I have gotten light early periods two months in a row. This second period is very light and is 5 days early. Is it possible I am pregnant?

I have gotten light early periods two months in a row. This second period is very light and is 5 days early. Is it possible I am pregnant?

Unlikely, 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. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Unlikely: Most women will occasional have "anovulatory" period occasionally snd will be late. How late are we talking? If one two days OK to wait another day or two and see if it comes. If not it could have been to soon to check for pregnancy and would repeat test. If we are talking about a longer time, it should be evaluated further. Good luck, but you on not need it and will be fine. ...Read more

Take a test: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections, hormonal changes, polyps and fibroids can cause spotting. If concerned for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle.

Luck: Some women are lucky enough to have light periods. Others suffer from heavy painful periods. Each person will be different. If you are someone with light periods that is great. If your periods are coming in a regular cyclic pattern then this is likely normal. ...Read more

My period came 3 days early light and pink it never comes early. I had unprotected sex. My period is never this light. What could it be? Implantation?

My period came 3 days early light and pink it never comes early. I had unprotected sex. My period is never this light. What could it be? Implantation?

Could be: Light bleeding 3 days before your period is due could be implantation since you had unprotected sex but it also could be some of the normal variation in cycles. To know for sure, once your regular period is late, check a pregnancy test and repeat it in 3-5 days if it is negative. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Miscarried 2 months ago. This is my second period after miscarriage. It came early and extremely heavy. Is this normal?

Miscarried 2 months ago. This is my second period after miscarriage. It came early and extremely heavy. Is this normal?

Yes it may be: normal as your body is trying to get back into the normal cycle that your ovaries/ hormonal system dictates. And you should have heavy bleeding after weeks of being pregnant. Just monitor your periods over the next couple of months and if the ship doesn't right itself then, go see your GYN or family physician for help. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

My period is a week late. Pregnancy test was negative. My period is never late. What's going on?

Ie – a period may come on a few days earlier or later and maybe heavier or lighter depending on the endometrium lining. It may come continuously or with intermittent spotting. These are variation of a normal process ...Read more

My period is over a week late and still getting a negative preg test. My cycle is always normal. Can I still be pregnant?

My period is over a week late and still getting a negative preg  test. My cycle is always normal. Can I still be pregnant?

Probably not: Urine pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more
