am I having a miscarriage?

This answer was rated:

I noticed that I'm spotting and my period isn't due until the 22nd. Is this bad? Also, I had sex with one guy while I was ovulating (August 7), then had sex with a another guy two nights ago. Who would be the father of my child?


First day of my last period: July 25, 2013


Length of cycle: 5 days

Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.

Well if you Are pregnant, then you would be getting pregnant about 14 days PRIOR to your when your period is due...therefore IF you are pregnant, the father of the baby would be from the guy you had sex with on August 7th.
You can't get pregnant just 4 days prior to when your period is due.

I hope this helps

What about the spotting?

Spotting around this time is how you can indicate that implantation is occurring - so this is probably what you are having - but the only way to really know is with a positive pregnancy test....
So I would do a Pregnancy test - but you would need to use a very good pregnancy test at such an early stage of pregnancy if you are pregnant.

I hope this helps

I had sex with second guy on the August 14th, would the first guy still be the father?

It would be impossible to be pregnant from the 14th....
You got pregnant on the 7th as I have explained in my first answer- you ONLY can get pregnant around the time of ovulation.
I wish you well
