Brown discharge before period
Ever since going off the pill I keep getting thick brown discharge for about 5 days before my period, then I get my normal heavy flow for about 3 days.  I never used to get this brown discharge before, so I'm not sure what's causing it.  I've been off the pill now for about 1 year.  
However, this month (right now) I've had the brown discharge for 8 days, no regular heavy bleeding.  
Is this a sign of pregnancy or is my body STILL making changes from being on the pill.  FYI...I was only on the pill for about 1 year, before that I was on the depo shot.
Adding to this, my partner and I had sex the day this brown discharge started...since I've not gotten my heavy flow yet, could this be a sign that I'm pregnant?  I haven't taken an at home test yet as I don't want to jump to conclusions.  Just looking for some advise before I take the test and/or go to my ob/gyn.
Thanks!

sweety, i think the only thing you can do is take a test to find out, i dont know why it would last this long as you say it's not normal to last this long.

That Depo screwed me up, at least I think so.  When I went off of it I had to go on the pill because by cycle was sooooo screwed up...I would bleed for 3 weeks at a time.  The pill didn't seem to help either...so I'm off everything all together until things start getting back to normal.

We'll me and my boyfriend have intercourse quite often, and we never use a condom but I am on the pill. The last time we had sex was either Tuesday/Wednesday, Thursday I went for a wee and noticed when I wiped there was brown stuff on the tissue and it hasn't stopped now Sunday. As I'm a worrier I'm worried! I've been having tummy niggles for about 3 weeks and sickness, people are also pointing out I'm putting a bit of weight on.I googled it and it said I'm either pregnant or have miss carried but I don't know what to do I'm only young and my mother doesn't know please someone help me!!
