Well, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex two weeks ago today. The following day after we had sex, I started bleeding brown blood for three and a half days. It switched from dark brown blood to bright red to dark brown again. My period is two days late and I did take a pregnancy test that showed up negative. ...What is going on??
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The prolonged spotting, altered bleeding, delayed periods could suggest chances of pregnancy. Urine pregnancy tests done early in pregnancy can show you false negative results. Wait and watch for your periods. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop any new symptoms, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
