    What causes vaginal spotting after taking Progesterone pills?

Posted on Thu, 13 Jul 2017 in Women's Health
Question: I got married in May 13th, and was on birth control. I had some weird bleeding (lighter than normal) on May 17th (the doctor gave me progesterone to help me start my period later).Now, I was supposed to start my Period 4 days ago, and haven't... (My husband also hasn't ejaculated inside me). Instead of a period i have had this light pink color spotting. And have had some weird yellowish mucus for the past 3 days. I also have had sore breasts, and been SUPER nauseous! Plus only certain things sound good to eat, and I have been experiencing period like cramps. Is there a chance i am pregnant?

Brief Answer:
No chance of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns.

I don't see any chance of pregnancy in this scenario.

This spotting is probably related to starting of periods. Periods start like this sometimes after progesterone pills.

You can consider this as periods.

Let me know if you need any more help.
