That : That would be early for implantation bleeding, but please take a pregnancy test. If it is negative, but your next period is still late, then you will need to take another test. Other causes of irregular bleeding can include hormones being "out of whack" or dysfunctional uterine bleeding, or spotting from an abnormal pregnancy. If you develop pain, increased bleeding, or new symptoms then please have an emergency evaluation. ...Read more

Yes, if...: If a woman is in the middle of her pack (in the active pills), she should get a "period" of withdrawal bleeding when she gets onto the inactive placebo pills. That happens because when her body stops receiving the active pills' hormones, the drop in hormone levels will cause the lining of her uterus to shed and thus appear as vaginal bleeding. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant from sex one day after a period ended?

Is it possible to get pregnant from sex one day after a period ended?

Possible: If you had a short menstrual cycle it is possible. As an example- a woman with a 22 days long menstrual cycle would likely ovulate on day 8. That means her highest fertility would be days 7 to 9. The cycle length starts with day 1 on the first day of your period. As long as there are still viable sperm in the woman's body when an egg is available - then pregnancy could occur. ...Read more

Low estrogen: Usually the failure to have a withdrawal bleed after taking adequate dose of Progesterone is caused by low estrogen levels. But this is a simplification. We'd need a lot more details of your medical history, an exam and perhaps lab work and an ultrasound to be able to tell what is going on and what to expect. ...Read more
