My periods are irregular. I had unprotected sex with my husband, my period was 19 days late, very light & only lasted 2 days. Could I be pregnant?
Hard to guess: 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 an expected period (although it's not easy to predict a period in irregular women).

Could stress make my period late and have a very light flow? I've taken 2 negative pregnancy tests and always had irregular cycles.
My period was13 days late and is very light with minimal cramping. Normally very heavy with bad cramps. 4 neg preg tests. Miscarriage? Or ectopic?
Both unlikely: Home pregnancy tests (HPT) will be positive 7-10 days after conception and definitely by 2 weeks after...So a negative HPT would rule out possibility of miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy.

Is there a possibility you could be pregnant? As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear a woman is having a light or missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come.
There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period or have a lighter period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise, weight loss, illness or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to not have your period or if they continue to be irregular, you should contact your doctor. Read more
Been very uncomfortable sleeping on my stomach lately. Last period was late and very light - was reddish-brown. Fatigue, easily irritated. Pregnant?
I have a late period two days today but I e started have very light pinkish like discharge then about two three hours later it was a bright orange?
It could be a normal variation on your cycle, or you could have lost an early pregnancy. About 25% of early pregnancies are lost, mostly due to chromosomal defects in the embryo. Usually the only manifestation is a slightly heavy, delayed period.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Can I be pregnant with 3 week late period but neg home tests then had a very light bleed for three days?
Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Read more

I just had a late period. And now I have a very light brown discharge its been 4 days and still have. Is it normal or I could be preg? .
Brown = old blood: The color of the blood in your menstrual cycle is not useful. It reflects how long the blood has been sitting inside your uterus or at the back of your vagina. Red is new. Brown or black blood is older and the blood products have started to break down. Since your jsut had your period pregnancy is not likely. You can check a home test to confirm. Start birth control if you're having unprotected sex. Read more
