Question: What causes missed period negative pregnancy test white discharge?

Missing your period can be worrying after having sexual intercourse. If you are expecting, missing period with white discharge is a good sign.

However, missed period negative pregnancy test and white discharge could be due to minor technical issues, natural causes, or a medical condition.

Hypothalamic dysfunction, premature menopause, polycystic ovaries or stress for a long time could delay period and test negative.


What causes missed period negative pregnancy test white discharge?

1.  Pregnancyperiod delayed for 1 month pregnancy

Signs of pregnancy may take days or weeks to show up. However, your missed period and a negative pregnancy test could mean pregnancy. This usually occurs if you take a test very early or if pregnancy hormones are still very low to detect.

What causes pregnancy?

Like most women who get pregnant naturally, the sperm fertilizes an ovum released during ovulation at the fallopian tube. The Fallopian tube is an extension of the uterus and is about 10cm long.

With the help of ciliary cells and muscular movement, the fallopian tube moves back the embryo to the uterus for implantation.

Pregnancy does not occur only after fertilization. The embryo must be implanted into the endometrial wall of the uterus. Between 6 and 12 days after fertilization, implantation should occur in most women.

After implantation occurs, some women may start having very early symptoms of pregnancy that may include spotting that is very light with mild abdominal pains.

Once the embryo is implanted, the human body begins to secrete the hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin – HCG) that can be detected to confirm pregnancy.

If pregnant, HCG levels will double within 48 — 72 hours and this determines if your pregnancy is viable or not. In some women, HCG is very low and may not be detected after missing your period.

However, if pregnant, you could experience

  • Bloating
  • Increased desire for a particular kind of food
  • Increased feeling of vomiting
  • Sore breast
  • Itchy nipples
  • Swollen breast with pain on the right and left breast
  • Increased urination
  • Less than normal bleeding from your vagina while expecting your period

Abdominal cramps may also be a sign of pregnancy. While expecting period, abdominal cramps that is much lighter than period cramps is a pregnancy symptom and occurs due to implantation.

After a missed period, pregnancy cramps occur because of hormone changes and improved uterine blood supply.

What to do if I feel pregnant but test negative?

You should wait and recheck after days or sometimes weeks. It’s possible you are pregnant, but HCG hormones are very low to detect.

2.  Pregnancy test at wrong time of daynegative pregnancy test

Getting the time right for pregnancy test is important. If you take a test after drinking lots of water, it will dilute your urine and result in false negative results.

The best time for testing is in the morning when your urine is very concentrated.

3.  You are in your mid 40’s

Due to hormone changes and depletion of ovarian follicles, women will start experiencing unusual symptoms before menopause.

Menopause, which means cessation of menstruation, occurs at an average age of 51 years. Before this time, women begin to have an irregular menstrual cycle and period.

A late period, hot flashes, decreased sexual interest and dry vaginal suggest menopause is around the corner.

Missed period negative pregnancy test after 40 years may indicate perimenopause.

4.  Polycystic ovaries (PCOS)pcos

Ovulation disorders in women can delay period. Medical condition like polycystic ovaries, which occurs due to high androgens, may block ovulation and result in infertility.

Though women may have irregular heavy or light period, it’s possible your missed period negative pregnancy test and white discharge is due to PCOS.

Symptoms of polycystic ovaries are

  • Inability to conceive
  • Excessive weight gain or obesity
  • Abnormal distribution of hair that resembles males pattern
  • Thinning of hair
  • Spotting in between your periods
  • Acne

5.  You are unlucky, and menopause is starting very early

Remember that most women stop having period at 51 years. However, some women may start menopause very early. This is referred to as premature ovarian failure and may cause absent period, dry vagina and signs of menopause.

6.  Hypothalamus dysfunction

The hypothalamus is a vital center that controls ovarian function.

Through hormones released – GnRH, the hypothalamus acts on both the pituitary and ovaries to make your period come when due.

Sometimes, the regular release of this hormone may be affected, resulting in a missed period.

Conditions that may lead to hypothalamus dysfunction are

  • Emotion stress
  • Sleepless nights
  • Physical stress
  • Long travels
  • Eating problems

7.  Ectopic pregnancy

Ectopic pregnancy, which is also called tubal pregnancy, occurs because fertilized ovum is not implanted within the body of the uterus. It could be in other parts of the uterus like the fallopian tube and rare cases in the abdomen.

