My last period was may 17th and my cycle is usually 27/28 days. My fiance and i aren't really trying to conceive, but we're not preventing it either. We had sex on the 27th then again on the night of the 29th/morning of the 30th and again on the night of the 30th/morning of the 31st. Then on the 31st there was very little spotting, like only when i wiped. We then had sex on the night of june 6th/morning of the 7th. Same thing, very little spotting. Now its a few days before my expected period and there is a very slight brown mucus(more mucus than brown) discharge when i wipe. I'm used to a brown discharge before my period, but not all the spotting. HMMMM???

If you got your period, then you're not pregnant.

If you are still in doubt take a pregnancy test.

Well when i woke up the morning of 6/12 my period started (earlier than expected) but it only was half as long as usual. IDK... since then all sorts of things:
-going to the bathroom all the time
- my nipples are puffy and super tender and my montgomery glands are huge(& i swear they've multiplied)
-intense headaches
-nausea and food that i normally like is making me sick
-yesterday (all day and still) it feels like the muscles in my lower abdomen are pulling/stretching

Hi linny82

Thanks for your post.

If you are having unprotected sex, especially mid-cycle, then pregnancy is always possible. Your spotting may be a sign your period is coming or even could be implantation bleeding, meaning you are pregnant.

The only way to find out is to take a pregnancy test if your period doesn't arrive in a few days.

Good luck!
