Patience: 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. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Don't panic: Doubt it's a medical problem. Any woman can have a change in their period cycles. The fact that the bleeding is getting lighter is a good sign that it will stop soon. You don't mention any abnormal pain, fevers, or discharge, so just stay calm and let's see if the bleeding stops today. It's good that you always use protection! ...Read more
