Check pregnancy test: Check a pregnancy test. If positive, you may be experiencing an early miscarriage. If negative, you likely had an late ovulation this month which threw your cycle off.

Unusual cycles that only happen once usually aren't worth working up. Consistently irregular or problematic cycles are worth a visit to the gynecologist. ...Read more

Not to worry: The brown blood represents blood that was retained in the uterus after your period and is just leaving now. The
older blood takes on a brown color. This is something that can occur naturally and is no cause for worry. ...Read more

Reevaluate IUD: Your symptoms are not entirely normal. You should see your gyn and be reevaluated, both pelvic and iud placement. Of course; infection should be ruled out. ...Read more

Sonogram results: If one experiences bleeding during pregnancy then a sonogram must be done to confirm that there is a viable pregnancy located inside of the uterus. Since you had the sonogram today it is important that you find out the results. If the results were not communicated to you then call and ask for them. ...Read more

Last month I had my regular period (cramping, heavy flow) this month, I've been having heavy brown discharge mixed with small amounts of blood. Why?

Last month I had my regular period (cramping, heavy flow) this month, I've been having heavy brown discharge mixed with small amounts of blood. Why?

Commonly seen: Blood sitting in the vagina too long will turn brown/dark because of the high acidity. So, it maybe that you bled just little and the blood stayed there too long. It could also be that you are pregnant, or have an infection such as vaginitis. Most likely, however, it is normal discharge from having a lighter period than last month. If worsens, consult your doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm on birth control and not sexually active. I had a strange period where I passed only small brown clots and no liquid blood with bad cramps. Worry?

Monitor: Monitor your cycles over the next few months and see what happens. When you are on the birth control pill it is in control of your menstrual cycle. If your bleeding happened at the correct time then this does not seem to be a cause for alarm. ...Read more

Period started on the day it should have, red period started but I'm having brown blood with small brown clots as well. I also have cramping, is this a sign of pregnancy? I took an at home pregnancy test which was negative.

Period started on the day it should have, red period started but I'm having brown blood with small brown clots as well. I also have cramping, is this a sign of pregnancy? I took an at home pregnancy test which was negative.

No: Blood that exposed to air for a while will turn brown and it will also tend to clot up, so what you are describing is normal. While there is a very small possibility of pregnancy despite what seems to be a normal period, this pattern does not suggest a pregnancy. ...Read more

As: As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a young, fertile woman is having a missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come.

There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. You being underweight could affect your period. If you are not pregnant and are still worried about an irregular cycle, give your doctor a call. Your doctor will take a thorough history and physical and may run some tests to find out why your period is irregular. Good luck! ...Read more

What to do if I have cramps with just a small blood and a very little clot. Is my abortion successful?

What to do if I have cramps with just a small blood and a very little clot. Is my abortion successful?

Need more info: I'm guessing you are talking about a medical abortion or medical treatment of miscarriage. If so, it may not have been successful, you will need to follow up with your doc. Call them. Sometimes a second dose of Misoprostol is needed. If you had a d;c and this is afterwards, it could be totally normal. ...Read more

I'm 5 weeks and yesterday Iwas spotting and now I woke up with slight cramps and the blood is a little heavier with small clots is this normal?

No.: While it may mean nothing serious is wrong, and will go away, we cannot tell from here. Other more serious problems may be the cause. Call your doc or get seen today. If you have dizziness, severe pain, or fever, heavy bleeding, (more than a pad soaked in an hour), go to an ER if you cannot reach your doc. ...Read more

Looked at my pad and there was a couple rings of brown blood then a drop of pinkish blood. What is this. I've had period like cramps and what not.?

Looked at my pad and there was a couple rings of brown blood then a drop of pinkish blood. What is this. I've had period like cramps and what not.?

Hard to tell...: A doctor can check to see if there is a medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of mucus discharge, of periods, or a missed period on occasion. Some women feel normal after a few days, but others have bothersome symptoms and follow-up with a doctor. A urine pregnancy test is accurate if done correctly, after a missed period, or 3 wks after sex. ...Read more

I just had an abortion2days ago&my bleeding went from very little w/brown in color2heavy cramps soaking a pad every2hours&bright red blood. Is this bad?

Yes: That's a hefty amount of fresh blood, even just 2 days post-procedure. You could have retained products of pregnancy (the abortion left some stuff behind). Take lots of fluids, and if bleeding does not slow down in a few hours or at any point you feel light-headed, weak - call 911 or have someone get you to er - don't drive yourself! ...Read more
