Brown, Black, Period

Last month my period came very early. My boyfriend and I had sex twice after that period both times we used condoms and he pulled out. After we then water tested both of the condoms and there were no leaks or holes. I've had a pretty stressful month and then suddenly i realized that my period was close to 15 days late which freaked me out even more! there was a period of time where i felt like i was going to pms strong cramping, mood swings, migraines but still nothing! I took two pregnancy test one 10 days after sex and one 2 weeks after my missed period both came out negative. I went home for spring break and was relieved when I saw a little bit of blood when I wiped. but suddenly my period became really weird it came out almost black and really light compared to what it usually is. Today on day two its only slightly brown and coming out very slowly. I feel like this is my period but I don't know I type it into google and it instantly says pregnant, and it just freaks me out more. What is this and why is it so weird?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you had protected sex, it's unlikely you will be pregnant.  Stress can cause a hormone in our body to delay ovulation and menstrual cycle.  If you are still concerned you might need to see your OBGYN and explain what is happening.
