Im really scared, something really weird is happening to me! Okay here it is...my period ended about 2 weeks ago. Since then I have had sex, my period has been on the same schedule for about a year now! But just yesterday I went to the bathroom and noticed some brown discharge and blood in my underwear! I was scared so the first thing I did was go out and buy 2 pregnancy tests, both turned out negative. Since then, I havent had anymore brown discharge but just blood it resembles a period to me, just not as heavy. Im afraid, what could it be? I thought at first that maybe it was implantation bleeding, but isnt that just spotting? I think this is more than spotting, but I dont exactly know what spotting is! Please help me, im really worried!!

Did you have a high pregnancy risk to begin with? In other words, did you have intercourse without birth control, or did your method fail?
Unless either of those are the case, there's likely no need to worry about pregnancy. If either of those are the case, and you've had a risk in the last two weeks, you took the tests to soon. You'll need to wait until your first missed or late period OR until it has been at least 10 days since the risk.
The sort of discharge you're describing can be a lot of things. It can be the onset of a period, it could also be spotting or implantation bleeding. It could also be a symptom of infection.
