I have lower back pain. I have had back pain for several months but just within the last couple of weeks it has got worse. I have also been spotting when I go to the bathroom. I also have a discharge. I get in so much pain that I can't move. I thought tha

Have: Have you seen a doctor for this problem? The spotting and discharge may or may not be related. First and foremost if you can't move due to the pain then you need a medical evaluation right away which will likely include x-rays and eventually an mri. You may be dealing with a herniated disc or degenerative disc disease or even kidney stones. The spotting could possible be blood from the urine or with discharge can be a vaginal infection. You need urine analysis and culture and the above tests mentioned to rule out urinary tract infection, pyelonephritis, and kidney stones. You should have a pelvic exam and testing to rule out vaginal infections as well.
Good luck. ...Read more

2 weeks after my period I started been experiencing 2 days of light spotting followed by 2 days of heavy spotting with clots ranging from dime to quarter size as well as lower back pain and cramping should I be concerned that it may be miscarrying or can

Dysfunctional clots: Although if your "period" was on time, and normal as usual, it is unusual for clots to occur two weeks after a cycle at age 28. Irregular spotting and clots with cramping can indicate an ectopic pregnancy, and your "period" might just have been bleeding and not a "real period". Get a serum HCG test, and if negative, see your healthcare provider for an exam and ultrasound. ...Read more

What can be causing lower back pain and cramping...with possible spotting?

Now, if you just missed your period I'd wait a few more days. Still may come ...Read more

Depo-provera: "Progesterone only" contraception has an unpredictable effect on ovulation, at times inhibiting it from being "regular". This produces a similarly "unpredictable" effect on the lining of the uterus, which results in irregular shedding of the lining, causing varying degrees of "cramping/spotting". ...Read more

6w5d preg. Ultrasound was fine. Brown spotting for 1w. Cramping and lower back pain in lower left side (front and back). Should I be worried?

When was sonogram: If the sonogram was done before you began having spotting and pain then it probably should be repeated. If the sonogram was done after the episode of bleeding and spotting then it sounds like things are going ok so far. Keep your follow up appointments with your Obgyn to help guide you through pregnancy. ...Read more
