If you think you could be pregnant, then the only way to know is to take a pregnancy test.
As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a fertile woman is having a missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period.
There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period or have spotting such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give your doctor or your ob/gyne a call. Good luck! ...Read more

IUD:unusual period: At your age, and with a history of regular periods, it is unusual to have a change in menstrual flow. The "thin, watery" discharge may indicate possible pregnancy, since even with an IUD, a change in its position could allow pregnancy to occur. Wait one week and if still no "normal period" for you occurs, get a serum HCG test from your gyn provider to be certain about pregnancy. ...Read more
