Patient : Hi so I've been on birth control for a month. I started it two days after my period ended. I've used it consistently and on time. I recently had sex with my bf on Saturday and also on Tuesday. On both occasions I didn't use a condom. And it's the week my period is supposed to start. I'm due to start it today. But lately after I had sex I've been getting clear stretchy discharge. I'm really scared. Could my birth control delay my period? I'm not late yet. But I'm really paranoid. I also haven't had any period symptoms like I usually do which include tender breasts and cramping. Just the discharge.
