Could I be pregnant
pkatrina807 posted:
I had one episode of spotting about mid way through my cycle but no more, slight cramping. Could I be pregnant or should I be concerned about something else? Everything is normal aside from that one spotting and the slight cramping.

Spotting is normal. If your period is late, take a test. If it's negative, you may have not ovulated and usually no ovulation means no period.

If you miss two periods and are getting negative tests, see your doctor.

Some women can actually get some light spotting when they ovulate.

If it were implantation bleeding (a pregnancy symptom) it would be much closer to your expected period date.

Wait to see if you miss your period. If you do, take a home pregnancy test.

If you are concerned, you should always consult your doctor - they typically don't mind answering questions and can help you know what to do next.
