Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I am experiencing vaginal discharge that appears white in color. I had sex on 5th July and took emergency contraception (iPills), and my last period was on 13th June. My menstrual cycle is usually in the range of 28 to 32 days. Is there a possibility of being pregnant? What should I do to induce my period as soon as possible?



Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Based on the information you provided, there is no risk of pregnancy. Whether your cycle length is 28 or 32 days, ovulation occurred either on June 27th or July 1st, which is before the date of intercourse on July 5th. Your period is expected to arrive within 3-7 days, and there is no need for hormonal treatment to induce it earlier. I hope this addresses your concerns.
