Hello, I am a 23 year old female with two kids. One is 4 and the other is 1. My period is usually regular with maybe 2 or 3 days off. Only birth control used is condoms and we have been very careful with that. This month I did not get my period, I am now 2 weeks and 4 days late. I have taken two pregnancy tests and both are negative. I had a yeast infection about a month ago and got medication for it and now its back again. For the past week I have been spotting dark brown blood and have no symptoms of period . I feel great exept today I felt a little bit of soreness on my stomach. The spotting happens off and now and only visible when I wipe. Can someone help me please.

Irregular periods, (spotting, late, early and absent) is very normal and almost all women have this at times. It usually has to do with fluctuating hormones since we do not have these released at a perfectly even and steady rate. I would recommend waiting another month to see how things go. Period irregularities are rarely associated with anything serious, especially at your age.
Of course there is the possibility of pregnancy even with a negative test so if you are worried, repeat the test after a week.
