Unusual cramping a week before expected period, pregnant?

My husband's condom broke one the 14th day of my cycle, march 8, 2012 ( I have a 28/29 day cycle) and in panic, I took plan B the next day (less than 24 hours later). So, I either ovulated that day or the next day. In the past when I have taken emergency contraception It has made me start my period within a week. Tomorrow is when my original period is/was supposed to come but since plan b can set back ovulation 5 days its possible I could be even later than 3-22-12. The cramping I have has been going on for around 5 days now with white discharge. I have ran to the bathroom a few times now with a tampon in hand thinking I started early but no. I took a urine test today-negative. The cramps have now turned into more a pressure feeling on my pelvic area. Anyone else experience this or have knowledge on this topic?

You could be having a bad reaction to the emergency contraceptive. If the discharge is not itchy, smelly or discolored, you need not worry much about an infection. You should see a doctor as they will know what is really going on.

Thanks for the response. I'm not worried about an infection as I don't think that's whats going on. My body has never reacted to E.C. like this before. I am worried the pressure/pain means I'm pregnant. We just financially are not ready for a child.
