Doctor :   k sure we will answer your question before that was your periods normal before
User :   yes always have been like clockwork. Pretty heavy, last 6-8 days. Very normal
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   that spotting occurs during implantation but not a mandatory factor
Doctor :   anyways did you take up any pregnancy test
User :   okay this spotting lasted from the 13-16 of may is that normal??
User :   yeah i took a test on the 15th it was neg and today and it was neg also
Doctor :   my advice is to wait till this month period time and in case if you miss it then probably you will be pregnant
Doctor :   ya spotting can occur during infections also
Doctor :   did you have any fever or burning urination
User :   no
User :   no
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   can you explain on the discharge
Doctor :   are you there?
User :   well on the 13th it was very dark brown and kind of sticky, and then on the 14th it was light brown with a little bright pik only when i wiped. Then on the 15th and 16th it was bright red blood i had to wear a pad but it was no where near as heavy as a normal period. And on the 17th it was just gone
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   it can be due to implantation
Doctor :   are you taking any medication
User :   well i take pre natal vitamins anyway
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   apart from that
User :   because i had my cells froze because of HPV
User :   and i take zoloft and flonase
User :   i also had a past miscarriage very early but in my last pregnancy i didnt have implantation bleeding. I just want to do everything possible to prevent a miscarriage the best that i can
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   then are continuing the medication even now
User :   not the zoloft just the flonase, i have allergies
User :   is the flonase okay??
Doctor :   ya
Doctor :   k
User :   also on the 16th when i had bright red bleeding i also had small clots. is that normal??
Doctor :   in which month of gestation u had miscarriage
Doctor :   your age now
User :   i was like 8 weeks
User :   im 19
Doctor :   but u didn't tell me that u got clots
Doctor :   it is abnormal to have clots
User :   ok
User :   they were very small clots, when i got up off the toilet there were a couple small ones in the toilet
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   my suggestion is you better get 1 ultrasound abdomen
Doctor :   and at this very young age y do you wanna plan for a baby
Doctor :   your weight and height
User :   when?
User :   im 5'6 about 135
User :   im married
User :   my husband is 25
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   you are obese i guess
User :   what? haha
Doctor :   can you get a ultrasound abdomen and peovis done
User :   yeah i guess but why and when??
Doctor :   The first thing is to confirm the pregnancy and also to rule out if any abnormal implantation

Doctor :   Getting clots is suspectful of abnormal implantaion
Doctor :   do you have abdominal cramping or pain in morning hrs
Doctor :   are you there?
Doctor :   I have to close this window since there is no response from your side, we are available 24/7 please get back to us if you need further medical advice.
Doctor :   are you back?
User :   yes
User :   i do have a very little bit of cramping
Doctor :   it can be due to abnormal implantation or placental problems or miscarriage(abortion) s
Doctor :   so you better get 1 scan done on 25 th
User :   so with clots there is no way that it is a normal pregnancy
Doctor :   not only the clots after going through your symptoms i probably feel the above conditions are more likely
Doctor :   and don't panic
Doctor :   nothing to worry
Doctor :   so i can proceed with treatment plan after the scan
Doctor :   and for now you don't have any spotting right
User :   nothing
Doctor :   and it can be due to implantation also so don't panic and wait till the scan report comes off
User :   with my last miscarriage i had a very heavy amount of blood and a lot of abdominal cramping
Doctor :   ya that was almost 8 weeks so the bleeding will be heavy
User :   o ok
Doctor :   this time since it is of 1 to 2 weeks
Doctor :   the bleeding will be less
Doctor :   got my point
User :   yes
User :   should i take any precautions as of right now?
Doctor :   right now i don't think you need any medications
Doctor :   but i can provide you with some tips hoping for implantation and prevention of miscarriage
User :   yes please
Doctor :   maintain good hygiene
Doctor :   avoid taking very hot or cold shower baths
Doctor :   avoid injuries and be care ful
Doctor :   concentrate on reducing the weight
Doctor :   and practice some regular exercises

User :   im very tired and have had some problems with nausea and smells. i really havent been eating alot becausei just constantly feel sick
Doctor :   and if you are having any genital warts due to hpv kindly get treated for the same
User :   i did smoke, i quit but i have had some slip ups. about one or two a day. Is that very bad for the pregnancy?
