Question: TTC, Pink vaginal discharge, cramps, high temp?

 mdufty - Sat Nov 14, 2009 2:12 am

So, my husband and I have been trying to conceive for awhile now. I'm about 16 days past ovulation, and my period was due yesterday. On 6 days past ovulation I had some spotting going on, cramps, rise in temp, and such. Ever since then spotting stopped, but I still have the cramps and a temp that stays around 99.3. Today, I noticed some pink vaginal discharge that is like a creamy light pink color very light pink. Still have cramps, my breasts hurt, and such. I really don't know what to think with this discharge. At 13 days past ovulation i took a pregnancy test and it was negative. People said i may have took it early. Unsure, if I am pregnant. I'm clueless. What do I do?

User avatar Hello,
All of this is quite normal variation. I would repeat the pregnancy test in a week if you haven't had your period by then. Sometimes in the early days after conception, the hCG levels are not yet detectable on the test. While these are quite accurate in most cases, they are not 100%.

Good luck in your efforts to conceive.
