should i still see my doctor?

I posted this question but got 2 answers, just want to see if I can get more opinions. My period was due the end of december. I think it is just starting now. I have some cramps and brown spotting. Hoping it is just my period because i made an appointment with my gyne to make sure I wasn't pregnant.(took 3 HPT's and they all came back neg.) The appointment isn't for another 2 weeks, that is the soonest they could see me. I have never had my period just up and disappear like that. Should I still go see the doctor? Could there be something else going on? Anyone ever have this happen and what was the result?

  • I have this problems alot...right now I havent had my period since November...but I am not pregnant.....missed periods can be alot of stress, change of diet, tiredness, an infection, or sometimes people miss it when they get a little sick....but you should still go to the Dr...especially witht he brown spotting....also they should do a blood test I know a couple of people who had negative tests and they were -- my mom didnt know she was pregnant until after she was 5 months...because her home tests were all negative..

  • Go see your doctor, this has never personally happened to me, but it's so much better to be safe than sorry, good luck!

  • yes, go see your doc. even if you get your period they may want to do some blood tests and check to make sure there isn't anyting serious going on.

  • it could be your period, or it could be spotting in the first trimester (which is common), or it could be your body changing (which is does a lot), or it could be due to stress, new medication, etc etc etc. The only way to know is to talk with you doctor.
