Took Plan B two days before period was meant to come. Had brown spotting for two days. It has now been a week since expected period and nothing. Preg?

Doubtful, but....: Check a pregnancy test just to make sure not pregnant. The bleeding you had with your Plan B was likely your period, but it is very common for it to be very unusual in amount and duration. It is also not unusual for you to "miss" your "normal" period as the lining of the uterus has already shed itself. But if you have any concerns about pregnancy, an OTC test is accurate, quick and cheap ...Read more

Hi. GF is 22. Last Period = March 7. Been having dark brown spotting for the past two days now. Sex is casual, always used new condoms. Please help..

What help are you...: Seeking? Perhaps some info will help. #1. How long is menstrual cycle & is it regular like clockwork or a bit random? Big variable there, since ovulation has occurred as early as day 6 & late as day 17. #2. Although an unfertilized egg lives only ~24 hours, sperm live for days. #3. It takes 5-6 days for a fertilized egg to implant. *So based on those numbers, spotting could signify implantation... ...Read more

How?: Variations in the number of days and intensity of bleeding are not uncommon. I do not know of any way for you to pay more attention. If you are sexually active, practice safe sex and if you do not wish to be pregnant use contraception all the time, every time. If you bleed more than usual discuss getting tested for anemia, with your doctor. ...Read more

Pelvic infection?: The combination of abnormal vaginal discharge or bleeding, plus low abdominal pain or cramps, suggests a problem in the uterus or fallopian tubes. If pregnant, you may be miscarrying. If not, then STDs are a good bet, e.g. gonorrhea or chlamydia causing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID, fallopian tube infection), especially if any fever or if at risk for STD. See a doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more
