about a week after what i assumed to be just a light period i began to see brownish red discharge. i am now experiencing frequent urination also. i had my tubes tied 7 years ago so my husband and i do not use any form of birth control. is there a chance i could be pregnant?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms of brown discharge, lighter periods, frequent urination that you describe could suggest chances of pregnancy due to chances of spontaneous recanalization of fallopian tubes. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough evaluation and assistance if you suspect chances of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods and look out for development of any new symptoms or worsening/persistence of current symptoms. 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.
