User :   I thinkk I may have had a chemical pregnancy but not sure. I am ausually regular 28 day cycle. Here are my symptoms Sex day before ovulation. According to BBT (track daily) temp dipped on day of ovulation (ovulated on right day) temp rose next day. 12dpo I had very light brown blood for an hour or 2 while wiping, never came down. then stopped completely, no premenstral cramping after that , unusual for me. Nothing on period due date, I am never late nore than 1 day (rare) , if period is off I am usually early a day or 2. Temp was raised until day 16 day 17 temp lowered (not completely) bleeding started. heavier flow than normal for me on day 1, usually a light day. looked pinkish to me. had bad cramps but usually for me. Today is day 2 (I was going to take a HPT today) usually my heavy day but light and brown blood. temp 1 point higher. TTC for 4 months.
Doctor :   Hi,
User :   hello
Doctor :   Let me read your query for few minutes to be able to have a good discussion here.
User :   ok
Doctor :   Ok, Can you brief your question ?
User :   I want to know if it is possible if it is possible I had a chemical preganncy because otherwise I do not understand what is goingi on
Doctor :   Are you on any long term medications ?
User :   no, just vitamins and supplements
Doctor :   ok, May i know the first day of last menstrual period ? the date ?
Doctor :   And the day when you had spotting ?
User :   November 27
User :   December 23
User :   Spotting was the 23
Doctor :   well the cycle is of around a 26 days which is normal
Doctor :   the amount of bleeding varies or depends on the hormonal balance
Doctor :   hence it is normal sometimes to have less amount of bleedin to some times a spotting
Doctor :   I would consider the ruling out of a chemical pregnancy would be easy if you get a HPT
Doctor :   if HPT is negative that itself answers the question
Doctor :   if its positive then you may need a USG scan to confirm the chemical pregnancy
User :   even while bleeding now i can still do it?
Doctor :   yes, you can its a urine test
Doctor :   collect a early morning sample
Doctor :   and the test can be positive for even 1 week if a miscarriage
Doctor :   And if positive Implantation bleeding should also be considered
User :   Could something casue my period tostop and start again? It has never happended before
Doctor :   Yes, Hormonal and nutritional impairment can cause such hassles
User :   Okay. thank you for your help.
Doctor :   You are welcome
