The first day of my last period was August 26 and ended September 1st. My bigfeiend and I had unprotected sex on September 12 and I've been slightly cramping since then.. My app on my phone says I ovulates the 11th. I've been getting hot flashes for the last few days.. My app on my phone says I should have started my period sept 25. I have a brownish discharge when I wipe for the last 24 hours. Should I wait it out or take a test?

Hi Anon and thanks for your question.

The decision is really yours to make. There is a risk of pregnancy each time you have unprotected sex. The discharge you're seeing may indicate your period is on the way. If it would give you more peace of mind to take a pregnancy test then go ahead and do so. If you are comfortable waiting a bit longer then go ahead and do that. Hope that helps!
