I am on antibiotocs for strep throat, and yes I am taking medicine for my yeast infection. I just started college and have had concern of being pregnant so I would say that I am a bit stressed at the moment, and my period aren't always regular
Expert:  Dr Josh replied 3 months ago.

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problems.

Well, Changes in the period blood in terms of color and texture aren’t always related to health problems and shouldn’t be taken too seriously unless it persists or happens frequently with other symptoms such as pain, itchiness and swelling in the genitals.

Orange period blood is a result of the red blood getting mixed with the cervical fluid which gives it an orange color along with red flecks. It can happen at times of yeast infection.

Having light periods, with orange/red watery is normal.

No need to take stress. It doesn't sounds to be pregnancy. No need to worry.

Stress, hormonal imbalance, exercise, anxiety issue could cause such changes in period blood and texture.

No need to to get panic.

You are not pregnant.

Hope this helped.
