I'm on day 8 of my period. They usually only last 4 days. Very bright red blood with some mucous it seems like. Should I go to the ER?

I'm on day 8 of my period. They usually only last 4 days. Very bright red blood with some mucous it seems like. Should I go to the ER?

Obgyn visit not ER: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

I'm having scant dark blood streaks in my cervical mucous and my period ended a week ago, could I be pregnant?

I'm having scant dark blood streaks in my cervical mucous and my period ended a week ago, could I be pregnant?

Unlikely: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Period is 2 weeks late but blood and urine tests all negative less than 1 I'm having pregnancy symptoms and had white mucous discharge 1 week ago?

Period is 2 weeks late but blood and urine tests all negative less than 1 I'm having pregnancy symptoms and had white mucous discharge 1 week ago?

Pregnant: If you are pregnant, a urine pregnancy test will not turn positive until 3-4 days after implantation or about 10 days after ovulation/fertilization and 4 days before the next period. This can be longer. There are false negatives tests but this is rare. Get a blood pregnancy test; if this is still negative rule out other things such as not ovulating. See your doctor. ...Read more

3.5m PP, not BF, using condoms. Having Period like cramps for over 2 weeks w/no blood but lots of clear mucous discharge. Any cause for concerns? I don't remember this after first child.

3.5m PP, not BF, using condoms. Having Period like cramps for over 2 weeks w/no blood but lots of clear mucous discharge. Any cause for concerns? I don't remember this after first child.

Perhaps: Congratulations! At 3.5 months postpartum, one would typically not still be passing remnants of placenta or decidua. Also the cramping with no menses is not really expected. You have presumably already had your postpartum 6 week check-up. Please contact your obstetrician's office for an appointment or at least discussion of your current symptoms. Good wishes:) ...Read more

3days cramping and dark brown discharge when wiping, mucous like n very little red blood. Period 1wk ago n protected sex 1x since then. What is it?

3days cramping and dark brown discharge when wiping, mucous like n very little red blood. Period 1wk ago n protected sex 1x since then. What is it?

Breakthrough: This sounds like a hormone imbalance or breakthrough bleeding. Sometimes this occurs because estrogen and Progesterone (your 2 female hormones produced in ovary) are not in the right balance to each other. Sometimes it's due to pituitary or thyroid issues. And lastly, sometimes due to weight (too thin/heavy). If bothers you can consider birth control pills to help regulate. Best of luck. ...Read more

I had my period 16 days ago and today I saw pink blood in my cervix mucous. I'm 25 and I have been trying to have a baby so I hope this is a sine.

May be: It is too early to know if you are pregnant. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period.

Late Period 3 days. Slight dark dark red blood when I wipped off. Mornings redish/mucous disrcharge. Usually heavy flow by 2nd 3rd day. Pregnant?

Late Period 3 days. Slight dark dark red blood when I wipped off. Mornings redish/mucous disrcharge. Usually heavy flow by 2nd 3rd day. Pregnant?

Maybe not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
