Hi I have a question. Okay so my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex last year 16-17December 2016, on the 21December I got my period so I decided to take the nur estrate injection ,but I still had my normal period after getting the shot a week after my period stopped , my boyfriend and I did it again on the 28the Dec. Two days after that I had a weird taste in my mouth, sensitive to smells, nausea etc Which only lasted for 3-4days. Ofcource we did it multiple times in January, didn't get my period, on the 4th of feb we did it again and on the 6th feb I got this brown sticky discharge and it's a week before my due date for my second shot which I missed btw Uh so I had these spottings, with pains on my right lower side and back pains yesterday my boyfriend and I decided to do it with the light spotting of course without protection and this morning when I got to work I suddenly have a white discharge with period pains, I'm so confused I really want to get pregnant ,I don't want to do a prego test scared of the disappoinents

First time 2017
So I started to cramp and I thought it was my period so I got a little sad because me and my husband have been wanting a baby and when I looked down it was brown and I looked up it up and it said that it could be implantation bleeding but it seems every time I cramp I bleed but it's not like the ones I've had before they won't last that long and don't hurt that bad so is this just period or could I be pregnant

I have a quick question. My boyfriend and I had sex. Used a condom, he didn't ejaculate while inside of me, and ended up finishing on my stomach area (wouldn't let him near my vagina). Is there any possibility that I could be pregnant?

Hi there, I had sex with my partner the week of ovulation. Started with a bad back pain on the day of ovulation. Then started with all the pregnancy Symtoms. Bloating, gasy, nausea, tired, cramps. My period came but was 2 days late. Was very heavy at first but only lasted 2 days with a brown discharge. Pregnancy symptoms continued. My sense of smell has changed. Want to throw up to any weird smell. Could I be pregnant. Taken 2 test and both negative.
