Had sex on the 16th. Took Plan B on 18th. Took pregnancy test 29th(negative). She started to bleed (spotting). Is she ok? She usually ha heavy periods

Likely, yes: Better would have been to take Plan B on the 16th, but hindsight is 20/20 isn't it! if pregnancy test on 29th was negative, likely she's not pregnant. Spotting can sometimes be a sign of early pregnancy, so she should take another test in 4-6 days to make sure not pregnant. Or maybe full period will come in the meantime. How about reliable birth control if you don't want to be a father yet! ...Read more

Having : Having normal, regular periods makes pregnancy unlikely, but not impossible. If there is any doubt, you might as well check with a test. As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. You can either take another home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period, so another negative test would help confirm that you are not pregnant. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. ...Read more

Ttc always have very regular heavy periods. This month 1 week early very light bleed for a week had sex before during & after ovulation   pregnant?

Maybe: If you didn't prevent pregnancy, you may be pregnant. You can take a home pregnancy test, do it about one week after the period was supposed to come. In the mean time, if you have pain and the pregnancy test is positive, see a doctor to make sure it is in the uterus, not an ectopic. If period comes , you may have irregular bleeding as your hormones change. Talk to your provider. ...Read more
