Doctor

A:   Thank you for your query.
You have not mentioned about your last menstrual cycle neither, of the expected menstrual cycle date. However the symptoms you have mentioned like the discharge and cramps in left lower abdomen look like ovulation symptoms, if they were symptoms of ovulation and you had unprotected sex then the chances of pregnancy is more. If it is passed 7 days than your expected date of menstrual cycle go for a home pregnancy test. It is also advisable to see the doctor if you are already on medication for pseudotumor cerebri and now it is causing to flare up.
