Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Chances of pregnancy are low as she has taken emergency contraceptive but it cant be completely ruled out . Do a urine pregnancy test to confirm pregnancy. Consult a gynecologist for further management depending upon pregnancy test result. take care.

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?
