late period...then med to heavy bleeding

Hi. My period was four days late. I'm never usually late. I've been having mild cramping for a week now. And lower back pain. After being four days late I then started having more cramping and light brownissh discharge. Then later that day the flow was heavier and a brick red color. This is the third day now. Btw my bf and I have been having unprotected sex for over a month now. Any help. Thx

It sounds like you just had a late cycle. Regardless of how regular a female is it's very normal to have an off cycle or two. I assume you're trying to get pregnant?

If you're wanting a baby you need to time ovulation and have sex every other day leading up to ovulation and then 2 days after. If you have irregular cycles (or just want to pinpoint ovulation better) you can use OPK's, chart your BBT and/or observe cervical mucous.
