When should I be worried about my period being late?

  1. Teddybear

    My period is 3 days late and i had protected sex 2 days before the expected period. Now, I’m getting a white/clear stretchy discharge. Can that mean that I’m pregnant? 🙁

  2. Hello teddybear,

    If, as you said, you had protected intercourse, the chances for you to be pregnant are almost non-existent. Moreover, it was 2 days before your period, that is, when you weren’t on your fertile window, which makes the chances even lower.

    If you didn’t have an accidental like the condom breaking, there’s no reason for you to be concerned. Sometimes, a woman’s menstruation delays for other reasons aside from pregnancy, such as stress, hormonal imbalances, etc.

    Anyway, you can take a pregnancy test in a few days for your own peace of mind. If your period does not show up, you can visit your doctor for further help.

    I hope this helps,
