Hello. I'm currently 7 days late. The week before my period was due I was having white discharge. Since then I have had a lot of discharge that is white and sticky. Never been pregnant before. Had mirena inserted March 3 but had to have it removed 3 weeks later. My boyfriends sister is a nurse and said I can be very fertile after having it removed. The day before I had the mirena removed we had unprotected sex and he came in me. My last period was March 27. Took a pregnancy test Tuesday but was negative. I started cramping slightly 2 days ago and thought my period would come after that but it hasn't. No PMS symptoms have yet to arrive but my nipples are a bit sensitive. Normally I don't cramping unless day before period and I don't normally have discharge this long. It's very wet and I think I start period but when I look it's only white discharge.

Thanks for your anticipated reply
