Plan B: There really isn't a "normal" amount of time you bleed with Plan B. It is a large dose of hormones and the only thing that is normal is that you should bleed a few days later. Whether this is 1 or 10 days is up to your body and how it handles a sudden jolt of hormones like that. ...Read more

Ehhh?: In your question, you are stating you had your period after the sex correct? Then you would not be pregnant. If your egg is not fertilized within 12-48 hours, it disintegrates. Approximately 2 weeks later, the thick lining of the uterus is shed, and you begin menstruating again. See the link to educate yourself, Good luck.

My period came 1 day late, and is usually right on time. Its very light and mostly dark brown discharge with a little blood. Could I be pregnant?

Possibly: This is either an unusual beginning to your cycle or an indication that your hormone balance has changed such as occurs with pregnancy, Be examined by your MD for the possibility of infection. If you do not start your usual cycle then you should perform a pregnancy test.
Also a good question would be; are you at risk for pregnancy? This would make your concern more likely. ...Read more

I am on the pill, but missed 2 pills. My period came 1 day late (always ontime), is very light, and mostly dark brown discharge. Can I be pregnant?

I am on the pill, but missed 2 pills. My period came 1 day late (always ontime), is very light, and mostly dark brown discharge. Can I be pregnant?

Not likely: It is possible but not likely. The timing of the missed pills does influence the chance of pregnancy. Missing 2 pills in a row, or missing them mid cycle increases the odds. Missing them just before your expected period would decrease the odds. Consider putting a reminder on your phone or leaving the pills next to your tooth brush to remind you to take them at the same time may help. ...Read more

My period came 8 days early. It was brown and lasted one day now im 12 days late from expected day?

Depends on history: Most people tend to have regular periods every month, occuring every 28-35 days with bleeding lasting for a fixed predictable duration. However, some people can have irregular periods that vary each month. You may elect to wait and see if you just missed your period (could be due to multiple reasons).
If you have been having unprotected sex in the past, you may want to get a pregnancy test. ...Read more

My period came on the same day (10th) for the past two months. But it was late one day today. Should I worry? I've had unprotected sex.

My period came on the same day (10th) for the past two months. But it was late one day today. Should I worry? I've had unprotected sex.

Don't worry: The important thing is that your period came. You aren't pregnant if you had a period that is normal in duration and flow and came about the right time. Its not unusual for your period to come a day early or late. This is just biologic variation and isn't significant. If you don't want to get pregnant, you may want regular contraception such as the pill. Best wishes! ...Read more

Check pg test.: If a period is different, & you have had unprotected sex, check a home pg test, and follow the instructions exactly and make sure the kit has not expired. If it is negative, repeat in 1 week. If still negative, wait and see if your next period is normal, if it is not, see a doc and find out what is going on. Good luck! ...Read more

Unlikely preg. 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

Period came one week late; it's been 5 days since I had an u/s, 11mm endometrium. Is it normal to have light, red spotting instead of a "normal" flow?

Delayed ovulation: This is usually caused by infrequent (not regular) ovulation. The longer you go between periods, the thicker the uterine lining builds. So when you finally do have your menses it can be heavy and long. The spotting you are having is probably not a real period. It sounds like the lining is slowly breaking down and leaking out. BCPs can keep your menses regular. You should check pregnancy test. ...Read more

Take pregnancy test: Many women go through times when their cycles are not regular, or when their bleeding looks a little different than usual (brown spotting, lighter or heavier flow). This may be normal, but, if you are not using contraception, then you may be pregnant. Some women get spotting or vaginal bleeding even when pregnant. So to be sure, go take a home pregnancy test. It is quick, reliable and inexpensive. ...Read more

How many days after sex can you get a pregnancy blood test taken? I had one done 19 days after sex and a late period. Came back negative. Accurate?

How many days after sex can you get a pregnancy blood test taken? I had one done 19 days after sex and a late period. Came back negative. Accurate?

Likely: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

Possibly, not likely: You might do a home test, or see a doctor or obgyn for an evaluation. It is a bit early, but women in their forties may be beginning menopause. Sometimes there are years of irregular periods before they stop. Sometimes that irregularity results in getting pregnant if it makes you think you are no longer fertile. A visit to the doctor can tell you more. ...Read more
