This is Dr. David

you started your bleeding 3 days ago.

when was the last time you had your period?

if your last period was 28-30 days before this period, then most likely this is just a normal period

and you were not pregnant from unprotected sex 10 days ago

and you did not have a miscarriage, just a regular period.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I am not exactly sure when my last period was but I do think it was less than 28 days
Expert:  Dr David replied 5 months ago.

I see.

you could be having more irregular periods.

are you trying to get pregnant?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No I am not trying
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It was peculiar because I had cramps the day before and yesterday as well as multiple clots which occurred within an hour and a half as well as heavy bleeding
Expert:  Dr David replied 5 months ago.

that can all happen during a regular period.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Is there a way to know for sure?
Expert:  Dr David replied 5 months ago.

you can do blood tests now to check for bHCG levels in your body, but I bet it would not show that you were pregnant.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Ok thanks. If I don't do that could that mean anything negative for childbearing ?
Expert:  Dr David replied 5 months ago.

no, nothing negative for childbearing.
