Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. 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. If negative see your doctor for irregular periods. ...Read more

Hi dr.. Im ttc, my period is due today. For three days i'm having dark brown spotting. -ve hpt. Is this implantation or preg? Tested too early?

Implantation bleeding is much more common on the internet than in real life.: It occurs rarely and exclusively in someone who is pregnant. The only way to know if someone had implantation bleeding or just irregular menstrual bleeding is to wait and see if you are pregnant. If your test is positive then this was implantation bleeding. If it is negative then it is just irregular menstrual bleeding. ...Read more

Irregular bleeding: Any woman of fertile age who has an irregular. Must consider the possibility that she is pregnant. A pregnancy test is necessary, perhaps a blood test. Other possibilities include anatomical issues with the uterus. I would have a pelvic ultrasound to look at the possibility of a fibroid or perhaps a polyp. And ovarian cyst that is functioning and making hormones can also cause this. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

See answer: Every woman will experience an irregular period from time-to-time, and though, in most cases, they aren't dangerous, it's important to figure out what's causing the irregularity. Common causes include stress, travel, dieting, excessive exercise, illness, or any other disruption in your usual daily routine. If irregular, abnormal periods persist, then should see gyne for further evaluation. ...Read more

A person can't tell: Wait. A positive pregnancy test can tell a woman that prior spotting was actually implantation spotting. It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more
