I have been having light brown discharge with a light bleeding when i wipe. Pregnancy test said negative. What could it be?

Probably period: The brown discharge was likely a light period. Brown = old blood. Repeat a home pregnancy test to make sure you are not pregnant. An "off" period from time to time is very common and usually corrects itself in the next few cycles. If it continues schedule a visit for testing. ...Read more

Im still bleeding but its not heavy its light when should I take a pregnancy test?

More to question?: I think something is missing here. There is no indication if you are on time or late or early; there is no indication if you were sexually active without birth control when you ovulated during your cycle? In general testing begins to be advisable if your period is delayed or missed during a month when you had exposure to fresh semen when you ovulated. ...Read more

I had bleeding for 2 days 24 days ago, light bleeding today, could I be pregnant? Is it to early to take a pregnancy  test?

It depends: Was your light bleeding 24 days ago a normal period for you? How long is your normal cycle? When in doubt, go ahead and do a pregnancy test and, if it is negative, repeat it in 3-5 days in case it was negative because it was done too early. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I'm 5n half week pregnant. Started bleeding today morning but my pregnancy test is clear positive. Why so? Why still positive?

Half life of HCG: Even if you lost pregnancy, it will take a few days for the test to become negative. HCG already present in the body goes down with a half of 1.5 days. You may wish to wait for 5-10 days before repeating the test. Retained products of conception may cause more delay in the test becoming negative and may require D&C. ...Read more

I took a pregnancy test bout a week ago and it showed posative. I do not know how far along i am, but i have been bleeding all day. Is that normal?

No: Is it spotting or bleeding like a menstrual bleed. If it is latte, you should repeat the pregnancy test.You could have spontaneous loss of an early pregnancy, which is not uncommon. About 25% of early pregnancies are lost, mostly due to chromosomal defects in the embryo. Usually the only manifestation is a slightly heavy, delayed period. Get HPV vaccine ...Read more

I'm 3 days late, started bleeding pink/ brown. Took a pregnancy test yesterdayyou  and this morning both neg. I've had pregnancy sym. Is it possible?

Not likely: Pregnancy tests, even over-the-counter ones, are very accurate. Generally, if you conceived more than 14 days ago, the pregnancy test will be positive. There is a chance that you conceived too recently for the test to pick up the low levels of hormone in your system. If you had intercourse less than two weeks ago, then you will need to repeat the test when it has been at least two weeks. ...Read more
