Implantation Bleeding or Period?

Implantation Bleeding

Implantation bleeding, or is it a period? This article will answer your questions about implantation bleeding symptoms, normal colors, what heavy implantation bleeding means, and more.

Implantation bleeding can be mistaken for a normal period, especially for women trying to conceive. Even if you aren’t actively wanting to get pregnant, but you’ve missed your period and are now experiencing light spotting, you may be worried and asking yourself – “Is this Implantation Bleeding or a Period?” It can definitely be confusing, and worrisome, as implantation bleeding is one of the very first signs of pregnancy.

Women with irregular periods can also easily confuse implantation bleeding for a period, because sometimes, when you have irregular menstrual cycles, you don’t always have a regular flow. Some months can be lighter than others, and this can definitely make you worried about whether or not you’re pregnant.

Implantation bleeding becomes even more complex when you consider the timing of it.

A normal period, for women with a healthy 28-day cycle, occurs 14 days after you ovulate. Since most women conceive the week they ovulate (when they are most fertile), implantation usually takes place between 10 and 14 days after ovulation. This timing makes ovulation bleeding coincide with the same time your normal period would start, which can make it very confusing to distinguish implantation bleeding with a light period.

What is Implantation Bleeding?

Implantation bleeding is one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. Not every pregnant woman will experience it; some will and some won’t.

During implantation, the newly fertilized egg (called the blastocyst, because right now, your future baby is only a rapidly growing ball of cells) has made its way from the fallopian tubes to your uterus, where it will now completely embed itself within the lining of the uterus.

Because of the complex nature of conception and pregnancy, only half of these blastocysts will successfully implant themselves in the uterine lining. Those that fail to embed will get shed, along with all the uterine tissue, and you’ll end up having a very early miscarriage. Sometimes, these are called “chemical pregnancies,” and most women who experience them never realized they were pregnant in the first place. The bleeding that results will be like a normal menstrual period.

If the fertilized egg is successful in embedding itself into your uterine lining, you may experience some light bleeding (known as spotting or staining). This is implantation bleeding.

An estimated 25 percent of pregnant women experience implantation bleeding and light bleeding in early pregnancy, but most of these cases end up being fine and the woman has a full-term baby.

Length of Implantation Bleeding

For most women who experience implantation bleeding, they will notice light bleeding for only one or two days. However, there’s no “hard” rule on how long implantation bleeding will list, since every pregnancy and every woman is different. For some women, implantation bleeding is very light, similar to one of the last days of your period, or a very light period day, when you just need to wear a panty liner.

Your implantation bleeding can last only a couple of hours, and then it’s gone. For other women, they might have spotting on and off for a couple of days. However, there are even others who claim that they had heavier implantation bleeding that lasted up to four days, just like an average length of a period.

Because the length of implantation bleeding is different for every woman, take a home pregnancy test if you are worried that you might be pregnant.

Like with a normal menstrual period, implantation bleeding will stop on its own.

Implantation Bleeding or Period?

Are you having menstrual bleeding or heavy implantation bleeding? If you are sexually active and having unprotected sex, you should always assume that you could be pregnant.

If you think that your spotting or bleeding could be implantation bleeding, ask yourself some questions.

  • How heavy is your flow?
  • What color is the blood?
  • Is there a pattern to the bleeding? Is it on and off, or a continuous flow of blood?

You are probably experiencing implantation bleeding and not a regular menstrual period in the following situations:

  • Your menstrual flow is scanty – on and off – and spotty. You aren’t continually bleeding, like with a regular period. You notice blood when you wipe, but it’s not a gush of blood.
  • The blood that comes out is pinkish to brownish. It is not heavy like a period.
  • The pattern of vaginal bleeding doesn’t follow the normal rhythm of your menstrual period. In a normal period, the flow starts off light, then gets heavier and heavier, and at the tail end of your period, the flow becomes light again.
  • You notice bleeding a couple of days, or a week before your scheduled period. Though implantation bleeding can occur at roughly the same time as your period, it can occur before your normal period.

If your periods have always been regular, and suddenly, you experience some spotting or light bleeding, you should take a home pregnancy test.

When your vaginal bleeding is a result of a regular period and not implantation bleeding, you will have a normal flow. The bleeding will be light at first and steadily become more moderate in flow and then heavy. For the last one or two days, you will have light, on and off bleeding, similar to implantation bleeding. Period blood is always bright red, and it can come with clots. You may have uncomfortable menstrual cramps, backaches, bloating, and feel pretty yucky while on your period.

Women with irregular or abnormal menstrual periods may experience their periods differently, but I am speaking in general about normal menstrual periods. If you have irregular periods, it may be very hard for you to know if it’s implantation bleeding or a period. So take a home pregnancy test to be sure whether or not you’re pregnant.

Comparison Chart – Implantation Bleeding vs. Period

As you can see from the below comparison chart, there are differences between implantation bleeding and normal period bleeding can be similar, but there are enough differences that if you pay attention to the flow, you can tell them apart.

This is a general comparison. Remember that every woman is different, but in general, these are the differences between Implantation Bleeding and a Period.

