Possibilities: If your periods have always been regular, and now this is happening, you might be approaching menopause. Most women begin having some irregular periods 1-2 years before their periods totally stop. So this is one possibility. Another possibility is that stress has caused the irregularity to the periods. If this is the case then the cycles should return to normal in month or two once stress is over. ...Read more

Can be normal: i would have to get more history to answer your question , and you age , menstural history etc., if you are saying you had 5 NEG pregnancy tests and you are still late and this is new for you , than you can wait , some times stress, medications etc can cause a person to have delayed period. however if your pregnancy test were postive than it is a different management ...Read more

One day after peak ovulation based on clear blue digital. I wiped this morning and had very light pink spotting. What's going on?

Drop in estrogen: After the LH surge (hormonal trigger for ovulation) there is a natural decrease in the estrogen level. This can slightly destabilize the uterine lining leading to spotting. It should resolve quickly. If it recurs monthly then I would recommend you have an evaluation of your uterine cavity for polyps or fibroids. Also consider a thin uterine lining especially if you are taking Clomid/Clomiphene ...Read more

Your hormones: are likely in flux for whatever reason, and you would need to be patient to see if things would settle down. Menstrual fluctuations are affected by many different factors, including nutrition, psychological state of mind, stress, infections/ illnesses, etc. If things continue to be irregular or unpredictable in the next couple of months, check pregnancy test twice 1 week apart. ...Read more

Late Period: Hello Fred595, The criteria for diagnosis of nonsurgical menopause (meaning menopause that is not due to sugery such as hysterectomy) is the lack of menstrual flow for 1 year. While these symptoms may potentially be a sign of early menopause, there are many other causes of late periods, including pregnancy, and if these symptoms continue I would recommend seeing a gynecologist. ...Read more

I have always had a normal heavy 6 day period. This month it came very late(1 week) but I only bled for one day then light pink spotting, am I preg?

I have always had a normal heavy 6 day period. This month it came very late(1 week) but I only bled for one day then light pink spotting, am I preg?

Maybe not, but...: 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 (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period or after having a "weird" period. ...Read more

Does pink, mid-cycle spotting indicate ovulation? If so, does it happen before, during or after ovulation? I have 26 day cycle with one pink spot cd11

Does pink, mid-cycle spotting indicate ovulation? If so, does it happen before, during or after ovulation? I have 26 day cycle with one pink spot cd11

No, it: Does not indicate ovulation. An ovulation predictor kit does, though. If spotting indicated ovulation, it would be easier to tell people when they are ovulating. Under status it says "doesn't know" under pregnancy. You may wanna check a pregnancy test. Gd luck. ...Read more

Took Plan B One Step after missing 1 dose (1 day) of BC. Now spotting a light orange/pink color (only when wiping).Normal or Implantation bleeding?

Plan B effect: Plan b is essentially taking a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns in your body to delay or present ovulation. An abnormal period afterwards is not surprising. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. ...Read more

There : There is a chance you could be pregnant. If not done so previously try taking an early prediction pregnancy test or see your doctor for testing. If you have vaginal odor, itching, or irritation then you may be dealing with a vaginal infection which would also warrant a trip to your doctor. Also this could be the start to your period, and your normal flow could start soon. Good luck. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex 3 weeks ago on a Thursday and now I'm having cramps in my lower abdomen and today I had spotted and now it quit is this normal? The spotting color was light red or pink but it lasted one day what does this mean??

I had unprotected sex 3 weeks ago on a Thursday and now I'm having cramps in my lower abdomen and today I had spotted and now it quit is this normal? The spotting color was light red or pink but it lasted one day what does this mean??

Infection? PID?: This is suspicious for a pelvic inflammatory disease (PID, fallopian tube infection), and you are at peak age for chlamydia and gonorrhea, the most common causes. That you spotted today and now are not doesn't mean that symptom has "quit"; there may be more spotting. PID is dangerous if not diagnosed and treated promptly. See a doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more

It happens sometimes: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. ...Read more
