I'm 19 and always have been irregular with my menstrual cycle. I am know 7 months late. This has me terrified because it's been very long. I have also been taking pregnancy test and they always come back negative. I've also have had sudden sharp pain in my lower stomach area. Now im spotting everytime I use the restroom but only as i wipe. I already made a doctor's appointment for next week.
What is going on with me. When i was only 3 months late i went to the doctor and he assured it was normal.

Hi Anon, 

Welcome to EmpowHER! Thanks for your question. I understand your concern. It can be very frightening when you are experiencing abnormal symptoms and are not sure of what is going on with your body. I am glad you made an appointment with a doctor who can examine you in order to make an accurate diagnosis. 

Your doctor will likely run a pregnancy test to rule it out as a possibility. A blood test will often produce more accurate results than an at-home pregnancy test. Cramping is an early sign of pregnancy, but have you experienced any other pregnancy symptoms (i.e. breast tenderness, fatigue, weight fluctuation)? Cramping, missed periods and spotting are also common side effects of birth control.

If you are taking them, your doctor may discontinue your use of hormonal birth control methods to see if your symptoms will go away. Be sure to tell your doctor anything abnormal you have noticed going on with your body and consider visiting a gynecologist (if you scheduled an appointment with a general practitioner). 

Did this answer your question? Check back and let us know how you are doing!

Warm Wishes,

Thank you for advice Shanon.
I am not cramping at all the pain i feel is sharp and very quick.
I also not in any birth control. And i haven't had any other pregnancy symptoms. However I've recently slacked off a lot in my exercise routine, can be a cause of this?
Now i am experiencing an ugly pain but it feels like its coming from inside me (private part). The spotting is now browish.

What do you think this might be?

Hi Beeth,

You are welcome. Brown discharge is common, especially when your period is late. It is your body ridding itself of old blood that would normally be shed during your period. I am not a doctor and cannot offer you an accurate diagnosis. Please consider seeking emergency medical attention if the pain has become unbearable. We hope you get answers to your medical concerns soon!
