Repeat the test: If you are trying to get pregnant and your period is late or abnormal and the pregnancy test is negative, it could be because you did the test too early so repeat the test 3-5 days later. If it is still negative this could just be the normal variation from cycle to cycle. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Very light bleeding on period and i'm not pregnant. I usually bleed a lot so this seems abnormal. What could it be?

Many causes: A lighter than usual period may result from physical or emotional stress, or an abrupt and significant increase in exercise or a dietary change. Although you are young for this one, you might be entering perimenopause, although this is premature to judge based on 1 period. May be a variant of normal, may indicate another endocrine problem - eg thyroid. Something to track and report to your doc. ...Read more

Take a test: Urine pregnancy test that you get at the drugstore are very safe and accurate. It doesn't sound like it, it sounds like you are having some irregular bleeding, but if you had unprotected intercourse, it's best to check and be sure. If you're not pregnant, the period is likely long due to fluctuations in your hormone levels. If it bothers you, you can always talk to doc about rx for birth control. ...Read more

Normal variation: In a 28 day cycle, you should ovulate 14 days after your prior cycle and 14 days before your next cycle but their is some normal variation in cycles so this may be completely normal. If you are having unprotected intercourse and concerned about pregnancy, however, I would advise a pregnancy test and, if it is negative, repeat it in 3-5 days. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Maybe: 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

I took plan B and for 2 weeks had light bleeding before expected period. No period that month though, just the light bleeding. Should I be concerned?

Pregnancy test: Since plan B isn't 100% effective especially if taken after 24 hours from intercourse, I would start by checking a pregnancy test. Plan B may cause some irregular bleeding for a cycle or so, but the most likely cause is you're pregnant. ...Read more
