So I don't want to come to the conclusion that I'm pregnant...I'd rather look at the other alternatives. No I am not trying to conceive, but I also do not use any birth control other than condoms....plus we did "forget" to use a condom a few days after I stopped my normal period. I'm looking for any advice or ideas.
The first thing I'd like to mention is that I miscarried back in December 2010...and my menstrual cycle has been off. It's never been definite to begin with, but it's changed after the miscarriage. For the past few months I have spotted after and before every single period...especially after intercourse. So two days ago I started to spot brown/reddish discharge. I summed it up to be another spotting day after intercourse. However, just today 6/20/2011 I started to bleed. It's not dark red, but it's not pink either. I would describe the color more orange/red. It's not heavy enough to use a tampon or pad, but it has "filled up" a light day panty liner. Since the last panty liner it has gotten light...still the same color though. I have not had sex today either. Could this be something I should go and get checked out? Should I wait to see what happens? Could it be diet/stressed related? I did start a new job three weeks ago that requires me to lift 20-25 pound boxes, and I'm on my feet all day. I would like to know if this is a pregnancy symptom...however, tomorrow I will be getting an MRI for my back. I have some unidentified back pain, and I was bed ridden for a year and few months. Oh yeah, also I am 24 years old. I will be 25 in August. Cervical cancer runs in the family, but my pap in November came up clear. My mother did get cervical cancer at 23 though. Thanks in advance for the advice :).
