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

Classical migraine: You likely just experienced your first migraine with aura, and this has nothing to do with your attempts to have a child. You might let your doctor know about this, as it may repeat during initial part of pregnancy, but will have no effect on the baby. ...Read more

Im 21yo and i missed my period today its 6days late and went to the ER negative pregnant tests no STDs but having pregnancy sympyoms.Is it pregncy?

No: If the blood pregnancy test was negative, you most likely didn't ovulate and your symptoms are due to a relative excess of estrogen. Your doctor can either have you wait and see if you start on your own or give you Progesterone to start your cycle. ...Read more

Waiting: It seems like you're about to have a menstrual cycle. Progesterone is the culprit for the symptoms you describe. Try some Ibuprofen to see if that helps. But these are typical premenstrual type symptoms. ...Read more

I've Missed my period but today I spotted , I've bin tired & Im having Vaginal Cramps like how I would get in my stomach am I pregnant?

Hard to tell: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

I missed my period 6 days and today i had a spot of blood , I don't know if i'm pregnant or could it be implantion bleeding ?

Don’t guess.: Take a test.  they are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  if you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Perimenopause: Likely you are perimenopausal, which can be 5 to 15 years before menopause. You may do this, skip period, etc. Unlikely you are pregnant, but i would still do a pregnancy test, if there is a chance you could be pregnant. ...Read more

I miss my period 5 days already and today is my 6 days but now Im spotting with brownish color whats 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. Can't say which without exam ...Read more

I missed my period for 5 months and I started again today , this time it's watery and brown and I have severe pain!? Is this normal ?

Long time without: 5 months is quite a time with no period. I would see your gynecologist for a checkup and he or she may take some blood work. Stress, weight loss can cause irregular periods. If they return normally it may have worked itself out and the first one after a period of time can have a different pattern to it as you are experiencing. ...Read more

Ask the doctor now: Since you took the pregnancy test at the doctor today, you should ask the doctor what the test result is. Any test done by the doctor or at the doctor's office is the responsibility of the doctor to interpret. Might have been an even better idea if you had asked before leaving the doctor's office. It is still not too late to ask. ...Read more
