hi, i'm really worried that i might be pregnant. My periods are always on time and usually heavy and last about 7 days. except recently i bled on the 27th/28th day of cycle and it was not as heavy. usually i can fill a extra observant tampon every 2 hours except this time i didn't even fill a regular tampon every 4 hours. The bleeding stopped after 2 days but was mostly discharge on day 2. My partner and i have been having unprotected sex with the pull out method... could i be pregnant?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!
These changes in menstrual cycle are considered as normal in reproductive age females. However,I would suggest you to have serum beta HCG level if you want confirmation earlier because it gives early result compared to urine.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
