brownish discharge, then a night of horrible stomach ache?

User Profile
After taking the 3 month shot (depo provera) I was on my period for most of the 3 months I was on it (periods lasting 2 weeks and stopping for 2 or 3 days then back again). Decided not to go back and get the shot but my irregular periods carried on. 3 weeks after my schedule appointment to get the shot my periods stopped, my husband and I had sex and 5 days after that I started what seemed to be like spotting and a high fever, a week after that a had a medium flow period and pregnancy symptoms ( nauseas, back ache, sensitive to smells, cravings), periods lasted for 9 days, and still feelings pregnancy symptoms, took 2 hpt which were both negative, went for a scan but it was negative. A week after my last period I noticed a brownish discharge, then a night of horrible stomach ache, feeling pressure on my bladder, constant feeling of a full bladder. The night after the horrible stomach ache, my stomach has been bloated right below my belly, 2 times my usual stomach size. What's happenin

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe along with persistence of symptoms could suggest chances of pregnancy. The urine pregnancy tests done very early in pregnancy can show you false negative results as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. If you suspect pregnancy possibility, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). You might also consider getting repeat ultrasound scan done (preferably transvaginal scan) as early scans can fail to detect fetal pole & heartbeat which become clear after 6-8 weeks.
Take care.
