I'll lead you with some background information.
During the months of June and July I had unprotected sex, about 4 or 5 times. Ending towards the middle of July. In August, I had one incident, about a week ago, where the guy did not ***. We didn't really finish having sex, because I stopped it so it only last a few min.
On July 25th I got my period. It started off really light and light pink for about 2 days then finished off regular. Since I had some pregnancy symptoms (tender breasts, fatigue, mood swings, cramping, frequent urination) I took 2 tests, after my period just for some peace of mind.
They both came out negative, so I didn't think much about that anymore.
I continued having cramps though the rest of the time, still am now. They feel like menstrual cramps and they come and go, and sometimes I'll get like shooting pains in my groin, when I stand up fast or something like that. They don't stay long enough to hurt.
I expected my period yesterday (Im on a 25 day cycle) and it still hasn't come.
Last night at work, I felt cramps. Like period cramps. I expected my period had come.
I went to the bathroom and when I wiped I noticed a brown discharge. I thought it was the beginning of my period so I lined my underwear with tissues (I didnt have pads or tamps). I went to the bathroom every hour or so to check things out and each time I saw nothing on the tissues, I wiped and after the first hour there was nothing there. There was no need for the tissues.
I took them out and still no period. No brown discharge either.
I'm having weird symptoms like the cramps, lower back pain, and a headache that hasn't gone for 2 days (I get migraines often though). I also, have very sensitive nipples and feel bloated for some reason.
My question is should I re-test? I mean the last tests I did were negative, so could they have been wrong?
Is brown discharge instead of a period, a sign of early pregnancy?
It could have been brown spotting, but it was really only there when I wiped and only lasted a half hour or so..
It can't be implantation bleeding because that comes before a period, and this is around the time I would expect my period.
Any advice appreciated, thanks.
Btw, some extra details. I'm 20, and I'm usually very regular.
There was no smell or pain with the discharge.
Also, experienced some random nausea this morning before work. Just dry heaved a couple times.
