I had unprotected sex in February and randomly got a brown discharge during the time I was suppose to get my period for the first time in over a year and since then have gotten brownish discharges each time I'm suppose to get my period. I have no pregnancy symptoms other than cramps and pressure in my lower abdomen I would be about 16 weeks if I was however have taken 5 pregnancy tests (one of which was a week ago) and they've all been negative. Can I trust that I'm not pregnant? Also each month the sides of my breast get sore when I'm suppose to get my period but then it goes away
