my husband and i are trying to conceive...im 2days away from period, but i am spotting and just a moment ago i went to the restroom and wiped and little tiny bloches of blood it looks like tiny clots i guess...i never had that before my period starts its usually brownish then regular flow. Could that be a sign that i might be pregnant or is it my period?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
It could be either of them (a sign of pregnancy or sign of your periods starting). Look out for other symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Wait for your periods to start, if it is not similar to your usual periods or is delayed, or lighter, then go ahead with examination and blood tests done by a gynecologist to confirm/rule out pregnancy. A serial blood HCG level test will show if pregnancy is present and is going on fine, else supplementing of external HCG will be needed to prevent miscarriage from occurring if HCG levels are found to be low.
If the bleeding becomes heavy and with clots, then consider getting an ultrasound scan done, as it could suggest possibility of early miscarriage. Do not delay you visit to gynecologist.
