I've had regular periods, but this month I had a very, very light period with dark brown blood, not even enough blood to fill a pad. Could I be pregnant?

So take a test: Don't guess. Take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. Since you had your period this seems very unlikely.

Is it normal to have a very light period to the point when I've been to the toilet after wiping a very small amount of light brown/ red blood?

Meds, OC?: If you are not on medication that could affect your cycles, no Oral contraceptives, then you should start with a pregnancy test wether you practice safe sex or not. If the pregnancy test is negative then you need a medical evaluation to look for possible hormonal or structural problems.

Like 2 weeks ago I use Plan B and I got a light period that last me 3 days that blood was dark what does it mean?

Like 2 weeks ago I use Plan B and I got a light period that last me 3 days that blood was dark what does it mean?

Well, it means. . .: You are having unprotected sex, and you could end up with a pregnancy or an std. Plan b is, well, plan b, and plan a should be safe sex and birth control you are in control of. Dark periods in and of themselves may mean nothing specific, or it could be the result of a plan b-induced abortion of an early pregnancy. Be safe, not a parent!

See your MD: There are many reasons for abnormal bleeding including, hormonal imbalance, thyroid or other medical problems and stress. Fibroids, polyps, thickened lining and adenomyosis (endometriosis of the uterus) may also cause abnormal bleeding. Your doctor will diagnose your problem and make a treatment plan with you if needed.

Bleeding psot Plan B: You should not expect a normal flow after using plan b. Wait for you next period and if it's still abnormal follow up with your gyn.

I had a very light period that began 2/8/17 and lasted about 4 days but am finding brown-red blood on tp after urinating. Also frequent urine, no pain?

Well, it either: Could be irregular menses/dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) or blood from the bladder possibly associated with a urinary infection. The urinary blood would likely be brighter producing pink-tinged urine, so I'm guessing more like DUB. This results from normal hormonal fluctuations associated with stress, fatigue, illness, medications, etc. If persists, see Doctor for evaluation and testing.

Take a test: If you have had unprotected sex you can always be pregnant. If you missed a period and now have a little bleeding, there's no way to tell if you are pregnant until you take a test. If you do not want to be pregnant, talk to your doctor about birth control. If you do want to be pregnant, talk to your doctor about your irregular cycles.

Breakthrough bleed: Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill. Brown is simply old blood that has been sitting at the back of the vagina. Often things get back to normal the next cycle. If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous.

Light period but heavy blood clots....why is that?

Light period but heavy blood clots....why is that?

Normal variation: Normal women have variations in their periods due to changes in hormonal status and normal variations in pituitary and ovarian function.

Past 3 mths period spotting only to sometimes a very light period, little or no blood on pad but sometimes decent amount when wipe or shower, like it?

Past 3 mths period spotting only to sometimes a very light period, little or no blood on pad but sometimes decent amount when wipe or shower, like it?

Pregnant? Need info: This could be from any number of reasons. Are you on birth control? If so the bleeding you get with placebo pills is actually not a period, but a withdrawal bleed. If you miss a pill you may have midcycle spotting. Has your cycle always been regular? Could you be pregnant or have a STD? Did you change time zones or are you under significant stress? See MD if spotting continues.

Very light period for 4 days and no blood clotting. Is this normal?

Very light period for 4 days and no blood clotting. Is this normal?

Maybe: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, a longer or shorter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or Ob-Gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome.

Very light period, lasts only s few hours, does that mean my ovaries are still working since there was blood?

Very light period, lasts only s few hours, does that mean my ovaries are still working since there was blood?

If: If you are having regular periods regardless of how heavy the are your ovaries are still working. If you are only having some occasional irregular bleeding that does not mean your ovaries are or aren't working. Hope this helps.

Did anyone else ever had a light period following a blood donation?

Not connected.: There shouldn't be any relationship between donating a unit of blood and your menstrual cycle.

Probably nothing: Irregular bleeding is fine as long as you are not over 35 years old, overweight, or have any other risk factors for uterine cancer. If you are any of those other things, see a gynecologist and request an endometrial biospy.

An off cycle: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.
