Can you delay your period?

Yes, you can delay menstruation by taking medication like Norethisterone.

Norethisterone is essentially a synthetic progesterone so started three days before menstruation it prevents the progesterone drop that would normally trigger menstruation to begin. This drug is normally prescribed by a doctor and you take it three times per day from three days before your period, you continue to take it until you want your period to start. Menstruation will normally occur within around 48 hours of stopping the pills, it can be heavier but that isn't always the case.

Is there be a problem if on an 8 day menstrual cycle you periods begin with spotting and disappear by 6th day and on 8th day again there is spotting?

This would only be abnormal if the spotting on the eighth day is bright red.

Actually, I have always happened this to me - bleeding for 5 days, not bleeding one day, and then bleeding bright red and a lot for another 2 days. What it meant for me was that I have an inverted (heart shaped) uterus. This causes the disruption in bleeding. At least that's what I was told.

If your period is a month late and you have red spotting after sex and some brown discharge is this your period or could you be pregnant?

If your period is a month late you can do a home pregnancy test and find out! You can have bleeding and spotting during pregnancy for many reasons, so it is best to consult your physician.

I dont know about the after sex ,but, I would say there is a good chance. If you have had unprotected sex, do a HPT.

What does spotting 4 days before my period mean?

Spotting before your period may indicate several things: * Earlier than normal period without a physical reason. * Pregnancy bleeding. * Bleeding caused by starting/stopping birth control. * Bleeding caused by taking MAP/Plan B recently. * UTI. * Hormonal Imbalance. * Begining of irregular periods cycle. * Because you have irregular periods. * Hormonal imbalance. If you recently had unprotected sex and your period doesn't arrive in 3 weeks then perform a HPT. If you haven't had unprotected sex but you're concerned about the spotting then see your Doctor for a check up. If you have a history of irregular periods then this will cause spotting unexpectedly in some cases.

What does it mean if you think you're on your period but all you get is light brown spotting or light pink when you wipe?

this could mean several things, and there is no real way of knowing without talking to a doctor. I have read that brownish discharge when wiping is a possible early sign of pregnancy, and it can also be a sign of infection. A home pregnancy test would help determain if pregnancy is the cause.

-Answer-

Chances are it's not anything serious. It in most cases is just old blood. I know it's gross but, fact.

Sometimes if it is ALOT of brown , then yes it may be a sign of pregnancy, but if it's just a little bit, old blood , that's all.

Could you have had a miscarriage if you had your period a few weeks ago and have spotting that looks like cervical mucus?

or you could be pregnant. do a home pg test if + see a doctor, if - wait a 1 week after your period id due and test again. It depends by what you mean by "a few weeks ago". If it was in the past 10 - 12 days that you had your period, what you are probably seeing now is the beginning of ovulation for your cycle, so it is probably unlikely that you were pregnant.

How can you delay your period?

There are a lot of ways to delay it. I heard that eating lemons would help to delay it for a day or two. Sometimes when women are anxious or worried they get it later then they are supposed to, but it only works for certain people. Try it out if you want to.

You can also take medication. If you do, make sure to ask your doctor if it's alright for you to use it and to give you more tips and strategies on how to delay it.

If you want to get your period faster, then you shouldn't. It's not pleasant and best not to have it soon!

What is the difference between spotting and staining?

I've had some spotting/staining for almost 2 wks now (off and on - it started at 5 wks and I almost 7 wks now). Most of the time the staining is a nudish color and happens occassionally when I wipe. Twice I've had some darker color red, but it was really light and only happened when I wiped, then turned light brown, then went away (kind of, then I had a little staining). if you go to check the click below

What does it mean when you get brown stuff instead of red before the week of your period?

Often the 'brown stuff" is what is termed as pre-menstrual shedding. It isn't uncommon. As long as your period comes along on schedule after this, it should be fine.

How much do you bleed when you have a miscarriage?

In some women it's like having a regular period.

The range of how much blood is lost during a miscarriage varies from very little, to substantial. In the case of heavy bleeding, you most certainly should be getting medical help. Not all bleeding in early pregnancy is a miscarriage sign, but if more than a light period and always if you have had cramping, you should get checked by a doctor. Sometimes the baby can survive despite heavy bleeding.

Is brown spotting common during 6 months pregnancy?

I am just starting my 4th month of pregnancy, and I have had a small amount of brown spotting. I visited the hospital and was examined, and the doctor says I have an "involuted" cervix, which apparently means there is some tissue like the inside of the cervix on the OUTSIDE of the cervix. I was told that this tissue can be easily injured and will then bleed. The cervix was closed, however, indicating the bleeding was definitely from the inside, and not the outside. I also had an ultrasound, and the baby was fine. This was my experience, but I suggest you do visit your care provider or a hospital if you are having any spotting or pain. Everybody's different. Hope this helps!

What does it mean when you lightly spot pink the week after your period is over?

Nothing serious at all. Most of the time that just means that your body is finishing up with the menstruation cycle. Especially if your younger, and havent had your period for very long, you could be irregular a lot, but it evens out later. Nothing to be worried about.

Why would you be spotting if you skipped the 7 non-active pills?

It happens very frequently when women try to skip the non-active pills to avoid getting her period. What most don't know and now you do is that many times it backfires and you end up spotting for longer than the period would have lasted. Skipping sugar pills can mess up your cycle.
