Brown spotting recently, been on pill for 3 years, changed brands and time I take the pill the last week. Regular sexual intercourse. What do I do?

Cycle irregularity: It's more likely that the brown spotting is just from the change in your meds and timing of your pills. If you haven't missed any pills- I would wait to see if you get your next cycle and if not then do a pregnancy test. The pills even if they are supposed to be same, may be slightly different in strength and it's more likely to be secondary to the change than pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

Is spotting after sexual intercourse normal?

Nope. Testing needed: Spotting after sex could be a sign of an std like chlamydia, gonorrhea or hpv, so testing is important. You'll also need a pap smear. Did I see that you're 49 years old?

I started my period on the 5th of this month. It's the 19th. My boyfriend and I had sexual intercourse last night and this morning I'm spotting?

Question: You're likely spotting due to hormone imbalance, the ratio of Progesterone to estrogen in your female reproductive tract. Another possibility is that there's a low level infection (hpv, for instance) on your cervix that's causing post-coital spotting. An exam with your gynecologist and making sure you're up to date on your pap would be a good idea. Bottom line: see doctor to rule out pre-cancer. ...Read more

I'm 1month pregnant. I had sexual intercourse with my husband. After that I had bright red spottings. Was there any complications?

Probably ok: It is common to spot after sex during pregnancy. Since you are early in your pregnancy, I would suggest no sex for a few weeks. Be sure there is no other bleeding / spotting. Get established with a doctor for prenatal care. And then, maybe have sex again. In the next few days, the spotting should go away. If it becomes heavier call your doctor! ...Read more
