Ok. So I'm having some questionable thoughts. I've been on birth control for a few years now. And recently I've been pretty forgetful with taking them. I missed enough pills to apparently cause me to have my period early. I bled for about 4 or 5 days. Then it immediately turned into a dark brown discharge that's lasting for 10 days and counting. Should I be worried? Am I pregnant? Am I pregnant and having a miscarriage?
Oh, and for the record, I'm 24 years old, and already have kids. This is nothing I've ever experienced before. But to add in a few things.... My appetite has increased. I randomly fall asleep, even when I don't feel tired. My breasts seem larger, and are a bit tender too.
