Brown & Pink spotting 1 week before period, on birth control, could I be pregnant?
I am 21 years old and currently on the birth control pill Yaz and have been for almost a year now. Never have had any problems or spotting or anything with it. I have not missed any pills, but I don't take it at exactly the same time every day. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend about 5 weeks ago, but for the past week or so I have had moderate spotting changing from pinkish red to brown back to pink. My period last month (starting on 3/16) was perfectly normal. I also have had incredibly sore breasts for the past week, slight cramping,severe lower back pain, fatigue, headaches and a slight weight gain. My period isn't due for another 4 days but I took an early detection pregnancy test and it came back negative. Could I possibly be pregnant and the birth control is making it hard to realize this? I know some birth control have symptoms similar to pregnancy and some women don't know if they are pregnant until months later, but I figured some other insight wouldn't hurt, thanks!
