Hello , I'm new to this site but I'm 23 and I haven't had my period since April 13th .. I took an pregnancy test it came back postive so I decided to get an clearblue digital pregnancy test and it came back not pregnant and I've taken several since then .. so I went to the dollar tree and got some cheap test and they came back negative too before then I had an dream that I took an pregnancy test and it was postive with an very faint line which the first one I took was like that I have been having dreams about children a lot lately and I also had an second dream that I took another pregnancy test and that time it was clear as day POSTIVE.. we are really hoping I'm pregnant

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.
