back ache

Hi, my period is 3days late. Now I am experiencing lower back pain, which is really hurting me especially when I'm walking. I had a miscarriage in June of this year.I'm also experiencing brown discharge. I'm not sure if I'm pregnant because I had one postive test and three negative tests last month. If it is my period, please can you tell my why my back is hurting me so much. I never experienced lower back pains when I'm on my period. Can it be another miscarriage?

Hello miss m,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern of lower back pain, late period, and brown vaginal discharge.

Miss m, have you had unprotected sexual intercourse since your last period?

Ordinarily, I would advise waiting a few more days, and repeating a home pregnancy test. An early response test can be taken as early as five days before your period is expected to start.

However, with your history of a miscarriage, I strongly suggest you contact your gynecologist/obstetrician.

Pain or cramping in your lower back and abdomen and vaginal spotting or bleeding are two signs of a miscarriage.
