Unexplained pain: There are many causes for your pain. I don't know how late you are with your period. If you have regular periods and have not had one this month, get a pregnancy test. If this is not the case, your pain could be related to an ovarian cyst, constipation, ect. I highly recommend you follow up in the office for further evaluation. You may need to have a physical exam and/or ultrasound.

Need Gynecology Eval: Vaginal bleeding is not always your menstrual peiod. Sometimes women get miscarriages that happen about the time that they expect their periods. Also, there are a lot of conditions that can develop in the uterus that can cause bleeding such as fibroids, uterine polyps, cancer, infections, etc. Your sister should go and see her pcp or a gynecologist for an evaluation of her vaginal bleeding.

A member asked:

If you take a pregnancy test 2 weeks before your period is due will it give you the right results?

No: That is too early. Urine pregnancy tests are usually not positive until 5-6 days after you have missed a period. 2 weeks before you miss a period is right when you are ovulating.
