Brief Answer:
You can wait for your next natural period.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

If you have always had regular menstrual cycles, the spotting you observed in February was not normal. It could have been a breakthrough bleed or an implantation bleed. A home pregnancy test done 3-7 days later may have been enough to confirm/exclude pregnancy.

However, a transient hormone imbalance can be self corrective and result in a normal period in the next cycle.

In the current scenario, you can get an estimation of the serum beta-hCG titers or wait for your next natural period. I would suggest the blood test for an earlier clarification in view of your symptoms.

Hope your query has been clarified. Please feel free to contact for further information. I will be happy to help.

regards,
Shanti.V.

My boyfriend is 25 years old and I have been with him for about 7 months. And whenever we have sex, very frequently it seems like he will go limp during the middle of intercourse. And there are times where it seems like we go a month without sexual intercourse. Another thing that seems to grasp my attention is that there will be random times that he gets hard, however normal conventional ways of stimulating him doesn't work. Could this be a sign of some sort of hormonal imbalance or some sort of problem with his heart?

Hi, I am 34 years old and have 3 kids. Since my youngest, my 3 year old was born I have been losing hair. But recently it is too much and my hair is so thin now and brittle. I checked my thyroid and its 4.17. Is that too high or could it be a hormonal imbalance?

I missed the first 4 pills of my new pack waiting for them in the mail. Finally starting the pack on thursday.i have now been on the BC for 2 weeks. Since then I have had tender nipples and breast, little twinges and crampy feelings in lower abdomin. I have egg white film like discharge that has no odor. Other than early pregnancy, could I have a hormonal imbalance from missing those 4 pills or could it be bacterial vaginosis or what do u think most likely. I have taken several pregnancy tests but all have been negative I think it is too early. Help!!!
