I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

I have abdominal cramps with spotting. Is it implantation bleeding or midcycle spotting ?

My cycles vary from 25-28 days and are always regular. On the second day of my period, April 28, I had unprotected intercourse. My period ended a day and i half later (3 1/2 day period). On May 7 I again had unprotected intercourse. About an hour later had cramping in my low abdomen and spotting. On May 10, I again woke up and had spotting, except this time it was a strong dull, constant pain in my right ovary area. It almost felt like my period was starting. The spotting discontinued, but the pain in my right ovary area lasted almost all day. I m 17 years old. Could this be implantation bleeding? Or is it normal. The pain in my ovary area was odd, and hurt more when i stood up from sitting.

Hi welcome to healthcare magic

IF the pain gradually increases, then you needed to be clinically evaluated... there are various reasons for lower abdomen pain, but ectopic pregnancy is to be ruled out.. USG scanning must be done to find the cause...

Hello, I have just had some dark brown spotting but am not due to have my period for another 9 days. I had intercourse on Sunday and have been having some mild cramping since yesterday. I am extremely worried that this was implantation bleeding and that I am now pregnant. I would really appreciate any advice on what to do to minimise the chances of being pregnant and make the implantation unsuccessful. Thank you, Sarah

My daughter is 39 and 7weeks pregnant She recently passed some dark to pink blood. About a teaspoon full. She also has some very mild cramps. She went to her dr. and he did a scoping of her uterus. The baby was intact with heart beat. She is very worried. This was a pregnancy which was done by implanting her egg which was fertilized by her husband. It has been a long process and she desperately wants this baby. How common is it to have mild cramping and bleeding at this stage?

I am trying to concieve and have been detected with mild pcos since august 2013. I have taken ciphene tablets from day 2 to day 6 of this cycle .Have been monitored by follicular scan and have ovulated on cd 14. Had proganova tablet and am on duphaston now from past 6 days.. Now 4 or 5 dpo i have started spotting with a couple of clots. The doctor told me to start with pause tablet 500 mg for 3d ays . Today is the third day, I still experience cramps and spotting. Red thread like structures are also seen in blood ( Sorry for the language , wanted to give a clear picture) . It is light but not stopping. If i start exerting myself by walking then spotting starts again . Is this a sign of implantation bleeding or can it be an early period ?
