Spotting Before Your Period – Why?

Written by  //  August 11, 2011  //  Pregnancy  //  274 Comments

Spotting Before Your PeriodOh dear.  Spotting before your period – what does it mean?  Your period is not due for at least another week but you have found a little blood or pink or brown discharge that isn’t followed by normal flow bleeding. This is spotting and tends to always lead to your heart skipping a beat. What does it mean? Illness?  Too much Indian food? Or .. you might be pregnant….  Seriously?  Breathe….exhale.

Spotting Before Your Period Can Be an Early Sign of Pregnancy

If you had sex while you were ovulating (that is when your egg was released from your ovaries about 10 days after your period ended and about 2 weeks before your next period is due) then spotting could be a sign that you are pregnant. Spotting sometimes occurs when the fertilized egg implants itself into the wall of your uterus. This would typically occur 3-5 days after having unprotected sex.  Your uterus is lined with nourishing blood for the growing baby and some of this blood can be expelled at implantation. Implantation is a necessary step in pregnancy and allows mom’s body to start nourishing the growing baby.

Not All Women Experience Spotting

However, not all pregnant women experience spotting, and in fact few do.  If you experience spotting and your period does not follow a week or so later, of if you’re concerned about what it means, it’s time to see a doctor and take a test to find out if you could be pregnant. (Don’t we all just love the pee stick test.  Ugh.)  Spotting could mean nothing and could be just a minor blip in your menstrual cycle.  As always, if you have any concerns about your menstrual cycle or any other aspect of your body’s normal functioning, it is best to consult your doctor.  (After searching for endless hours on the web, of course.)

A wise course is to try and eliminate as much stress as you can from your routine, and take even better care of yourself. Whether you do turn out to be pregnant or not, your body will cherish the nurturing. We’d love to hear your story in the comment section – did you experience spotting that indicated your were pregnant? (Two of our writers did as well as our publisher).

    I am 40 years old and I have been spotting before my period for a few years now. My doctor said it was a sign I was in peri-menopause. I take prometrium and it helps.

  2. april September 10, 2009 at 6:02 pm ·

    I had spotting this month which is not common for me. then my period came way way early. it seems like a normal period. I’m 36 and ttc. Do you know what might be going on? Thanks

  3. Karen September 13, 2009 at 7:07 pm ·

  4. danielle September 14, 2009 at 8:43 pm ·

  5. danielle September 14, 2009 at 8:47 pm ·

    (to karen) spotting happens sometimes a week b4 ur period if you dont get it within a week take a pregnancy test!!!!

  6. Alison September 16, 2009 at 9:17 am ·

    I’m going through something similar…had spotting only a week and a half after my period ended (so about two and a half weeks after my period began) and now I can’t tell if I’m still spotting but it’s heavier, or if I’m having a super light period. We do have unprotected sex and we had it around ovulation and I’m usually very regular with my cycle.

  7. Stephanie Uribe September 17, 2009 at 9:32 pm ·

    hi, im 15yrs old and i’m really concerned that i might be pregnant. I have a regular period but this month was weird, a week before my period i was spotting brown blood and then i started my period but my period is really light. and like every morning i bleed pink. and then later on that day i stop. whats happening?

  8. ashley September 22, 2009 at 10:18 am ·

    hi. im 19 years old..i got my period on the 26th of august, but that month it was about 2 weeks late and i took a pt and it was neg.. then i ovulated it said on the 9th of sept. but on the 14th, i got what looked like a normal period. lasted about 4 days. i did have unprotected sex with ejaculation inside me the 10th thru the 14th. could i be pregnant? im not worried or excited, just want to know. i would honestly like to be pregnant. im done with cosmotolgy school. have a fiancee. we have been trying. im just really confused about my period month its 2 weeks late. so i expect it on the 26th of this month but it comes right around my ovulation time. if i even ovulated i guess. :/ what should i think?

  9. Kesha Johnson September 22, 2009 at 11:01 pm ·

    Im having the same problem!!!!!
    I used the ovulation calendar and it said i ovulated on the 15th – 20th.
    I figured it was safe to have sex the next day cause i wasnt ovulating.
    On sept 1st – 3rd i had my period.
    On the 4th i decided to have sex and the condom broke.
    I know i cant get pregnant unless im ovulating but last week i noticed i been having light pink bleeding which only lasted 1 day.
    I have a week and 1 day to get my period and the light pink bleeding is back and jus wanted to know if it was implantation bleeding? Or could it be something else?
    Plz help should i wait to see if i miss my period or go to the doctor now?

  10. Sasha September 26, 2009 at 1:10 pm ·

    Uhm Im 15 and Ive been getting this for a little while , I dont know why . It has been months since Ive had sex without a condom , wouldn’t I be showing now if I was pregnant ?

  11. amanda September 30, 2009 at 8:05 am ·

    my husband and i have been trying to get pregnant. we had sex when i was ovulating on the 14th. now my period is 7 days early. its never been that early and usually its late. what could that mean?

  12. amanda September 30, 2009 at 11:06 am ·

    its also a brownish red color

  13. amanda September 30, 2009 at 11:07 am ·

    its light but its not light enough to be spotting.

  14. Courtney October 8, 2009 at 7:05 am ·

    Hi, my name is Courtney. I’m 15 years old, and I have been having unprotected sex almost every week this month of October. On Monday 5th or Sunday the 4th, and experienced pink spotting for only one day. I have never had it before. My period is due in a week. I took 3 pregnancy tests the week before I started spotting. They all came up negative. This week on Tuesday and Thursday, I took a pregnancy test, and they both came up negative. I’ve heard that I may not be pregnant, and my cervix might just be irritated. I’m not sure what is going on. Is it still to early to be taking a pregnancy test?

  15. Courtney October 8, 2009 at 7:06 am ·

    **I’ve also been having some unprotected sex in september to.

  16. Sarah October 11, 2009 at 4:21 pm ·

    I have a question, my last period was on sept 21st. On October 6th and 7th i was experiencin some light spotting (pink and brown discharge) which i have never had before. I still have not gotten my period, could I be pregnant?

  17. Courtney October 13, 2009 at 7:11 am ·

    I wondered the same exact thing whenever I was spotting. It was the very first time I ever had it. I had spotting 6 days before my period was supposed to begin, but it turned out that I got it on that Saturday. Spotting is normal sometimes before you get your period when you have unprotected sex. That, or your cervix might be irritated or you might even have a bladder infection. It all depends. So the best thing to do is wait…But whether your pregnant or not it all revolves around how your period is and when. Make sure you don’t jump to conclusions till you know exactly when its supposed to start, and if you know for sure you missed it. When is your next expect period?

  18. Ashlyn October 29, 2009 at 6:51 pm ·

    I have had my last period Oct. 6, 09 (3 days late) and started spotting for three days Oct. 21-23, 09. The first day was pinkish mucus, 2nd day spotting in my panties, 3rd day brownish to black mucus. I have not had my period as yet, it is due to come Nov. 3rd. I have had a tubal reversal in Feb. 09 after having three children (15,16 & 17).. am I crazy… some may say yes.. I am mainly doing this for my fiance’ who has no kids (3 kids are for my ex-husband). I will take a home pregnancy test tomorrow morning and a hcg blood test on Monday (already scheduled) I’ll let you all know who I make out… pray for me that I am withchild….!!!!

  19. Courtney November 2, 2009 at 12:47 pm ·

    Congratulations Ashlyn! I’ve been trying to for 2 months now. I’m pretty mature for my age, and I have a job and a few extra bucks in my paycheck. So I am stable to care for a child. But the problem is, I haven’t gotten pregnant yet. I need all of your guy’s thoughts and prayers!

  20. JadaLynn November 7, 2009 at 9:54 pm ·

    I had unprotected sex w/ejaculation 3x on nov 1. I’m due for my period on nov 13. I’ve been tracking my periods and the tracker has been fairly accurate. this time I’ve had spotting from the 5th-7th and minor cramps. I took 1 test and it told me to see pamphlet! so it was a dud! my boyfriend and I are anxiously awaiting the news. I’ve never spotted, and my periods are usually extremely heavy! I’m thinking this might be an implantation thing going on!