If you had severe abdominal pain and missed a period, it could suggest tubal pregnancy.

Other ways you could tell if it’s ectopic are

  • Dizziness and feeling very weak
  • Fainting or loss of consciousness
  • Low blood pressure
  • Repeat symptoms after a previous ectopic pregnancy
  • Months or years of neglecting vaginal infections without treatment

Don’t just stare; ectopic pregnancy could result in grave consequences if not managed quickly. It’s vital your health care provider know your symptoms as early as possible.

8.  You’re on or stopped taking contraceptive pills recently

If you are on active pills for more than 21 days, it is very likely your period will not come when due. These pills, while blocking ovulation, may also stop or delay your period. However, it may depend on the type of pills you’re taking.

Also, women that stopped pills may have an absent period for some time. This does not mean you’re pregnant and occurs because your body is trying to adjust.

9.  You took emergency contraceptionPostinor pills after morning early periods

Emergency contraception means drugs you’ve taken immediately after intercourse to prevent getting pregnant.

After morning pills may disrupt your normal menstrual cycle and result in delayed ovulation and menstruation.

Don’t panic, it’s normal for most women and your period will return in a few days.

    Hi my name is Jenn and I’m type one diabetic and my numbers have been high from a skin infection as well as stress. I’m 53 days late on my most 28 day period. And it’s pretty reg. I am kinda freaking out. I’ve done two test at home. And both came out neg. Sorry forgot to mention my last period was the 9th of may. And im having discharge and no symptoms. Any suggestions or input anything will help.

    • Dr Dunn A. Reply

      I understand how you feel, but the truth is there may be something wrong. If your period is late 53 days now, there are possible causes, though it’s important you inform your doctor. If your hormones dip or are secreted abnormally during polycystic ovaries, premature ovarian failure, and hormone imbalance it possible this could happen.

      You should talk to your doctor, or try a blood pregnancy test in a clinic near you.

      Lastly, your period may be affected by hypertension, diabetes in the long term.

  • Carmen Reply

    My name is Carmen, I’m about to be 22 in a couple months. I haven’t gotten my period from last month and still haven’t. I used to take plan b pills more than normal but recently stopped back in April. However when I got my period in at the end of May it was very light. Then June came and I never got my period. I do have a discharge and I noticed I have started to break out on my face a little bit. I’m concerned because I did have bv last month and took an antibiotic metronidazole for it but I still have the discharge. I am not pregnant and my period is now over 2 weeks late. I have made a Dr appt for next week but am very concerned. What could this be?? Please respond soon.

    • Dr Dunn A. Reply

      Hi Carmen, I’m sorry u are so tensed up. You said you are not pregnant? Did you run a pregnancy test? Bacterial vaginosis is common in women who douche, use vaginal sprays or perfumes. Also, if you’ve used vaginal soaps to clean deep inside, it could predispose you to bv. However, your discharge may be concerning and may indicate pregnancy. If it’s not smelling fishy and now much more than what it used to be, it is likely pregnancy.

      You should test it out; Let me know if it’s negative or positive.

        Hi Dr Dunn,

        My name is Chandra. My monthly is usually very regular every month on the 15th. The odd time it has been a day early. I had routine blood work done on Oct 30th and pregnancy was negative. However it is now Nov 23rd and I am 8 days late which is very abnormal for me. (My bf and I are active but usually careful) I’ve taken 2 hpt on the 5th and 6th day of my missed period but both were negative. I’ve been extremely tired, Moody, my breasts are also sore and I have light cramping with white discharge. When I was pregnant with my son it took 3 hpt for me to get a faint positive.( I now have a very healthy beautiful 3 1/2 yr old) please help!

    • Dr Dunn A. Reply

      It’s unlikely your pregnancy will show in ultrasound if it done very early. On the other hand, you’re more likely to be pregnant after a faint pregnancy test. Kindly get a blood pregnancy test to confirm. Let me know if there are other issues.

    I have Pcod from many years. After marriage, I started getting regular periods. But now suddenly after 6 months, I have a delayed period with lots and lot of whitish discharge. Weight has gained rapidly. We were planning to try to have a baby maybe in a year’s time. Will I be able to conceive because of Pcod? What is the best treatment? I have 27 years and I hope I have not started on my menopause already. Please advice.

    • Dr Dunn A. Reply

      PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease) decreases fertility and delays period. You should let your doctor know. These days there are many options to help. Metformin tablets, combined oral pill or even clomiphene will help boost fertility. Talk to your doctor.

