I am 23 yrs old, I have been ttc for the first time just last month. My last period was on the 6th of January and lasted 7 days, I had sex on the 24th and 25th of jan. I have a 33 day cycle usually. then on the 5th of feb I had some spotting, 3 days before my due period. Light pink in colour and slightly brown too,I also had some stomach cramps. Today the bleeding bacame heavier, however it is slowing down again. Is it possible I am pregnant. I am super tired, have been getting headaches for the last week and I have all of a sudden started having minor reflux. I also noticed at the gym that my boobs were hurting. It is very strange for me to get my period so early. I eat very healthy, excercise and look after myself well. I don't drink or smoke. I have been tracking my period for the last 6 months and I have had a 33 day cycle every month. Should I be worried? I can't get into the doctors for three weeks.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been sexually active around your probable ovulation time, then the symptoms (spotting, pink/brown discharge, abdominal cramps, increased tiredness, headaches, heartburn, sore breasts) could suggest pregnancy possibility. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If the symptoms suggestive of pregnancy are persistent, or if periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist 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.
Take care.
