  • Yes, but it could be a number of other things as well. Stress, hormones, just a weird cycle (we all have them from time to time).

    If you took the test more than a week ago go ahead and test again. If it's negative wait another week and if THAT one is negative then it's pretty safe to say you're not pregnant.

  • If you miss your next period I would test but if that is negative go get a blood test done. Like Ati said you could have had that spotting for a number of things. Just try to relax. I once missed my period one month and even went to have blood test done but I was not pregnant. The next month when I had an appointment to see a gynecologist I started my period it was normal length but the next month was pregnant so you never know.