  21. Lucy November 8, 2009 at 2:00 pm ·

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me out, I had light spotting about 5-6 days after my last period, the spotting lasted about 3 days, well now i’m supposed to start my period in about a week and have just started spotting again today and having minor cramping. Any ideas what this may be?? before i start getting super stressed out, I keep finding a lot of forums saying pregnancy and/or implantation bleeding. I’m just wondering if anyone has any ideas what this may be. I am on the pill but my bf and i have had unprotected sex a couple times in the past month.

    hi my name is lexa im 20 years old and between april 7th and the 11th i had unprotected sex with my fiance. yesterday may 6th around 11pm i noticed some very light pinky brown colouring you could barely notice it. today may 7th i noticed that the colour got a little bit brighter (more visible) but its more of a light brown colour i have never experienced this before my period is messed up because i was in the hospital from march 26th to april 12th and they had me pumped full of drugs (sedatives anti-seisure medication,anti depressants, meds for my blood pressure they also gave me a drug to have short term memory loss because i was in a medically induced coma) so im not sure whats going on i could possibly be pregnant but with everything thats happened and with all the drugs that were in my system who knows what it could be…!

  34. ZP October 17, 2010 at 8:27 pm ·

    so i am 15 and on birthcontrol, have been for more then a few months. my boyfriend and i have a lot of unprotected sex, daily sort of thing. this month i had my period, at the regular time when i should just as my birthcontrol regulates it. Then i missed a pill, which usually makes me spot heavily, so i did for about ten days. Now when i should have my period, should have gotten it today, i dont. Im wondering if maybe its late because i was bleeding a lot recently? its never been late before. could i be pregnant?

  36. erica January 20, 2011 at 8:59 pm ·

    I have a question I had my tubes reversed 4 months ago, my periods are 30 days apart and always have been even after the reversal, however this month my husband and I had sex during my fertile days, mid cycle I woke up in the morning with a bad runny nose a couple hrs later had pink watery discharge a couple drops then gone after that had no more runny nose, I had pain on my right side, I had a lot of pressure on the lower part of my stomach, the legs hurt so bad like I ran a marathon, this continued for about 4 days then 4 days later I woke up with my period 3 days early it is on the heavier side but its not bright red it started off pink and slimy now its dark pink could I be pregnant hpt are negative as of yesterday, I did have more symptoms but I think this is long enough

  37. jacqui January 25, 2011 at 4:37 pm ·

    Hi, I’m 21 years old and have been on the pill for 9 months now. I went had my period 2 and a half weeks ago while on a cruise and continued to take my birth control but in the mornings instead on 4 pm.I had unprotected sex a few times during the trip. About 3 to 4 days after my period ended I began to have light brown discharge that is still happening now with cramps (been a week). I took a preg test 3 days ago and it came up negative..I hope I’m not pregnant..can u help me figure out what else is could be?

  38. Nicola January 26, 2011 at 4:46 pm ·

    Hi every one….I have a child and it took us 2 years to conceive him so believe me I understand a lot of the pain I see here. The only way to know if you are pregnant or not is to wait till your period is due and then take a pregnancy test. Before then the test is not reliable. Spotting can mean lots of things so best thing to do is ignore it as best you can and wait till you can take that test.
    Lastly if you are 15 and having regular unprotected sex, then please please please find an adult that you can trust and confide in them.

  39. Kirsten January 29, 2011 at 8:35 pm ·

    Hi. My name is Kirsten and I am 19. I haven’t had a period in 3 years (because of depo.) I got off my shot Dec. 27th. I am having unproected sex with my husband, and recently started spotting.It is on and off. It started Jan. 8th. It kinda got heavier, then back to light, then I stopped. Now it is Jan 29th and I am spotting lightly. I have not yet taken a pt or been to the Dr. Does this mean I could be pregnant or is it just my body trying to get back to its normal cycle? Please help!

  40. Tiffany February 5, 2011 at 5:29 pm ·

    im tiffany and im 26. I have been spotting on and off since tuesday. I had my period jan 10-15, and ovulated the 24th(had sex). Im due for my next period in 2 days. Along with the spotting, I’ve been cramping and having headaches. Am I possibly pregnant, or is this pms? Do you just suddenly develop pms if you’ve never had it before? Help! o yeah, this would be my third..

  45. mia April 28, 2011 at 9:17 pm ·

    Hi, my boyfriend and I have been trying to conceive for about 2 and a half months or so.. I had my period April 6th and ended it on the 11th. But for some reason, it had stopped on the 8th and 9th and was really light on the 10th and the 11th. That had never happened to me before, so it has me worried. Its 2 and a half weeks later and I have had spotting for 5 days. I’m praying it is implantation. I am not supposed to get my period for another week and 2 or three days.

  46. sara May 30, 2011 at 11:02 pm ·

    My boyfriend and I have been having unprotected sex we use the “pull out” method. I’m always on time I start on the 7th of every month! My periods are always light and last 3 days. Last month it came on time, perfectly fine. At the end of that month I started to get cramps bad, I don’t think i’ve cramped this bad since i started my period for the first time. I felt like i had started sure enough i did, i think. Its the 30th of the same month but its really light, lighter than usual and brownish/ pinkish. My belly feels weird, i get sick in the afternoons started about a month ago. Its really weird.. kinda worried. what do i do? What does this mean?!

  47. lauren June 6, 2011 at 8:15 am ·

    Hi all my period was 4 days late and oi have been trying for a baby for 9 months and 2 days after my perios which was light compared to what it normally is I started t have brown discharge what does this mean never had this before :/

  48. Cheryl June 6, 2011 at 11:33 am ·

    I have PCOS and have been trying to get pregnant for a couple years now. The first day of my last period was on May 22-26. I had light cramping/twinge feeling in my right lower abdominal area on the 13th day of my cycle. i had unprotected sex on the 10th, 11th and 13th day of my cycle.I started spotting lite-moderate on day 14, 15 & 16 of my cycle and continue to do so, Its pink to lite red in color. I take Metformin 500mg 2 x a day which was prescribed for the PCOS, My question is why I am i spotting?

  49. Danielle June 16, 2011 at 11:24 am ·

    Hi there,
    I am petrified! I am spotting 2 weeks before my period is due. I am 31 years old, and my husband is 25 but he’s always thought he is sterile. We’ve had unprotected sex w/ejaculation for 4 years and not one scare. I have had no problem getting pregnant before I met him, however I do not have any children (unfortunately due to a car accident I had an abortion and had no choice). That was also many years ago though. My husband and I work out alot more now then we ever did, I read that could also be the cause. I don’t recall spotting before.
    We are trying to concieve now but I’m so scared that it could be in fact, now, as he is being deployed for about a year in a month overseas :( the spotting was pink yesterday when it first started on the 15th… Today it is a bit brighter red and streaky like. I’m not due for my period until the 5th. Do you think…? Someone, anyones advice please I’m scared, happy, freaked out all at the same time

  50. shealee June 16, 2011 at 4:02 pm ·

    i don’t think that any of you girls that are 15 should be having sex at such an young almost 19 years old, i have graduated high school and im in college and im still a virgin, i have friends that have babies and they have all said its not worth giving up your teenage years. so the best thing is to wait, well by now its already to late, but you can always stop having sex. In the bible it says to wait until your married, its also a BIG sin. SO just STOP! live your teenage life. (but not with a baby)

  51. laurie July 8, 2011 at 11:22 pm ·

    I’m 21 years old. I am on a steady birth control. Last month I had sex multiple times with a partner, we did not use condoms, but he pulled out. I got my period about six days late, and it was super light and only three or four days. It was more like spotting, really. Then this month, while maintaining my birth control, I got my period a week early, and it will be three weeks tomorrow that I’ve been consistently bleeding. For the first two weeks, it was really light, closer to spotting. But this past week it has been heavier and more like a period. Does anyone have any idea what this could mean? I went to see my doctor and she said I was clear of any cysts/pollups/infection. I just don’t know what to think right now. Any response would be appreciated.

