spotting before period is due
please let me know if it is normal to maybe spot a few days before your period is due?? It is not heavy bleeding at all, and I probably would not notice it if I was not looking for it..(I worry about my health).....I have a great deal of stress lately in my life and wondered if stress could cause spotting and no period as well?? please let me know what you all think..thanks for your help on all...Mainly wanting to know if small amount of spotting brown/red blood may be normal right before period is due..or how stress can affect your cycle as well.....have a great day everyone

Hi, I am a 24 year old woman and for the first time in my life, i have spotting between periods, this is the first time this has happened to me. The spotting ranges from somewhat light period bleeding, to just regular small spotting. The colour goes from pink to red and sometimes brown. I do not think I am pregnant as I haven't had sex since the middle of February (long distance relationship) and have had my period on its regular course every month since then.I am not on any implantation but I am on Tri-quilar, a birth control pill and have been for a few years now. This spotting has started a week before my period and my regular cycle is due to start any day now. I would greatly appreciate somebody helping finding out what is wrng before I start panicking and going to the doctor for no real good reason.

My fiancé and I are trying for our second baby and my period isn't due for few days but I just started spotting, could it implantation bleeding?? I have never started my period this early so I don't think it's my menstrual period. I did take a prego test and it cams back negative. Could it be possible that I am pregnant but too early to test?? I didn't know I was pregnant with my first child, my fiancé knew before me. Now I'm paying real close to my body. If anyone has a similar story please share

I have a question too..  My boyfriend and I have been having sex for a month now. The first two days we used protection.. After that we have had sex about 12 times and it's been unprotected.. He has always pulled out right before ejaculation and when that got out he put his penis right back in.. Another thing he has done is pulled out and nutted all over my butt at times and all over my vagina.. By accident one time I had his nut all over my fingers and stuck them inside me to see if there was any in there.. Not bothering to realize that I had it on my hands. Now, I have spotted very little two days and it was only a wipe when I peed. And only one wipe a day. I have also had slight lower stomach pains.. More like discomfort. At night I have always slept on my stomach and now I can't.. It is so uncomfortable to me so I have to sleep on my side or back. I took a pregnancy test about two weeks ago but I believe it was too sudden to show. My period last month was from the 7-10 and so that makes it early. Could I be pregnant? What should I do? I'm really worried. I want a baby, but not right now. Thanks (:

I'm 18 and i recently got off the pill due to it just making me feel weird, my last period was the 25th of august and I should start around the 23 of this month. We had unprotected sex on the 8th. I started bleeding this morning, it was a brownish/pinkish color (sorry if that's tmi. lol) I'm still spotting tonight but I'm not sure if it's just my body trying to do the natural thing and clean itself or if it's implantation bleeding.  any suggestions or relations?

Okay so I have sex regularly for about two months. Every month I have gotten my period. But I was recently put on the NuveaRing and I have to take it out on the second week instead of the third ( that was about a month ago ) well I have been feeling nauseous , really dizzy, both boobs are super sore ( but no darkness to my areola ) I have been peeing frequently , and I have been having cramps but no period. Well yesterday after sex I started spotting ... then today I woke up and I had bleeding like I am on my period.. does this mean I am pregnant ??

A lot of those are symptoms of being pregnant, but also some of those symptoms wouldn't be pregnancy related, it's too early for some of them, a lot of those don't "kick in" until 6 or 8 weeks or sometimes even later. It is a great possibility though :) I've had the same thing happen to me, it could also be from rough sex, your man may have hit your cervix, and it could also be a miscarriage, i would wait a couple of weeks and take a pregnancy test, good luck!

Ok I'm 34 and I'm not on birth control but have been trying to get pg. My periods have not always been steady on time, about 6 mos ago went a month and a half with no period then started. About the same time ago I had blood wool and a pap and it was all normal. And I have either always been on time or late. About 4 days ago i felt so tired and achey all over with so sore joints like having the bad flu but i didn't feel sick. The next day or-the day after I spotted very lightly and had a really wet whitish transparent discharge. I remember thinking I'm starting early but I wiped again and nothing this has gone on off and on for the past 4 days now and no period. Just light cramping and spotting once to twice a day. My mood has been up and down to and I'm normally easy going but my fiancé and I get into stupid stuff easy right now. I get worried one minute. Then the next I'm bubbly and got energy then bam the bad mood hits again or it's easy for someone to say the wrong thing to get me moody. I took a pg test when I first started spotting with a negative result. Was it to soon to test? Could I infect be pregnant finally???  I have no sore breast. I got just slightly nauseous once.  Boobs are not sore but did have a come and go headache for two days. Anyone got a value cuz I have no insurance and very low on money.

Hi !
I wanted to get some advice I am 31 years old, and I have been trying to get pregnant since last year. I have been getting very light cycles, they are usually brown. Sometimes when I wipe I see a little red but is not often. My cycle only is very short one or two, three the most. There has been months that I've skipped where I didn't get a period at all. Took pregnancy test all negative, I went to my Obgyn and all he did was recommended estrogen pills. He said I had a low estrogen level and it would help me. I took the pills I didn't get pregnant and I'm having the same issues, short periods one or two days the most and its light and brown in color. I don't know what to do, I'm worried please help.

  You could be pregnant.  Wait until you are due for a period and take test with the first urine in the morning.  Immediately, if you are  pregnant,go to a doctor and have them check you because of the bleediing.  You may be miscarrying which is very common, much more than anyone let's on.  good luck

My period was due on the 10th of Feb, and for 3 days starting on the 7th of Feb I was lightly spotting (I've never had this before) and on the 11th of Feb I started lightly bleeding with light cramp on my left side on and off (my periods are always heavy and I get really bad cramp) and this has been going on for 3 days now + every time I wipe I harldy notice anything but enough to wear a pad and( I have also never had this before) I have took two Pregnancy Tests, and both come out Negative ( took one on the day of Missed Period and the other one Yesterday) is it too early too test or is it because I'm still lightly bleeding? Am I pregnant or not? I'm so confused! Hopefully someone can help me out.. If you want to know anything else then by all means ask! Thank you x

I think you're dumb. Why are you having unprotected sex at 13? Where are your parents? Why aren't you on birth conrol. You're not even old enough to work, how would you support a baby? I mean seriously. The Idiocracy theory demonstrated right here.

My period is due in 3 days. 2 days ago I noticed some light pink spotting when I wiped. I also had this about 7 days ago. I've never experienced anything like this before. My period is almost always 27 days apart and last 3-5 days. Anyone have any ideas as to the spotting? I did have unprotected sex during the time that the ovulation calculator says I should of ovulated. But I really am not sure how accurate that is.
Thanks!

I am 20 years old and I got my last period on 26th of February. I had sex on 22nd March, 4 days before the expected date of my periods. After 3 days of having sex I noticed a small amount of discharge from my vagina for about 1 hour and then it's over. 18 hours have passed and it's nothing. I have never got spotting before my periods.  i could have got my periods by now and I am getting cramps from 2 days. Can I be pregnant?
