When u have your period three weeks early does that mean you can b pregnant? And if so can u please tell me when is the best time to take a test?

No, yes: Early period doesn't signify pregnancy. The Best time to take pregnancy test is 4 weeks after last menstrual period (lmp). In other words, check after you've missed your period. If you want to get pregnant but your test is negative, go see your family doc for prenatal vitamins. If test is negative & you don't want to get pregnant, talk to your doc about birth control. Then make partner wear condom. ...Read more

If you get your period early after taking emergency contraceptive and spot for a few days, does that mean you're not pregnant?

Spotting w Plan B: No, it's not possible to be sure that you're not pregnant without doing a pregnancy test. Irregular bleeding is very common after taking any of the emergency contraceptives.

Using the first urine of the morning is most accurate. ...Read more

Can u test positive for pregnancy after 2weeks of having sex? What if your period comes early and is only 2days

Can u test positive for pregnancy after 2weeks of having sex? 
What if your period comes early and is only 2days

Yes. Better at 3 wk.: A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened). If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman continues to have her NORMAL regular periods, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

What does it mean when your spotting after your period? I've been having spotting after my period for the first time and it really concern mean a lot, so I'm just asking could i be pregnant or is it normal for that to be happening?

First : First of all, make sure that your bleeding is coming from your vagina and not your urethra or rectum. If you insert a tampon and there is blood on it, then you know the bleeding is coming from wither your uterus, cervix or vagina.

If you are pre-menopausal, there are many causes for vaginal bleeding not related to your period such as:
— iud or Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) use
— stopping or starting birth control pills containing estrogen
stress
hormone problems such as with the thyroid
— injury/trauma of the vagina from intercourse or a sexually transmitted disease
uterine fibroids or polyps
— cervical injury, infection or rarely, cancer
pregnancy (implantation bleeding)

The best way to sort out what could be happening is to call your doctor. If you are bleeding heavily, call immediately, otherwise you can call during office hours. A careful exam can help show whether your spotting is anything to worry about. Good luck! ...Read more
