Hi, my last menses was on 17th Aug. My husband and I had been trying to conceive for the past 4 months. We had sex on 31 Aug, 2nd and 4th Sept. I had brown discharge on 7th Sept then it stopped and had light pale pinkish discharge day on the 13th Sept and had brown spotting since. Nothing heavy, only when I go to the toilet or when I wipe. I have always been pretty regular with my cycle of between 29 to 31 days. Now, I am about 2 to 5 days late and still no sign of my menses. We did a HPT 2 days ago and seem to have a faint line but we are not sure. COuld be neg. So, my question is, could I stil be pregnant?

I have my period in 11/21. I started spotting on 11/14 but just after I wipe I can see a little bit of brown blood. I've been feeling weird like bloated, headaches. I took a pregnancy test 11/17 (today) it was negative. I started having some cramps. I don't suppose to have my period till 11/21 I'm very regular but I feel to weird I'm wondering if I'm pregnant or if is too early to know. Can somebody tell me ;-(

I had my last period on 11/21. A week ago I started having white discharges. On 11/14 I noticed that I was spotting blood was reddish. I have been spotting for the last 3 days but the blood is brown. Today is 11/17 I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. I've been feeling weird I have headaches I feel bloated, I've been having diarrhea just today I feel little cramps. I don't suppose to have my period till 11/21 I'm very regular. But my symptoms are weird can I be pregnant?

Hi Coriela,

A faint positive is still a positive, so please take another pregnancy test to make sure. Then go ahead and schedule an appointment with your doctor.

Best Wishes,
