Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg.

I had my IUD removed 3 weeks ago but only had my period for one day after it got removed and I havnt had a period since could I be pregnant?

I had my IUD removed 3 weeks ago but only had my period for one day after it got removed and I havnt had a period since could I be pregnant?

Yes its possible: I am not sure when you say "you got period 1 day after it was removed - if you mean immediately or now 3 wks later. It wouldn't be unusual to have a little bleeding after iud removal and it may not be real period. Otherwise 3 weeks is a little early to expect a cycle- should be another week. However if you had sex during your high fertility time (last wk) then pregnancy is possible. Read more

Had my period for one day and now it brown what does that mean?

Probably period: Brown equals old blood. It sounds like that was your period although likely not a normal period for you. It is typical to have an "off" period every now and then. This usually corrects itself over the next few cycles. If it continues see your doctor to discuss cycle regulation. Birth control is very effective at regulating the cycle and preventing pregnancy.

Brown Discharge: Read this: http://www. Momswhothink. Com/womens-health/brown-vaginal-discharge. Html.

Had my period for one day on the first... Could I be pregnant? Never had this before. EVER. Been having period for 2 weeks long very light also. But now I have it for one day. It's been 6 days now. Should I take a test? Is this normal?

Had my period for one day on the first... Could I be pregnant? Never had this before. EVER. Been having period for 2 weeks long very light also. But now I have it for one day. It's been 6 days now. Should I take a test? Is this normal?

Maybe. Maybe not.: 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.

Sex and coitus inter: In medical school one of the old saws was what do you call women who rely upon the withdrawal method for birth control? Answer: Mothers! Not at all reliable. If you don't want to get pregnant now you must use a more reliable method. I am not go over all the + s and - s of the different methods but do decide on something more reliable. Read more

Misinformed?: First your symptoms do not represent in any way a sign of early pregnancy. They also do not represent not being pregnant. Physicians never, ever, speculate when it comes to diagnosing pregnancy. If you have missed a period it is time for a pregnancy test. If you have not missed a period yet then it is too soon to test.
