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.

Had my period about one week ago and now im spotting brown what could it be? I am sexually active not using any type of protection have regular cycle.

Several things: Mid-cycle spotting can be from a small drop in the hormone level that can occur naturally. I would also consider the possibility of infection, pregnancy, or less common, a growth in the uterus like a polyp or fibroid. The first is not a problem, the others would need to be evaluated by a Gyn ...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. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

I miss my period 5 days already and today is my 6 days but now I'm spotting with brownish color what's this mean?

Depends: The reason that your period is late and u r spotting now could be many things. If u r using hormonal contraception it could be a side-effect or the result of not using it exactly right. If u r having unprotected sex, start with a pregnancy test and, if it is negative, repeat it in 3-5 days. It could also be due to stress, diet, exercise, other medications or diseases.

I only did nothin but fingering. My period came 5 days earlier last month jul. 15 and now is 14 im spotting light brown. Freaking out?

How to get pregnant?: I do not understand the freaking out. I would assume you understand how babies are made: the female has to ovulate an egg and the male has to deposit fresh semen inside of the vagina. It doesn't sound like this scenario is what you dealt with and thus would be impossible to be pregnant. Right? ...Read more

I'm on birth control and im spotting I took a new pack and started it before I ended my period now im spotting can that b the problem to why its happen?

Possibly, yes. If: ..your normal period was interrupted when you started the next pack, some of the menstrual lining which should have been shed during your period may be now causing spotting. In general, it's best to take your pills exactly as directed. If you do so but continue to have spotting, I suggest you make an appt. W/ your GYN doctor. You may need to be switched to a "stronger" pill. Dr. Anne. ...Read more
