My period is late and i spotted twice after a pap smear... Should i take a pregnancy test or is the delay due to the pap smear?

Don’t guess.: Take a test.  they are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  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. ...Read more

8 months pp, my period this month is a dark brown with some bleeding. I had a pap smear earlier this month and everything was good. Why is that?

Nothing Wrong: The Pap likely had nothing to do with this; most likely, your 'corpus luteal cyst' failed, and your period is early. This small cyst is normal, every cycle, and is where the ovum/egg was growing, preparing for ovulation. Could have been a blighted ovum in the first place. You'll have to wait for next month! ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test . There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more
