Customer Question
Hello! I've been trying...

Hello! I've been trying to conceive for the past two months, and I think I may have gotten my wish! Although I have signs of early pregnancy, one of which is spotting. I spotted 3-4 days before my actual expected period, light pinkish when wiping, then rusty brown discharge. No cramping or sign of period. On my expected period day I got my period. But it is irregular. Before spotting, I notice a white creamy discharge for about a week before the spotting began. Is this a sign?

Doctor's Assistant: The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Gynecologist should know?

Just that I have signs of early pregnancy. My only downfall is my period. Although I've read that in early pregnancy it is possible to still have a light bleed.

Hi

You would typically not get your period.

It is easy to figure out at this point, take a pregnancy test.

An irregular period is not a sign of pregnancy.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
