I was 3 days late, then experienced a brown discharge

Patient: I was 3 days late, then experienced a brown discharge and some blood only when I wiped. As of yesterday (7th day after I was supposed to start my time of the month) I started a weird red watery flow the clear liquid fills my pad more then anything. Could I be pregnant?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks of the query.If your menses have not resumed in a manner as expected and you have been experiencing scanty mucous mixed discharge and already late by a week, it is pertinent that you should get a urine pregnancy test done to rule out pregnancy first.If negative then you should undergo an ultrasound pelvis and a per speculum exam with your Physician to rule out any local or uterine causes of bleeding.Hope this helps.Regards