  52. katie July 12, 2011 at 12:52 pm ·

    I started spotting pink/brown blood last night and i am exactly a week befoye my period. I never use condoms with my boyfriend we just do the pull out trick. does this mean i am pregnant??? my boobes arnt sore or nothing like that

  56. Britt July 30, 2011 at 11:41 pm ·

    I have been spotting now for a week and a half. When I started I wasn’t due for my period for another 2 weeks. I just changed my birth control pill brand after my last period, would that have anything to do with the week and a half spotting? I also found when I would take my pill before bed I would wake up in the morning feeling sick, almost like I was going to puke but never. That sickness lasted about a week and now I’m fine again. I thought that I was pregnant so I took a test and it came out negative. My boobs aren’t sore or any other symptoms of pregnancy except for feeling sick in the morning. So my question is, is this spotting due from my new pills or am I pregnant? Any help would be greatful!!

  57. Angela August 7, 2011 at 12:05 pm ·

    Okay, on the day I was supposed to begin my period, I began spotting. However this “spotting only lasted a few hours maybe. I went to the bathroom a total of 3 times and on the third time it was finished. I am married so ofcourse we dont use protection. I am usually a regular person when it comes to my cycle but this time I have not been. How long should I wait to take a home test before making a doctors appointment?

  58. PEEYOU August 29, 2011 at 10:19 am ·

    My name is Peeyou

    So embarrassed, I need some help about fishy odors after my period, i already see doctors for some medicines, no results, it still coming back month after month.

    Any response would be appreciated.

    I am having the same problems as most of you! I was on the birth control patch from May 2005 to the end of August 2010. Before then and during that time and even after I have always been regular, very regular! I always knew exactly what day I would start. This past June I started spotting about a week before my period so I thought “ok, I’m already pregnant”, my husband and I are trying. Then I got my period, it was a little lighter than usual but still last about 4 days so I thought maybe it was just an “off” month for me. July was the same thing, started spotting about a week before starting. Ok, so I started worrying about it a little more but thought hopefully August will be normal! Not the case! In August I started spotting on the 3rd and actually started on the 8th, it was light and only last a couple days. Then, I had an OBGYN appt on the 26th. I asked her about it and she said not to be too worried about it right now because it probably just means I did not ovulate. Well later that same day, after my pap, I started spotting again. That was the 26th of August. Fast forward a week and I am STILL spotting!!! It’s extrememly light and the majority of the time it’s just on the TP when I wipe. It is brownish looking in color but a couple days ago it was bright red. Sorry to be so gross but I am getting very worried about this!!! My dr said to wait and see what the results of the pap are and go from there but she did say everything looked and felt normal. I just keep telling myself that because I am to the point where I am so worried that something may be wrong with me. HELP!! I’m only 28!

    Hi. I’m 18 years old. The last time I had sex was august 8th. But I started a light period august 10th. My period was due today, but 6 days ago I had lite spotting in the mornings and that was it. I have been thinking I was pre go but I don’t have many signs so I don’t know. I never spot. I took a test and it was negative but it could of been to early to tell. I feel very hungry in the mornings and sometimes sick when I eat.

    I am 30 years old. 10 years ago, after a two years of using OCP my period cycle went to a different pattern;spotting 3-4 days before period…and now I have spotting 1week before period…i am going to be pregnant next month… do I need any medications?

  68. Jules September 19, 2011 at 6:11 am ·

    Hi guys, trust you all well… Uhm where do I begin? Well I’ve been married for a year now and been ttc ever since, (sadly, with no luck this far) and recently been having a lot of problem with my cycle, bleeding for longer than expected, its just such a pain, I’ve been for most of the test, including and HSG which has come back absolutely normal, I’m so confused because the bleeding is just getting worst and closer all the time not even giving me a break in between! This has been going on since April, I was told not to worry about how long I bleed, however its really gotten out of control, I started bleeding on the 15th August right up until the 15th September, and even so I had to take medication to slow down the bleeding, since than I’ve had light spotting and found out today being the forth day of the spotting that I’m bleeding again, I’m not sure if its due to the clomid I’ve been taking to help increase ovulation, but I’m really concerned and so afraid right now, yes I’ve been to my Gynecologist who has no idea why I’m bleeding so much, I’ve got no infections or anything, I haven’t been on birth control or anything that could have triggered the bleeding! Please if someone can relate to my story or if you have any advise it would be highly appreciated (stressed and confused Jules)

  69. shaelin September 19, 2011 at 6:16 pm ·

    Hi I am 20 years old and it is Monday Sept 19 and I missed my pill on Friday Sept 16 and Sat Sept 17 then Sunday I just remembered it in the evening time. This is my first time taking the pill kind of bitch control but I have been on them for about three months now and my period has always came three days into the week you take the sugar pills. I have four more days until the sugar pills start so that would be Sept 24 th. This past week has been pretty stressful and I haven’t even been taking the pill at the same time everyday but I usually do. So my issue is that I just went to the bathroom and had blood when I wiped it was very pink and red and my period shouldn’t come until seven more days, could I be pregnant??? My fiance would be extremely excited and happy but I am the more logical thinker and don’t think it is the right time for us. But if I just happen to be id be reallly happy that it just happened and I didn’t have to make the decision yes or no lol :) so please help me out because me and my fiance are clueless! :)

  70. shaelin September 19, 2011 at 6:19 pm ·

    Oh yeah! And we definitely have had unprotected sex since I missed my pills.

  71. Katie September 20, 2011 at 12:22 pm ·

  72. Lacy September 20, 2011 at 8:48 pm ·

    So I just had my little girl June 3, 2011. I have been breastfeeding but this past month I havent been making enough but for night feedings only & 1 pump session during the day. Out of the blue two days I spotted pinkish brownish. I took a pg test & neg. So I’m thinking since the first time I got pg that is exactly the first sign.

    Hi, I need a little help. My Fiancee and I are TTC and I am kind of think it may have happened. I started spotting last night and it continued until this morning. I ws supposed to ovulate on 09/16. Do you think it could have been implantation spotting? I dont want to get my hopes up and its not. But someone please let me know what they think. Thanks.

  77. Jordan September 24, 2011 at 3:43 pm ·

    okay so i’ve gotten this random spotting yesterday and its stopped now, i’m concerend because i fooled around with my boyfriend on monday i was thinking may be prego, but then agian the same thing happened 2-3 weeks ago. AND also i haven’t gotten a regular period in around 3-4 months because, weel this is what i think, i had it going good before my close friend started her birth control, also my mom is starting to have her period come every 2ish months, so could it also be because of the women around me are having there period at funny times too? or what? please help!

  83. Brittany October 6, 2011 at 9:17 am ·

    Hi, I’ve never done this before but i will explain what i am experiencing. Ok, about two weeks ago i had unprotected sex with my bf and two days later had pinkinsh bloody mucus. About four days later I got my period, but it wasn’t that heavy like normal and only lasted four days. When it ended it was brown and had pinkish blood in it then it was over? Its been four days since my period and i still feel bloated, gassy, bubbly, sore muscles around my abdominal, nausea, itchy, sleepy, drained, urinating, emotional…..but my boobs are not sore? I took a test but i think it may have been too early, it was negative? so i don’t know. Help??

  84. Brittany October 6, 2011 at 9:35 am ·

    Also, Just yesterday i slept almost all day. Woke up, and was sore and felt like i was starving but when i ate i felt sick afterwards? And this never use to happen but now i have developed a mild case of acid reflux after i eat? and i have been getting a little warmer in temperature? I just wanna know what might be going on? im curious.

  85. stacey October 6, 2011 at 10:44 am ·

  86. Anonymous Me October 8, 2011 at 2:13 pm ·

    hi so me and my boyfriend have been trying to conceive for about two months now. this month (October) I was supposed to have my period on the 1st but it was three days late, when it came it wasn’t like my normal period and only lasted for four days. i have been having pains all over my body. very sore. ive had this horrible headache since this bleeding/spotting started now its stopped and I still have this headache, sore-ness, back pain, leg pain and feel like vomiting. I don’t know what’s wrong with me anyone’s help would be great.

