Hi so I need a little bit of advice, I've been feeling sick in the tummy for about 2 weeks now, I gag when I brush my teeth, I have really bad head aches mainly at night time, weird dreams so I don't sleep well, took a test 1 day before my period was due it was negative then my period was a day late and it's never late sometimes early even, I use tampons it's only my first day but it's hasn't even soaked half Maybe close to a quarter of my tampon and usually I'm heavy at the start. I'm ttc so I'm a bit confused and it's not bright red like usual it's more light and brown

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to us. I can appreciate how confused you must feel right now.

Wait and see if the vaginal flow increases. If it does, then you are not pregnant.

If you spot for a day or two and the spotting stops , this could be implantation bleeding. In that case, repeat a pregnancy test, testing in the morning with the first urine of the day. Depending on the result, check in with your gynecologist, who can order a blood pregnancy test,which is more accurate.

Please keep us updated.
