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.

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. Since you may be losing blood you may wish to take oral iron supplements available over the counter. Consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Nichd. Nih.

Do home test: Do a home pregnancy test with urine, now. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. Alternatively, you may get a blood test for HCG a couple of days after the missed period.

Evaluation Needed: I'm not sure if you are stating the pregnancy tests as a possible cause of your bleeding but the actual test would not cause bleeding. You will need to go to the doctor to be evaluated and proper treatment.

Can you have an accurate reading on a home pregnancy test when bleeding?

Why test: If by bleeding you mean menstrual bleeding, there would be no need to do a pregnancy test. Contamination of urine with blood may affect the reading, however, that can be prevented by proper specimen collection.

How many days after implantation bleeding could I take a pregnancy test?

How many days after implantation bleeding could I take a pregnancy test?

About a week: Generally implantation bleeding occurs around 7 days post ovulation. Although blood pregnant tests can be positive a day or so later; to be sure, you should wait about a week than you can do a urine pg test, that if you are pg, should be positive. If it is negative and you have not gotten your period, do a blood pg test because urine pg test are not 100% accurate. Good luck.

Yes if the fetus is: Still viable. A fetus takes about two weeks to make enough HCG for a positive pregnancy test. At six weeks after implantation, a negative pregnancy test would rule out pregnancy.

When implantation bleeding occurs, what is the best time to take a pregnancy test?

When implantation bleeding occurs, what is the best time to take a pregnancy test?

Pregnancy test: 11-12 days after ovulation you can get a reliable pregnancy test, occasionally they'll be accurate 10 days post-ov. "implanttaion bleeding" is mostly intenet nonsense; it mostly doesn;'t happen at all, and you can't time a pregnancy test off it.

If a pregnancy test is taken during implantation bleeding would it be positive or negative?

Negative: First I really don't believe in "implantation bleeding, " but implantation happens 6-7 days after fertilization. So 'if' you implanted, it would be almost a week later before test could be positive. Good luck!
