Brown Discharge then light pink spotting a week before period then no period after taking next choice.

I had unprotexted sex twice in one week. I used next choice twice 7 days apart (bad idea). The second time that I used it was a day after my original ovulation date. I had sex on the first day I was supposed to ovulate. Exactly 2 weeks later and 1 week before my period, I had a brown odorless discharge (not enough for a pantyliner) for 3 days then light pink spotting (only when i wipe) for two days. No other discharge at all. I was supposed to start my period 2 days ago but I havent seen it. Could I be pregnant???

Dear Anonymous,

Wait a week prior to testing for pregnancy. One of the side effects of next choice is a change in your period but if it is more than one week late, you should take a test.

Here's a post similar to yours: https://www.empowher.com/community/ask/late-period-after-using-next-choice

Best of luck,
