Brief Answer:
Negative pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Welcome to healthcare magic.

You are unlikely to be pregnant. Serum beta hCG is most conclusive test of pregnancy. If it is negative, then you are not pregnant for sure.

The thin line of blood what you saw was your period.

In women it is common to have periods delayed periods once in a while.

Delayed periods might be due to change in place, increased stress, examination, change in weight etc...

These situationsof delayed periods are also associated with reduced flow of blood.

Therefore dont worry about it. You are not pregnant and everything is fine.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?
