Anovulation: It sounds as if you've had an anovulatory cycle. These are cycles in which the ovary fails to release the egg. This alters hormonal levels and distrupts the cycle. Call your doctor. ...Read more

I doubled up on my pill for 2 days as was spotting and then took the rest as usual. I stopped taking it and haven't had a period. 2x-ve preg test?

Birth control: The birth control pill can make the lining of the uterus very thin and therefore some people have nothing to slough off to give them a period. This can also be from the effect of doubling up on the pill earlier. As long as pregnancy tests are negative keep taking pill as usual. ...Read more

I had a surg. Abortion 7 weeks ago I have been on the pill and having spotting I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago the preg, test + is it just hormones?

I had a surg. Abortion 7 weeks ago I have been on the pill and having spotting I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago the preg, test + is it just hormones?

Unsure: A positive pregnancy test should be assumed to mean you are pregnant. It would be important to know that the tissue removed when you had the abortion was normal and that your pregnancy test had returned to negative after the abortion. It is possible that there could still be pregnancy tissue remaining fro the prior pregnancy and that could be a big problem. To be safe, see your doctor. ...Read more

I had unprotexted sex the day after my period ended...i had sex on my 3rd missed pill...i have spotting (2 days) and morning sickness when can I test?

After missing period: 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 withdrawal 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 withdrawal period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

Had intercourse on 14feb took morning after pill on 15thfeb had spotting 5 days after no period - 10 weeks now only spotting negative HPT?

Off cycle: It's possible the morning after pill has messed with your cycle a bit, but we don't commonly see interference for this long after taking the pill, but that's not to say it can't happen. To be sure about pregnancy status, I would see your doc and ask for a blood quantitative or qualitative HCG level. This will tell you for sure whether you're pregnant or maybe just recovering from the PlanB hormones ...Read more

I'm on lithium, 2 weeks ago I had pink spotting for an hour, than a 2 days later the same thing and a pg test came back negative what is going on?

Not likely related: Your spotting may be unrelated to your lithium use. However you need to further investigate its cause as regular pregnancy test may not yet be positive depending on what stage you are in your menstrual cycle. Lithium has been associated with cardiac abnormalities in offsprings of patients on the medication hence the need for caution with its use especially in the early stages of pregnancy. ...Read more
