I had intercourse on the 11th of june and had a light period on the 16th of june only lasting a few days, a couple of weeks ago i started what i thought was my menstrual cycle but it was only brown when i wiped hardly anything on the pad, today 03.08.2014 i have been getting cramps and had a very small amount of blood on the tissue, could i be pregnant as never experienced this before, thanks in advance for your advice..

Hi kizzie123!

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community! As women, our bodies are very complex and our cycles aren't always regular. If you are used to having a regular cycle, I am sure you are feeling very confused about the discharge and other symptoms you are noticing. 

You could be experiencing some irregular bleeding or spotting. You could also be experiencing implantation bleeding. Implantation is when the fertilized egg is attaching itself to your uterus resulting in pregnancy. Implantation bleeding is very light and lasts only a day or two. It is usually very light pink or brown.

Since you had sex on June 11th and your period was very light and now you are experiencing brown discharge and cramps, I would take a pregnancy test to confirm whether or not you are actually pregnant. 

If you had your last period on June 16th and haven't had a regular cycle since then, I would take a pregnancy test or blood test at your doctor's office. 

Here are some signs of early pregnancy from the EmpowHER community http://www.empowher.com/pregnancy/content/tender-breasts-morning-sickness-and-other-signs-early-pregnancy

kizzie123, please let me know if you are able to take a pregnancy test soon.
