Okay, i have searched the internet for two weeks now and i still have no clue...here is the story....I had my tubes tied 19 years ago, since april of this year i have been more sexually active than EVER, (like everyday)with the same man, June i had a normal period, july i had a day very light period, the end of july i had another period,(i should not have started until the following week)...wich would have been my august period....(aug.3) We took ept. on three different occasions, all negative. on Sept.3 had sex, and on Sept.4 had a brown/red discharge.....i have been eating constantly, gaining weight, tired to the point that i must have a nap every day, constipated recently, and when the brown/red discharge started it brought along mild cramping on either side of the pubic bone....as if i had my period....the brown/red discharge is not a lot, and mainly when i wipe.....i am not covered by insurance and since my boyfriend makes to much money planned parenthood is going to charge us 80 dollars to find out anything.....how soon should i take another ept test? is there a brand that is better than the rest? i really cannot afford to waist the money if the test is going to come back negative anyway.....all symptoms point to preggo, does anyone have any other ideas? how do i determine when i conceived if that is truly the case? i thought the end of july period was implantation bleeding but now with the brown/red in sept... i dont know what to think.....please someone help.......
