Pink then brown bleeding that lasted for 2-3days after 5 days after my period means i'm pregnant?

Hard to tell...: A doctor can check to look for a medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of mucus discharge, of their periods, or a missed period on occasion (due to changes in hormones).

If i've been on birth control for over 6 months and take it correctly, and he pulls out, does it mean a delayed period means I am pregnant?

If i've been on birth control for over 6 months and take it correctly, and he pulls out,  does it mean a delayed period means I am pregnant?

Likely not: Do you mean birth control pills? When taken correctly, at the same time every day, the pill has a failure rate <1%. Withdrawal alone has a much higher failure rate, but the 2 methods together have a low rate of failure to prevent pregnancy. If, by a "delayed period" your mean, a missed period, it can occur due to the pill. Check a pregnancy test to be sure, and if negative, keep taking the pills. ...Read more

Most often is: You are right! you may have had a miscarriage that looks like a period that was late or different in color. Its usually not distinguishable. However, if you have a positive pregnancy test and if you bleed then, you can suspect miscarriage. In the setting of a negative pregnancy test, a cyclic bleeding every month is just your menstrual cycle. Best wishes Dr M ...Read more
