My period was supposed to come yesterday, but the blood was dark brown and light in flow. Today it’s heavier and is more of a vibrant red.Is it possible that I’m pregnant?


It’s normal for the color and heaviness of your period to vary. It’s not a sign of pregnancy for it to start out light and then get heavier. What would be a sign of pregnancy? Not getting your period at all when you expect it, especially if you’ve recently had sex without a condom or another method of birth control.

If you’re worried, you can always take a pregnancy test to put your mind at ease.