  87. jemma October 9, 2011 at 9:14 pm ·

    My last period was on 9/9/11 and the one before that was on 8/12/11 with a 28dc. My cycles range from 24-32 so and it’s pretty inconsistent. We had sex using a condom on 9/21 9/28 and 10/5 and my expected period was this past 9/7. No period on 9/7 but I had a brown discharge stain on my underwear on 9/8 and today 9/9 all day I had light pink to light brown to brown mucousy discharge but only when I wiped.
    I had a 103.4 fever about a week ago and constipation a couple days ago but that’s passed (loosely might I add) these past two days 9/8 – 9/9. I’m worried because I haven’t experienced this sort of discharge, at least I don’t remember and since my cycles are so inconsistent, I can really either be experiencing as what other forums and articles have said as “pre-period” where you shed old blood before your actual period flows (again that’s never happend to me) OR I could actually be pregnant.
    I’m not experiencing any bothersome pms signs like cramping, just a little discomfort from my recent constipation episode and the aches from passing loose stool.
    Is two days late too early for a pregnancy test?
    Could this be possible implantation bleeding?
    Or something else?

This week before I expected my period start next week, I have light brown/pink or red spotting. And I’m hot on/off few days. Could this implanting bleeding? Early pregnant symptom? Or something else?

  96. Sara October 20, 2011 at 12:10 pm ·


    I am a 20 yr old female.

    I was wondering if I could be pregnant. I noticed about a week ago while I was at work that I had started to have little hot flashes that were just uncomfortable and made me feel a little nauscious. I have been feeling bloated lately and yesterday noticed for the first time that the upper portion of my breasts are extremely sore. Today while at work, when I used he bathroom I noticed the tiniest drop of blood in my underwear. I was wondering if this would be sign of pregnancy. I have unprotected ex with my boyfriend and lately have been feeling an extreme urge to have sex. I don’t have morning sickness but feel woozy throughout the day at different times. When I feel like I may get sick it comes up as a sort of acid reflex hiccup. My period is not due until the 29th about a week away. What do you think this may be?

    Is it pregnancy or some other health condition.

    Thank you! Please help!!

  97. Sara October 25, 2011 at 12:09 am ·

    Hello! I’m 24 years old. I’ve been on birth control since I was 15 years old because I had a very heavy and irregular period. I’ve been experiencing bladder pressure for almost a week now. I am due to start my period this week. I have had spotting the last 3-4 days. My breasts are tender (but that is a typical signal that my period is coming). My biggest concern is the brown colored spotting that has been pretty persistent and this pressure on my bladder. There is no pain, so I very much doubt it is a bladder infection. I have hyperthyroidism and am on medications to correct my symptoms and issues with that. My doctor told me if I were to get pregnant it would be a high risk pregnancy. Also, I just recently was let go at my job. So stressed. Job interview this Wednesday. If anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated and I’ll let you know what I make out…did I mention I smoke? I am afraid to smoke at this point because of the chance I may be pregnant. Maybe a good thing.

  98. Gabby October 26, 2011 at 2:51 pm ·

    Hi, i had unprotected sex towards the end of september but he pulled out before ejaculating. I have a very irregular period. I’ve gone 2 and a half months without my period before. Last time i had my period was August 12-17. I experienced spotting in late september, and thats never happened to me before. I don’t have any pregnancy signs at all, only cramps here and there. Does this mean i’m pregnant?

  102. Kendra November 14, 2011 at 6:45 am ·

    Hi, my name is Kendra. I usually start my period around the 2nd to last or last week of the month, but this month i started a week early. and it wasn’t a normal period cycle like usual either. I had very light bleeding that was brownish in color the first 2 days with no cramps at all, when usually my 1st day of my period is very heavy and crampy. The second night however around 10:30 at night i started to get some cramps that were pretty bad but not as bad as usual. so i took some Tylenol and went to bed. this morning i changed my tampon and the bleeding was slightly more heavy with a redder color to it. and I am still having slight cramps this morning. I am wondering if this could be implantation or just an irregular period? as this is my first episode with this kind of thing happening with my period. can anyone help>?

  103. Jill November 14, 2011 at 12:12 pm ·

    Hi Kendra, We are not medical doctors here at UrbanMommies, however based on our experience, you can wait a couple of days and get a sensitive pregnancy test. The best option, though, would be to see your health professional. We hope this helps, and wish you the best!

  109. Anna November 29, 2011 at 6:24 pm ·

    Hello! Ive finished my period around the twentieth, before thanksgivings( So Happy About That) and I usually wont start until around the 16th. Well its been a week,maybe a day or two over. I woke up and went to the restroom as everymorning and I sometimes have a light brown stain on the paper that I think is just poop I accidently dont wipe off becuase I wipe upwards. Well I got home after school, used the restroom and found the stain there again and I didnt mind, but after going to the store real quick for a sandwhich I used the bathroom at home and found my underwear stained some brown/pink and then wiped my self to check(I hadnt peed yet) and found there was a small blot of reddish and the paper was more pink like my period blood. I thinks it spotting but Im Anemic(Told last december) and use the bathroom twice to poop(or try to because I get the feeling sometimes) and sometimes Ill just stay in there a little extra to read or listen to my music and relax.
    Can I get some advice and reassurance? Im 15,never had sex and take no pills.

    hi im 21 and i started spotting on the 21st of this month november…and ive been bleeding ever since…and its not even to were i have to were a tampon it only shows when i wipe….an its been like 9 days??could i be pregnant?? please help me

  111. Olivia December 1, 2011 at 4:48 pm ·

    I’ve never been early when it came to my period… if anything I was either ontime or late! I normally have a 30 day cycle… my period this month was due on the 29th, but on the 25th & 26th I had some light pinkish and brownish spotting, I assumed my period was going to follow but its been 6 days now and nothing has happened. Everywhere I look online it suggests that this could be implantation bleeding and that I’m pregnant… I’m taking a test tomorrow morning because like I said I can be late so I thought about waiting a couple days before testing. I’ve had a couple other early pregnancy symptoms but don’t know if its just my mind playing tricks on me… so tomorrow we’ll see.

  112. Sierra December 2, 2011 at 7:10 am ·

    I”m on eurva (birth controle patch) but i was on some meds that may have messed with my patch.

  116. Linda Loohoo December 11, 2011 at 8:50 pm ·

    Hi I am 11 years old. As soon as I got my period for the first time, I knew that I was old enough to bear a child. I was asked out on November 4th by my lovely boyfriend who is 17. (He thinks I’m 14- I’m pretty mature for my age). That night I made love to him, it was magical. He thought I was on birth control but I could never ask my parents for that. I haven’t gotten my period since that night. I’ve been throwing up this past week when I wake up. Someone help me………….I need a miracle.

  117. Allie December 11, 2011 at 8:59 pm ·

    Dear Linda Loohoo,
    It is girls like you that break my heart. Eleven and pregnant? What were you trying to become a member of the next season of MTV’s 16 & Pregnant??? Ya well that was pretty dumb, seeing as you are ELEVEN! You’re life would most likely be depicted on an episode of cops; you’re lovely boyfriend being dragged away in handcuffs. I wish you all the luck raising a baby that will grow up hating you for “making love” to all her boyfriends. You sound like a peach :)

  118. Cindy December 13, 2011 at 2:36 pm ·

    Are you serious Linda?

  128. tori January 8, 2012 at 8:49 am ·

    So I am 19 years old. I was supposed to start my period two days ago, I’m s little concerned because the days after the last day of my last period, I had UN protected sex, then 6 days later I was having spotbleeding, it want a heavy flow so I know it wasn’t my period, plus I just had my period. This spot bleeding lasted for 12 days. Which now leads with no period and I don’t know what’s going on! Someone please help me!

  129. erin January 9, 2012 at 10:17 am ·

    im, 26, no kids and my period has always been somewhat normal, never missed one, this past month i experienced spotting about 2weks before my period, when my period was due i got it, i then started spotting again and have been for about 3 days now, what the hell is going on???

  130. lizzieann January 11, 2012 at 7:24 pm ·

    .Hi, my period came on very early this month stayed on for 4days went off came back on next night with dark pinkish blood what does that mean?

  131. Rachelle January 17, 2012 at 6:51 pm ·

    Well i spotted three days last month but never had my period.I took a test and it said negative. Normally it comes on the 10th of every month but hasnt came this month either. Could i be pregnant or is it just a mix up in my menstrual cycle lol Ive been trying to have another baby for about 6months but no luck yet . I dont want to get my hopes up yet but im anxious about it .

