Could I be having a child?

Patient: I need some help. So I ended my period 15 days ago and yesterday I started lightly bleeding dark red/ brownish blood. Could I be pregnant?

 

 

Symptoms: Bleeding red/ brown blood, boobs getting bigger

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern. Intermenstrual spotting can be seen during ovulation or in othe r days due to hormonal imbalance.During early pregnancy also spotting can be seen due to implantation, growing gestational sac etc.Other possible causes are local causes like cervical erosion, polyp etc.If you do not get periods even one week after expected date, please go for urine pregnancy test.If pregnancy test gives negative result and Intermenstrual spotting repeats, better to consult your doctor and get evaluated.Take care.
