If : If there is a chance you could be pregnant take a pregnancy test. If it is negative, or there is no chance and if the bleeding persists beyond 14 days or so, you should see your doctor. Your doctor can give you a pill called Provera (medroxyprogesterone) to stop thr bleeding. Also a more detailed history and evaluation may be done to determine a cause versus monitoring. Best of luck. ...Read more

What could be wrong if a period comes early and last longer than 10 days?

One-time symptom?: A doctor can check to see if there is a medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of mucus discharge, of periods, or a missed period on occasion.

Let's curbside a doc: Do you mean fertilized egg/zygote transfer into uterus or in vitro fertilization aka ICSI (injecting sperm into egg under microscope)? Totally different. Your best source of info is your Reproductive Endocrinologist, the specialist that is treating you. S/he's got your chart, labs, imaging, etc. If ICSI is the problem, it could be egg or sperm. If implanting is problem, could be other issues also. ...Read more
