This answer was rated:

I started my regular period on July 14. I started a weird spotting on Aug 1. I don't think my boyfriend and I have had sex since I started my period. Have been under a lot of stress and lost 8 lbs. I'm already relatively thin to begin with. Spotting was red at first but also brown to blackish with some blobs. Pregnant?

Customer: Hi
Dr. Owen :

Well it could be possible - and since you are more than about 14 days since you last had sex a pregnancy test would be quite accurate at this point

Dr. Owen :

But if you are NOT pregnant and the pregnancy test says so, then the spotting, etc is MORE than likely due to Stress/ anxiety, weight changes.

Customer: Ok I'll get a urine test
Dr. Owen :

Also even could be due to a thyroid condition (easy to check with a TSH thyroid blood test) or even a possible infection

Dr. Owen :

Yes, a good urine test such as one from EPT, FIrst Response or Clear Blue would be accurate
