I had my last period Sept 27, and it was... I had my last

Customer Question

I had my last period Sept 27, and it was... I had my last period Sept 27, and it was already delayed 5 days due to stress. On Oct 5, I had an accident where I fell down some stairs. I emerged with bruises and cuts all over, I was on bed rest for two days
but still, one week later, incredibly sore. It was awful, and I slept a lot. Well, I just passed the two week mark from the accident and my muscles don't hurt anymore, my wounds have finally healed nicely and my bruises are starting to fade away. However,
I didn't see any discharge when I was supposed to be ovulating mid-month, but I did have cramping. My next menstrual period is due Oct 25, and yesterday, Oct 21, I had a one-time showing of clear, mucus discharge. It's gone now, but my temperature has gone
up. Could my cycle have been thrown off, or should I be scanning for a possible pregnancy?

Breasts are sore, but only minor. That is a normal occurrence for me, however, close to the start of the cycle.

Hi there,

I am online and will be happy to answer your qeustions.

These symptoms are most likely normal and occur in most females close to their periods.

you should check for pregnancy only if your period is delayed ( after 0ct 28- oct 30 ) before that urine pregnancy test would not be positive anyway.

Please let me know if i should provide further clarifications.
