Customer Question

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?
JA: The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Gynecologist should know?
Customer: 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.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer where you can place your fully refundable $5 deposit (plus $13 after the Gynecologist responds). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Gynecologist about your situation and connect you two.

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.
