After: After having a miscarriage it can take months for your hormones to normalize. For this reason, you are having irregular periods (length, consistency, and amount of blood). Typically I tell my patients to wait until they have had 3 normal periods before trying to conceive again. This way I know that their uterine lining is normal and their hormones have stabilized. This will give a woman better odds of sustaining the next pregnancy.
I know it is hard to suffer a miscarriage and want a baby right away, but give your body a little time to recover, and soon enough you will be pregnant again, and hopefully have no problems whatsoever.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Hard to guess, but: 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

Doctor can evaluate: A doctor can check to look for a medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of mucus discharge, of periods, or a missed period on occasion (due to changes in hormones). A pregnancy test can be done after a missed period, or 3 weeks after sex, if worried about pregnancy. If symptoms are repeating with each cycle, an ob-gyn exam may be a good idea. ...Read more

YES: "Twelve days" before your expected period may have been your "fertile" phase and a menstrual period may follow WITH A PREGNANCY! ("uncommon" but not "impossible" REPEAT YOUR PREGNANCY TEST NOW! And if negative FIND a more "certain" way to obtain birth control if that's what you want!

Taking provera (medroxyprogesterone) 10 mg to start period. It comes normal. Two weeks after period is over I start spotting. Why? What can I do about it?

Irregular bleeding: If you took Provera (medroxyprogesterone) to start your cycle, it suggests you have irregular cycles. The Provera (medroxyprogesterone) will cause the lining of the uterus to shed but if you took it without any assessment of what is happening in your ovaries, you may have produced enough natural Progesterone to start bleeding again. It is best to have an ultrasound to see what is going on in your uterus and ovaries to plan accordingly. ...Read more
