My period is due on the 5th it never dame on the 13the i began spotting on the 16th i had a very faint test. On the 18th however i started bleeding bright red but not enough to use a pad or tampon. This lasted until today the 26th. My gyn told me i do have an ovarian cyst, and have no issue getting pregnant its staying pregnant, now i have never tested . during this bleeding i did cramp but it wasn't period cramps, i'm still nauseous, having weird cravings(i want to eat salsa out of the jar with a spoon and peanut butter) tender breasts not nipples.
My fiancee' and i are trying to conceive.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Mild spotting, mild abdominal cramps, lighter bleeding, delayed periods, nausea, food cravings, tender breasts etc could suggest possibility of pregnancy. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if periods do not start within 10 days, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, or if you develop any other new symptoms. If pregnancy gets confirmed, consider getting serial HCG levels estimated. Doubling up of the hormone levels in 48-72 hours will show that pregnancy is going on smoothly. If levels are not adequate, then external hormonal supplements would be considered to be started to help you in preventing miscarriage/threatened abortion. An early ultrasound scan done will help to know if pregnancy is intrauterine or ectopic along with confirmation of gestational age and viability. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
