Have brownish discharge for about 4 days. What should I do for not geting pregnant ?

Hi, I have been having brownish discharge for about 4 days now, my period should have started about a week ago. I have taken a HPT which was negative, the brownish discharge started light and now it is much darker today then any other day. I have never missed a period since I first started when I was 12. I have not been on any birth control ever. The last time I had sex with my partner was on the 14th of Jan, we do not use condoms nor have we done anything that would insure me not getting pregnant . I can t get in to see my doctor for 3 weeks ( why I don t know ). I am hoping to start my period and would like to think that this is just a whole mix up and my body is just going through a change. Now if I don t start my period when should I take a another HPT in awaits for my doctors app? I know that there are many signs for this brownish discharge which could be I am about to start my period and it is just old blood , could be a sign a an inffection, could be a sign of inplantation bleeding . I just had a full STD screen done two months ago and everything is normal, I have only one sexual partner and I know he don t sleep around. There is no funny smell to this discharge nor do I have any burning while using the bathroom. I have been really tired lately started this week, I have been peeing a lot more then normal and drinking a lot more then what I am use to for my self, I have went through all the sgins of me starting my period but it has not come. Is there any answer to what might be going on? I am still going to see my doctor but as I stated I can t see her for 3 weeks. Please any help would do thank you. Oh I don t know if this would change anything but I am 26 years old and have never been pregnant, yes I do know that I am able to have children.

sometimes mild to minimal bleeding can cause brown discharge due to degardation of blood.

hoever if you are having prlonged and massive brown discharge it needs to be evaluated by a doctor.

i would advise you to take a pregnancy test in another week if you dont have your periods.

have healthy food in the mean time, pleanty of water and avoid stress.

sometimes during very early part of pregnancy the test may show negative results.

if the symptoms worsen call your emergency number,
please use condoms the next time.

i hope i have answered your query.

take care
