I had a light pearod two weeks ago and now I'm spotting. Am I pregnate?

It could be a shift in hormones causing the spotting. Unless it is brown, in that case it would just be old pooled blood that can come down at any time of the month.

If you are still concerned, please see your doctor.

Hi Anonymous,

A light period is a regular period, just lighter. If you are now spotting--sometimes we go through something known as mid-cycle spotting which occurs when you are on birth control pills due to the hormones and sometimes when you are ovulating. Other reasons for mid cycle spotting include: change in weight, change in caffeine intake, and a change in diet. If you have been having unprotected sex and are still concerned about the possibility of pregnancy, then you can take a pregnancy test for ease of mind.

Good Luck,

Thanks but I'm not on birth control and haven't changed anything such as weight or diet.