Implantation Bleeding Period Bleeding
Scanty menstrual flow; on and off; spotty. Pattern is not normal. Light bleeding.  Normal flow; Light at first, then heavy, and then light again.
  Lasts a few hours to 1-2 days 3-5 days on average, can last up to 7 days
 Usually pinkish to brownish blood. No clots. Bright red blood. With a heavy flow, may include clots.
   Mild to moderate menstrual-like cramps.      Menstrual cramps.


Sometimes, spotting can be indication that your period is about to stop. Some women will spot on and off a few days before your menstruation begins, and this can really make it confusing to know whether it’s implantation bleeding or a period. So if you experience spotting, wait a few days and if your period still hasn’t come, take a pregnancy test.

Implantation Bleeding Symptoms

Along with implantation bleeding, you may experience some cramping. They may feel like menstrual cramps. Implantation cramping can occur alone, or with bleeding.

Implantation cramps occur because as the fertilized egg (the blastocyst) burrows and embeds itself into the lining of your uterus, it can cause your uterine muscles to contract. These contractions can pinch on nerve endings, which can lead to menstrual-like cramping for 24 to 48 hours, though sometimes it can a little longer than that.

Researchers don’t know why some women experience implantation bleeding and cramping, and others don’t. It’s possible that some women are more tolerant of aches and pains, and others are more sensitive to it.

Along with implantation bleeding and cramping, you may start to experience other early pregnancy symptoms, including bloating, fatigue, mood swings and emotional changes, headaches, acne, and other bothersome symptoms.

Implantation Bleeding Color

The color of implantation bleeding can vary from woman to woman. In a majority of the cases, it’s pinkish in color. There is some variation on the implantation bleeding color, though. It can be bright red blood – signaling that it’s fresh blood, or new blood just shed by the uterine lining. Light brown to brownish blood – this is older blood, perhaps blood that was stuck in your uterine wall after the fertilized egg buried itself in your womb, and this blood has finally been shed – has also been reported as a normal implantation bleeding color.

As long as your implantation bleeding is not heavy or profuse, the color of your implantation blood doesn’t really matter. You should only experience spotting for a short amount of time, and you shouldn’t be experiencing much discomfort. However, if you are indeed pregnant, it’s a good idea to report your symptoms to your doctor and make sure you go in for all your prenatal visits to ensure your pregnancy is going well.

Can Implantation Bleeding Be Red?

Yes, implantation bleeding can be light to bright red in color. It can be normal to see red blood during implantation.

Bright red implantation bleeding signals that within your uterus or the uterine lining, there is an area that is actively bleeding, and blood is flowing from this area and out of you very quickly. It could be a sign that implantation has just taken place.

Can Implantation Bleeding Be Heavy?

Heavy implantation bleeding is not normal. Implantation bleeding is almost always light. You will notice it when you wipe and see blood on the bathroom tissue. Normal implantation bleeding should not be profuse, as this can signal that a miscarriage is occurring. You will want to contact your doctor if you notice heavy implantation bleeding to check out what is causing your heavy vaginal bleeding.

Heavy Implantation Bleeding

Because it is not normal to have heavy implantation bleeding, you will want to check with your gynecologist or healthcare provider to see if your pregnancy is still healthy, or if there is something else causing your heavy implantation bleeding.

Heavy bleeding can be a sign that you are miscarrying. It could also be a sign of an ectopic or tubal pregnancy – one that occurs when the fertilized egg implants itself in another part of your body; in most cases, in the fallopian tubes. Molar pregnancies – a pregnancy in which the embryo is missing but all the other tissues are still there – can also cause heavy bleeding.

So bottom line – check with your doctor about any heavy bleeding that you’re experiencing, especially if you think you are pregnant.

Why Home Pregnancy Tests are Important

If you have normal periods with an average flow, you shouldn’t have any trouble telling implantation bleeding from a menstrual period. However, if your periods are irregular, usually lighter in flow, you will need to take a home pregnancy test, or contact your gynecologist or healthcare provider and request a blood pregnancy test.

Testing for pregnancy will be the only way to tell whether or not you’re pregnant. You cannot verify your pregnancy without one.

You can only test for pregnancy after you’ve missed your period. Home pregnancy tests are not accurate until the day of your missed period (at the earliest). Don’t jump the gun and test too early. Their may not be enough human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) in your blood stream yet. This pregnancy hormone first enters your bloodstream, and finally into your urine, which is the reason blood pregnancy tests are usually more accurate earlier on.

When buying a home pregnancy test, pay attention to the sensitivity, which will be printed on the packaging. Pregnancy tests sensitivities can range between 10 to 40 mIU/ml. Obviously, the lower the level, this means the lower concentration of hCG needs to be in your bloodstream before pregnancy can be detected. Testing too early can give you a negative result, even if you are indeed pregnant. So try to wait until your missed period, and test again if you think you are pregnant but the test reads negative.

