Is it possible that you forgot to remove a tampon? It has been known to happen.

Just because you don't think it's there doesn't mean it's not. I'd go to an ER right away. Sometimes tampons get "lost" up there. And I dont mean like its floating around in your body but the string maybe be tucked somewhere and now you can't get it out. It's very dangerous if it is stuck because it can cause toxic shock syndrome.

Yes, if you think you might have a retained tampon and can't retrieve it from a squatting position, please to go an ER right away. TSS is nothing to fool around with.

Go to the DR. and don't have sex until you do, just in case it's a VD, good luck, but don't let anyone get lucky

Fairly often, women can actually experience abdominal or menstrual cramps after 6 days or after periods mostly when they are closer to ovulation. This is because the uterine wall usually sheds its endometrial lining and causes a surge of estrogen that causes thickening of the mucus to set up or prepare the body for ovulation.

It sounds like ovulation, especially if the discharge was clear, stretchy. Some women do ovulate earlier then mid cycle. Call the doctor to rule out problems.

Could be ovulation, like bubbles said. I get pretty bad cramps when I ovulate. What color is the discharge? Does it smell? If its a whitish yellowish color and gooey (bad way to word it, I know) and it doesn't smell, you're fine. Anything other than that you should probably contact your doctor.
