    I started my period at my normal time (yesterday), then it stopped overnight, then started again later this morning. Last night, it was a brown color, and then today it was more normal. My periods always start really heavy, so it is strange that it stopped and then started again. I am on the pill for the last 3 years, so this was a bit strange. Could I be pregnant??

    that's happened to me.
    It's most likely stress or something else effecting your cycle.

    If your period is otherwise normal, than I wouldn't worry about it.

    However, if you miss your next period or start to develop early pregnancy symptoms, than you might want to make a doctor's appointment
