Had a miscarriage earlier, irregular periods, blood color changed. Is it due to pregnancy or hormonal imbalance?

My period normally comes on the 5 th of every month. This month I was 2 days late I was bleeding for a day then it stopped 2 days later I started to lose clear blood it looked pink more than red. I had a miscarried 7 months ago and I was 4 month's in to my pregnancy when this happened. Could I be pregnant or could my hormones still be unbalanced?

Hi and thanks for the query,
the possibility of these condition to be linked to the lost pregnancy is really very low. Its important to note that amongst women of reproductive age, due to some stress factors, it is not uncommon for periods to either delay or come earlier for one or a few days in some of their cycles. In anovulatory cycles, some women might completely fail to bleed. It becomes a serious issue if this becomes very repetitive or very irregular.
In your case, I suggest you do a pregnancy just to be sure, it is a possibility and stay calm. I honestly do not think it s something serious. In case of persistence of symptoms or a positive pregnancy test, you should consult your gynecologist.
Thanks and best regards,

welcome to health care magic and
thanks for the query

To be practical, the first thing to ruled out for any bleeding abnormality
in a sexually active woman is a pregnancy. Even abnormal bleeding
occurring during the expected date of the next menses has to be
suspected because it could be an implantation bleeding. First thing to
do thus, will be to do a home pregnancy test with early morning urine.

If it turns out positive, then its a pregnancy and you will have to do an
ultrasound to determine the location of the pregnancy.

If on the other hand it turns out negative, then it could be hormonal or
infectious and you will need to see your doctor.

Best regards and hope this helps you.
