  • Am i pregnant?

    I'm a week late and this past sunday I've had spotting in the morning time. It goes from a dark red color to light pink after a few hours then stops all together. I feel normal. Here and there have had some heartburn and mild headaches. Some cramping but not a whole lot. Using withdrawl method. Just a bit odd for spotting only in the mornings. I'm sexually active. Not on birth control. Why am i experiencing this type of spotting?

  • Since you are late, I would do a home pregnancy test, The spotting could be implantation bleeding. Best wishes.
    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.

    • I agree with jns. I am not on bc either, but am aware that during ovulation I may get pregnant even using the withdrawal method. If you are pregnant and already a week late for your period, a pregnancy test (especially first thing in the am) should show the pregnancy hormone.
