help! im confused..could i be pregnant??

hello all.
im ogg birth control since april and me and my husband are ttc. so heres what im confused about. my last period was may 27th. my cycle is 30 days long. so i didnt get my period at ALL in june. so i took a preg test july first and it said negative. then on the july 7th i got a very weird..period? idk if thats what u would call it. it was very dried up and brownish with dark red and it was only about 3 days. i went thru maybe 8 tampons total n they were never close to full..sometimes i would go hours without any tampon in and would be fine. its now the 19th and i dont know if i have any symptoms. do u think i should take another pregnancy test? could i be pregnant?

  • It wouldn't hurt to take another test.

  • I'd take another pregnancy test and if it comes up negative, you may want to talk to a doctor about the weird period and missed period if that isn't a common occurrence for you.

  • Take another preg test, just to be sure.
    Remember that it can take up to 6 months post BC for your body to start regulating itself. It depends on how long you were on BC< and how strong a BC you were taking. Expect odd cycles for awhile.

  • Anytime you miss a full normal period you should test.

  • when i got pregnant i had a brownish red bleeding called implantation bleeding (look it up) and i didnt get a positive test until about a month after that occurred everyones body is different but it could also be that you got off bc and its messing with your hormones.
