Spotting & brown discharge but haven’t missed my period yet.

Hi, about 10 days before my period I had some spotting. It was dark brown but only lasted a few hours. Now 6 days before my period i’m having a light brown muscus that also just lasted one time. I’ve been very exhausted lately, loss of appetite, moody, and not many cramps. I have taken 5 pregnancy tests & all have turned out negative but it could still be too early. I take birth control religiously & have been for years. Could I be pregnant?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

It's very unlikely you are pregnant although it's too early to test. Testing in another couple of days is better.
You may be spotting due to the Pill and your body changing with time. People can have side effects from medication that start long after they first start taking it.
It's worth keeping track of your cycle for the next few months to see if this is a once-off so something that needs to be discussed with your doctor.
