hi, i'm 18 years old and sexually active. my partner and i ALWAYS use a condom and check in the end to make sure its ok. i'm supposed to get my period sometime this week. today i got a light brown discharge, i thought it would become my period as the day progressed. but hasn't. also, yesterday me and my partner had sex [with a condom]. what is it? is it my period? please help
brown discharge usually does not indicate a period. It could very possibly be implantation bleeding, however, as your using a condom every time it is unlikely. But still possible. If your actual period doesn't come I suggest a HPT. I'm not saying your pregnant, but it is possible.
Im actually going through the same thing right now.
let me know how it goes!
i really hope it's my period. i mean the condoms we've used have been perfectly fine after using them. also, the thing is, i recently got ortho tri cyclen lo, i was supposed to take my first pill the first sunday after my period or if it's on sunday that day. so i dont know if it's my period then i should take it today.. god i wish i just knew the answer! :(
I have been having that brown discharge now for a week!
If this is my period....it came 5-6 days late.
Still no real period....
Sounds as though you may need an hpt to ease your mind....of course it is possible
to get pregnant while using protection, it is highly unlikely.
Hoping you get your answers sooner than later.
