My period was a week early and last 3 days and now the 4th day just brown blood. Could this be implantation bleeding or just a early period?

My period was a week early and last 3 days and now the 4th day just brown blood. Could this be implantation bleeding or just a early period?

Implantation bleed: 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

Short cycle: If you ovulated on the 12th day, a 25 or 26 day menstrual cycle would not be abnormal. I would expect to see a positive pregnancy test or a regular period within the next 2 to 3 days at most. If neither of these occurs, you should see your doctor. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very normal 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

Started three days early. Period much lighter then usual and all dark brown. I completely stopped for 24 hours now im back to light and brown.?

It happens sometimes: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, a longer or shorter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or Ob-Gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

Me and my gf had anal sex. Got her period 3 days early & last 3 days only and the blood was dark red and brownish everyday? Is that means pregnant?

A very tiny chance: Women have more than one hole, but sperm must enter the correct hole in order to swim to the egg and create a pregnancy. Any activities in the wrong hole do not lead to pregnancy (unless other activities happen "in the heat of the moment"). One can consider using a reliable form of birth control if not wanting a baby, regardless of what sexual activities are going on, as life can be surprising. ...Read more

Period started early blood is dark red almost brown not a stedy flow. Been try to conceive for a year now? I had been on Depo-Provera for a year before trying

See doctor: If you've been trying unsuccessfully for year to get pregnant and haven't, it's time to see a doctor and get a fertility work up. The depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone) prolongs infertility for up to 6 months.... But by a year, it's no longer having an effect on your fertility. 33% of time infertility due to male, so make sure your man is ready to get sperm analysis too. 33% it's female, and 33% it's unexplained. ...Read more
