Im pretty sure I'm pregnant..
Me && my partner had unprotected sex during ovulation.
5 days after, I noticed some spotting of blood, then it just stopped, the next day it's started again, this time it was brownish-pinkish. It's been 11 days since, I feel more tired than usual, nausea, weird feeling in my tummy (uterus),
&& headaches/ light-headed. I honestly feel pregnant.
People may say its too early, but sometimes you just know.
I still have 12 days til my period so I know these symptoms aren't from AF. I'll take 3 HPT's about a week after my expectant date for AF if it doesn't come. Me && him are excited:D

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe (spotting, brown discharge, increased tiredness, nausea, abdominal discomfort, headaches, lightheadedness) could suggest pregnancy possibility if you have been sexually active without protection around your ovulation time. Few women can experience the symptoms as early as 24-48 hours after fruitful intercourse. You can get false negative results with urine pregnancy tests done very early in pregnancy, as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. Urine pregnancy test kits usually start showing positive results after about 20 days post-conception (roughly corresponding to about 1 week after your missed/altered periods). The test should always be done on early morning first urine sample to get accurate results (pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be in highest concentration in this sample, and you should avoid lot of fluid intake and caffeinated beverages in the night before taking the test). Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, 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). 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.
Take care.
