If you cramp a week before your period, spot then bleed heavy for two days and spot after are you pregnant?

I started cramping a week before my period was due. I was spotting for two days then I began to have heavy bleeding for two days. After the two days of heavy bleeding I began to spot for two days and then nothing. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. My mom and sister thinks it may be to early to detect pregnancy but i think I'm not..although the period was not as heavy as I'm used to and the fact that I don't usually get cramps during my period. Should I take another test? Is something wrong with me?

Hi so I had sex a day after I got off my period around January 7 then on January 23 I had light bleeding then January 26 it gets pretty heavy with clots kind of how my normal period would be but I wasn't suppose to start my period for two more weeks could this still mean I'm pregnant or could it really just be my period starting early

My last menses was on 26th dec so I was ovulating on the 9-12 of jan, I had some abdominal pains on the 9th jan and was diagnosed with UTI (I personally suspect the pain came cos I had started ovulating). I had intercourse the next day which was the 10th. I am expecting my period on 26 jan but since 19th jan I have been feeling very tired, my boobs size have increased and have been so sore that I just remove my bra when I head to bed, my appetite increased to that of two, I have headaches throughout the day and occasionally feel dizzy and light headed, I urinate a lot through the day and I just couldn't sleep well even if i didn't have to urinate I would wake up in the middle of the night thinking that the alarm didn't sound and that I was late for work, my emotions are going crazy and I could even smell my husband's dirty sock which I don't usually notice. I took a home pregnancy test yesterday but it turned out negative. Today I started having cramps, when I visited the ladies I noticed a single light pink/ brown spot then when I went again there was this bright pink/reddish brown blood. It is still 3 days before my expected period. I have never experienced any nausea or vomiting. I have never had any premenstrual symptoms before so I really think that I am pregnant (have this really really strong gut feeling). Could I be pregnant just that the hcg in my urine wasn't enough when I tested?

Thanks in adv =)

My last period was Dec 28th. My cycles are very regular lasting from 28-30 days normally. Jan 17th, I had light brown spotting which I thought could be implantation bleeding. Jan 18th, it turned to light pink spotting. Then in the afternoon, I slipped and fell hard on my shin. In the evening, I started having heavy vaginal bleeding with a few small clots. I'm 7 days before my period should come. Today, Jan 19th, I still have heavy bleeding, maybe a little less than yesterday. I haven't had any cramping either, which I usually do with my periods. Any thoughts what this could be? Am/Was I pregnant? Did I miscarry? Should I go to the Dr?

Hello Heather,

I am concerned that you are having heavy vaginal bleeding with clots. To be safe, call your gynecologist today. It could be a miscarriage but your physician will determine that.

I had spotting for two days than heavy to light bleeding the following 5 days. I have never spotted before my period ever, although I had a D&C 1 month before. I also had unprotected inter course with my partner 2 weeks after my D&C. What could this type of bleeding be ?
