On December 23, one day after my period ended, my boyfriend and I fooled around (naked) but didn't engage in intercourse. I made sure I never came in contact with him. About a week later on the 29th, I noticed a little bit brownish discharge after I used the restroom. It couldn't be anything period related because my period was definitely over (I'm pretty regular, get my period around the middle of the month every month). Well, just today I woke up with this horrible pain in my lower abdomen. It feels like pretty intense gas/ crampy feeling. It still hasn't gone away. Just now when I peed I noticed a very faint spot of light pink when I wiped. Now I am definitely freaking out. This has never happened. I really didn't think there was any chance I could be pregnant since my boyfriend and I didn't have sex (never have), but now I don't know what's going on, why I have this pain in my stomach, and why I just spotted. help

HI ashpatm and welcome to scarleteen,
The spotting and pain might be related, and might not. The important thing is that if you're having unexplained pain that isn't going away, seeing a healthcare provider is your best bet to start off with. Abdominal pain is rarely if ever a sign of early pregnancy (and you wouldn't be having signs of pregnancy this early anyway) but it can be caused by many other things.
So, I would suggest calling your doctor (if you have one) and making an appointment to have the pain checked out, or going to a clinic or emergency room if it's really severe or if you don't have a doctor.
