Many things: Many things can cause this including polycystic ovarian syndrome, insulin resistance/diabetes, thyroid disease, some medications, stress, changes in weight, diet, exercise, or schedule, and pregnancy (unlikely with a negative test). See a doctor for a full physical and testing to find out what is going on. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Negative pregnancy test a week and half ago. Experiencing pink discharge for a few days now, period isn't due for a while though. What's wrong with me?

Negative pregnancy test a week and half ago. Experiencing pink discharge for a few days now, period isn't due for a while though. What's wrong with me?

Implantation: What this means really depends upon when your last period was. Check another pregnancy test. Depending upon how long it has been since your last period, the pink discharge could be due to the small amount of bleeding that can occur when the zygote is implanted into the uterus. If the pregnancy test is negative, the discharge could also be your period starting or could be a sign of infection.

Missed period: Consider repeat blood pregnancy it is more sensitive. If you do not get a period in a few days consider sonogram. Also check urine for UTI or glucose (may be first sign of DM)

Hormonal imbalance: 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.

Maybe: It is possible. You can try to take a home pregnancy test after you have missed your period. If it's negative and you're still concerned, test again in 2-3 days...or go to the doctor for a blood test. Another possibility for your symptoms could be an infection. See your doctor if the symptoms persist.

See OB/GYN: Please see your doctor. They can do a more accurate serum pregnancy test and ultrasound if there is question of abnormality. Don't delay! Because if you are pregnant you need prenatal vitamins and good care from your provider

Light pink then brown discharge for 3 days and negative pregnancy test what is causing this?

Tested too early?: Did you miss your period? You may have tested too early. If you are 4-5 days past your period, that would be time to do a home pregnancy test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the kit carefully.

Why am I having light pink/orange discharge when I wipe? I am on the depo shot but missed one in may, unprotected sex in July but got another on August. Now spotting on and off with negative pregnancy test but stomach getting big and hard

Why am I having light pink/orange discharge when I wipe? I am on the depo shot but missed one in may, unprotected sex in July but got another on August. Now spotting on and off with negative pregnancy test but stomach getting big and hard

When in doubt: Just check pregnancy test again. And if you are still not bleeding normally and first pregnancy test was negative, check it again in 1 week. But it is not likely that you are pregnant given significant bleeding. However the timing of the unprotected intercourse is worrisome as it occurred right when you were very vulnerable, and the Depo shot in August likely did not help prevent the pregnancy.

Three day late period brownish and pinkish discharge negative pregnancy test (bought the $1 ones)?

Not sure: You might want to try a different test if you are not sure. The other option would we to see your MD and check a blood test. It may just be that you had a delay in ovulation, and that you period may come a little later than usual. If you haven't started in a week and you test is negative, you may want to check with your MD.

Late: Your period may be late for various reasons. If you are not on birth control, your cycle may not be exactly the same each month. Also stress or change in diet can slow your periods. I would suggest waiting for a few days before seeing your doctor.

I missed my period, only 2-3 days black discharge, negative pregnancy test. What is the reason?

I missed my period, only 2-3 days black discharge, negative pregnancy test. What is the reason?

Common: It is "normal" to have abnormal periods occasionally. The reasons are usually lack of ovulation which can result from stress, illness, medications. I would keep a calendar of your menstrual symptoms - bleeding, spotting, discharge, etc - over the next 2-3 months. If things regulate then no worries. If not, see a GYN.
