Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

A few early pregnancy symptoms, followed by cramps and bleeding for 2 days still cramping but no bleeding anymore. Negative pregnancy test.

Irregular ovulation: The cramps and bleeding would be common events that occur around the time of ovulation. Given these symptoms, a delayed period and a negative pregnancy test, consider that this is the cause. Check a pregnancy test in a week to be sure you are not pregnant. ...Read more

I took 2 pregnancy test 3 weeks ago & they both said positive. Now I'm bleeding super heavy, have awful cramps&throwing up, am I having a miscariage?

Could be: You need a medical evaluation now because of the heavy bleeding and pain. If you are SOAKING a pad an hour or more, then you need to be seen now. That level of bleeding can be dangerous. Also concerned with your "cramps" that this pain could be tubal pregnancy. You need to be seen right a way. Please get to hospital ER right away. ...Read more

May be infection: If your discharge smells, your uterus may be infected. You should see your doctor for evaluation. They will probably do a pelvic exam (using a speculum) and check the discharge, then do a bimanual exam. Checking the uterus with both hands (one in the vagina and one on the abdomen) allows the doctor to see if there is tenderness or abnormal size of the uterus. ...Read more

Been having heavy bleeding, blood clotting and cramps and did a pregnancy test and it said positive twice, could this be a miscarriage?

Could be: It is likely that you had spontaneous loss of an early pregnancy, which is not uncommon. About 25% of early pregnancies are lost, mostly due to chromosomal defects in the embryo. Usually the only manifestation is a slightly heavy, delayed period.
Wish you good health.

Should I go to ER if I had a faint positive pregnancy test result and the next day (today)started bleeding heavily along with unusually painful cramps?

No: That does not sound like an emergency and you should be able to see you doctor. If you are bleeding excessively (more than a pad per hout for more than an hour) you do need to be seen and may need to have a d&c. ...Read more

Did a pregnancy test very faint positive then has bleeding and cramps massive back pain and heavy sore chest am I pregnant?

Did a pregnancy test very faint positive then has bleeding and cramps massive back pain and heavy sore chest am I pregnant?

Likely: If you did the test correctly and it was positive, even if faintly, you are likely to be pregnant. However the bleeding may be your regular period due to loss of an early pregnancy. You should repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

Honestly: Honestly the only way to know what is going on is to have an ultrasound. The likely explanation here is that you have retained some products of conception that were not completey loss when you were bleeding. These remnants can result in a small hormone rise. As far as getting pregnant again, if you ovulated and had unprotected sex it is possible.
You need to be re-evaluated.
Good luck. ...Read more

I am roughly 5 5 wk pregnany and just today started bleeding brown blood it s heavier than spotting but lighter than a period I have no cramping should I be concerned about a miscarriage?

Common: I tell patients that any bleeding in pregnancy is not normal, but common. You should let your OB know if it becomes heavier or if there is any associated pain or cramps. Many pregnant patients spot or have dark blood and continue to have normal healthy babies. Check with your OB & best of luck to you. An ultrasound would be reassuring. ...Read more

Can you tell me all about what could cause light bleeding and some cramping durring pregnancy?

Possibl implantation: Many causes for bleeding during pregnancy, but all are abnormal, and require investigation. One not too worrisome cause of light bleeding in early pregnancy is termed "implantation bleeding"--a small amount of bleeding that occurs when the embryo implants in the uterus that occurs around the time of an expected period. Bleeding can also herald a miscarriage. See your doctor. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor.
