Check preg test: As I am sure you know the first step is to take a home pregnancy test. It is common for someone to have an irregular period occasionally. This usually self corrects over the next few cycles. If you continue to be irregular or continue to have excessive bleeding schedule a visit with an obgyn to discuss options for cycle control.

Not likely.: If you remain concerned repeat a home urine pregnancy test in a few days - but it sounds like you are not pregnant at this time. See your gynecologist for additional advice and evaluation/management. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and best of luck!

I'm on birth control and missed one pill. Boyfriend put it in 10 seconds and never came inside. Brown spotting 4 days before period. Pregnant?

Can't rule it out: Its not impossible as even with perfect use the pill is only about 97% effective and most men produce pre cum well before ejaculation which may well have 20 million or more sperm. To be safe check a pregnancy test and consider using a condom back up.

Little Nausea, Lightheaded, Spotting After "Period" Brownish, Pregnant?

Hard to guess: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms.
