My boyfriend and I had protected sex using a condom about a week ago and as soon as we finished, there was a nagging voice in the back of my head that I was pregnant. Recently getting off my zoloft medication, my anxieties have gone through the roof to the point that my sleep schedule is completely thrown off and eating is strange. Neither of us can afford me being pregnant.
I had all the usual symptoms of getting my period and what not but still rather paranoid.
Here's the unusual part:
The first day of my period, though right on time, was entirely brown discharge. It was nowhere near spotting since it filled up two entire pads that day. After that, I started getting intense cramps and then it went back to the normal dark red color, only it was much heavier than my normal heavy days. It's only day 3 of my period and it's starting to lighten up quite a bit. I have taken a pregnancy test on day 2 and it gave an absolute negative.
Overall, the brown, then dark red heavy, short period is driving me up the wall and the stress is getting to me.
What do I do? What does it mean? Could I be pregnant? When/should I take the other test just to be sure?
