“I’ve missed my period two months in a row. Around the time I was supposed to have my second period, I had some sort of brownish red discharge. I am sexually active and mostly use the “pull out” method. I took a pregnancy test a few days after I should have started my second period but it came back negative. I’m not sure what this means or what I should do.. Help!
You should see a care provider to be evaluated
for pregnancy. You don’t mention if your age, what type of relationship you are
in or if you are okay with an unintended pregnancy. The “pull out” method is
not a reliable method to prevent pregnancy. Your care provider can discuss your
options for birth control, provide testing for sexually transmitted infections
and evaluate why you have missed periods, if you are not pregnant.
Many women feel like getting pregnant or
getting a sexually transmitted infection will not happen to them, but many of
those women are wrong! Find out how to protect yourself by getting the
education you need to make informed choices about your health.
Hope this helps!
