Pregnancy (Definition)

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I had a positive home pregnancy test, last night I began spotting, first bright red then a dark brown stringy discharge when wiping. Miscarriage?

Possible: A miscarriage is a possibility but about 40-50% of pregnant women will experience bleeding during early pregnancy. It is time to schedule a visit with an obgyn for evaluation. Tubal pregnancyies can also cause this. Schedule a visit for an exam, sonogram and blood work. ...Read more

2 days ago I had a light pink brownish sticky discharge& it got a little red then stopped& again today it happened again. Could it be pregnancy?

Take a test: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

Does brown discharge that turns red after a week signify pregnancy?

Not necessarily: Pregnancy itself doesn't cause brown or red (bloody) vaginal discharge. Are you sure it isn't a normal period? Or pregnant and now early miscarriage? Any abnormal or unexplained vaginal discharge or bleeding should be professionally evaluated, and you apparently have both. STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia) are other possibilities and very common at your age. See your doctor soon. ...Read more

I'm having brown discharge for 7 days now with small amount of red for last two days. Could that be sign of pregnancy? It is my 27th day of cycle.

I'm having brown discharge for 7 days now with small amount of red for last two days. Could that be sign of pregnancy? It is my 27th day of cycle.

Unlikely: If you did not have unprotected sex since your last period, you are certainly not pregnant. Your symptoms may reflect 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. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

It's my 28th day of cycle, I had sex on 9th day. I'm having brown/red discharge for 8 days now. Is that a sign of pregnancy or something else?

It's my 28th day of cycle, I had sex on 9th day. I'm having brown/red discharge for 8 days now. Is that a sign of pregnancy or something else?

Can do preg. Test: There are no signs or symptoms of pregnancy during the 8 days after sex because it is too soon. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more

3 positive pregnancy test, 2 times for 2 months light bleeding for 3 days, recent positive pregnancy, brown discharge, red spotting, pregnant or not?

3 positive pregnancy test, 2 times for 2 months light bleeding for 3 days, recent positive pregnancy, brown discharge, red spotting, pregnant or not?

Yes: If you have a positive pregnancy test, you're pregnant. Is it a normal pregnancy? The urine test can't tell that. It's possible to have bleeding or spotting when you're pregnant. My recommendation would be to see a doctor to confirm you have an intrauterine pregnancy. They can perform ultrasound as well a check a blood test to see what your pregnancy levels are. Best of luck! ...Read more

Can you bleed heavy when spotting? I have had pregnancy symptoms and then 2 weeks after I had unprotected sex I started having white discharge then brownish discharge then I bleed light pink color then heavy which was dark red then light again then it sto

Spotting: Spotting and vaginal discharge can be associated with pregnancy, however they may represent another issue. If you have not had a normal peroid when due, I suggest you have a pregnancy test done either at home or in your doctor's office. If it is negative, you can wait another week and test again if your period is still late. If you are not pregnant and you continue to have discharge and spotting then you may be dealing with a vaginal infection and/or hormonal imbalance and I recommend making an appointment with your doctor.
Good luck. ...Read more

Possible: In all honesty, only a pregnancy test can reliably tell you whether or not you are pregnant. I would encourage you to consider checking one in the next few days or asking your doctor to order one. This could also be an infection either urinary or vaginal as well. ...Read more
