hello XXXX! short term bleding may be a pregnancy and the placenta when penetrates deeper sometimes little spottin goccurs. and if you started to bleed early again from expected date, you should have an obstetric exam. An ultrasound will rule out abortion partial or incomplete or threatened and management accordingly then cheers Khan

Brief Answer: You are not pregnant, you had small menses Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome to Healthcare Magic. The bleeding is probably a normal cyclical bleeding albeit a smaller one. Three times negative urine pregnancy test is reasonably good evidence to rule out pregnancy. If you still have symptoms of pregnancy or doubt then you can take serum beta hCG test which is more specific for ruling out pregnancy. But you would hardly need that. I hope the advise will be helpful for you.
