Symptoms:  Period, lower belly cramps and clear water like discharge
Doctor

A:   Thank you for your query.
If your period was on time and you had normal flow as per your previous menstrual cycle pattern then probably you need not worry. But it is always advisable that when you miss the daily birth control pills, to use extra modes of contraception like morning after pills or vaginal pills which have spermicidal effect before sex, or a condom. Prevention of pregnancy is always better than to opt for an abortion.
It is advised that you opt for a pregnancy test 7 10 days later to your period or what you say, are thinking as a period. This just to rule out chances of a possible conception.
Hope that answers your query.
Have a good day.