  132. Lauren January 22, 2012 at 12:31 pm ·

    I just wanted to say that it’s perfectly normal to have a bit of brownish discharge between period cycles. I’m 16 and am still a virgin, and yet I have experienced a bit of “spotting” during my ovulating week. My doctor said it was perfectly fine; so if there’s not a chance of you getting pregnant and you’ve experienced the same thing I have, then trust me: you’ll be fine! :)

  133. kayy January 23, 2012 at 10:15 am ·

  136. Linda January 26, 2012 at 12:25 am ·

    hi, i was just wondering if anyone could please help answer a question…I had unprotected sex but he didn’t go inside me & then a week or so later give or take a day I started spotting, it was a brownish color but it wasn’t enough to even get on my underwear i only noticed it when i wiped (sorry for being gross)…it lasted two to three days & ive always had extremely heavy periods (& by heavy i mean having to sleep with a dark towel under me because i would leak even with a tampon & 2 pads)..i already have a one year old son & didnt have any kind of bleeding infact i skipped a period before getting pregnant with him! This is so not a good time for me to be pregnant but is it a possibility even though he didn’t go inside me? im also having some cramping like my period is coming (its been 33 days since ive had unprotected sex) & i remember thats how i felt when i found out i was pregnant with my son..if anyone has anything to say that may help please do so!!

  137. Linda January 26, 2012 at 7:55 am ·

    to Ashley, when i found out i ws pregnant with my son i was only 5 weeks 10 days & the reason i went for a test is because i was experiencing symptoms of pregnancy like tender breasts morning sickness tiredness cravings & at first i thought it was just my period coming because i had cramping but the doctor said that cramping was my uterus i would go to the doctors for a test just to be sure!

  138. Dystany January 31, 2012 at 10:30 pm ·

    Hello, My period was ten days late and when its about to come i usually have tender breasts and slight cramping but i had none. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. I began spotting on the tenth day first it was pink then it would go to slight red. But its Ironic because It barely touched the pad and the only time i saw it was when i wiped. Also i usually have a 6 to 7 day cycle. but it stopped at day four. Could I be pregnant or do you think that something could be wrong

  139. alexandria February 4, 2012 at 6:01 pm ·

    im 17 and i had unprotective sex jan. 1 and everything started jan 5 and i had my first period jan 12 and it went off 13 then i had unprotected sex again, then my period came again jan 24 and went off 27 and i beeen having all these symptoms like, using the bathroom every ten seconds, eating alot, sleeping, backaches and headaches,felling sick, my stomach starting to feel hard, but i took a home pregnancy test in the begiining of feb, and it came back negative, but other ppl saying i prolly could still be pregnant

  143. samantha February 8, 2012 at 1:32 pm ·

    I’ive been spotting for 2 days.On the second day during intercourse with my hubby it came down just it bit more i think it was just because of the pressure during sex, but after sex it went back too being light pink. On the third day when i woke up it stopped nada at all im worried cause i took a pregnancy test and it said negative i still havent got my period and i not pregnant altho im trying to get pregnant,my body feels normal i have no cravings no pregnancy symptoms at all can somebody please help.

  144. College Girl February 8, 2012 at 2:29 pm ·

    Please tell me this is not my actuall fate. I’ve already had a pregnancy test and both said negative. Does that mean I’m safe? Because I don’t normally spot before my period or when I do it occurs about an hour afterwards. But I’ve been spotting since this morning and not very much at all, but enough to tell hey mabye my period is here. Please tell me this sometime’s occurs and dosnt always mean that your pregnant? And If i am can I still go to school? Or does this mean my life is over? (Also if i were I do plan to allow someone to adopt it)

  145. jodie February 10, 2012 at 2:53 pm ·

    Okay so I had unprotected sex saturday and sunday (4th and 5th) yesterday the 9th I had two small patches of pinkish coloured discharge, wiped and iv not seen anything since just had normal healthy discharge.

  147. Adriena February 11, 2012 at 10:24 pm ·

    ok a month or so ago i had a strange period which isnt unusual to me, but the weeks before i thought i might have been pregnant but my period came but instead of having a long painful period i had 3 day one with light bleeding for a few hours before some heavy bleeding set in then the heavy bleeding just stopped..and i had maybe 3 small clots and the pain was gone! And i didnt have to take no medication to get rid of the cramps! They just stopped, and after the heavy bleeding my flow went from light to real light then gone the very next night. I’m thinking well it was a freak period again so i went on about my business for about a few days after my period when while i was at work( a cashier at a grocery store) i was checking a lady out and by accident the case over her pound cake came off(I love me some pound cake! Lol) But when the smell hit me i gagged! I was like whoa! So i started doing reasearch around different sites and each one was helpful but i want to know for myself if i could be pregnant, because i didnt ovulate this month but i feel some cramps here and there but not on going. Certain smells hit me hard to a point of gagging or making me irritable. Then I had a bad cold for 2 weeks and im just getting over a sinus infection which had me feeling bad but the nausea had stop for that time though and now im getting the nausea back, unforturnaly im craving, my breast arent that sore but my nipples are darker and a ring of dark bumps have formed around my aerola area and some white bumps all of the sudden showed up and when run my finger over my nipples i feel a damp moist like feeling coming out on my finger. I need help i need to know whats going on with me!

  148. Courtney February 12, 2012 at 12:16 am ·

    HI. i am 18 and have been on bc for almost 4 months now. i missed a inactive pill (which they said you really dont have to take) and 1 active that i didnt make up for. anyways i continued on the pill(mind you my doctor swiched it thats why i missed the 2 days) 3 days into taking my boyfriend and i had unprotected sex when he was about to hit his climax to ejaculate he pulled out. a week after i took a hpt and it was negative. the past few months i have been getting my period every 2 weeks and it starts off brown then turns into red. currently it started brown i was just wondering could this be a sign of pregnancy because i missed one pill technically? please help i am freaking out.

  149. Chelsea February 12, 2012 at 7:41 am ·

    My January menstrual cycle started with spotting, without cramps. About 3 or 4 days later, I had intense cramps and heavy bleeding, so my period did start. My February menstrual cycle had no spotting, but started a week early.

  150. Chelsea February 14, 2012 at 6:08 am ·

    btw, i’m 23. And, getting married in 6 months

  151. Fran February 15, 2012 at 1:03 pm ·

    Ok so I never thought I would ask anyone online but here goes. I had unprotected sex Feb 4th & 5th and he pulled out. I got what I thought was my period on the 9th which was 9 days early and it barely lasted a day, so I’m guessing it wasn’t my period, could this be implantation bleeding? We had sex again last night this time he came inside of me. How long should I wait to take a test? Am I already pregnant ? I just don’t know what to do! Please help

  152. Abby February 16, 2012 at 11:24 am ·

Also, my period isn’t supposed to start til next week. I did have unprotected sex the day before this started. On that third day I took all three days worth of pills and have taken them good all week, but I’m still having cramps and some spotting, what could this mean?

    Hi, my name is Danielle and I am 19. On December 28 of 2011 my boyfriend at the current time and I had unprotected sex. The next morning I took the Next Choice pill (Plan B generic pharmaceutical version). A side effect was delayed period. I did not come on my period in January and February is ending and I still have not come on. I have taken two pregnancy test and they both said negative. Well last Tuesday I had spotting in my panties. Sometime this week on two occasions when I’ve wiped myself, I had little pink stains on the tissue. I’m not sure what is going. Is it too late to get pregnant? Why did the tests come back negative? Why have I not had a period for 2 months? Why am I spotting? Is it implantation bleeding? Is it too late to consider pregnancy?….. I’m lost and have all these unanswered questions, can somebody PLEASE help me? It would be greatly appreciated if anybody with any advice or personal experience could email me at PLEASE AND THANK YOU in advance!