  • Joanna Ramirez Reply

    My situation has been worrying me. I saw my GYN about it and doesn’t really seem like she knew what was going on after I explained to her. I’ve been trying to conceive. I had intercourse on my period and during my fertilized week and ovulation day. My last period was on May 21st. I bled for a day in half in June and that was it. I took 3 pregnancy test and they were all negative. I have symptoms of pregnancy but I guess I’m not pregnant. I took a pregnancy test at the Dr visit and it was still negative. I was ordered to take various blood test though. I’m not sure what’s going on with my body. I have pelvic cramps. It’s odd that I had intercourse on the days I’m most likely to get pregnant for months and ask afraid this may be premature menopause and I’m only 32

    Hi! Based on my calculation I’m 8 days delayed from my period. My last period is June 10 up to the 13/14. And I had unprotected intercourse 25th of June. I am really worried so I took 2 pregnancy test the 1st one is last July 10th and the 2nd one is July 14th they all came negative. I’m having white discharge and it makes my private part itchy also my lower tummy sometimes ache like what you feel when your period is about to come. These past months my period is regular if ever, I only missed my period for a few days or a week the most. I don’t know if its because I’m stressing about this so so much because that I don’t get enough sleep anymore and I’m having massive hair fall. What should I do? Do I need to do a retest? Or im just really stressing out that’s why my period is late? Pls, help!

      I am going through the exact same problem! Have taken two pregnancy tests and the results were negative each time. I’m 13 days late, feeling cramps in my tummy area and my vaginal area is getting slightly itchy. But then, I’ve had a very stressful last month, which had also affected my eating and sleeping patterns. Could it just be delayed because of stress?

  • Sarah Reply

    Hi, I’m currently running ten days late on my period. My SO and I did have unprotected intercourse, so it is possible that I could be pregnant. I have taken five at home pregnancy tests throughout the past ten days and all have turned up negative. Usually, I’d assume I’m not pregnant and maybe this is stress related and I’m skipping a period or whatever, but I’ve noticed especially in the last few days other symptoms that point to being pregnant. My other symptoms are tender breasts, cramping (but not like usually menstrual cramps, more like I can feel and am totally conscious of my lower abdomen, it feels more like a slight pressure right below my belly button), really bloated, slightly nauseous and within the last two days I have found very thick milky discharge in my underwear. I took a test this morning and it came up negative. I have no idea what I should do, if me worrying about being pregnant is creating these symptoms and delaying my period further, or if I’m actually pregnant. Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have a schedule pap smear test in august but should I stop it and take another pregnancy test just to be sure I am negative or positive? or am i pregnant with these symptoms?

  • jia Reply

    Hi. Is it possible that I’m pregnant if I had unprotected intercourse BUT my bf didn’t “released his sperms” inside me? this may sound severely stupid but I’m really starting to get worried now. I missed my period for about 2-3 weeks now and the common symptoms of early pregnancy I’ve researched about aren’t exactly happening to me. I don’t experience swollen breasts (though there is a little-inflamed part in my nipple that is a bit sensitive), I don’t experience morning sickness (tho I easily gag), etc. I do have mood swings and white discharge but I usually experience that before I get my period it’s just that it’s taking too long rn and I’m worried. I haven’t taken any pt yet because I’m scared so I hope you can help me and reply to me as soon as possible.

    • Dr Dunn A. Reply

      Hi Jia, Sorry you are worried. But the truth is 2 weeks late period would most likely mean pregnancy. You had intercourse, and provided you did not use protection or are on pills, it’s likely you will be pregnant. No symptoms? Yes, some women will react differently to hormones and may not even show pregnancy signs at 5 weeks

      Use a pregnancy test ASAP. If you are negative, then read this guide.

I’m currently on day 12 after the date my cycle should have started and I’m experiencing extreme fatigue (even after sleeping all night), some mild nauseousness and food aversions, severe breast tenderness, and bloating (mostly in my lower abdomen). I have had some minor cramping in my lower abdomen, but nothing like I usually get. I have had one positive pregnancy test, then the tests I’ve taken since have been negative.

