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

Is light bleeding through pregnancy normal ?

Usually not: Occasionally a woman may have frequent light bleeding multiple times during pregnancy. But any bleeding should prompt a woman to get care soon: it may mean a miscarriage, premature labor, an abnormal placenta, or other problems. It should not be ignored.

Nada : It's actually common to have an occasional abnormal cycle. If on ocps, your scenario is very typical. If not on any birth control, wait it out & see if your normal cycle resumes. If it doesn't, check a pregnancy test (if you're sexually active). Consider birth control if you're not planning a family, and take it from there. Overall, i wouldn't worry. You may have just not ovulated this cycle. ...Read more

8 days post ovulation. Cramping and light bleeding. Negative pregnancy test, period isn't due for another week. When can I test?

6 more days: I recommend waiting 14 days after ovulation before testing for pregnancy. So, in your case, wait 6 more days. The cramping and light bleeding can be due to many possibilities but one of them is implantation bleeding (very early stage of pregnancy). ...Read more

Even : Even though vaginal bleeding while pregnant could be from a miscarriage, there are also many other reasons for bleeding - especially in your first trimester. 20-30% of all pregnant women experience some vaginal bleeding in the first trimester. Some causes are harmless such as slight bleeding after sex from a sensitive cervix or implantation bleeding (usually around when you should have had a period). Other causes are more concerning such as a miscarriage or threatened miscarriage (bleeding, but the pregnancy is still there), or bleeding unrelated to pregnancy such as with an infection. Some reasons for bleeding need to be taken care of immediately such an ectopic pregnancy (where the egg implants in the fallopian tube instead of the uterus) or partial miscarriage. In order to know what is going on with you, you should call your doctor. They may do blood work and/or and ultrasound to determine the cause of your bleeding and how to treat you. A good rule of thumb is to call your doctor with any bleeding during pregnancy. Even though some bleeding in the first trimester can be normal, any bleeding in the 2nd or 3rd trimester is always abnormal. Good luck! ...Read more

I bled for two days light bleeding tested for pregnancy 5 days later and it came with a second faint line so am i pregnant?

Yes, only if...: Yes, that's a positive pregnancy test only if on that particular test, a second line means a positive. Pregnancy tests are not all the same, so one has to read and follow the instructions to get a reliable result. If not sure about a result, one can retest one week later. ...Read more
