Depends

Pregnancy_test
If you miss your period or only spot, you could be pregnant or you could have a lighter than normal period. I recommend getting a pregnancy test. If that is negative, then there are many many reasons for spotting. Much depends on your age, if you are on contraception, and many other factors.

I have spotting after a 19 day long menstrual period, what does it mean?

I am confused.

Menses
If you have had a 19 day long period - this is not normal and warrants gynecological eval. If you had a period and 19 days later experienced break through bleeding - that could be due to hormone imbalances.

What does it mean if you have a brown stringy discharge after your menstrual period?

Depends

Menstrual
Depends on where this is happening in your cycle. This could still be part of your period at the end. It could happen with mid month spotting after ovulation. It may be normal but it is tough to tell without a proper examination. Other factors such as infection, growths, bleeding disorders, pregnancy, medical conditions can cause abnorma discharge, spotting, or bleeding.

Natural

Pain_medication
Clear discharge is a normal sign of vaginal health. The vagina is a self cleaning organ, think of it like your nose running, just keep it clean and move on

Can a late menstrual period mean i am pregnant?

Not always

Pregnant
There are a number of common causes of irregular cycles. Certainly pregnancy is one of these, but if cycles persist in being irregular, there are some blood tests and findings on exam that may explain them.

Does a late menstrual period mean i am pregnant ????

Missed period

Pregnant
No, it does not mean you are pregnant, but you should check a home pregnancy test as most pregnancies are associated with being late for at least one period. There are other reasons beside pregnancy for being late. Doctors will want to check for pregancy first before looking at other reasons.

Can a heavy menstrual period mean anything serious?

At Times...

Open-uri20120729-7647-1e82jp7
Heavy menstrual bleeding is one of the most common reasons for a Gyn Visit. Most are due to simple hormonal "imbalances" like PCOS/anovulation. These are treatable with medications based on your plans for conceiving. BUT, other things may cause it as well: bleeding disorders, thyroid chanhes, weight changes, stress, medications, uterine/ov tumors or abnormal endometrial tisssue. Needs proper eval.
