Orange = blood : 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. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Is it normal to be bleeding after a routine papsmer when I am not due to get my period for another week ?

Is it normal to be bleeding after a routine papsmer when I am not due to get my period for another week ?

Yes, bleeding normal: Bleeding is common with pap smears, as the brush or stick scrapes the surface of the cervix and cervical canal, which is thin and easily injured. This bleeding should be temporary and very light in volume while the scraped cervix heals. If it persists more than 2-3 days, or is heavy in volume (assuming this is not during your period of course), you should then inform your gyn doc. ...Read more

I ovalated on the 29th of nov i think i experianced implatation bleeding on the 9th of dec and im due on my period the 13th of Dec.but neg preg test?

Not myth but..: Implantation bleeding is not really as common as the internet would have you believe. When it does happen it's usually 6-12 days after ovulation. A pregnancy test 7-10 days after unprotected intercourse is much more helpful. Implantation bleeding occurs exclusively in pregnant women. If your test stays negative then the bleeding is not from implanation -- just irregular bleeding ...Read more

Four day past due on my period and took a pregnacy test and was negative. What could be going on?

Four day past due on my period and took a pregnacy test and was negative. What could be going on?

Give it time: There could be several reasons for a missed period. If you are trying to get pregnant, the most likely explanation is that you are, and if you wait a few more days, your HCG levels will rise enough to be detectable on the test and it will be positive. Stress and weight loss can also cause some irregularity in periods. I recommend you re-test in 1 week and will hopefully get some good news. ...Read more

Pregnancy: If you are healthy and have sex without optimal protection you are always at risk of becoming pregnant. Why wonder? Do a pregnancy test. They are very sensitive and turn positive extremely early in pregnancy but not reliably until 2-3 weeks after sex. If you still wonder, repeat in one-two weeks later and your answer will be as sure as is possible without going to see MD. ...Read more

Spotting: Sounds like low Progesterone spotting before your period. Keep a menstrual diary and see if it gets normal next cycle. If it persists, you may need a Progesterone boost. Other things cause spotting like polyps, fibroids and infections. And always consider pregnancy if it's a possibility. ...Read more

Variations: After taking the morning after pill, the bleeding pattern can be very irregular for up to 2 months. Some women do bleed a few days after taking but not all. The bleeding pattern doesn't mean anything about whether the pill worked or not. Be sure to do a home urine pregnancy test using the first urine of the morning. Do it 14 days after the sex. ...Read more

Typical with Plan B: Plan b essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion. Irregular bleeding after taking Plan B is not rare. Always check a pregnancy test after using Plan B and see a doctor to start a better form of birth control. ...Read more
