Old blood: Most likely from breakthrough bleeding due to hormonal fluctuations, thyroid issues, uterine issues, stress, tension, anxiety or simply aging. I suggest keeping a menstrual journal and monitoring your cycles over the next 3 months. If symptoms persist see your GYN and bring your journal. ...Read more

Spotting does not: Count. You should count from the first day of your regular period and ignore the spotting in estimating your next period. If you do not wish to be pregnant, you should use contraception all the time as pregnancy is known to occur from sex on any day of the cycle. ...Read more

Periods can vary: If a woman of child-bearing age is having intercourse, there is a chance she could become pregnant even if using contraception. Because of that, most obgyn doctors encourage a woman to have a pregnancy test or exam if she has an unusual or delayed period. Sometimes it is too early to tell, but the office nurse or doctor can advise patients what to do when. ...Read more

My usual period last for 4 days. But now since 2 mths, I notice light spotting 2 days before period and my period lasts for 2 day only. M not pregnent?

Probably not: Periods can change over time. If you are having periods every 28 days that are normal in terms of duration and flow, its unlikely that you are pregnant. Some women spot before and after their regular period. Its annoying but not abnormal and doesn't mean you are pregnant. Best wishes! ...Read more

9 days before my period is due I got brown spotting in my underwear, but it only lasted a day and no period has yet followed. Could I be pregnant?

Maybe: Pregnancy is the most common cause of a missed period. If not pregnant, other causes of a late or missed period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (especially birth control pills), hormonal disorders, etc… A home urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex. Tests are sold everywhere. ...Read more

I've been spotting 2 days before my period is do. I took a pregnancy test a day before my period is due and it came back negative. Do I take another?

I've been spotting 2 days before my period is do. I took a pregnancy test a day before my period is due and it came back negative. Do I take another?

Yes: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative re do the test in 4-5 days, unless you get a period before then. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

Hard to tell...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Pregnant? Missed one bc pill and had sex that day next day I took 2 pills. Started spotting 2 days after and its been a week my period is due in 3 dys

Pregnancy unlikely: Pregnancy is not likely, but one can do a test later, to be sure. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened). If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. Tests are inexpensive and available in stores everywhere. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: What you're describing sounds most likely to be breakthrough bleeding. That is bleeding that occurs earlier then it should for your cycle. Very common. If any concern for pregnancy, recommend home pregnancy test on first morning urine. If negative, repeat in 7 to 10 days. If this bleeding issue continues for the next one or two cycles, see your GYN provider. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck ...Read more

I am 23 years old. I have the IUD paragard and am sexually active I am having frequent urination and don't have a uti. My period is due the first week of april. Since my last period I have had one day where there was spotting. I did take a home pregnancy

I am 23 years old. I have the IUD paragard and am sexually active I am having frequent urination and don't have a uti. My period is due the first week of april. Since my last period I have had one day where there was spotting. I did take a home pregnancy

If: If a patient continued to have frequent urination, or had burning with urination, flank pain, fever, or vomiting, then they may have a uti. Frequent urination can be caused by pressure on the uterus from pregnancy, so if there is suspicion, even if there was a negative pregnancy test, then repeating a test would be reasonable. Rarely, elevated blood sugar can cause increased urination, so if it continued or the patient had markedly increased thirst or dehydration, then the blood sugar should be checked; again that would be very rare. ...Read more
