Your bleeding: You said you did not get your period but also that you are bleeding. It seems like you are having your period now unless I am misunderstanding your question. If you want to regulate your cycles and if you do not want to get pregnant then see a doctor for birth control. ...Read more

Implantation bleeding 2 months ago, but continues to have a 5 days period. Had a negative pregnancy test. Confused!! Did I test too early?

Implantation bleeding 2 months ago, but continues to have a 5 days period. Had a negative pregnancy test. Confused!! Did I test too early?

Not necessarily: Implantation bleeding is not a reliable sign. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow 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.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Period is 12 days late. Had what appeared to be implantation bleeding around the time my period should start. Now I'm experiencing brown spotting and some cramping. So confused with what's happening.

HPT: You either have a missed/irregular/painful period, or your are pregnant, First step is to get a pregnancy test at the drugstore and test yourself. The test should reliably indicate If you are pregnant. If you are, and you are having cramping/spotting you should see your obgyn doctor to make sure you don't have an ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more

Irregular bleeding: 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

Yes: Specially in women between 40 and 55 it is common to have short periods. This is what we call perimenopause. As women get older there cycle pattern may change month to month.

Positive test, heavy bleeding no cramps, neg blood test, few weeks positive again, heavy bleeding, neg test, but very sore breasts what's going on? Confused

That is confusing!: If you are having heavy bleeding with positive pregnancy test at home then I would go back to the OB/GYN for a recheck. They may want to check your blood hormone levels several days in a row to determine the actual level of hormones and whether they are going up or down. An ultrasound may also be necessary to see what is happening inside the uterus (pregnancy, fibroid, abnormal growth) ...Read more

My period had stopped and I had clean tampons for a day. But today, two days later, it started again with heavy bleeding and lots of clots.

My period had stopped and I had clean tampons for a day. But today, two days later, it started again with heavy bleeding and lots of clots.

Can be normal: Menstruation sometimes does not act exactly as we would want it. So sometimes periods can start and stop then start again. A period is the shedding of the lining of the uterus and sometimes it is not complete. I would be concerned if the period continues for more than a week (>7 days), or if there is increasing pain/fever. If there is you should go to your physician for a check up. ...Read more

My period has just finished but wasn't a normal one it was light brown in the beginning got two days of heavy bleeding test it or normal period?

Normal: What you described is more or less a normal period. If you are concerned about pregnancy, that is very unlikely.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.

Why did my period last for 4 days then it stopped and then start again with heavy bleeding?

Why did my period last for 4 days then it stopped and then start again with heavy bleeding?

I had a period and it lasted a week then I come on again 2 weeks then stopped then 2days later I started bleeding but heavy bleeding every time?

Breakthrough: Breakthrough bleeding is common, but also can be a sign, most commonly of hormone imbalance. Other reasons for bleeding when it's not time for your period are thyroid problems, weight (being too heavy or thin). Sometimes women can bleed so heavily that they become anemic. It might be a good idea to see a doctor to get a thorough history and check blood count, find out why irregular period ...Read more

I had the implanon taken out approximately eight weeks ago. Last month I took three morning after pills, I then got my period like normal. Except now, two weeks later, I have heavy bleeding like a period again. Could this possibly be a result of all the h

Unpredictable: It is possible that amount of hormone received from the 3 morning after pills may have made your uterine lining fragile and therefore cause bleeding. During this bleeding, it is possible that you ovulating and in the week where is the egg wasn't fertilized, you then experienced another please which was more likely your period. Over time your body will normalize. Consider better birth control thoug ...Read more

Who knows?: Implantation bleeding is actually pretty unusual. That would be pretty late for implantation bleeding which should happen about 10 days after impregnation. If you were pregnant you should probably have a positive pregnancy test by now. Use a home pregnancy test, if it is negative, check again in a week. If it is still negative you have your answer. ...Read more

Period bleeding with weird smell 3 days after taking take action? Is that normal or can I still be pregnant? I'm confused with this please help.

Period bleeding with weird smell 3 days after taking take action? Is that normal or can I still be pregnant? I'm confused with this please help.

Well let's think...: You had unprotected sex. You took a hormonal prep, that interferes with pregnancy. And you are having vaginally bleeding only a few days post intercourse so pregnancy is not a likely explanation. Unprotected sex however can result in transmission of infection, and plan B and the others DO NOT protect you from those. I'd say bad smell = infection until prove otherwise. Time for a pelvic exam. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
