Could it be pregnancy or something else?

Last month, I had some period-like bleeding on the 15 Sept/2016. I thought it was my period because I lost my calendar data about the previous period date (but usually it's at the end of the month). On the first 3 days (from 15-17) I had some brown clot like the old blood, which is normal because I usually have it for a day right before my period (3 days is unusually though). But then the next day I had some blood (just a bit) on my daily pad only in the morning and it's gone for the rest of the day. I did 3 times pregnancy test and they're all negative. So I thought it's just my period pattern changed.

After almost a month, I had some brown clot again (21 October) so I thought my period is coming. But when I put my pad on there's nothing. I only see some blood when I wipe. This situation continue including today (23 October). From last month till now there's no cramp or sore breast at all (I usually have these when I have my period).

Would it be pregnancy or something else?
P.S. I'm 22 years old and my bf and I usually have unprotected sex (trying to conceive).

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to our community with your concern.

This does not sound like a normal period for you. Since you have been having unprotected intercourse in the attempt to conceive, it is possible you are pregnant and this is spotting.

Consider reaching out to your gynecologist, who can order a blood pregnancy test, which is more accurate than a urine test. If you are indeed pregnant, it is the right time to start prenatal care and check out the brown spotting of the last two months.

Please keep us updated.
