Late period, tissue like discharge when period came, really bad cramps, 2 positive preg test + 3 negative. Didn't go docs as was away what's wrong?

Positive to negative: If a woman's pregnancy tests go from positive to negative, and confirmed in this case by having 2 positives and then 3 negatives, it means she was pregnant and then the pregnancy ended. This usually is a very early miscarriage, which is not uncommon in normal women. One can call her Ob-Gyn doctor during regular clinic hours, to see if any follow-up is needed in her particular case. ...Read more

On the nexaplnon. I am going on 12 days late period and today severe cramps for two days. What's going on!? Help?

Severe cramps?: Having late, irregular or missed periods is a common side-effect of Nexplanon. You shouldn't be surprised when this happens. Severe cramping may not have anything to do with the Nexplanon. It could be something else. If it is persistent, you should be evaluated in person by your doc. Best wishes! ...Read more

I have no late period, yesterday I had cramps but not today and little nausea for the pass 3 days?

Period pain: Menstrual pain can be caused by blood clots being forced through the cervical canal, which ends up being painless when the clot is passed. This kind of pain can produce slight nausea, but so can "endometriosis". See your healthcare provider for advice, but at 32, many menstrual symptoms are increased. Oral bcp may assist in reducing these pains. ...Read more

4 days late period and 33 cycle. I used EPT 2 days ago. It says negative. I feel cramps but on and off. Is there tendency that I am pregnant?

4 days late period and 33 cycle. I used EPT 2 days ago. It says negative. I feel cramps but on and off. Is there tendency that I am pregnant?

Maybe: It really depends on when you actually ovulated. If your periods are a little longer apart, it means you ovulate later. If you did ovulate late, perhaps it was too early for the pregnancy test to turn positive. I suggest repeating the pregnancy test if you don't get your period in about a week. ...Read more

Period 11days late, period cramps and vaginal discharge?

Lots of things: Always rule out pregnancy first. However, many things can affect the timing and regularity of one's cycle (e.g. Weight changes, diet, stress, etc.). Don't stress. Keep an eye on it for now. The vaginal discharge is very non-specific and probably (normal) related to any hormonal shifts. If the changes are persistent for more than 5-6 cycles, see your ob/gyn. ...Read more

On top of my late period and cramps here and there I'm having white discharge my last period was December 10 its now jan 23 what does this mean?

Possible pregnancy: If your period is late, the first thought is possible pregnancy. Check a pregnancy test and, if it is negative and your period still hasn't started, repeat it in 3-5 days. If it is still negative it will be time to look into other possibilities such as meds, diseases such as thyroid disease, diabetes/ insulin resistance, PCOS, adrenal disease, or pituitary tumors, stress, exercise, weight change, etc. ...Read more

11 days late period. Had protected sec. Home preg tests (3) were negative. Thin white discharge with mild cramps. Pregnant?

Unlikely: If you did the tests correctly and the results were negative at 11 days after missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. You may repeat the test in 3-4 days if you do not get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Clear mucus discharge w/ a bit of blood whn urinated on the 3rd of may had small cramps tht day. I'm a day late period was due on may 5th. Why?

Vaginal discharge: Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. Testing is important to determine the treatment. If you think you are pregnant then take a home test. ...Read more

Cramping for 2wks prior to 3day late period, no spotting, lotiony CM for past wk. Cramps are light & are off & on past couple days. BFN. Still pregnant?

BFN?: Did you have a confirmed positive pregnancy test?
If so and have had no vaginal bleeding then you are most likely still pregnant. If you mean "Big Fat Negative"on a pregnancy test, then you are not pregnant. I can't explain why you took 2 tests and got different results. If you do not get your period in another week, take another test. See your doctor for severe pain or heavy bleeding. ...Read more

Late period, 2 hpt negative, mild cramps (pull-like), wet feeling, cravings, nauseous. Could I be pregnant?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. 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. Sounds like just a late period. ...Read more

Many possible causes: Pregnancy is only one of many causes of a missed period. For example, thyroid problems, weight gain or loss, stress, intense exercise, dieting, etc. Can all make you miss a period. If it happens once, I wouldn't worry but if it becomes a pattern, its best to see an Ob/Gyn and find out why its happening. Best wishes! ...Read more

Was 1 day late (period) 2nd day was a lot of cramps with very little spotting. 3rd day, heavier spotting but no pd flow! Am I pregnant?

Maybe, maybe not...: 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 (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

Period 2 weeks late. 4 negative pregnant tests. No cramps but very gassy. Could the tests be wrong? Took them 1-2 weeks after late period.

Late period: It's hard to say why it happens, but sometimes we are just late for our period. Even if it's never happened to you before, it could be happening now. Things like medications, stress, travel, changes in your weight, can all cause a late period. If your pregnancy test is negative, repeat it once per week until you get your period, to be safe. If no period for a whole month, I would see your gyn doc. ...Read more
