Hi Doctor, My ovulation day (according to period tracker app) is 5th Feb 2017. On that very night, I had sex with my bf but the condom broke. I checked and his cum was in me. Only 10 hours later, I took postinor. What s the chances of me getting pregnant, taking in consideration that I m ovulating? I am still very worried that I ll be pregnant. Does ovulation day means that my eggs are already released? If that s the case, by taking postinor, will it reverse the process and prevent the eggs from going down the Fallopian tube to meet the sperms?

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
