Discharge: A pregnancy test is simple, cheap, and will quickly answer your question about pregnancy. Otherwise, brown mucus discharge may be normal or a sign of a uterine problem, cervical problem or even a vaginal infection. Either way, just see a doctor who can easily tell you what is going on.

Maybe: But unlikely if you had a regular period on 8-31-14. Since your periods are not regular to begin with, I would recommend just doing a urine pregnancy test - it it's negative, then don't worry.

It is possible: Pregnancy is always a possibility. You need to have a pregnancy test. If it is positive you need to be seen by a doctor for follow up (confirm intrauterine pregnancy and not ectopic pregnancy) if your are not attempting to conceive and are sexually active I advise you to consider a reliable birth control method and should be careful not to catch a sexually transmitted disease (std).

Check a preg test: Anytime your period is late, there is always the chanc eof pregnancy if you are sexually active. The 1st thing to do is check a pregnancy test. If it is positve, you shoudl se eyour obgyn for confirmation. If negtaive, there are many reasons for a period to be a little off and it generally is nothing weriosu or dangerous. If it persists over several months, a visit to your obgyn will be helpfuf.

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?

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?

Yes: Yes, you maybe pregnant, if not from this episode of unprotected sex, then from a prior instance. Also, if you've engaged in unprotected sex, then painful discharge could also be due to sexually transmitted diseases/infections. Easy way to determine if pregnant or not is to take home pregnancy test, available w/o prescription at most pharmacies - they're accurate as soon as you're late. Then c doc

I had anal sex with my husband on 8th day of my periods, he ejacuated in my anus twice. Insd of next periods I got only brown discharge. Am I pregnent?

I had anal sex with my husband on 8th day of my periods, he ejacuated in my anus twice. Insd of next periods I got only brown discharge. Am I pregnent?

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.

I frequently have unprotected sex and I'm on the birth control pill, I never take it on time. I have brown discharge in my knickers could I be pregnan?

I frequently have unprotected sex and I'm on the birth control pill, I never take it on time. I have brown discharge in my knickers could I be pregnan?

Yes: Regardless of the brown discharge, if you are not taking your pill correctly, not using condoms, and are having sex, then you are certainly at risk for pregnancy. Talk with your doctor about options for birth control that will be better for you.

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.

Does it mean your pregnant if you are having brown discharge?

Does it mean your pregnant if you are having brown discharge?

Hard to know: If a woman is having spotting at the time she normally gets a period, it is possible she is pregnant and that the bleeding is implantation bleeding. Check a pregnancy test to know. Usually we suspect pregnancy if a woman misses a period, and then has nausea or breast tenderness for instance.

What exactly does it mean if you have brown discharge coming out of vag?

Old blood: You need to correlate this discharge with your menstruation because if it is there all the time, then your doctor has to examine you thoroughly for other causes inside your uterus or vagina including early pregnancy.
