The only way to know is to check a pregnancy test.

Sounds like you could very well be pregnant. If you are pregnant, the bleeding would indicate an implantation bleed which is normal. Not every woman has spotting but 2 hours of spotting sounds like an implantation bleed.

Go directly to a lab at your local hopsital and have a blood test. Costs about R80 and you will have your result within 30 minutes. You could do a HTP first, it should show up positively by this stage.

Start taking folic acid even if you aren't pregnant as you should begin taking when you are trying for a baby. If you haven't started yet, don't stress, just get some from the pharmacy now.

Best of luck and hope for your sake that the tests are positive!

I also had the same symptons. I had my normal periods for 2 months, but I was already pregnant. i think u should go to your nearest chemist, and get yourself a home pregnancy test, or rather go and see you doctor.

good luck

Those ae the exact symptoms i am having.My last period was Nov 9 and i am now 6 weeks pregnant.However,I think you should go to your doc and check the bleeding coz its not a good sign if you are pregnant.I have heard of people having a light period while pregnant so don't get to worried but just go for a test and if you are preg then check why you were bleeding.Good Luck!!!
