Was on carbamazepine, stopped a week before having sex. Spotting, lower back ache, increased dischrage. Pregnant ?

Hi, I am nineteen. I was on carbamazepine and stopped taking it a week before having sex with my partner (25th). It was 2 weeks after my period had started, but only a day after i stopped bleeding (2 weeks of bleeding is not out of the ordinary for me). I am on the pill so we thought that it wouldnt still be affected my the carbamazepine. A week after I had some spotting, it was pink and I had no pains. It lasted 3 days. I was due my period on the 8th, and had another light (but slightly heavier) bleed for 4 days on the 11th. It has now been over 3 weeks and all pregnancy tests are negative. But, my belly feels tender to touch, I have constant dull aches in my lower back, and increased discharge (white and without itching or burning) and weird sensations in my stomach also. I am going through the process of being diagnosed with endo, and for the last 5 years, the ONLY time I have gone longer than a few days without any agonsing pains was when I was pregnant. Bit worried..

Thanks for writing to us.
Since all your pregnancy tests are negative, the pregnancy is ruled out. The mild spotting and bleeding that you are having after the periods is due to a hormonal disturbance. This is likely to subside on its own in next few days.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
