You could be pregnant but you could also just be stressed out. Stress can make your period late or even keep you from having one. You could have been stressed and not ovulated. You could have been stressed and not had one altogether. I suggest you take a pregnancy test.

In my opinion, pregnancy symptoms are very similar to symptoms you get when you have your period (tender breasts/nipples, cramps, bloating, fatigue, mood changes etc.). The only way to find out is to take a test.

One week after your period is abnormal to have ovulated. What is your cycle like? Are you standard 28 days? Ovulation is about 10 days after your period (give or take). I don't think that you are pregnant. To be pregnant you also need to be sexually active and not use protection. Spotting could be related to other factors in your life, particularly stress but could also be medication related, particularly new Birth Control pill types /formulations. Track your progress and if you miss your period (and are normally regular with it) then grab a test kit and check your HCG levels. Until then (about a months time) you cannot definitively know unless you get a blood test.

What does it mean if you are spotting?

Spotting is what happens when just a little of the menstrual blood comes out in the middle of your cycle(when you're not expecting a period at all) or it is a sign that your normal flow is about to begin. Spotting is usually light in color, and doesn't require a hefty sized napkin to clean up. But I am on birth control and I am actually expecting to be on my period and it is very light in color and only lasted for one day. is there something wrong? Am i pregnant? I shouldn't be, or is it not healthy for me to take this birth control anymore?

How do you tell if you're pregnant if you haven't missed your period?

most people miss a period before they can even suspect they may be pregnant. but there are some that can have periods almost throughout the entire thing. this should be lighter and shorter than a normal period. if you think you may be pregnant go to the dr immediately for a test and voice your concerns. the sooner you begin receiving pre-natal care the better things will be for you and your baby.

Can you have your period wile you are pregnant?

No. If you are pregnant and begin bleeding you need to call your health care provider. Some women do have bleeding throughout their pregnancy and have perfectly normal babies but this bleeding is not a menstrual cycle which is caused by certain hormonal changes and the breakdown of the uterine lining.

You only had a 1 day period with light bleeding which is out of the ordinary but im cramping are you pregnant?

If you've only experienced light spotting that maybe pinkish/brownish with maybe a tinges of blood then you are probably pregnant. This is known as implantation bleeding and mild cramps may be experienced with this. There should be no "flow". ONLY spotting; however, there are many cases where women have seemingly normal "menstruation-like" bleeding and are still diagnosed to be pregnant. Implantation bleeding usually lasts from as least as a few hours to up to 3 days. This typically occurs around the day your actual menstruation is supposed to begin or even possibly a day or two before. I hope this helps, God bless!

Would you still start your period even if you were pregnant and on birth control?

Can you tell if you are pregnant while you are on your period?

AnswerIf you are on your period, then you are not pregnant.-Thats not true at all. Some women can have their period throughout their entire pregnancy. A friend of mine's mother had her period up till she was 6 months pregnant with her daughter before she even found out she was pregnant to begin with! This can be called vaginal bleeding. If you have your period, but you feel you are showing symptoms of pregnancy, I would take a test or see your doctor for a blood test. good luck!

Do women ovulate after conception?

Your period is the beginning of a new menstrual cycle. Women ovulate once a month usually about 14 days (give or take a few) after the first day of their last period. If you did conceive (become pregnant) with that ovulation, you will typically not ovulate anymore until you have had your baby and begin having a normal period again.

Is bright pink persistent spotting at 5 weeks 3 days implantation bleeding or signs of a miscarriage?

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.

If you are spotting but not due to have a period for another nine days could you be pregnant?

If you had unprotected sexual intercourse, you run a high risk of becoming pregnant, even if you don't want to be. A woman can become pregnant at any time throughout her cycle, including during her menstrual period, even though you are more likely to conceive during ovulation. Ovulation occurs about 14 days after the first day of your last menstrual period. This can actually range 10 to 17 days since many women are not always completely regular. Spotting can mean any number of things. Maybe the intercourse you had the night before was too rough, thus friction causing you to be raw inside and causing you to have some extremely light bleeding. Maybe you are not always regular and the spotting is just part of your cycle. Spotting in the very early stage of pregnancy is most likely an indication of implantation bleeding. Spotting even occurs when you first begin taking birth control pills or the patch. If you have a period after the last time you had sexual intercourse, you are not pregnant. However, many women even confuse their period with vaginal bleeding. Vaginal bleeding is the actual term for any bleeding during pregnancy because it is caused by something other than your menstrual period. A menstrual period during pregnancy cannot occur. With this in mind and you are still concerned you may be pregnant, you should obtain a home pregnancy test and use it if you are late for or miss your next menstrual period. Should the home pregnancy test read positive, seek an appointment with your OB/GYN right away so they can get you worked into the doctor's schedule in a timely manner.
