What does it mean when you have an early period then spotting two weeks later?

Menses: There are a number of potential causes of an early period followed by spotting 2 weeks later. The first question is does the patient have regular cycles and is this abnormal.

PELVIC PAIN: Sounds like a visit to your gynecologist is in order. If symptoms worsen before your GYN can see you; then a visit to the ER might be the only option.

Early period w/ spotting for 3 days (never happens) bloating, gurgling belly, burps, sore itchy breast & sides. Pink spotting after sex. Pregnant?

Get a test!: Pregnancy tests, even over-the-counter ones, are very accurate. Generally, if you conceived more than 14 days ago, the pregnancy test will be positive. There is a chance that you conceived too recently for the test to pick up the low levels of hormone in your system. If you had intercourse less than two weeks ago, then you will need to repeat the test when it has been at least two weeks.

Can I be pregnant?: It all depends. When did you start the bc pills? If you have been on them for some time then it is most likely going to protect you from unwanted pregnancy. If not, then were you ovulating when you had sex? You get pregnant in the five days prior to ovulation during your menstrual cycle.

Early period: It sounds like an early period, which on its own, isn't cause for particular alarm. Hormonal variations and changes can cause this to happen. If you are getting more spotting mid cycle, pelvic discomfort/pain or abnormal discharge, you should get an evaluation by your doc.

Menses: Menses is every 3 to 5 weeks, 9 to 13 a year, lasting 1 to 8 days. Keep menstrual diary and see doctor if your periods does not fall within these parameters. Sometimes is better to wait, unless there is excessive bleeding (>8 pads per day). I general can do home pregnancy test if in doubt. (obviously not sex in 1 year- you won't be pregnant)

See your doc: PCOS is not just about ovaries, it is a " Metabolic disorder leading to obesity, diabetes and cessation of periods.

Had a early period lasting 3-4 days, been having brown very light, almost spotting with sometimes a mix of red for 3-4 more days. Worry? Or no?

Brown can be: Older, deoxygenated blood. You may be experiencing a hormone imbalance. Hopefully, this resolves within this cycle. For continued problems d/w your gynecologist. Take care.

Early period two weeks before due. Than 5 days after period I have brown spotting?

This may be due: To a hormonal imbalance. Brown spotting is usually old blood and tissue being cleaned out of the uterus. If your cycles don't get back on track then consult with your gynecologist.

I had my period Oct 19. Normally have a usual 28-30 day cycle. Tan spotting 3-5 days before expected period. Implantation or early period?

I had my period Oct 19. Normally have a usual 28-30 day cycle. Tan spotting 3-5 days before expected period. Implantation or early period?

Yes: It could be either. Any time you are having unprotected intercourse, pregnancy is a possibility but things as simple as the time change, stress, changes in diet or exercise, and medications taken for other things can disrupt your cycle. When in doubt, do a pregnancy test and if you don't have your period and it is negative, repeat it in 3days to 1 week. Best wishes. Hope this helps.

Spotting: Spotting is 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.
