what's going on?
My menstrual cycle normally is plus minus 32 days long. I'm 9 days late at the moment, no sign of period! Some normal PMS symptoms, like skin outbreaks, stomach discomfort, moodyness....but normally my breasts get very sore and they are perfectly fine at the moment! For the past few days I've also noticed a thick, egg-white like discharge from my vagina when I go to the loo. Just like ovulation fluids.

What is going on?? Could I be pregnant (but I've been using contraception religiously). HELP!!

If you miss a period on contraception, you must always check a pregnancy test. There could be other reasons, but pregnancy must first be excluded.
