I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend two days ago……

…….There was no complete insertion of his penis though and he withdrew his penis as he felt like he’s coming. The next day, I had vaginal discharges -white, sticky, and odorless substance. I know that it’s normal for women to have discharges. But could this be a sign that I am pregnant? Please help. Thanks!

 

If there was any possibility of semen making contact with the vagina. There is a chance of pregnancy. The only way to know if you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test 14 days after the unprotected sex. You can trust the result then.  Having vaginal discharge however, isn’t really related to pregnancy- let me explain.

Vaginas and penis‘ are self-cleaning organs. Much like earwax and tears are parts of the normal functioning of the ear and eye, people secrete moisture from the membranes that line the vagina. These normal secretions help control the growth of organisms—like yeast and certain bacteria—that are normal, healthy parts of the vagina.

While everyone’s bodies are different, a certain amount of discharge and odor can be completely normal! Knowing what is normal for your body will help you to know when something is abnormal for your body!

If you noticed a change in odor and/or discharge, it can be a sign of infection. It may be a good idea to make an appointment at Teen Clinic for a pelvic exam to make sure you’re healthy.  Some infections like yeast and bacterial vaginitis can occur organically from imbalances in the body. Some of these infections may resolve themselves, but others require medical treatment.
