BC prescription lapsed, 3 weeks off, Started again a week before expected period.. Had some bleeding and cramps a day before expected period, Normal?

YES: I assume you were also using condoms and spermicidal foam or gel while not protected. Pills don't lapse on their own...patient either forget to renew or take them. 3 weeks off would put you at risk for pregnancy if sexually active. ...Read more

TTC for one and a half years nw period has always been regular 31 day cycle why am i bleeding (light pink) no cramps etc 5 days before period is due?

Might be ok: Hopefully you are taking a basal body temperture every morning before you get out of bed and have detected a biphasic shift indicating ovulation. if you are ovulating alright, everything is fine. The light pink is just an indication that you aren't pregnant or have inadequate progesterone for the late cycle, so get some light bleeding. ...Read more

Had bleeding 1wk before period, started light pink then red with cramps like a period. I noticed a sweet smell when I pee. Could I be pregnant?

Back to School?: Bleeding never represents viable pregnancy. In general viable pregnancy stops vaginal bleeding. Sweet smelling urine is not in any way a symptom of pregnancy. If you do not believe us or still worry then please go get a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Did your parents: Ever have "the talk" with you? You cannot get pregnant by being fingered. It requires male sperm, and you do not say anything about any contact with that. So the answer, if there has been no other contact with men or their body fluids, would be no. ...Read more

Period was 6 days early it last two days very light and never came when it was due.. I've been havin slight cramps no bleeding.

Menstrual changes?: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or ob-gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

Period has been late a couple times but never more then 3 days today is day 5 and I have light bleeding really cranky and cramps what's wrong?

Late period: There is a chance the bleeding you're experiencing will turn into a regular period. The way you describe your condition is very much like one during a period. Just wait and see where it takes you next. In case you're in doubt and there is a chance of pregnancy, don't hesitate to rule that out by doing a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Lifted several 3cubic ft bags of mulch the other day after i started weird wound like bleeding and severe cramps am i in danger? period isnt until6/10

See the doc: I am concerned about the severe cramps and the bleeding. You did not say if you were on birth control or not. I suspect you are okay to try your normal medicine for the cramping and see your doctor tomorrow. If you are light headed and dizzy, you should see a doctor ASAP to see if you have anemia due to the bleeding; I am not sure the quantity of your bleeding. ...Read more
