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....Gem

Hi thank you for your reply, I haven't had a full period since June no, a couple of weeks ago I thought I was going to start my period but it was just brown and only every now and then abit of red blood this lasted a few days, and yesterday I started with the brownish discharge again and occasionally there's red blood, nothing heavy just when I wipe.the only time I've had unprotected sex since was about 8-9 days ago

Hi Kizzie123,

Wait a bit longer. You can test for pregnancy any time after August 15.
Levels of hCG, which is a hormone produced only during pregnancy can be detected in urine about 14 days following conception.

Hello Gem,

Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about possibly being pregnant.

I need to clarify something. You had a short period in June but have not had a period since. Is that correct?

Gem, have you had unprotected sexual intercourse since the light period which began on June 16?

If yes is the answer to both questions, then there is a chance you could be pregnant. Take a home pregnancy test to determine if you are.
