Customer Question
I ALWAYS get my period...
I ALWAYS get my period on the first of every month, but this month I got it on September 12th. Since I was late, I took a PT on the 9th and it came out negative, but my period went off on the 16th. From the 18th to the 20th I experienced light spotting. Since the 20th I've been experiencing light cramping everyday. Could I be pregnant?

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

A pregnancy test after 9 days of missing the periods is very accurate and you can trust the negative result. Your spotting and delay in the periods are likely to be due to a mild increase in stress and anxiety. This is not concerning if this is occurring only this month. However, if this continues even next month then you should consult your doctor for further tests.

Take care.

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.
