Ill give a little details before explaining what I have. 2months ago in January I had sex with my boyfriend on the 21st and the condom broke so I took the morning after pill ... Then on the 25th I had sex again with my bf and broke again and so I went to go get a pill again. So 2 pills in a month. I had no side effects from the pills execpt for light spotting about a week later for about 2days(not alot of blood). I know the morning pill messes up your menstrual cycle so I had my period 2weeks late ( on Feb 26th). Ps: I usually get my period regular on every 28 to 30 day. So now for my story. After having a long talk with my bf we decided we wanted to start a family. So we started having unprotected sex since March 6th, march 11, 16, 17(ovulation days) and then on march 20 after intercourse like an hour later I started having very light pinkish in my undies, later on in the night it became more like blood. The day after (21st) it was bleeding but it didnt feel like a normal period. The blood was bright red but wasnt thick blood like a period it was lighter but alot of it(it was bleeding alot but wasnt thick). Then on the 22nd the 3rd day it was the same kind of bleeding and on the 23st and 24th it wasnt blood it turned into this really dark brown discharge for 2days. Today is the 25th and it looks like it stopped but i'm confused cause i'm supposed to be on my period around today or tomorrow, and what happened the past 4days didnt seem like my period and it was earlier. I also had cramps in my stomach and I usually dont have cramps when I have my period. My nose is blocked, I heard a kind of cold could be a early pregnancy symptom. So what do you think could this be a miscarriage? A early period that still hasnt got my normal menstrual cycle because of the morning pill? or a early pregnancy sign? I also never used birth control and other types of pill execpt the morning pill 2months ago. I havent got my period yet so I dont know if it will come or if I already had it from the bleeding I had for 4days

Hi KArry,

Thank you for your question. You will have to wait to see if you are pregnant. If you were bleeding, even though abnormal, this still could have been a period which means no pregnancy. When couples decide to have children, it often takes up to a year to get pregnant so don't get too disappointed if this time, the pregnancy does not take.

The best part is the you understand that ovulation time is the only time you will be able to conceive so keep going with this theory and enjoy the time trying to get pregnant! ;-)

Good luck,
