Hello, I missed my period last week and also had very light brown spotting for four days. Could I be pregnant. Is it to early to test?

Don’t guess.: Take a test.  they are the same tests used in a doctors 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

Could I be pregnant if I had sex on the last day of my period and was only on my period for four days and my boyfriend percum in me?

Could I be pregnant if I had sex on the last day of my period and was only on my period for four days and my boyfriend percum in me?

Unlikely...: Pregnancy is not likely to happen from sex on the 4th day of a period because that is too early in a woman's cycle (the egg is not ready yet). However, life is never exact, so women can be surprised sometimes. One can do a urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex, or 1 week after missing a regular period. ...Read more

My last four periods have been only 3 days long and irregular stopping and starting during the period. We've never had protected sex can I be pregnant?

Yes: If you haven't had protected sex, there's always the possibility you could be pregnant. Even with protection, there's a possibility you could become pregnant. Periods lasting only 3 days and with irregular stopping and starting can be normal. Check a home pregnancy test if you're worried. ...Read more

Not Pregnant: I am not sure, but I would operate under the assumption that you know the answer to your specific question. Viable pregnancy stops vaginal bleeding. You have something going on and that is what you should ask about. You are not pregnant. Bleeding is never a sign of pregnancy. Now, are you getting some hormone fluctuations due to early menopause? Is there something stressful in your life? ...Read more

My period started 3 days late, then lasted four days, could I still be pregnant when I always have a 28 day cycle?

I'm four days late for my period. I took a pregnant test two days ago and negative. My last period was march 7.

Not Pregnant: You are probably not pregnant then and have missed a period. You did not ask a question. But, this is one of the most common reasons for patients to visit their doctor. Most missed periods are due to extremes such as dieting, stress, hormones, extreme exercise, obesity. They usually resolve within one month. If you feel you could be pregnant due to sex during ovulation then test again. ...Read more

My partner had her period two weeks ago and we have had intercourse twice in the last four days and she is telling me she might be pregnant can she??

Ovulation: The key to her fertility is when she ovulates. This is usually day 13 or 14 in a normal cycle. Sperm, to cause pregnancy, have to be in the vagina prior to ovulation. That means days eight to 13 are the highest risk days for sperm to cause pregnancy. She cannot possibly feel or know she is pregnant until a new fetus is about fourteen days past the day it was conceived. I doubt she is pregnant. ...Read more

I had my IUD removed almost two weeks ago had my period once and haven't had it again yet it's been almost two weeks......Also the last four days I have been having headaches on and off all day could I possibly be pregnant or is it something else?

Two weeks?: You state that you had one period after the iud was removed. Most women have one period a month. Just wait a while longer. Two weeks is probably just not long enough of an interval. As far as headaches, I think you'll have to figure on something else. If you're concerned about pregnancy, take a test. The paragard iud's effect is reversed immediately upon removal, so you can get pregnant quickly. ...Read more

My period has been regular for the last four months and now it's 17 days late and a couple days ago the pregnancy test was negative what's going on?

Period late: If you are at risk for pregnancy then that is still possible and perhaps the test is not positive because too early in the pregnancy, urine dilute, or rarely a test kit that does not work. It is also common to have a month when you did not ovulate and the normal trigger for the bleeding (a drop in progesterone) does not happen. See a clinic for help. ...Read more

As: As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a fertile woman is having a 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 and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period. Did you take your test too soon?

There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give your doctor or your ob/gyne a call. Good luck! ...Read more

I had my period and it lasted 2 days longer than usual. Four days later started my period again. Not on birth control, and I know I am not pregnant?

Hormone: This sounds like a hormone imbalance or breakthrough bleeding. Sometimes this occurs because estrogen and Progesterone (your 2 female hormones produced in ovary) are not in the right balance to each other. Sometimes it's due to pituitary or thyroid issues. And lasly, sometimes due to weight (too thin/heavy). If bothers you can consider birth control pills to help regulate. Best of luck. ...Read more

Unprotected Sex: It is entirely possible. Even if your partner didn't ejaculate, sperm can be transmitted in the fluid that often precedes ejacualtion. A good home pregnancy test kit can show positive results beginning at the time of the first missed period, which is where you are currently. ...Read more

I've been trying to get pregnant for the past four months and last month I had sex right after and when I was ovulating but I got my period why?

Complex Process: Getting pregnant takes a very complex process to work almost perfectly. Using ovulation kits is a great idea to know when you are ovulating. Then trying to have sex every other day for several days once you have ovulated is best time. If after 6 mo of trying and no pregnancy, then time for you and your partner to have a medical evaluation to determine if any problems present preventing pregnancy. ...Read more

There: There are several reasons why patients can stop getting periods. Pregnancy must be ruled out first if there is any possibility. Dietary changes such as malnutrition can cause missed periods.

Anytime: Anytime you miss your period and you are sexually active, there is a chance that you could be pregnant. To answer your question, some women can have one cycle while pregnant, which is not a real cycle but rather bleeding due to implantation of the embryo into the uterus (womb). If in fact you are pregnant, your doctors will be able to tell you exactly how far along you are with a simple ultrasound.
All the best. ...Read more
