Take a test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I'm bleeding in my 7th week of pregnancy  should I be worried?

Yes: Vaginal bleeding during the first trimester of pregnancy can be a sign of threatened abortion. It can be more serious if you are having abdominal/pelvic pain. Call your OB on call or if you do not have one, go to an emergency room for an ultrasound. ...Read more

Does light bleeding for 3 days during 8th week of pregnancy alarming?

Get checked by your: Gyn. If there's no abdominal cramping, fever, or worsening of bleeding, it's usually benign. Your gyn would give you a better assessment of your condition. Bed rest and avoidance of sexual activity would be wise to do for now. God bless u! ...Read more

Uncertain: If your pregnancy ended at 4 weeks 5 days from last period, that means the embryo was only 2 weeks along in its development. It might have been resorbed without any bleeding. I have two questions. 1: how did you know you miscarried? 2. Is it possible you are still pregnant? I would recommend another pregnancy test. If it's negative you should have another period in about two weeks. ...Read more

I do not know: As stated in your question, there is still the chance you may be pregnant, but you need to see the dr to determine if in fact you are and that may include getting serial quantatative B-HcG blood testing done. An OB-GYN dr. would be who you need to see. Best wishes. ...Read more

Sorry, but likely: You should talk with your doctor to have an exam, a blood test for the pregnancy hormone hcg, and possibly an ultrasound to sort out what's going on. ...Read more

You need a GYN exam: Given the fact that you have a postitive pregnancy test & had an ectopic pregnancy in the past, it is imperative that you been seen and properly evaluated & followed by your gyn. With a history of ectopic pregnancy, you have about a 15% chance of it happening again. Make sure you explain your past and current history with your gyn and be seen by him/her as soon as possible. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor.
