Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help you
User :   hi there
User :   I have been on birth control for almost a year I am 18 and my period started about a day later than usual and when it did it was extremely light brown and has gotten heavier since, but is still brown with only a little bit of red. I usually have really heavy periods that last about 4-5 days. This "period" is still much lighter than my usual ones and it only looks heavy-ish when I wipe. I had unprotected sex last month the day before I was supposed to start my birth control again. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it said Not Pregnant. Does it still sound like I am?
