3 positive pregnancy test, 2 times for 2 months light bleeding for 3 days, recent positive pregnancy, brown discharge, red spotting, pregnant or not?

Yes: If you have a positive pregnancy test, you're pregnant. Is it a normal pregnancy? The urine test can't tell that. It's possible to have bleeding or spotting when you're pregnant. My recommendation would be to see a doctor to confirm you have an intrauterine pregnancy. They can perform ultrasound as well a check a blood test to see what your pregnancy levels are. Best of luck! ...Read more

Faint positive on pregnancy test 2 days in a row then 2 negatives. Could I be pregnant. Several symptoms including pink discharge, implantation?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's 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

What if I took a home pregnancy test and it came out positive? Then the next month a get a vaginal discharge and it comes out brown what does that mean?

A: A positive pregnancy test means that you are likely pregnant. Brown discharge could be some slight bleeding.

20-30% of women will have some vaginal bleeding in the first trimester of pregnancy. First trimester bleeding can have many causes such as:
threatened miscarriage - bleeding, but the fetus is still alive inside
miscarriage - lost pregnancy
ectopic pregnancy - a pregnancy which implants in the fallopian tube
molar pregnancy - abnormal tissue developing instead of a fetus
post-coital bleeding - bleeding after sex from a sensitive cervix
trauma or infection unrelated to pregnancy - small cuts or tears in the vagina or an infection such as pelvic inflammatory disease

since some of these can be dangerous and since vaginal bleeding during pregnancy is always considered abnormal, you should call you ob/gyne doctor for any bleeding. They will be able to check you and treat you appropriately. Good luck! ...Read more

I had unprotected sex 1 week after surgical abortion it's been 3weeks and I tested positive for a pregnancy test and pinkish discharge the next day?

I Doubt pregnancy: It can take weeks for the pregnancy hormone in your blood to drop to zero after you have an abortion. Its not instantaneous. Its likely that your pregnancy test is picking up the hormone from the aborted pregnancy. If you were in my office, I would get a quantitative blood pregnancy test and repeat it in 48 hours to see if it was falling or rising. A rising level might be a new pregnancy. ...Read more

Cytotec (misoprostol): Use of the drug Cytotec (misoprostol) in pregnancy has been associated with some significant side effects, including effects on a pregnancy. It is unlikely the sex had anything to do with your symptoms, but I would consult your obstetrician about the bleeding.
