I am 11 days late today and I woke up with pinkish blood when I wiped and it was kinda brownish creamy discharge in my undies when I woke up. Sorry for the TMI. But it is just about evening and it is still light pink and I am usually between a medium to heavy bleeder. I used a tampon and it wasn't enough to use one so it hurt so I had to switch to a pad after a little bit. I have been having light cramps off and on for the past 5 days. I took a Hcg test at 6 days late and 11 days late and both were negative. I have never been more than a day or two late ever. So I am confused on if this is an extremely late period or something along with early pregnancy because I read that some women's hormone levels are to low to detect in early pregnancy. My fiance and I use no protection. Either way we would be fine with how it turns out. But I would really appreciate any comments. Please help

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The delayed periods, lighter bleeding, pink discharge/spotting, abdominal cramps that you describe could suggest pregnancy possibility if you had been sexually active without protection around ovulation time. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods have not started within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you have got abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). The urine pregnancy tests done early in pregnancy can show you false negative results as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.

I'm in the same boat, I am ten days late, and I have been cramping the last few days. Today I noticed very light pinkish spotting, but only when I wipe (sorry for the TMI) I was wondering if I could be pregnant, or just getting ready to start my period.
