"I should be starting my period today"
 
My last period was on the 2nd of December and I should be starting any day now. I'm experiancing white gummy discharge. And according to my calculationsm, I should be starting about TODAY. Is it normal for me to be experiancing this?

don't panic! that's totally normal! i'm not sure of your age, but periods seem to get more regular as you get older. you have no worries with it not being exactly on time. if about a month (or maybe even two) goes by and you still haven't gotten it, you may want to call a doctor. my guess is you are just being paranoid. don't worry about it just yet. everything can effect the timing and space in between your periods: diet, exercise, stress and all kinds of things.

here's what i found about the discharge:

thick, white discharge is common at the beginning and end of your cycle. normal white discharge is not accompanied by itching. if itching is present, thick white discharge can indicate a yeast infection.

i wouldn't worry about that either. that's normal.

here's a site that will tell you more:
