I had light period on 13th march lasted just one day on/off done home pregnacy test says positive would you say that's a normal period?

I had light period on 13th march lasted just one day on/off done home pregnacy test says positive would you say that's a normal period?

Depends on the past: "normal" period means a period that is like all the other periods one has had over the past year. If this "light period" that lasts "just one day" with menstrual flow going "on/off" is just like all the other periods in the preceding months, then a woman could think this is a normal period. However, with a positive pregnancy test, the vaginal bleeding is not a real period even if it seemed normal. ...Read more

Can having brown blood mean pregnancy also? Yes I will test just wanna know if it's possible or it was just a weird period with old blood

Can having brown blood mean pregnancy also? Yes I will test just wanna know if it's possible or it was just a weird period with old blood

Hard to tell: It can be hard to guess whether a woman is pregnant or not. 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, or after having a "weird" 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. ...Read more
