I'm having an issue that I need some advice with!!

You see about a week and a half ago I had brown mucus come out of me when I wiped and went to the toilet (a couple of days after unprotected sex) but it only went for a day and a half. I'm not getting any of the normal signs that my period is coming (normally start spotting by now).

My issue is that i'm a tad nervous that its going to be late and my partner and I had an arguement bout 6 months back because he thought I was tricking him into getting pregnant because I was writing down when I was getting my period ( that wasn't my intention). I have since then stopped doing that to make him feel more at ease I just try and remember the dates of when its due.

Do you think i'm just being paranoid??

When should I consider buying a pregnancy test if it is late??

Its probably nothing and i'll most likely get it in the morning but for future reference please respond to my post!!

Thanks

You can test as soon as you miss your period. Actually you can test up to 4 days before your period is even due, but sometimes the results aren't as accurate....

If he dosn't beleive you than that's his fault. Did'nt you say you stopped keeping track of it??

Don't let him blame it on you if your pregnant....It's just as much as his responiblity as it is yours

As far as your signifigant other is concerned he just does not understand. I was told by my gyn to keep track of my cycles. It is the best way to tell when is something is wrong with you... Even other than pregnancy. Did you try to explain that to him and that when we women go to the dr's even for a cold that they always ask us the date of our last menstrual cycle.

Aye he should know that you are suppost to keep track of your period just so you know if there is any problems. If you are pg its just as much his fault as yours ( sorry to sound like that) but anyway, as for the matter at hand. Say well you wanted me to stop tracking my period so I did. I didn't trap you or anything if I am pg. I tried to keep track of it so I knew what my period was like and so if it stoped I could see what was going on. Wether you believe me or not is your choice as for me going on with this pg .... Thats my choice but I really want you to understand I was tracking so I knew and so I could plan accordingly so this would be less likely to happen. Cause keeping track of my period is also a way to find out when I ovulate and what not. And go with that. He might hate you but he should get over himself maybe he might want this maybe not but either way if you are then its happening. If he doesn't want you or anything to do with it at that point. Then thats his choice. You can't make guys grow up and take resopnisbility. Its something that happens over a long period of time. And some guys its hard to explain but I know obgyns do tell you to keep track of them so you know if somethings wrong with you or your body. Whether its stress, pg, or cancer.

Brownish Discharge
I am 18 weeks pregnant and happily married. However, my husband and I had sex and a day later I had a brown discharge, I freaked and called my obgyn, they told me that it was just from having intercourse and that the discharge was from that and could be present for up to 48hours. So don't panic, it could be just that....

Thanks Again Ladies! Much Appreciated!
Well for now lets hope thats all it is!!

Still no period but the last 24 hrs I have felt like I have pee'd myself. I keep on thinking its my period but obviously isn't!!

It tends to happen in mid cycle but never when i'm due for my period.

Thanks again ladies
