Need to see doctor: First, you need to do a pregnancy test to see if you are actually pregnant. Bleeding in pregnancy is never normal but does not necessarily mean anything bad. It could be normal implantation, a miscarriage or a pregnancy outside your uterus in your tube (an ectopic pregnancy). If your test is positive, you should see a physician as soon as possible for an ultrasound ...Read more

Not likely: Have you had a PAP smear? If not, get one. You are still young enough to get HPV vaccine and should get it.

Not sure what your: ...question is, but, if you're having sex with a guy, the first thing you should do is check a pregnancy test. If there's no possibility of pregnancy or the test was negative, your hormones may just be out of whack. In that case, give your hormones a chance to get their act together. If your next menstrual cycle is also messed up, then see your gyro. Hope this helps. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Hi I just had a baby 2 months ago I am still having light bleeding and passing clots. It mainly happens after intercourse or when drinkin hot liquids.

It is unusual: To be passing large clots. I assume u r breast feeding. The ovaries may be starting to function again and this will normalize but you may benefit from the birth control pill. Bleeding severity is notably subjective. I doubt seriously that you have retainment of placental tissue as the source but you may have fibroids, etc. I think u should get checked along with a blood count and hcg. ...Read more

Check your premises: If you're bleeding from the uterus 3 days after "ovulation, " then you're probably not ovulating. See a doctor who can rule out pregnancy, STDs, cervical bleeding, and/or anovulation as causes of your irregular bleeding. ...Read more

I had light bleeding with small clots for two weeks after ten days of period. And now I am having heavy bleeding with cramps. What would be.??

It depends on the: Rest of your recent menstruation history. If you have had irregular bleeding in the past or recently stopped hormone or contraception pills, or implants, then that would explain why your periods are changing. If you have had nothing to alter your periods, then other things like nutrition, stress, weight change, exercise, weather, mood can also play a role. I would wait a week to see change. ...Read more

NO: If you have 5 pregnancy tests that are negative, you are not pregnant. Some women can have delayed cycles for several reasons. Stress, travel, weight change, moving, a new relationship etc can do this. Some women have hormonal cysts that resolve on its own can do the same. It is still good to get checked if it recurs again. ...Read more

5 days late on period light bleeding, brown gooey clots and severe lower abdominal pain, tender to touch nipples?

Could be serious.: If you are at risk for pregnancy, it is possible that you are pregnant. But the severe abdominal pain makes me concerned that you could have a tubal or ectopic pregnancy. Please get evaluated! You will get a pregnancy test, an exam, and perhaps an ultrasound in the process. Because a tubal pregnancy can be potentially life-threatening, please be seen. Remember, it's my job to worry! Lgromkomd. ...Read more
