Anonymous: Last month I had my period twice, (June 11-19th, June 26- July 1st) and I believe it was because I stopped birth control? My last period ended July 1st. I haven't had a period yet this month in July. My normal cycle runs every 11th to the 18/19th. I haven't gotten a period yet, & my pregnancy test a few days ago was one dark line& one really faint pink line. Should I call my doctor, or take another test?. Just want some input first before I call my doctor& make myself look like a fool!
If you are concerned you may be pregnant and the test result you got from the home test was hard to read, there is nothing wrong with calling your health care provider. That’s what they are there for!
Having another pregnancy test done by a health care provider is probably a good idea. The sooner someone knows that they are pregnant the sooner they can make some important decisions.
I hope this helps!
Anonymous: I'm not sure, but I think I had implantation bleeding. I had sex 7/24, and I spotted a little on 7/27, then again 7/30. [I've been told that those could have been from the sex and from ovulating.] Yesterday, I had terrible cramps and when I went to the bathroom I noticed I spotted again, but a little heavier. I put a pad on and when I went back to change it a few hours later, there was virtually NOTHING on it. I've been cramping and having nausea for about a week now. Opinions?
If you think that you may be pregnant, the only way to know for sure is to take a pregnancy test. The most accurate time to take one is the day before your period is due or if it is late.
You can either take a test at home or in a local clinic. Find free or low-cost and confidential clinics near you here.
If you take a test and it is negative, you may still want to see a health care provider. You seem to be saying that this spotting and bleeding is not normal for you, and you may want to have it checked out by a doctor.
I hope this helps!