    Hi. I am a mother of 1 child. My period ended July 4th.. Then July 10th I started again until the 28th!! I was bleeding so bad! Went to hospital but they were no help. I was leaving a marriage and into a new relationship and moved a hr away. Before all of this I got a uti that went into a kidney infection then a yeast infection. I was on a heavy antibiotics that killed my stomach so I had to stop taking Metformin for Insulin Resistance and PCOS.. SO… I did research and realized my hormones were out of wack and that’s y I was non stop bleeding heavily.. I started taking Metformin asap and it slowly went away. Ended on July 28th.. Now I’m on 30 days from the end of that wonderful experience but my actual last period ended July 4th. I have been experiences White thick (occasionally even sticky) or very milky discharge. Prob a week and a half now. I have been bloated. Cramps kicked in about 1-2 days before my period should’ve started back and the cramps are still there. I’m either very hungry and can eat or if I’m hungry I can barely eat or it just doesn’t taste well at all! I get sick feeling a lot but I am not a puker (last preg I only felt sick a lil and never threw up once the whole pregnancy) Pretty much have all symptoms except implantation bleeding (I didn’t have for my 1st child either) My stomach/intestines are going crazy! I feel like I’m gonna start my period any min for a few days now but just the white discharge. I have been taking tests like crazy now and all negative. I really feel that I am pregnant but so unsure since the whole hormonal imbalance last month! I would love to get an expert opinion. I’m gonna retest in a few days (fingers crossed!) but my bf bday is in a couple days n that would be a great surprise!! Thanks in advance for any help on calming these damn nerves!

    Hi Dr Dunn A.
    I had unprotected s*x 4 times in 1 night on day 8 of my normally 28-day cycle and 2 days later I took the plan b pill. Exactly a week before my period was due I had a very unusual bleed, it was more light pink discharge as though a bit of blood was mixed in and it was quite thick like egg white. This was very light and lasted 2 days. 3 days later I took a pregnancy test which came back positive. I was shocked and have taken more since to double check but every other one has come back negative. My boobs were really sore but for the last week not so much. I am now 6 days late, having quite a bit of milky white discharge (have been for about 2-3 weeks), cramps on and off for about the same time and took another test today which came back negative. I’m not sure what to think. Could the positive test have been a dodgy test? It was a cheap one but since I’ve tried really good ones and digital ones, all negative. I thought maybe a chemical pregnancy but not sure with no bleed and the discharge hasn’t changed. Any thoughts would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you in advance

    Hey Dr Dunn, my period late now for 11days now and inbetween I had light spotting for 2 days and after the spotting i had cramps in my left side of my stomach for a day and after the cramps I had back ache for half a day and after the back ache I had like a milky discharge and slight head ache now and then so I done a pregnancy test and it came out negative.

    • Dr. Dunn A. Reply

      If you are not pregnant after a test, wait for another week and test again. While you are worried you could be pregnant, don’t be fast to conclude. late ovulation, which means your ovulation is delayed for a few days, may cause these symptoms ( Delayed period, white discharge, cramps on one side of your tummy, and back pain).

      Retest again. Though, if you’ve had unprotected sexual intercourse, then it could be pregnancy.

    Hi I’m 33 and was sterilised 5 years ago I have always had nightmare periods, all been overly heavy. I’ve tried many different things to reduce bleeding, not a great deal has helped unfortunately. I was recently taking utovlan (northisterone) which in the past eventually helps regulate my periods! However, I stopped taking them on the 23rd of August obviously expecting my period 2/3 days later and …. nothing! So it’s been almost 4 weeks now baring in mind I am sterilised, I have done 4 test and the doctor has done one too! ALL NEGATIVE! I now have a bit of a dull like pregnancy ache in my lower back, I’m experiencing more than I’d say was usual white discharge, my moods are out of this world at times and last night I had a bit of lower kind of groin area discomfort! I’m worrying myself a little bit and google isn’t the best way to search symptoms but I am a bit concerned! Doctor just said enjoy not having a period for now and come bk if no sign in a month!

    Hi Dr A, I had unprotected sex in July and missed my period in August, (I didn’t and haven’t taken any pills, I took emergency contraceptive pills earlier in July but not after this mid July sex) I tested negative thrice and had sharp pains in my upper right tummy then it moved to the left side. I’ve had headaches and one night my vagina itched so bad I kept rubbing it and by morning it was swollen, it went down though.
    I have white creamy discharge and waist/lower back pain.
    I eat normal, no dizzy spells, no nausea, the pains have reduced.
    I had protected s*x two days ago and vagina was itchy afterward. I’m worried, is it an infection?

    negative result. I don’t know whats happening
    need help

      A faint line seems like pregnancy. TAke your test in the morning after waiting for 7 days after delayed period.

