the opening of the cervix and can then be released in large lumps or a large jelly like lump.
Often this might occur when the larger cyst does rupture - later than normal.
This could cause backpain.
Headaches can be caused by a lack of progesteron - and estrogene dominance ( from the cyst).
You should expect your period to come within the next 2-3 weeks.
You shouldn`t worry about this - this often happens.
In a nutshell: no ovulation midcycle - cyst doesn`t ovulate and grows bigger - producing estrogenes - that can cause an estrogene dominance - headaches, breast tension, feeling bloated, weight gain, extreme vaginal jelly like discharge, pain -

But just to make sure - check with your doctor.
The cyst still might be there and growing bigger.

all the best!
kind regards,
