Please help. Dark brown discharge
I got stomach cramps on Saturday afternoon than i went to the bathroom an saw that i have a very dark, almost black discharge. I thought it will disappear but after a while the cramps came back then there was a little blood on my panties. This brown discharge is still coming out.

I'm using Nordette Contraceptives and i'm not on the red pill so i'm not suppose to get my periods yet that's why it's freaking me out.

About three weeks ago i thought i was pregnant and did a HPT and it came out negative. But that is also scarring me. What it the test was faultly and i am pregnant. I'm scared i don't know what to do.

Can anyone please tell me what the course of the dark brown discharge is.

Urgent.

It sounds like breakthrough bleeding. If you thought you might be pregnant, I presume that you missed some pills. This may be the reason for the bleeding.
