Pregnancy test?: It's always a good idea to take a pregnancy test if you have had unprotected sex and your period isn't normal. If the test is negative (and if your last unprotected sex was more than 14 days ago), then you can feel safe. Sometimes periods are late and irregular for no good reason. Sometimes it's stress, illness, travel, or weight changes. If it only happens occasionally, then I wouldn't worry. ...Read more

Is the brown discharge I've experienced a concern? I've had random spikes of pain in my pelvis on the right or left side. I've had clear and white discharge but tonight I had brown. No odor

Pelvic: Pelvic pain is common especially mid-cycle (about 2 weeks after your period). The discharge may be normal but this depends on your age and time in your menstrual cycle. This could be an indication of midcycle bleeding which is not normal if you are nearing menopause (about age 50). If you are cycling normally, i'd inform your gynecologist, but they will most likely just want to keep watching to see if it happens again. ...Read more
