Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.
Please provide some additional information.

What is your age?

Are you sexually active?

Any pregnancy test done?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
19, sexually active, yeah but it was negative. I would be too early along for a home pregnancy to detect the hormones
Expert:  Onlinedoc replied 3 months ago.

Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, ideally you should repeat the home pregnancy test after 1 week.

This can be implantation spotting as well.

Also this can be a early period.

Also your doctor may want to do a ultrasound as well.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

I didnt get a december period at all, so itd have to be a very late period which is extremely unusual. The bleeding keeps changing to being light pinish brown and barely theee, to a very watery more reddy brown colour that drips slowly whe i urinate, and back to nothing when i domt go to the bathroo,
Expert:  Onlinedoc replied 3 months ago.

Probably causes of delayed period include weight gain,weight loss,emotional stress,thyroid problems.

Also to rule out early pregnancy with implantation spotting/bleeding or early miscarriage.

Adv- Beta HCG levels/Repeat morning urine pregnancy test.


Ultrasound of whole abdomen.

Urine Routine examination.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Yeah i saw the possible reasons for delayed/missed period and none of which can apply. There has been absolutely nothing out of the usual. No diet change, exercise change, medication change, location change. Nothing is different except frequent urination, mild cramping (not as bad as usual) and a really unsettle bleeding pattern
Expert:  Onlinedoc replied 3 months ago.

I understand your concern.

Such bleeding can be associated hormonal imbalance,uterine pathology.

I do think you should undergo a ultrasound examination as well and hormone test.

Repeat home pregnancy test or consult your doctor for blood pregnancy test called as Beta HCG.
