Does dark vaginal discharge indicate pregnancy?

Hi. Recently I have been having black stool and dark vaginal discharge. I just started to take iron pills this past Monday. Last week, I had unprotected sex but I am on the depo shot which ends next week. Should I be nervous that I am pregnant due to the dark vaginal discharge?

Hello ma'am and welcome.

The darkish color of the stool and vaginal discharge is clearly due to the iron tablets you are on. As long as you do not experience any associated symptoms that can indicate either pregnancy or an infection, you are perfectly safe. If you do experience any additional symptoms, please write back to me using our premium service and I will surely assist and guide you further. For now, you do not exhibit any symptoms of pregnancy.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
