I had this slight feeling I could be pregnant. I tested 3 days before my period was due and received a positive result on different tests. Today my period is due and I am having brown discharge. It is not very heavy, as I have been wearing the same pad all day and it's very little on the pad. However, when I wipe it is tinged with a little red. Also, when I look down in to the toilet, I can see particles (if that makes sense) Could this be the first signs of a MC?

I've been on the contraceptive pill for like over 3 years now... My period was basically due 26th Feb, but I had some bleeding on the evening of 23rd Feb (we had lots and lots of sex on 22nd obviously). The bleeding only lasted a few hours, then my period didn't begin until 5th March. I bled normally (quite heavily as usual) and used the normal night time ultra pads for a few days coz my periods normally last 5-7/8 days. The bleeding stopped on 10th Feb but then I had spotting/browny pinky discharge from 12th Feb onward to 27th March where I was able to just use panty liners, even though I was still taking the pill each day. I also experienced headaches, fatigue (I would fall asleep several times in the day), constipation, diarrhoea, mild tummy aches, trapped wind, losing of appetite AND sometimes an appetite enough for queen and country, which are some pregnancy symptoms so I was getting worried! My next period was due 26th March. I then bled extremely heavy on Tuesday 28th March. Like I bled through my night time pad, a pair of knickers and a pair of cycling shorts altogether within a few hours.... But I still didn't need the use of any pain killers or heat pads even though I have stocked up as my periods are usually a killer... I go through like 6-8 pain killers a day plus 2 heat pads for the first 2 or 3 days! But anyway by Wednesday 29th, my period was next to nothing. And my period was completely finished by Thursday 30th March. This is the first time I have ever experienced a period or spotting like this in my life.
