If not pregnant, other causes of a late or missed period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (especially birth control pills), hormonal disorders, etc… a visit to one’s ob-gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

I've been having midcycle pink and brown spotting for 5 days and heavy discharge with no odor. Is this normal?

You may need to: check for a vaginal infection. If there are no other symptoms, such as vaginal itching, odor, etc. then you may be starting irregular spotting/ periods with your hormone cycle at your age. It could be very early on, or minor spotting may be a fluke. But if it continues, you may need to see a GYN or family physician to help you regulate your cycle to be more predictable. Or find the infection. ...Read more

I had some brownish, reddish discharge for 2 days, then pink, then nothing and then spotting bright red past 2 days. could it be implantation?

I had some brownish, reddish discharge for 2 days, then pink, then nothing and then spotting bright red past 2 days. could it be implantation?

A person can't tell: Wait. A positive pregnancy test can tell a woman that prior spotting was actually implantation spotting. It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more
