Doctor :   Hello, If your periods are due and you have seen blood at cervix on digital examination then it is likely that your me nses is going to start in a day or so. If your concern is pregnancy then you may undertake a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy , ideally on the 7th day post missed period for better sensitivity. I hope i have answered your query, wishing you good health, regards
