I am a 21 year-old female and have been sexually active for six months. I was using the OrthoEvra patch from January to September, but have since stopped. I have only ever had one sexual partner, my husband and the same goes for him. I have had normal, regular periods since I was 13. My periods have been very predictable, even in the months after I stopped using birth control. This month, however, my period was a week early. It was unusually light- pink or brown discharge- and lasted for about seven days (last Wednesday to this Tuesday). In the past few days I have had lower back pain which, for me, usually corresponds with ovulation. Today I have noticed light vaginal bleeding again. I have taken a home pregnancy test and it was negative. What do you think? When should I see my doctor?