    Hey everyone I am 19 years old . My whole life I have had regular menstrual cycle until now . A few weeks ago me & my fiancé had intercourse and I’m not sure if I am prego . My cycles are usually really heavy and last around 4-5 days . And my cycle likes to jump around from the beginning of the month to the end or vice versa . Well last cycle I have was January 24 and this last one I started was feb 21, I have been bleeding for almost 9 days which is not normal but it’s not a heavy flow. It’s more of spotting . I use tampons and barley a drop is in it after 8 hours . The color is light brownish , pink, red . I have incountered problems using the restroom #2 but having been peeing a lot . and I have been having HORRIBLE cramping here and there . If anyone can help out with advice it would be much appreciated :)

  168. Tracy March 4, 2012 at 5:57 pm ·

    I am 36 and I have had unprotected sex with my BF. I got my last period on Feb 13 and I am supposed to get my next period in the next couple of days. The thing is 12 days after my last cycle I had some spotting and I spotted another 2 times since then. I am starting to bleed since yesterday but it is lite. I have noticed that the last couple of cycle have been arriving a little earlier and not as heavy as usual. Should I be worried or am I just going thru perimenopause.

Whjat does this mean someone people help me ASAP im scared out of my mind!

  172. Cheyanne March 9, 2012 at 5:25 pm ·

    Can you guys update pleaseeee!!!!
    So basically here’s my dilemma … I’m 16 years old and sexually active … Me and my boyfriend have been sexually active for 2 years and never expirienced anything like this before… I missed 1 of my birth control pills last Saturday and didn’t make it up and me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex on Monday we’ve had unprotected sex earlier throughout the month as well but I never missed a pill till Saturday… So on Thursday I got this brown discharge and it’s been going on for 4 days I’m supposed to get my period next tuesday… But could this brown discharge mean something is going on? If I’m pregnant my mom would kill me she doesn’t even know in sexually active and she is very strict.. Can anyone come up with any reasons for this besides possibly being pregnant…?

    Hello, I was curious as to if birth control could give you breast tenderness even after taking it for 3 months. I have never taken my birth control pill at the same time each day, and I only missed one day out of all three packs. Now I’m have major breast tenderness and food cravings. Could this just be a result of my birth control, or could I be pregnant?

  174. Cassie March 9, 2012 at 8:14 pm ·

    I was 16 when I had my first child. I’m 19 now. I am having the same problems as you are. Please update me and let me know what happens for you and I will do the same. Sometimes brown discharge is just your bodys way of “cleaning it out” or preparing itself for your peiod. It may also be spotting due to your birth control. Either way, update me.

  175. Cassie March 9, 2012 at 8:15 pm ·

    Talk to your doctor. Something doesn’t seem right, obviously. Something may be wrong. I doubt it’s pregnancy. Chances seem slim. It may be though. Let me know.

  176. Cheyanne March 10, 2012 at 11:45 am ·

    I will update but discharge stopped today but no signs of period yet :/

    Hi, i had unprotected sex a week ago, 2 days after coming off my period, a week later i have started spotting, not much blood, just a little bit, this is the first time anything like this as ever happened, also have belly/back ache and need to go to the toilet all the time. Am really worried i am pregnant, Is there a strong chance? And when would be the quickest i could find out? thanks.

    I’m 24 and am suppose to start my period any day now but for the past 2 days I have been spotting a darkish brown color I’ve never had this happen before my period. i’ve never spotted before. This is strange for me. Me and my boyfriend had sex a few days ago and never bleed after. Is something wrong with me? Is this normal? Could I be pregnant? I would love it if I was. Any help with this would be awesome! ^_^

  186. heather March 15, 2012 at 1:43 pm ·

    Hi me and my boyfriend of 4 years are trying to concieve. The last 2 yrs we haven’t had any luck :( if I calculated it right we had sex 2 weeks after my last period which would make us having sex in the ovulation period. 3 days after having sex I noticed a brown discharge no order or discomfort but it has me excited/worried im not due for my period till at least the 23rd of this month. The only time I have had this brown discharge was either right before my period or as im ending my cycle. Im on day 3 of this brown discharge and the color hasn’t changed like normally. Could I be pregnant? Could mine and my boyfriends dream to become parents finally come true? I could sure use some advice please keep us in your prayers pray we can finally have our own bundle of joy :)

I woke up this morning with no spotting on my panty liner but a little spotting of pink discharge when I wiped. Could somebody please help me understand what might be going on? Like I said in my previous post im not due for a period till at least the 25th and even when I had that one it was on time and the normal 5-7 cycle. Could I possibly be pregnant?

  198. Collage March 26, 2012 at 3:20 pm ·

    I’ve never posted on one of these forums before, but I had intercourse with my boyfriend last Sunday(the 18th) for the first time and after that I have been spotting brown and red. It is a bit watery but we did use protection. At first we wanted to try it for a few seconds, then decided he needed to put on a condom. My period is due sometime next week, but I have been reading up and have been freaking and stressing out. I know that if could be from it being a bit irritated, but it’s still very scary. It’s also hard to tell when my period is because it’ll skip a few months. I plan on going out to buy a test to make sure that am not preg. I know some people are telling me not to stress out too much, but I really want to be safe and make sure. ;n;

  199. sharon victor March 27, 2012 at 9:52 am ·

I got my period on in march like normal (well it was a day early) it lasted 6 days then 12 days later just for one day not even the whole day just a few hours i was spottin a really light, light pink. I should be starting next week. I usly get tender breast about a week before i start and i have not yet. I took a test today but it was negative. not sure if it was just a little to early or what. Any ideas?

  202. alicia April 6, 2012 at 6:25 am ·

    Soo I just gotta say… there is a 15 year old girl on this fourm who’s TRYING to have a baby and no one said anything?? Well sweetie I really really hope you read this and you haven’t already done it but dude I’m your steriotypical 16 and pregnant and this is my second! Now I would never give up orion or serenity but I strongly suggest you wait. Yea they are the joy of my world but if. I could go back and wait I would have kept my childhood a long while longer… sweetie your still in school and if you have a job at 15 that’s what’s up but that will only get you so far. I mean I. Work but I. Just barely have the means to support my first child and now there’s another on the way. So a few extra bucks isn’t gonna get you verry far. I dunno… I guess do what you want sweetie but just think about what I said. I mean you only get to be a kid once

  203. lulu April 8, 2012 at 8:52 am ·

  204. Alli April 8, 2012 at 11:13 pm ·

    I am 20 yrs old and am on a trial of the 3 month Seasonle birth control. I started the pill in January after I had my normal period and took the pill religiously never missing a pill or and rarely varying the times of day by more than a few hours everyday. For most of the trial over my boyfriend and I have used extra protection (condoms) besides the pill, but recently have had a couple incidences where we have not. In the warnings on the pill info I read that spotting may be normal. I have had a brownish discharge that occurs on and off through out the day for about four days now. This discharge is sometimes accompanied by very mild cramps. Could this just be my body preparing for the long awaited period( after a few months), or should I be worried about an infection or even pregnancy?

  205. E.Mendoza April 23, 2012 at 9:14 am ·

    I’m 23, I’ve been on birth control for 6years. Me and my husband went out of town and I forgot to bring my birth control we had unprotected sex and today I wake up seeing more than spotting… Could I be pregnant?

  206. IVD1 April 25, 2012 at 10:18 am ·

I’m going crazy as I don’t know what it is, can anyone help me?

    Hi i am 25 years old i have been having the same problem, I actually had my period twice this month but I was thinking that it was because I missed a few of my birth control pills so I decided to stop taking them for this month so i threw that pack away and decided to just wait until next month to start a new pack. My period stopped a week an a half ago i have had unprotected sex in between the two periods and after, i started spotting thursday and I still am, its very light an i have mild cramps with the spotting could i be pregnant what does this mean? I always have normal periods and nothing like this has ever happened before why is my body acting like this, kinda nervous..

  210. S24 May 10, 2012 at 3:34 pm ·

    I am 24 years old. I have been on the pill for 6 months or so. Before this I was off for a yr (but constantly on the pill for 2 yrs before). I am on tri-cyclen low. I am a sunday start…I missed the first saturday and next sunday of my pill pack. I took them both together when I remembered…and then took the Monday pill. I had intercourse with my boyfriend on the next tuesday (a day later). I have ALWAYS had a normal cycle….about a week after intercourse I felt crampy and I have some brownish red discharge. This has been for 3 days now. I have never had spotting in my life while on or off the pill.
    I am concerned I am pregnant. Should I take a test now? Or wait a week to see if my period comes normally?

