    Pregnant? Or just having a weird cycle
    An_191369 posted:
    I recently had a period that started on 9/28 and ended on 10/4. Yesterdat I started light bleeding and today it has more of a flow to it. It doesn't smell the same as my normal menstrual "fluid" nor does it have the same deep red color or consistency. According to a tracking calendar app i use i ovulated last week on or about 10/13. I should not have another period until 10/28 ish. What could this be a sign of?

    I'm not a doctor or anything but are you having cramps with this? Has it stopped yet? This could be a miscarriage but it doesn't sound like it. You could be pregnant and just spotting. I would take a test. Also are you normally regular because if so I would definitely take a pregnancy test
    lindsayh628 replied to sky_ler86's response:
    Light cramps not my normal painful ones. I took a test and it said negative. The bleeding did stop 5 days after it started. I haven't started the period I should have gotten on the 28th
