    Question What exactly is spotting?

    Is spotting just as it sounds a spot here and there? Or is more like irregular bleeding? The reason I ask is because this past Sunday, I felt some discharge come out and I looked in my underwear and it was a couple of drops or light brown stuff and when I would wipe, it was light brown and a little bit of light pink. Well since Sunday, my discharge has continued being that light brown color and starting tonight, I have had some lower abdominal pains. So is this discharge considered spotting? I'm not due to start my period until next Tuesday and the last time I had unportected sex was LAST Tuesday and this past week I have forgotten to take my BCP twice though I doubled up the next day. Could this possibly be implantation bleeding? Is the brown discharge and lower abdominal pains a possible sign of pregnancy? I have made an appt. with the gyno for Thursday because I am concerned. If I am pregnant, will the doctor be able to tell so soon? Thanks!

    yes that is spotting but it sounds more like break through bleeding rather than implantation. test asap if you miss your period.
