So I just starting bleeding this afternoon and I am not sure if it is implantation spotting or if it is my period having come 3 weeks early. I have a bit of cramping in my stomach and back. I have only had a small amount of bleeding, less than a small spoonful probably. So I am crossing my fingers on the implantation bleeding.

Spotting or AF? Has anyone experienced this?

Has anyone experienced a semi-heavy spotting? As far as right now i am unsure if i am pregnant.I have had been sexually active all last week. Now i might be spotting or i may have my period. However, i'm not supposed to get my period untill the 22nd and i got whatever this is the 14th. It was extremely light the 1st day, heavy the next, and now its back to light and it seems to have stopped. It's also a deep redish brown.

Could I be pregnant?

I went to my gynocologist 2 weeks ago because I suspected that I was pregnant. The cyst that froms each month in case the woman gets pregnant had burst (normal) on my right side but remained on my left ovary. My husband and I had had unprotected sex about 1 week prior to that apponintment, so about 3 weeks ago. Because of that last incident, my gynocologist said it was possible that I could still get pregnant from that last time, but that it was too early to tell by ultrasound. My period came last Friday and lasted for two days with average flow.

Should I Continue My Pills?

Dear Midwife,
Hello! I was without my birth control pills for two weeks due to confusion with my doctor's office and pharmacy. One week of this was my period. I took one pill after receiving them and a few hours later, my husband and I had sex. We have had sex several times since then. This was a little over one week ago, and I have started a very light period for 3 days even though I have been taking my birth control pills. Now I have a brownish color. What could this be?
