Question: Early pregnancy sign

 crystalwv - Sun Jan 23, 2005 1:54 am

Hi I recently had a TR and have not been pregnany in over 10 yrs. I tested + on my opk on the 16th so I am now 6dpo. My ? is I started 2 days ago with a creamy discharge and last night a lot of clear and creamy discharge not accompained by itching or burning. I am also having sharp like pains on my right side. This discharge is odd for me since I usually dry up right after ovulation. Could these be signs of early pregancy or not. ANy info will help since it has been 10yrs.

User avatar crystalwv,
It could be leukorrhea. We just have to wait and see, since describing these symptoms can be rather subjective. Leukorrhea is infact an excess of a normal phenomenon (normal vaginal discharge). The increase of estrogen in your system and the greater blood flow around your vaginal area is the source of this increase in vaginal discharge.
Best of luck!
