I stopped taking birthcontrol about a month ago I had


Q: I stopped taking birthcontrol about a month ago I had unprotected sex on the 27,28, and 30th of April. My period should be due May 11th and two days ago(five days before my period) I had brown discharge, at first it was light brown and as the day progressed it turned darker and had little string/clot like things...today(1 day later) the discharge is more red, still light not liked my normal period. I have had a little chest soreness, headache, back pain, a little nausea, some bloating. If I wereto be pregnant I would be about three weeks, I figure it would be too soon to have symptoms and I'm not sure what was with the brown-reddish discharge. If it sounds like I'm pregnant when should I test my actually period should be May 11th in about three days. Any help is appreciated.
