If you spot during the time you were suppose to have a period, what does that mean? I have taken a first response and a clear blue easy and both show negative. I am concerned...could I still be pregnant? I feel sort of weird down there and cramp of and on like I am going to start so I rush to the restroom and ....nothing! Has anyone ever had this happen? Whats going on?

Hi Faith, I don't know, I'm in the same boat as you. I m/c over a month ago and expected AF, but instead have lite pink with just a touch of blood. My first response says neg. too and cramping. I think you just might be pg because this is my 6th pregnancy ( three of them made it) The symptoms sound like pg. It just might be too early, test again and let me know!


Faith - April 18

Tory, Sorry to hear about your m/c. Did you ever get a positive on a test? I tested again yesterday w/ a clearblue and got a bfn. Still no a/f though. I have NEVER been this late in my life and I am in my 30's. I go to the Dr. today at 2. I will post the news when I get back. I hope she draws blood to make sure either way. Thanks.


Faith - April 18

Well, she drew blood and I will know tomorrow. If it is neg. then she gave me Provera to take to start af and then I will begin clomid. Oh well, lets play the waiting game AGAIN!

I am having the same problem. I am on 3rd round of clomid and have had brown and dark purple spotting for a on and off for a week now. There was more on the weekend but still it was only enough for a pantyliner and it was on and off throughout the day. Plus I have been having cramps. I got blood test done today and hopefully get results later on today. I will let you know what happens.


Faith - April 25

Unfortunately my Doc. suspects that I did not ovulate. She has started me on Provera.


neds - April 26

I had the exact thing happen faith, for 3 mnths
i was diagnosed with pcos. Get urself checked. Good luck


Faith - April 26

Neds, do I have to request my doc check me for pcos? How do they do it? I just finished up Provera and nothing yet.


Neds - April 27

I beleive they'll need to check your bloods or do an ultrasound which will show if you have pcos. At least if you know something can be done. I have been prescribed metformin but can't use it till i've lost a couple of pounds i'm only slightly overweight but thats what my cons has advised. does anyone know if weight has anything to do with the effectiveness of met

what if you have brown and red blood is that mean your spotting or does it mean something else?? i had this last month too and now this month today is my first day of my period...does this mean i am NOT pregnant i hope so!


jane - June 23

what could it mean if my period is late, could it be because my last was early?


lerma - July 6

if your spoting then you might be pragnant coz that one of a signs shows pragnancy. My advice is that if your not sure then you have to take a blood test. This is same thing happened to me now,my last period only lasts 2 days. And i did the test twice and it tells negative until now i dont know still if what is happening to me. I need also some advice.
