I missed my period then started spotting for 4 or 5 days

Patient: I missed my period then started spotting for 4 or 5 days what does that mean?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.If you have had a sexual intercourse in the last cycle and missed your periods with spo tting, it may mean an implantation bleeding followed by a pregnancy due to delayed ovulation. It is recommended that you see a doctor and get a pregnancy test, beta hCG done. Also, in case the test is negative, it may mean a delayed period with a lighter flow in the form of spotting. Your doctor would be able to guide you accordingly.Hope this helped.Regards
