Hello, I am 66 years old and started having cramping and brownish discharge. Cramps feel just like a normal period when I was young. Discharge has been going on for about 24 hours now. Any answers as to why this would occur now. I have been on and HRT (prempro) for decades.

So I lost my virginity last week on Monday. We used a condom, however, my boyfriend was teasing me as he called it by acting like he wasn t going to put the condom on at first. His penis made contact with my vagina, not in it but right outside the the opening. Recently I ve been getting really bad cramps( to the point I feel like crying) and today we were messing around and he told me that I was bleeding. It wasn t red, it was a dark brown color. So I m just wondering if there s a chance I m pregnant? Or if these are just normal side effects. Please help I m scared. I m not wanting to talk to my mom about this yet because I m afraid she ll be upset.
