I really want the answer to this as well...?
It may be .. but it also be a sign of a miscarriage
Because it gets heavier and then the cramps mean you are in puburty
Spotting before you get a heavier flow is very normal...If you are normally like clockwork and you only have spotting and do not get a regular flo within the next 3-4 days then it is very possible that you are pregnant and that the spotting is implantation bleeding.
No. Spotting is probably implantation bleeding. You would know if you had miscarried because it would be heavier and painful
A small amount of spotting will not interfere with the pap results, while heavier bleeding may. Ask your health care provider for advice specific to your situation.
You should take a pregnancy test to be safe.
Call your doctor immedeatley they should be able to fit you in or go to the hospital. I had bright red spotting aroun 11 weeks that became heavier and when I went to the doctors I was told I was miscarrying. Every woman is different obviously but when you are pregnant there is no need to leave anything to chance! Good Luck!
Spotting before your period is just very light menstrual flow, it's the process of the uterus lining shedding starting - once it gets under way the bleeding becomes heavier.
I had a miscarriage about a month ago. First I started spotting after a pelvic exam which I believe is perfectly normal and does not mean you're going to have a miscarriage. Instead of the spotting getting better after a few days, it got worse, turning from brown to red and getting heavier. After about 4 days of this red, heavier bleeding (not as heavy as a period, but clumpy and heavier than spotting), I started having cramps one night after work (Election Night, to be exact). The cramps came in waves and became more intense as the night went on. The bleeding was full of large clots and I kept feeling like I had to move my bowels and I did so a few times. Several hours later, what felt like a very large blood clot came out (twice within a few minutes) and then the cramps stopped and that was it. I also had a couple of blood tests during the days when I was spotting and bleeding and my hormone levels were not increasing very much.
Yes. Spotting can indicate implantation of the fetus into the uterine wall (usually between 3-5 weeks pregnant). Spotting can also indicate the start of a miscarriage. BUT many many pregnancies have had spotting (and even heavier bleeding) and still been successful.
Not really. Typically your ovulation "toggles" between the two ovaries and so your period may be lighter or heavier depending. Spotting or cramping comes later.
Bigger magnets are used for heavier objects.
milds steel is heavier unless you have a different sized one
Spotting is light bleeding, if it is occuring before menstruation it is just the start of menstruation - lighter menstrual flow mixing with discharge, then as your period gets underway the bleeding becomes heavier and becomes normal menstrual flow.
It is too late to be implantation spotting, that usually happens 6 days or so after ovulation (about 3 weeks pregnant). I wouldn't worry about it if it's only "spotting". However if you begin having cramping or the spotting gets heavier I would worry then. I hope you called your doc, just to set your mind at ease.
I think it's just your period just being a bit different this time
I've just got done with my period a week ago, but i had intercourse the day before my last day of my period and then a week later i had intercourse again..the next day i startiung apotting and the day after i was spotting a little more heavier...whats the meaning to this?
only if the bleeding continues to getr heavier
It's when you have little but of blood on your panties or when you wipe, but not your actual period. It can be a sign of pregnancy, a cyst or a polyp, or a sign of pregnancy. It can also happen just from stress. If you have an IUD and are having spotting it can be a sign of infection so you should go to the doctor. If you are in the early stages of pregnancy some spotting is usually normal but if the bleeding becomes heavier or is accompanied by cramps you should go to the doctor.
This is just your body preparing for menstruation. Menstruation is triggered by the drop in progesterone, as the levels of progesterone drop the uterus starts to shed - starting with very light bleeding, that then gets heavier as the levels of progesterone continue to drop. Spotting is normal during menstruation.
You can use a lightweight scarf with a heavier curtain and it will not make a difference . The lightweight scarf will acctually hold better than a heavier one .
If it is just a standard non hormonal IUI, then this is perfectly normal. IUI's cause your periods to be heavier, (with exception of the minerva coil.) and can cause spotting a few days after fitting. The above answer seems to be referring to the "fitting" of an IUD...not the administration of an IUI. I had an IUI 2 days ago, and I have not had any spotting. However, the paper that my fertility clinic sent me home with stated that some spotting would be normal right after the procedure. I do not believe you should still be spotting 4 days afterwards. I am a RN, and I think this is something you should call your doctor's office about.
Start counting your period from the day you see the spotting if this happens every month. You could also do basal body temperature which will pinpoint ovulation, or use the Billings method.
