Hey having periods when you are pregnant is not normal. I have heard it is a sign of abortion. Please get yourself checked. Do not delay.

Confirm it is pregnancy related or delayed menses[Occsionally infalse positive test].
Bleeding some times occurat menturation time for first few months in some pregnancy.
Take rest. If t is painful,fever then better consult Gynecologist to rule out miscarriage.

Technically if you are pregnant you cannot get your period but there are several reasons for spotting during pregnancy. Sometimes, early in pregnancy, a little bit of blood may be present during implantation but the amount is very small and will go away. It appears that some women spot during their pregnancy around the time that they would get their period. Sometimes spotting can be an indicator of a miscarriage. If you start spotting, try to stay calm and contact your doctor for a check up. If the bleeding is heavy and you are experience abdominal pain contact doctor immediately and/or go to emergency room.

this is missed abortion, better go and get the scan immediately. it can also be ectopic pregnancy.

I am 19 years old and have been having unprotected sex with my two year boyfriend. We have been using the pulling out method I am not on birthcontrol. My period was suppose to arrive on the 7th & today is the 11th & I have still not had my period. I felt all my pms symptoms such as irritability and what not. My nipples have been sore & I have a sour stomach with heartburn. I have currently moved in with my boyfriend so I have been feeling stress from my family members & my diet is completely changed. I took a home pregnancy test & it came out negative. Any ideas of what could be wrong??

Hello Doctor, I m a 28 yr old man. Last week, i had some problem passing the gas... & after 1-2 days, I had a mild stomach pain on left side.... I visited one hospital & got the medicine for the same(PANTADOC 1/2hr before the meal, else CYCLOPAM after meal-2 times a day)..... Yesterday, I got some burning sensations at the back on the top of my left hip which continued for almost 1 hr..... Suspecting something in the stomach, I d done the Ultrasound scan for full abdomen which gave NORMAL RESULTS..... I don t drink, no smoking, normal food (mostly Veg), Staying in a PG (sometimes get spicy food but I try to avoid it or eat less) Still I feel some burning sensations. Could there be some kind of infection in stomach ? Are there any tests apart from Ultrasound which can reveal any infection ? PLease help me as I m worried about this !!!

I'm a 46 yr. old premenopausal woman, enjoying life as a piano teacher, with relatively little stress, compared with the days of nursing my parents years ago (my mum died of High grade gastric Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, aged 57). I've lost quite a lot of weight, sometimes get night sweats, and I can see a lymph node about the size of a pecan nut in front of my left clavicle. My 22 yr old son who is studying 5th year medicine, and reckons he can feel a couple of large ones. One is nearer my neck, in my left shoulder, though I can't see them. I have been getting pain in that shoulder and in the arm with hand weakness. Last evening the veins in my wrist and hand swelled up for a while and I felt rather weak, with palpitations. And kept waking in the night with odd sudden thumps of the heart. I wondered whether I had a constriction of blood vessels in the arm or a separate circulatory issue. Do you think I could have Hodgkin's Lymphoma, given that several blood test results are acceptable, a GI endoscopy 2 weeks ago was all clear, except I still had porridge oats in my stomach 7 hours after breakfast, so they asked if I was diabetic and a fasting blood test proved negative. My chest Xray 3 weeks ago was clear, though an abdominal ultrasound scan last week showed a small non-shadowing 3.7mms hyperechoic focus near the posterior gallbladder wall. I sometimes have trouble emptying my bladder, so for the internal womb ultrasound,I had supposedly emptied it but the ultrasound showed that it still contained 168ccs. I am a pianist, and have been afraid to play in public recently, as I tend to lose a bit of control of my bladder, (and sometimes at night) though that is more of a minor issue as far as I'm concerned, at the moment. I have an appointment booked for a neck ultrasound on 13th June, but would like someone's opinion now, if possible on the seriousness or otherwise of my condition. Thanks.