  216. cassie May 26, 2012 at 1:14 am ·

    Hi, its really been a steepy road for me. I did the blood tests at the doctor and I was neg and so I went to see the gyno he put me under scan and said I have a small cyst and I don’t need to worry about it it will go away when my period come. So I waited for my period and the paid got less sharp as days pass by, doctor gave me pills to regulate my hormones as the ec messed up my cycle he gave me “Duphaston 10mg” to drink for 10 days and told me my period will come after 10 days and it didn’t come. So my results for pap smear came back normal and they told me I have bladder infection so a day before I could finish “Duphaston” they called me to get pills for bladder infection so they gave me “Zinnat 500mg” I took these pills for only 2 days then now as I type I have started my period. The last time I saw my period was 5th April and today is 26 May. You can imagine my stress all through. I have been where you are, wondering if I’m pregnant or not, brown spotting thinking its your period, getting some silly non-existing symptoms of pregnancy but preg test come back neg. I’ve been there stay strong. I did for almost 2months.

  217. melissa June 1, 2012 at 1:02 pm ·

  220. Jj June 10, 2012 at 9:13 pm ·

    i started my period when i was 8 and half i had it only one time then went away until i was 11 it was norma up until l when i was 14/15 it got all weird again i went to the doctors and they told i wasnt regular so they put me on birthcontrol im currently off it was making me gain weight, have really bad mood swings, headaches, bad cramps, stomachaches,sometimes pain under my belly button n sometimes where my ovarys are so i decied to not take anymore. i dint think that was normal for me to expericene eveything i was goin thru. my doc told me i needed to aleast have my period 4-6 times a year n it was normal if i dont i need to get back on birth control our mentroul cycle changes everytime you have it. it can be because you need more iron in your body or you have more body fat that your bodys needs or u lost body fat n your bodys need more of it can be lots of things the best way to know whats happenin is to go to the doctors. (:

  221. Kira June 14, 2012 at 8:22 am ·

    SO im Kira, im 16 and my boyfriend and i have been having sex for a while. and yes, unprotected because he doesnt like condoms. but anyway, ive been bleeding for a week now. but not like the normal spotting. more. and durring dinner time every night my stomach would hurt very bad. we use the pull outt method and most of the time its worked. we were having sex on a daily basis if not every other day . whats going on with me? am i pregnant? please help.

  222. sa June 26, 2012 at 8:10 am ·

    I saw blood when i wiped the day before my period…to date no period. I have sore nipples and some abdominal pain every now and then,…nothing too serious. I am now 1 week 2 days late. Could I be pregnant?

  223. Tanika July 11, 2012 at 8:36 am ·

    Okay, so I’m 17, I have a boyfriend and we are fairly sexually active (unprotected, stupid, I know) I usually have irregular periods, but the last few months they have been on track. I’m not due for my period for another week but about 2 days ago I noticed a brown mucus discharge in my underwear. I’ve never experienced this before my period, only just after it, so I’m a bit curious. The last time my boyfriend and I had sex was 2 weeks ago today, although we had been having sex reguarly during that week. Could this be implantation spotting? Or if not, does anyone know any good information sites on what it may be?

  224. LiveLaughLove July 22, 2012 at 9:36 am ·

    I’m 17 years old. I have always had an irregular period. I get my period every two months. My boyfriend of 2 years,and I had unprotected sex June 28. Which is 3 weeks and 3 days ago. Since I always start on different days I don’t use a calendar. But i have not started this summer so I know I’m suppose to be starting. I have had bad cramps for a week or more. Cramps are never a big problem during my cycle. And I am now spotting(2nd day) I usually get cramps the same day I start. And for some reason i have not started. Is something wrong? I doubt I can get pregnant due to my irregular pd. HELP 

  225. Melissa Zamora July 28, 2012 at 1:11 am ·

    Hi Im 18 yrs old and I started spotting just thiz morning and its really light.. My period iz soposed to start next week.. Am I pregnant? To be honest I want to be pregnant.. I need some help on knowing if I am.. Or what I can do to get pregnant?

  226. rachel September 9, 2012 at 10:32 pm ·

    I’m 20 years old. My boyfriend and I have had protected and unprotected sex. My period usually comes on the 1st or 2nd of the month. I have experienced a little light brown spotting for about 2 days now. I also just started getting cramps. What could this mean?

  227. jahana October 5, 2012 at 2:18 pm ·

    My boyfriend and I were happy as far as I could tell and I never thought that we would break up. When his cousin died in a tragic car accident he went back to us for a week to be with his family. I could not go because I was in the middle of entertaining out of town clients for work. He did not seem to be upset that I could not go so I let him be. The next thing that I know, he reconnected with an old friend from high school that he had a crush on years ago and they started to have an affair! I had no clue what was going on until a month after he came back from us .He proceeded to see both her and I until I caught him testing her one night. I confronted him and he told me the truth about what happened. We broke up and went our separate ways. Neither of us fought for our relationship. I was angry and decided not to be upset about it and just keep it moving. Then after about a month of not speaking to him I became sad. I wanted him to tell me that he wanted to be with me and not her. I contacted Dr.Ancient from ANCIENT BENIN SHRINE for a love spell and he totally helped me! he was able to get him to miss me to where he wanted to get back together again. He had a lot of regrets and felt bad for not fighting to keep me and for cheating in general. He values our relationship so much more now and we are together now! You can also get your lover back with the help of Dr. Ancient contact him through

    So I had sex July 6th and on July 13th I had very little pinkish blood when I wiped, the next day I woke up and I had dark brown blood in my underwear and ive been bleeding. My period is suppose to start July 20th. I took a home pregnancy test and it was negative. So.does this mean I could be pregnant, I need help. Has anyone else had this and they ended up pregnant?

  241. Cindy July 18, 2013 at 8:32 pm ·

    My name is Cindy, I am nearing 27 years the end of this month. I am married and I have a 2 1/2 year old son.. My spouse and I do not use condoms and I am on no types of birth control… We use the pull out method.. yeah I know its not a real form of protection… Now I am what many call hard to get pregnant unlike my mother who is super fertile (she had 9 all in a year apart from eachother). I am not trying to conceive but if it happens it happens (this is our mind set about it)…..
    Ok so I had spot bleeding yesterday evening, like not even spotting really, I went pee and when I wiped it was light pink on the tissue, So I put on a pad thinking my period was coming. I never spotted and even with my son I never spotted before finding out I was expecting. My last known menstrual ended May 29th, I know this because my husband came home from vacation on the 30th.. BUT the other day my son ripped up june and july from my calendar, so i figured my menstrual was around the 24th or so in June , which would mean my period would be around july 24th which is in a week…. I checked with that kotex website with the period tracker, its says my period will be around july 24th but other sites say july 18th which is today 0_o which would mean i missed my period… before the light bleeding i had a very high vaginal discharge, kind of like when i found out i was pregnant with my son… i been very nauseous, so much fatigue, lower back cramps for a day and lower abdomen cramps (not like period cramps, because usually they get so bad they even make my joints hurt), and dizzy spells all like when i was pregnant with my son. but the things is why would i be having pregnancy symptoms if the spot bleeding was implantation bleeding? even i been so moody, like me and my son were watching a cartoon and i started to cry 0_o lol when i was pregnant with my son i used to cry over the toliet paper commercial with the dog and he pushes the tissue under the baby butt as he was falling down, THATS how i knew i was pregnant because i am not one for the crying or “girly” emotions…. NOW according to all the charts and quizes i took it says my fertile days was july 10th 11 12 13 14 not sure which one is my ovulation or if they all are but we had sex at least one of these days for sure, we used the pull out and one night it was ALOT and he was still wanting more so he ummmmmm yeah with his fingers, so i am sitting here think WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON WITH MY BODY!!!! i dont want to do a test just yet, i guess i will wait it out and see what happens, if by the 24th i dont get my menstral its test taking time.. but the odds of me being pregnant are slim to none, i mean it took 6 years for me to conceive my son not to mention this is my second marriage and he now has 2 babies lol and it only took the first time for my husband to get me prgnant (our wedding night)… i really hate not knowing what is going on with my body, UGH *PULLIN OUT MY HAIR! did i mention i am moody? my goodness my husband and son are irratating me right now so dont mind any spelling errors :)

  242. Cindy July 18, 2013 at 8:37 pm ·

    i guess i forgot to mention that the light pink blood was just that one time..
    also among the “symptoms” i am experiencing are that metallic taste.. all signs i had when i was pregnant with my son but it would be way to early for signs right? i am so frustrated right now! omg!

