If it is negative then it is just irregular menstrual bleeding. ...Read more

Bleeding common: Bleeding at any point after ovulation and during the first trimester of pregnancy is very non specific and does not really point to any diagnosis. Implantation technically occurs 6 days post ovulation. In our patients, 65% had bleeding early in pregnancy with a low miscarriage rate. We encourage patients not to worry about these intermittent bleeds. Good luck. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill. Brown is simply old blood that has been sitting at the back of the vagina. Often things get back to normal the next cycle. If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous. ...Read more

Got my second shot of depo provera (medroxyprogesterone) 11 and a half weeks ago. Thursday past I had brown discharge once during the day. Could it be implantation bleed?

Very unlikely: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is effective for 12 weeks, even longer in some women. Irregular brown discharge is very common in women on Depo, especially as they get closer to their next injection. I have some patients who find they need injections every 10 weeks instead of 12 because of this spotting. Just make sure you get that third injection. ...Read more

When having light pink implantation bleeding, does it have to eventually turn brownish? I'm on day 3 of light pink on the toilet paper when I wipe.

When having light pink implantation bleeding, does it have to eventually turn brownish? I'm on day 3 of light pink on the toilet paper when I wipe.

Want A Boy Or Girl?: I don't think there's a law or executive order that mandates that implantation blood must turn brown. But the usual course of events"down there" is for blood that remains inside there for any good length of time to turn brownish. There are other reasons for light pink blood. But if you are mid-cycle and you're in the process of trying to get pregnant, then that's a good guess. It shouldn't last long ...Read more

My LMP was feb.15, and yesterday I noticed some brown/pinkish discharge. Normal since then. Could that be anything other than implantation bleeding?

Possibly: Usually implantation bleeding occurs about a week after ovulation, and assuming a 28 day cycle with ovulation at day 14 the timing is right. It is possible if you have a longer cycle the bleeding can be due to ovulation. Wait a week and do a home urine test for pregnancy. If + schedule your first OB visit. ...Read more
