Question: spotting/light brown discharge
|mroy - Mon Dec 03, 2007 12:03 am||
Hi I'm a 28 year old married women who definitly wants to have children. A year ago I was diagnosed with PCOS (poly-cystic ovarian syndrome). I was put on Clomid, which didn't work. I was pregant once (didn't know I was) early last year and miscarriaged. My husband and i have been trying but put no pressure on ourselves. My family dr put me on bc pills for a month to regulate my cycle, and it's been regular for 6 months straight. This month I was waiting but nothing came only light blood a day or two and now light brown discharge. When we have intercourse I feel very wet, like I've come on my cycle but its either clear or light brown discharge. I'm only like 4 days late, could I be pregnant and when should I take a HPT?

It is possible you could be pregnant. Most home pregnancy tests are quite accurate now when used as directed. A week after your expected period would be a good time to try that.
