Remember to ign ore bleeding in the first 3 months on the new pill. ...Read more

Subchoronic bleeding measured 7.5x2.0x5.4cm will it cause me to miscarry? Been having dark brown discharge for 2 week. Does it mean its draining out?

Subchoronic bleeding measured 7.5x2.0x5.4cm will it cause me to miscarry?  Been having dark brown discharge for 2 week. Does it mean its draining out?

Draining: Subchorionic hemorrhages are very common, and they do not have to cause a miscarriage! if you have brown discharge that is probably old blood draining. If you had bright red bleeding, i would worry that the hemorrhage is active. Brown is better. But either way everything could be okay, so be optimistic. Let your doctor know if you have bright red bleeding or cramping. ...Read more

It : It is common to have some spotting between periods for the first 3-4 months after you start a birth control pill. You may also have spotting if you miss a pill or take a pill late. If none of these is true for you (since you've been on seasonique 4+ years), and you are just having light spotting, it is unlikely anything dangerous. Some women will spot occasionally while on birth control pills and the reason is largely unknown. If you are having heavy bleeding, you should give your doctor a call. If you have not missed a pill, then there is a 98% chance that you are not pregnant - which are pretty good odds. ...Read more

I got a positive hpt result a few days ago. I'm not slightly having brown discharge bleeding is this normal? Was it a false positive?

Go to the doctor.: The best thing you can do here is to go to your doctor and get examined. If you're having discharge with a positive hpt, you might have a false positive, in which case you'll get your period, or you can be positive with some discharge due to being active, or some other issue. In any case, your best course of action is to see your dr. For a repeat test and exam to rule out any issues. ...Read more
