Does a brownish discharge in missed periods indicate pregnancy in a person trying to conceive ?

Hi I m a 23 years old married female. Actually me and my husband is trying to start a family. This month I missed my period missed in a sense that 4 dayz before my period was due I saw a brownish discharge I though it was my period but it wasnt like the period I use to have before it continued for 7 dayz with few traces of blood at times I had unprotected sex during my ovulation day and day before that. I was wondering what it could be?

Dear Doctor, Is this the sign of pregnancy? My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 2 months. My period cycle is 27 days. I am always regular. Never in my life had I ever skipped a period or have it for longer than 28 days. My last period was on 10-Mar. Hubby and I intercoursed on 23-Mar (which was when my ovulation peaked). Today is 7-Apr. It s already 28 days and I have no period yet. But some strange things happened a few days ago. I kept having a feeling of period was coming. Something was flushing out. As soon as I went to the loo and checked, nothing came out except for some white discharge. Now, a few days have passed. That feeling of period has gone but there was no blood at all. I have taken HPT and went to doctor today. all negative. maybe it s too early to detect. Is my above situation a sign of pregnancy? Thanks for your help.

I have been tested and told that I could not conceive unless I tried Invitro. I have been having symptoms ofbrown discharge, missed period, bloating, nauseous, etc. I thought it maybe a cyst (I have had fibroid and cyst removal in the past). My doctor told me to take a pregnancy test...I took 4 all positive. I am not convinced that I am pregnant. Can it be ectopic? Hypothyroid disorder? Antidepressants causing the positive result?
