Possible pregnancy

How do I know if my girlfriend is pregnant? All I know is that we had sex about 10 days ago, she had her discharge a week ago with it being the normal white color, yesterday she had a temporary period and it was light pink but now it's gone, and it came about 4 days to a week early.
  • Complaint duration: 2 days

Urine Pregnancy tests are sensitive to 50 miu of HCG the hormone of pregnancy. That discharge you described can be implantation bleeding the baby implanting on the uterine wall. Go get a First Response Pregnancy test they detect pregnancy the earliest. Or go and see your physician for an evaluation to determine if she is pregnant.
WAit a few weeks and then have her take a pregnancy test. Her slight discharge can occur even with a pregnancy. IT is up to your girlfriend to tell you when she finds out.
If you used 2 forms of contraceptive (foam and condoms, etc) it is unlikely. Otherwise it is unlikely a test will be confirmatory until at least 2 week, that is after the next missed menstral period. If positive she can the see her doctor for confirmation, if negative repeat in 1 week.
The best way is a pregnancy test they are very sensitive even very early , you should use protection if you want to avoid a pregnancy.
Hi there. First of all, whenever pregnancy is even possible, a woman should treat her body as if she is pregnant. That means not taking any recreational drugs or drinking alcohol, quitting if she smokes cigarettes, checking with her doctor about the safety of prescription medications she may taking, and starting prenatal vitamins, or .4 mg of folic acid a day, right away -any woman who might get pregnant whether she's planning it or not, should be on a folic acid containing supplement to prevent birth defects. Once you've taken care of these important safety issues, you can take a deep breath and wait until the normal time for her period to start. If still no period, take an over-the-counter pregnancy test. These are very reliable. If negative, you can repeat the test in another week or two, but in the meantime she keeps treating your body as if pregnant. If her period still does not return, she'll need to see her doctor to find out why. I hope this helps a little bit.
