You may: You may retest if you wish, however, if you had a period, you are highly unlikely to be pregnant. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

Y am I spotting before and after my period, and after sex? I just finished my period 3-7-13. So, when will I most likely ovulate?

Y am I spotting before and after my period, and after sex? I just finished my period 3-7-13. So, when will I most likely ovulate?

Hard to say: If you can discern a regular cycle out of that pattern, you probably do ovulate around cd 14 from the beginning of the real bleeding. Spotting especially right before the cycle is indicative of a polyp or fibroid in or near the cavity. Spotting after and with intercourse can be adenomyosis or a cervical problem. All of this should be evaluated by your doctor. Good luck.

Sounds normal: It sounds like you are still having regular cyclic monthly periods. This would be normal. Brown just means old blood. It turns brown when it has been sitting at the back of the vagina. Birth control would help regulate your cycles but if you are trying to conceive you may want to hold off for now.

Why does spotting occurs before or after period? Is it a sign of pregnancy mostly? Or implantation bleeding? What is it actually? Both?

Why does spotting occurs before or after period? Is it a sign of pregnancy mostly? Or implantation bleeding? What is it actually? Both?

Neither one: 99% of spotting before or after a period is breakthrough bleeding. Before the period it's usually Progesterone breakthrough, after it's more likely estrogen breakthrough, but combinations are possible. A missed period is a sign of pregnancy nothing else is, "implantation bleeding" is mostly a myth.

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.