  243. Kathrine July 25, 2013 at 7:18 pm ·

  246. Anonymous August 21, 2013 at 10:05 pm ·

    So I really need help, I had sex 1 week ago 3 days after each other with the same guy and we used a condom each time, now on the 3rd day he had fingered me a bit differently and I was bleeding now 4 days later I saw some blood watery discharge in my panties and my period is supposed to be due in 1 week, when I inserted a tampon and pulled it out after 5 minutes it had absorbed some blood, I havent been sleeping regularly though. I have to say his nail was a bit sharp please help me out, can I still be pregnant even though we used a condom and he pulls out of my vagina with the condom on before he cums and removes it in the washroom. Please help I’m in panic

  247. Kathrine August 26, 2013 at 9:28 am ·

  248. Katie March 12, 2014 at 5:09 am ·

    There are a lot of diseases you can get this way that can cause problems when you want to get pregnant at a later date. 15 is a little too young to be a mom, please rethink things.

  255. Brittany February 2, 2015 at 7:19 pm ·

    So I have been spotting for almost a week now. I am not supposed to start my period for another week. I am 22 years old and this is the very first time I have ever experienced spotting before my period. It started out pinkish brown and now is red and is pretty much like a period.I have really heavy periods but this spotting is not quite as bad as my periods usually are. I am really nervous I might be pregnant but I have been reading up on it and they say implantation bleeding usually last a day and not red. I need help and answers!!

  256. siobhan February 25, 2015 at 11:31 am ·

    Hopefully someone can answer this for me.

    My last period was 3rd of feb 2015 my next is due 3rd of march. I took a test 8 days before period is due and came back a strong positive. I have taken several since and all negative. I’ve had spotting today which is 25th and still negative result. I have had some symptoms like smells. Gone off food ect. The spotting is every now and then with a pinkish brownish discharge. I never spot and never have. I’m hoping for the best but I’m not feeling hopeful. It says implantation bleeding starts around a week before your next period. I slept with my partner on my ovulation days which are between the 14th Feb and 19th of feb. We slept together on 14th and 18th. Any answers pls. thanks siobhan

  257. siobhan February 25, 2015 at 11:35 am ·

    When the uterus is not in its place, spotting may occur. For this (God Willing), you may do the following (found on the internet): Maya Abdominal Massage Self Care Techniques The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage ™ are centered around the ancient Mayan techniques, which reposition organs that have dropped and restricted the flow of blood, lymph, nerve & chi energy. As with any other natural healing, Arvigo Techniques seek to restore the body to its natural balance. This technique is provided for therapeutic self care only and is intended to be used in conjunction with treatments from a professional or certified Maya Abdominal Massage practitioner. Consult for a list of qualified practitioners. To Prepare • Empty your bladder and create a quiet, peaceful environment to relax for 5-10 minutes (just before bedtime is perfect!). • Wear loose fitting clothing with no zippers or buttons over the abdomen. • Lie on your back and place a pillow under your head and your knees to soften your abdominal muscles. (If you have uterine prolapse, it may also be helpful to place a pillow under your hips to elevate your pelvis.) • Breathe deeply and slowly for a few moments until you feel relaxed. Self Care Massage Techniques Lower Abdominal 1. Bring both of your hands together with your index fingers side by side and tuck one thumb under the other. Bring all eight fingers close together, slightly bent and relaxed. See diagram. 2. Through your clothing or a sheet, or with oiled fingers, locate where your pubic bones meet in the middle with your index fingers, and place these fingers on the small indent. Inhale and as you exhale, slowly slide off the top of your pubic bones while keeping your fingernails in contact with the bones. Press as deeply as it is comfortable for you into the soft tissue space above your pubic bone. See Diagram. (If your uterus is too low, you will feel resistance like the consistency of a water balloon.) 3. While maintaining the same pressure, gently and slowly move your fingertips toward your navel. Repeat this stroke from your pubic bone to your navel a total of 3 times. 4. With the same hand position, move your fingertips to one side of your pelvis with the little finger of one hand on the pubic bone and the other little finger on your hip bone. Again bring all eight fingers close together, slightly bent and relaxed. Inhale and as you exhale, slowly slide off the bones and press as deeply as it is comfortable for you into the soft tissue space of the pelvic bowl. 5. While maintaining the same pressure, gently and slowly move your fingertips toward the midline. Repeat this stroke a total of 3 times. 6. Repeat #4 and #5 on the other side of the pelvis. If your uterus is tilted to the left or right, you will feel resistance like the consistency of a water balloon before you get to the midline. 7. Repeat #2 through #6 2 more times, and then repeat #2 and #3 a final time for a total of 30 strokes. 8. Open your hands, reaching as far as possible without lifting your head, and place them flat over the groin where your legs join your pelvis on each side. Stroke softly 4-5 times over your skin and the underlying inguinal lymph nodes toward your abdomen. Continue the same strokes down both inner thighs along the lymph nodes, repeating this stroke 5 times. Upper Abdominal 1. Apply oil or lotion to your fingertips. Make an “M” (for Maya!) with your hands by facing the palms of your hands toward each other and curling your fingers so that the fingernails of all eight fingers touch. Place your fingertips on the center of your upper abdomen just below the ribcage. Inhale, and as you exhale, press as deeply as it is comfortable for you into the soft tissue space. While maintaining the same pressure, gently and slowly move your fingertips toward your navel. Repeat this stroke from your rib cage to your navel a total of 3 times. 2. Place your fingertips on one side of your upper abdomen just below the ribcage. Inhale and as you exhale, press as deeply as it is comfortable for you into the soft tissue space. While maintaining the same pressure, gently and slowly move your fingertips diagonally toward your navel. Repeat this stroke from your rib cage to your navel for a total of 3 times. 3. Repeat # 2 on the other side of the upper abdomen. Then repeat #1, #2, and #3, ending with #1 for a total of 30 strokes. If you find areas of tenderness, pain or congestion, adapt your pressure so that you can continue to relax. Breathe and continue to massage the area. If pain persists, even with a light touch, stop for now. If you experience pain initially, it should gradually diminish with each self care massage. Simply follow these instructions as best you can. After practicing the self care day for several days, you will become more familiar with the massage and more confident in your touch. If you continue to have difficulty, contact your Maya Abdominal Massage practitioner. After Self Care • Drink plenty of water to hydrate your body and support the healing process. Thank yourself for taking the time to take care of yourself. • Honor your experience by paying attention to the changes and responding with what you need. For example, write your feelings in your journal or diary or share them with a trusted friend or therapist. • Repeat the self care massage everyday except 5 days prior to and during your period or for 30 days, and then reduce to 2-3 times a week for your health. When To Modify or Avoid Self Care Massage • 5 days prior to and during your menstrual bleeding, do not deeply massage the uterus, but you may continue doing # 8 over the lymph nodes and the upper abdominal massage. It is okay to very gently and superficially massage over the uterine area prior to and during your period. • During pregnancy, self care massage can be appropriately adapted for your trimester of pregnancy. Consult your Maya Abdominal Massage practitioner for more information. • After abdominal surgery, you must wait until the tissue has healed, and your physician has cleared you for normal activity. For example, with Cesarean birth and hysterectomy, 8-10 weeks after surgery is usually recommended. • If you are taking pain medications or other substances that may mask discomfort and pain, self care massage is contraindicated. • If you have an intra uterine device (IUD) for birth control, #1-6 are contraindicated. • If you are under treatment for abdominal or pelvic infection or cancer, self care massage is contraindicated. • If you experience intense emotional pain during the self care, it is important that you seek professional support to help you pass through the gates of emotional healing. Please consult your Maya Abdominal Massage practitioner for guidance and referral. • If you experience intense pain or discomfort during the self care massage or have a sudden onset of abdominal pain, please consult your Maya Abdominal Massage practitioner who will recommend that you see your physician before continuing the self care massage.
