Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA.

Thank you for the question. I will be answering your query shortly.

I understand your concern.

Do you have 

  • Nausea? 

  • Fatigue? 

  • Breast tenderness? 

  • Increased frequency of urination? 

Did you take any more tests after 20th?

We always use protection we use condoms

Alright. You should ideally take another test today. There could be some other reasons for this bleeding which include conditions like polyps, cervical ectropion, cervicitis due to infections and ovulatory dysfunction. If the bleeding doesn't stop in 3 more days then please schedule a non urgent appointment with GYN for an examination. They may also decide to take a swab as well for testing of infections.

The bleeding is only vary light and for a day at a time

It's a good thing that it's light but I would expect it to settle down within few more days. If it doesn't then it would be prudent to have a physical checkup once at least.

Thank you do you think there is a big need to worry or any certain things it could be

Such minor bleeds are mostly a result of hornonal fluctuations and they settle without any therapy.

You're most welcome.

if I stop bleeding then should I just wait for my period to come

That's correct. No worries if the bleeding stops in few more days.
