    Period confussion
    An_254420 posted:
    My fiance and I use the pull out method, my period was late by 5 days this month then, and I apologize, lasted 2 days with heavy bleeding only second day. After the second day, I had light brown discharge for about 2 more days. I don't know if I should wait til next month to test or what. Its very confusing. HELP!

    I would wait. Heavy bleeding is not a sign of pregnancy.
    An_254420 replied to tlkittycat1968's response:
    well it was only a couple days it wasnt really heavy just normal going to wait til nxt month see what happens
    fcl replied to An_254420's response:
    A late period can happen to anyone. Being late isn't a sign of pregnancy, not having a period is.
