Resolved Question:

Hi my name is Wendy I'm 21yrs, old. I have a 7 months old baby girl. And went to the clinic to get birth control pills and I only took the pills for one month which was in june.

And since then I been spotting and the color has darken and it's been a problem because it's been two weeks already and doctors haven't gave me an appt until the 25th.

Just take a pregnancy test first of all right away and let me know the result.

Patient replied :

I have taken two pregnancy test before the bleeding and they came back negative and this has happened to me during my first pregnancy til the 3months the it shown I was pregnant

If that is the case, do not rely on a pregnancy test.
Just go for an ultrasound scan.
Take care. Let me know when you get the scan.
