  • Are your cramps more intense and seem to be more constant than the usual one day? If it's a constant pain than it's quite possible you're miscarrying, but I would wait it out until the week is done. If it continues after a week than I would go see a physician.

  • I think you had better go get checked out, I think if you were to take a PG test, you might have enough hormones left to still read positive, hopefully this is just a bad period, were you late, or did you recently stop the pill or depo? I know when I went off of BC, my periods got alot worse,, good luck!

  • i ve been off pill since 2 yrs.. we just used condoms before ttcing.. so i have no reason to blame this heavy af on anything.. i ll go to my doc over the weekend..

    this bleeding was around my usual period only.