          If you are late for 6 days, take a test. Don’t panic yet, It may not be pregnancy.

            hi i’m already 2 weeks late with 4 negative HPT. am i pregnant or not? only symptom is my breasts have grown and nipple sensitivity.

            When is the last time you took a test?

            This morning and it was negative. That was my 5th one now

    Hi, Dr. Dunn, I had unprotected s*x last week and I took p2 that same day. But my period is 5 days late and I’ve been experiencing menstrual cramps, lower back ache, sore nipples and white discharge. I took a test 2 days ago but it tested negative. Pls, what’s wrong!

    • Dr. Dunn A. Reply

      Hi, Trendy,

      There is no reason to panic, Postinor delays period for days to weeks. In few days time period will return. Its possible to have cramps and back pain while ovulating. So, it’s not always a sign of pregnancy.

      P2 delays ovulation, so Don’t worry much.

        Dr dun pleasereply. Already took a blood test and it was negative. Us this accurate?

    My last cycle was August 26 I had sex on the 1st unprotected I took the bill hours later but had unprotected sex on the 15th my cycle was due on the 22 and on the 24th i took a test neg I’ve taken several since then including today and they have all been negative.What are your thoughts?

    • Dr. Dunn A. Reply

      You are just 2 days late, be patient. Pills you’ve taken P2 can cause late period while you’re not pregnant.

  • Melinda Reply

    My name is Melinda and I haven’t had a regular period since October. November was not normal. Some spotting for less than a day. I didn’t get mine for December and still haven’t gotten it for January. I took 2 PG test in December and 1 last week. All negative. Earlier this week I took a blood tear and it was negative as well. I have been pregnant before a couple of years ago….which caught me by surprise. I have had similar symptoms as I did when I was pregnant before. Fatigue, frequent bowel movements, mood swings, discharge, dizziness. They did a test for thyroid problems but it came back normal. Could I still be pregnant? If yes what do I need to do? And if not , what could it be? Please help!

  • Sam Reply

    Hi, I’m 35years of age and was on birth control for pass 6years. I have been off the pill September last year and suddenly now my period is late 45days. I’ve taken 4 HPT all we’re negative. I’ve met my doctor and she told me highly unlikely to be pregnant. She prescribed to me NE pills to induce my period which I had to take for five days and told me that I will have my period in one to two days. It’s day three now and still nothing. She did advise me to take another HPT if there’s still no period after the second day which I did and the Test came out negative. The only thing that occurred whilst I took the NE pills is that I have watery discharge. Really confused what’s going on now. Also I did a blood test October last year and have no thyroid problems. Please advise

  • Ynn Reply

    Im Ynn,27.
    I last had my menstruation January 12-17 this year. For the last year,i had irregular periods. Starting from August i got my period on the day it should come. But my September period didn’t came. Here comes October i had an unsafe s*x,after my period. But it turned out negative since my period came on November 2-7,so basically i thought im not pregnant. I had an unsafe sex again on November 15,and i felt some pregnancy symptoms like dizziness,nausea and drowsiness. December 3 came i had little blood coming out like they told me as spotting for 2 straight days,and it stopped. I was thinking it was an implantation of blah..blah..but my period came later on Dec.11,and it was heavy and very red,felt different from my normal flow of blood,it lasted until Dec.16.Came January i had my period from 12-17,and we had an unsafe sex on the 17th. He intentionally popped inside coz he was sure i wont be pregnant coz he had undergo vasectomy. And it was followed with a couple popped in for atleast 3days from Jan.20, jan.24, and Jan.29. I was expecting my period to come around 2nd week of February. But i had another unsafe sex with my 2nd bf. So,he popped in 4x straight in one day,last Feb.10. And now,i made a home test thru pregnancy test kit,it showed negative. And just lastweek i went to a series of tests in the clinic and its all negative. I had a little pinkish and brownish spotting of 2 days last Feb14-15.I’ve been delayed for almost 2weeks. I have feeling of breast sore,saliva with a bit of mucus,heavy white/brownish discharge and smells a bit awful. And an itchy feeling in my private part down.A pain in my lower back sometimes. What are these im feeling for? What symptoms are these? Could it be that i am experiencing PCOS? Please leave me some reply. Thanks. Have a nice day!
