I am 28 years old and have been sexually active - but safe when having sex. I do not think that I am pregnant but contraceptives are not always 100% efective. I am supposed to be having my period in the next day or so... but for the last few days I have had a weird discharge - brown clots... and a little bit of red... My periods are usually pretty heavy.
It is not possible to have spotting or light bleeding when one is pregnant. As you have spotting with clots, it is clear that you are not pregnant. You have not mentioned the date of your last menstrual period, to relate your present symptom with the last period, so it is not possible to ascertain if there was any possible pregnancy.
But, your symptoms are suggestive irregular period and a possible infection like vaginitis or cervicitis. You are advised to see your gynecologist immediately for the examination and treatment. Thank you.
