Patient discussion about hypomenorrhea
Q. Could I be pregnant and my body just doesn't know it yet? It is a very light period what do you think? This is Coreyeve ; I got married 5 months ago. Yesterday, I took a pregnancy test and it came positive. Then I had my period later that evening. Could I be pregnant and my body just doesn't know it yet? It is a very light period what do you think?
- the pregnancy test you did was wrong (was not accurate)
- or you were actually pregnant, but then you had a very early miscarriage
So, I will suggest next time, you can check whether you're pregnant or not after you miss your period, then you can check it by using home pregnancy test or even pregnancy pack test.
If you're a working woman, it is advisable to balance your activities, since the first weeks of pregnancy is quite important (that is the time when the embryo is implanted into the mother's uterus)
Good luck, and stay healthy always..
