Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been sexually active around ovulation time, then the altered bleeding that you describe could suggest pregnancy possibility (as suggested by your other symptoms). Dark or altered menstrual bleeding could also indicate presence of old blood, hormonal changes, infective causes, endometritis, ovarian cysts, use of any medications, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the abnormal bleeding that you describe. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the bleeding and regulate your periods and get pregnant. Consider being 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. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
