Welcome to ehealthforum,
The chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out if you were sexually active closer to your fertile days/ovulation time. The dark brown discharge, lighter spotting, abdominal cramps could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. 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 symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
