Question: Pregnant or what could be wrong?


 archie_mx - Wed Sep 07, 2005 1:07 pm

Hello, I am 22 and I have always have irregular periods until I started college and living with other girls kinda helped me regulate myself. Back to school and living with girls again I missed my last period that should`ve been on the 22nd of august. I`ve had protected sex with my boyfriend (we always use condoms). IInstead of my period I only got a brown sticky discharge for about 4 days, but no period, I have not been feeling different health wise, and I`ve taken 3 pregnancy tests and all come out negative. I`m carrying on with my life normally, but changed my sleeping habits and theres a bit more stress, but I had this before and there was no problem with my period.
what do u think this could be?? Any iinput will be greatly appreciated...
I forgot to mention that my last 2 periods came in about 30 day cycle and that my bf has a low sperm count

User avatar Hello,
Brown discharge usually indicates "old blood". If this happens again you will need to be examined by a gynecologist to exclude the presence of disease, especially within the genital tract.

Best regards.
