Planning pregnancy, started bleeding but the color is brown. Is it periods?

I had my period on the following days for the last 5 months: 12/11/2012, 13/12/2012, 13/01/2013, 11/02/2013. I am trying to fall pregnant. We had intercourse before my ovulation date and on ovulation, but I started bleeding on 12/03/2013. I am a bit confused as I thought I would definitely be pregnant. The blood changed during the day to a dark brown discharge . Today I still have the brown discharge. Had very light cramping on the first day and did a hpt , but it showed negative result. Is this just my period I m having? Did I maybe do the test too soon?

Thanks for writing to us.
The bleeding that you are having is likely to be due to your period itself. Since the urine test for pregnancy is negative, pregnancy is unlikely. You can be more sure by getting a blood test for serum HCG levels done.
