I'm 40 weeks and 2 days, lost my mucus plug 3 1/2 hrs ago, I was checked today and dialated to 2 cm, I am now having brown discharge for the last 3?

Difficult to do through here. Please contact/ consult ob/gyn urgently to sort out. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex about two weeks ago, I've been having really dark brown discharge with a little bit of blood and bad cramps could I be preganant?

Maybe but not fromit: If you only had anal sex and ejaculation into your anus on 8th day of your period you will not get pregnant. If healthy viable and mobile sperms were introduced into your cervix then or at other times, the risk of pregnancy would increase. A simple blood pregnancy betaHCG test will answer your question. ...Read more

Pink/brown discharge 5 days after unprotected sex with 99% positive no ejaculation on microlite contraceptive pill. Slight bloating/pain. Am I pregant?

Pink/brown discharge 5 days after unprotected sex with 99% positive no ejaculation on microlite contraceptive pill. Slight bloating/pain. Am I pregant?

Unlikely, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a withdrawal period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more
