I might be 2months pregnant I'm having brown spotting off and on please tell me what's going on?

Hi. If you are pregnant, you need to see your Doctor or go to hospital to make certain you are not pregnant. Brown spotting can occur during early pregnancy and is usually harmless, but it is always best to be certain. If you are not pregnant, the brown spotting may be a urinary tract infection or a yeast infection, from recently stopping/starting birth control pills, recently taking morning after pill or due to your period about to arrive.

How can you tell you're pregnant when on the pill?

Take a pregnancy test, obviously.

How can you tell if your pregnant just after get off the pill?

You can take a pregnancy test, which will tell you if you got pregnant ten days ago or more.

What does it mean when you start your period early on the pill?

That you are not pregnant. If you are on a Mini Pill you should tell your doctor as you may be ovulating.

You have been on the pill for over 10 years your husband an you are tying to get pregnant What are the chances you get pregnant right away?

It is impossible to tell. Sme women get pregnant straight away. I did, I came off the pill in Augustafter 11 years, used a condom for 4 months to check my cycle then got pregnant the very first month. Some women struggle to get pregnant, but whether because of the pill or not it is difficult to say, some women who have never used contraception cannot get pregnant either.

Is it normal to be a Week pregnant with cramping and spotting?

Could you possibly be pregnant if you have been spotting for two weeks?

If you have had sexual intercourse you possibly could be pregnant. You tell by taking a pregnancy test. You don't use whether or not your spotting for two weeks as a proxy for a pregnancy test. If you are worried that you might be pregnant, you shuold take a test as soon as possible.

If your on some form of birth control dont you automatically get periods how can you tell when your pregnant if you get automatic bleeding?

I know about the pill. I have know women (not many) that have gotten pregnant while on the pill, but as soon as they got pregnant they no longer had any periods. I hope that this helps:)

Can you bleed on your period and its light and lasts a few days?

Yes, that is perfectly normal to have a light period and only a few days long. If you have been on the pill over time you will find that your periods get lighter and shorter. If you are pregnant sometimes light spotting does happen, but you need to tell your doctor.

If have been spotting brown and bleeding then after almost a week of spotting you start cramping are you pregnant or did you have a miscarriage?

im 16 and i was supposed to start my period a couple weeks ago and i never did now i am spotting brown blood i was wondering if anyone could tell me what that means

Can you still become pregnant while taking birth contol?

Yes you can. Of course it depends on the level of hormones and the regularity of taking the pill, but you most certainly can get pregnant while on the pill. I was told I couldn't get pregnant due to hormone fluctuation, so I went on the pill to help regulate periods. After one year of being on the pill,WHAMO! I'm a mother. Three years later, I was again told I couldn't get pregnant because my body wasn't producing hormone levels again. I decided to stay on the pill and add condoms to my arsenal. 6 months after my doctor said it wasn't possible. I became a mother of two! First time was pill alone, and the second was pill and condoms. I've finally decided that my OB/GYN can never tell me "You can't get pregnant" because my body seems to take it as a dare. Hope this helps!
