I have been having light brown discharge with a light bleeding when i wipe. Pregnancy test said negative. What could it be?

Probably period: The brown discharge was likely a light period. Brown = old blood. Repeat a home pregnancy test to make sure you are not pregnant. An "off" period from time to time is very common and usually corrects itself in the next few cycles. If it continues schedule a visit for testing. ...Read more

Can hydatiform mole occur even if am not pregnant?Also dint have successfull pentration even though we tried.Lab pregnancy urine test is +ve.Not sure

Probably pregnant: It's possible to get pregnant even without penetration. Enough seminal fluid can sometimes get into the vagina and cervix to get you pregnant. So if your pregnancy test is positive, it's likely true. A hydatidiform mole is much less likely, but possible. See your doctor, and some blood HCG levels can help figure it all out. ...Read more

Urine pregnancy test: I would start with any of the over the counter urine pregnancy tests. These are very accurate. If you were interested in a blood test, doctors usually order a "qualitative b-hcg" test. But most people just start with a home pregnancy urine test. Best of luck to you! ...Read more

How soon can I: 1. Have accurate pregnancy test at lab? A week after sex maybe? 2. Visit obgyn to check my pregnancy?

How soon can I:
1. Have accurate pregnancy test at lab? A week after sex maybe?
2. Visit obgyn to check my pregnancy?

Patience is a must.: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
