Period bleeding

My period this month has been incredibly odd, first off, I'm taking birth control but I started my period 5 days early. I normally have awful cramps and bloating due to my endometriosis, and heavy bleeding that is dark red/black along with incredibly breast tenderness. This month it's been very light and bright pink/red and very sticky? Also, I've been lightly bleeding like this for 2 days now and usually by this Time my periods are very heavy, and now I'm barely even filling up my pad. I haven't had any cramping at all and my breast weren't awfully tender like they usually get? Also, my bf and I have unprotected sex. I'm just concerned with my bleeding and how I'm not having incredibly painful cramps. Please help me if you can, thank you

Hi Khelms, 

Welcome to EmpowHER. If you had unprotected sex, your chances for a pregnancy are higher.  Since you have Endometriosis that also can cause changes to your cycle. You might want to see a doctor and take a home pregnancy test. Hope this was helfpul?
