Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I ended my period on sunday the 21st, and on saturday the 27th I started to spot. I am on birth control and take it regularly at the same time every day. The bleeding is very light. I had unprotected sex and my boyfriend came inside me (Sorry TMI) on the 25th and 26th. The bleeding is so light that I only notice it when I wipe. I put on a pantie liner and there is only small marks of blood but the blood is not red, its more of an off pink/really light red, and on the pantie liner its brown. Could I be pregnant? I am not suppose to be on my period until the 11th of August. I have been lighting spotting since the 27th and it is now the 29th. Is it too early to take a pregnancy test if I am pregnant? Should I stop taking my birth control? Please help/Give your advise

Take a pregnancy test, that's the only way to know for sure if you are pregnant.

Would it be too early? I'm supposed to get my period in two weeks. doesnt it take time for HCG levels to rise?

Based on what you've said, it doesn't sound like you're pregnant. unless your cycle is very, very different, you wouldn't have ovulated so close to your period, which means there is another cause for your spotting. Hormonal irregularities are normal once in a while. If you are really concerned, see your doctor.
