Okay I didn't have a period in April at all....so like last week I took two tests on different days and got negative on both. Yesterday after My fiancé and I had sex I had a little bit of really light red almost pink and there was hardly any of it when I wiped....so I thought I would start my period so I put in a tampon but a little while later when I went to the bathroom there was barely anything on there....just a little bit of light red and then it stopped after that. What's wrong with me?????

Hello Anonymous,

I can think of two possible explanations.

It is possible that you are experiencing some spotting before the start of your period. It is not uncommon for a woman's menstrual cycle to vary in length from one month to the next. In this scenario, you simply wait to see if your period begins in the next few days.

Are you using any type of birth control? If you and your partner have unprotected sex, it is possible that you could be pregnant.
The scanty, pink or light red bleeding could be implantation bleeding. Implantation bleeding normally occurs a week to a few days before your period would normally start.

The negative pregnancy test results could be false negatives. Did you follow the directions carefully and test with the first urine specimen of the day? In this scenario, if you still do not get your period at all this month, test again or make an appointment to be evaluated by your physician. Your doctor can order a blood pregnancy test. If you still get a negative test result, then your doctor can explore other possible reasons for your missed period.
