Most likely...: your spotting will stop when you have an actual menstrual period. However, without knowing your menstrual history or having a crystal ball, I can't say for sure. If this is a recurrent problem, you should see your gyno. If you're concerned about a possible pregnancy, you should get a pregnancy test. Best wishes from your Health Tap docs! ...Read more

Need a picture: Very difficult to say without a picture to look at. It could range from mild normal pigmentation changes brought on by hormonal activity or sun exposure to congenital pigmented lesions which range, again, from benign to potentially dangerous dysplastic nevi to early melanomas (lentigo maligna melanoma as they used to be called)..any pigmented lesion should be checked by the appropriate physician. ...Read more

If you had sex, then: yes, you could be pregnant. If you have a history of irregular periods, you cannot tell whether you are pregnant by the timing of your periods. Consider seeing your doctor for a serum beta-hCG test. I would start taking prenatal vitamins. Also do not drink alcohol, and do not smoke. Best wishes to you! ...Read more

Hi there, i'm going to be grose but.... The last 2 days i've pooped it's had spots that was clay colored/ very light brown, anything to worry about?

Considerations...: Bile & your gut's bacterial flora account in large part for color & volume of stool. Absence of bile results in pale, clay-color stool. Lots of other things also affect stool appearance: ingested foods, medications (peptobismol, antacids), swallowed blood or bleeding from gut, infection/antibiotics, inflammation, maldigestion, & the amount of mucus mixed with stool, as well as transit time of food. ...Read more

I'm 6 1/2 weeks and experiencing slight cramps and very light brown discharge mixed with mucous. Should I be worried :(?

No, it doesn't help: Blunt truth is that nothing that u do at this point, (other than quit smoking) can make a difference. It's poss. 2B early sign of miscarriage, (it's est. 20% of all pregnancies measured from conception miscarriage). Could just be some cramping & mild spotting. Time will tell. Avoid sex & heavy exercise reasonable, but not proven to make a difference in published studies. ...Read more

I'm 6 1/2 weeks and experiencing slight cramps and very light brown discharge mixed with mucous. Should I be worried :(?

a normal pregnancy with bleeding from the pregnancy doing it's thing and implanting into the wall of the uterus (womb)
a miscarriage - usually watch and wait, the bleeding will increase and the pain may increase
a tubal / ectopic pregnancy - usually very painful.
If the pain or bleeding increase - see a doctor right away. ...Read more

Mid cycle spotting: Since you are mid cycle (which is day 14 of the cycle) this could be mid cycle spotting. Sometimes women will spot due to hormone changes of ovulation. Another possibility is your hormones were off some this cycle and so you're spotting. At any rate this is usually not a problem and should resolve on its own. Another possibility is a cervical or vaginal infection. Get checked if it doesn't stop. ...Read more
