Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good evening, I am Dr Elliot and hope that I can help
So if for example you were to have fallen pregnant at the end of April, an early pregnancy would likely not show up on a urinary pregnancy test. So I would continue doing a weekly blood test until your next normal period
Regarding the current bleeding, you are a week late? This can be very normal and can happen for a number of reasons. Are you normally regular with your periods?
Okay, so the dark brown blood suggests old blood. This could be due to a mild bleed when your period was due and now shedding and causing a delayed physical period. If your periods are normally regular then this is likely to continue as normal from next month. If however it does not you need to continue weekly pregnancy test and discuss with your GP regarding an ultrasound pelvic scan. However, this is not suggestive of anything sinister
That is my pleasure, hope that was of help to you
Please could I ask you kindly rate my response, this is the only way that I can be credited for providing an answer, thank you
