Possibly: Since your periods vary some it is possible you checked the pregnancy test too early to detect a pregnancy. Wait 3-5 more days then check again. If your pregnancy test is still negative then and your period still hasn't come then you could get a blood pregnancy test, which is more accurate to detect early pregnancies. ...Read more

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.

Hi! Should I see a doctor about bright red spotting instead of period and negative pregnancy test one week later?

Hi! Should I see a doctor about bright red spotting instead of period and negative pregnancy test one week later?

Not necessarily: The main reason for light periods is a change in hormone levels. Causes for what seems to be a light period can include: thyroid problems, eating disorders, excessive exercise, initial periods for a girl, use of an intrauterine device, oral contraceptives, perimenopause ; implantation bleeding in early pregnancy which rarely occurs. If it keeps up - let you gyn know. ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I had a period from October 5-9 then spotting from the 21-27th negative pregnancy test after both period and spotting. Could I still be pregnant?

Maybe...: Having a normal regular period means one is not pregnant at that time. Having sex after that period means one could become pregnant on the current month. If the next period comes and is a normal regular one, it means one is not pregnant, again. If worried, one can do a urine pregnancy test the week after missing a period, or 3 weeks after having sex. ...Read more

Was expecting period but it only lasted one day and then just brownish spotting. Negative pregnancy test. Why did I only bleed for a day?

Was expecting period but it only lasted one day and then just brownish spotting. Negative pregnancy test. Why did I only bleed for a day?

Thin uterine lining: Amount of bleeding depends on how much tissue there is to shed. If you are thin, smoke and excercise a lot your lining will be thin (or if you take hormone therapy as birth control). If you do take birthcontrol it is very common to have a short, or even no period. If you are not on birthcontrol make sure you do get your period every 4-6 weeks; if no period at all for 3-4 months see your doc. ...Read more

Probably not: The fact that you had a period, although it was not like your usual periods, makes it very unlikely that you are pregnant. Most women have an usual period (shorter, longer, lighter, heavier, early, or late) once in a while. Home pregnancy tests are very reliable, but if you remain concerned and have had unprotected sex within the past month, do another pregnancy test in 1 week to be sure. ...Read more
