User:Hi DR
Doctor:How can I help you today
User:i am talking to u from last few days...
User:can u plz tell me how spotting in pregnancy is different from periods
Doctor:Its a coincidence
Doctor:Spotting is pregnancy is usually just 2 or 3 drops
Doctor:Periods have proper bleeding
User:bcz today i am feeling like my period started but colour is brown
User:and when this spotting usually happens
Doctor:Colour may be brown because of delayed periods resulting in stagnation of blood in uterus
Doctor:Dark brown is also blood
User:so spotting is 2-3 drops in whole day
User:bcz it is more than that n i am facing pain also
Doctor:Did you repeat your pregnancy test
User:no 2 days before i have tested at that time test was negative an d i am planning to test tomorow
Doctor:lets see the results
Doctor:You can use tampons to help bleed more
Doctor:It seems that blood is just stagnant inside
User:tampons is what
Doctor:It needs to be inserted deep in the vagina
Doctor:It is absorbent for blood flow
Doctor:You can get it at any pharmacy
Doctor:Alternatively you can just wait till tomorrow and see if more blood passes
User:but now is there any chance that i am not pregnant
Doctor:Yes there are high chances that you are not pregnant, since bleeding seems to have started
Doctor:Still pregnancy test will be able to confirm
User:yes and it is more than spotting, i feel so
User:ok i will do that test tomorow
User:or i should wait for two days for test
User:Thanks Doctor for your precious advice
Doctor:thanks for consulting me
