Re: new... advice needed
I am not saying that you are not pregnant - you very well could be - but it is a bit early yet to be experiencing any symptoms. Is it possible that you have a bit of a flu? As for his observations on your cervical mucous (discharge), it is normal for it to change consistency and scent throughout your cycle. My fiance tells me that especially the week before your period the scent changes quite a bit (he told me this right after we found I was pregnant with our first child together - he said the scent did NOT change, so he really knew I was pregnant even tho it was a few days before my period was expected).
There are some early pregnancy tests you can take. Some women get false negatives with these, but they also work for some.
Also, have you considered a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis? I strongly suggest going to Planned Parenthood. Because when you start birth control pills, you start it during your period, it is better to go BEFORE you expect to start. At the same time, they would be able to check for any infections.
Good luck, and I hope things turn out for you!
