I think it's your period, just lighter than normal, for whatever reason. You can test for pregnancy to confirm but it sounds like your period. That's about all we can tell you! You're probably fine!

Hi beenuts

It sounds like your period is starting, it's not uncommon for a period to start off as brown or very light pink in color.

Hi Anon

Your period may be delayed as a side effect of taking emergency contraception. This is fairly common. If your tests are negative then you are probably not pregnant. Your period will likely come along shortly - you'll just have to wait a while. Try not to worry!