Other First Signs of Pregnancy

In addition to implantation spotting and cramping, the other signs that you may be pregnant include breast changes (sensitive, tingly, swollen); extreme exhaustion and feeling insanely worn-out (similar to how you might feel during PMS but for some women, it feels 100 times worse); feeling nauseous; the need to pee all the time (frequent urination); and just feeling that something is off. Be on the lookout for your missed period – which is definitely the most obviously earliest sign of pregnancy. Pregnancy is so different for everyone. You might have only one or two of these symptoms, or none at all. But if you are ever worried, definitely take a test!

    Ok my period or that’s if it is my period but it started two days before my actual period is due. I’m confused I don’t need a pad or tampons for the bleeding. Having mild cramps though. Need Help Answers please

  • Jacinta October 23, 2016, 4:54 am

    So about a month ago I took the morning after pill and started spotting two days after taking it (which I got told was normal and could possibly happen) so I wasn’t too worried, then it slowly got heavier then I bled for a week and a half, almost two weeks and then it stopped.
    Any how, about a two weeks ago my partner and I had unprotected sex and for the past week I’ve been spotting on and off and now I have a really light period too the point, there’s only blood when I wipe and once taking a tampon out there’s barley anything on it beside a light bright pinkish red colour and tiny blood clots, not to mention the on and off cramps.
    Can someone please help me out as to what’s happening with my body? I’m hell worried

  • Alma Puga October 22, 2016, 2:39 pm

Bright red, heavy then light like a normal period (it only last 3 days). I took another pregnancy test and it came back positive. Not sure if i had a normal period or if I’m really pregnant. So confused…someone help please!

  • Julie October 7, 2016, 8:58 am

    So I am 18, almost 19, and my period was about 2-3 weeks late. I am under a ton of stress right now with college, work, living on my own, and a relationship. I figured that might be the cause for it since thats happened to me before while under a lot of stress. But what I thought was my period was something I never experienced while being late. The blood was brown and it wasnt its normal consistency. I am now sexually active compared to before when I was stressed. Could this be a factor? Or whats the likelihood of me being pregnant when I am the 2-3 weeks late and I am getting the brown period like blood now???

  • lisa October 6, 2016, 4:21 pm


    i started my period 2nd of this month, and meant to be finishing today, today i seen pink blood on a tissue when i went the toilet and on my pad, sorry too much information lol, can someone please tell what it is please and if anyone else has had it.

    thank you.

  • Sky October 5, 2016, 9:05 pm

    I will be 14 in 3 days. I am 4 days late I my period but I am NOT involved in sexual activity I swear. But I’ve noticed today I have a very light spotting going on, I see it as a brownish color on my pad and when I wipe, but nothing more. This happened last month September 2016 counting out the spotting, I was 4 days late, it is now October 5, 2016. What do I do and what’s going on?

    • Ronnie October 12, 2016, 3:41 pm

      Most likely your securely active even though your 12 or thirteen which I honestly don’t know why your even on to is sight does your mother know??

  • Angeel October 5, 2016, 6:23 pm

    I was 4 days late on my period. Once i started it was really light i’m on my second day and it feels like i’m about to end..

  • D October 4, 2016, 1:19 pm

    Im really confused. I typically have a rough time with my period and the worst cramps possible, to the point I need midol around the clock to be able to tolerate the cramping. 16dpo, also the day I was due for AF, I insterted a tampon before bed, assuming I could wake up with AF at the door. Ive been getting up every night to pee and out of curiosity when I was in the bathroom, I took the tampon out, and there were brownish and light red/pinkish on it. TMI, sorry. I figured it was AF, bummed. ITs been like this the last 2-1/2 days now. Only mild cramping, NOTHING what I have been through before, that I can hardly tell im cramping, im not moody as if I would be with AF, or as close to being heavy as I typically would be. I guess after trying to conceive for over a year, is it possible to have implantation this late, and is it possible that the tampon itself is causing the red/pinkish due to irritation? I want so badly to be pregnant, but scared I’ll get another BFN. (I cheated 4 days before expected AF and got a neg. test result). Afraid to test again if im just overthinking all this.

  • Raylene October 3, 2016, 11:30 am

    Hi all. im really confused. My AF is always on time and lasts 4-5days. However on 14dpo I had slight cramping like my AF is coming, yet I had light pink bleeding which turned bright red, I used a pantyliner. On 15 dpo I could feel getting wet but nothing on pantyliner. Only a little blood when I wipe. It didnt last a full 2 days. On 19 dpo I notice my CM is creamy and sometimes its brown stringy. Tested 18 dpo and got a bfn. Havent tested again im on 20 dpo. Could I be pregnant?

  • AC October 1, 2016, 10:46 am

    My periods have been constantly getting longer and longer for the last three months. From may to june 4.5 weeks, from june to july 5 weeks and 3 days, from july to august 5 weeks and 4 days. And then I had SUPER light flow. i barely cramped the first day and the next 3 days I had a medium to light flow to spotting.
    About 13 days after my last period I experienced some sticky brown discharge when i would wipe.. It continued the day after and to yesterday. I am not sure about today. I took a pregnancy test but It is obviously still too soon to tell. My husband and I usually use condoms but we all know something could have gone wrong. I am still 2-3 weeks out from when my period should be and I have no idea if this was implantation bleeding or not… If i get a blood test can it tell me sooner than a pee test.. if so how long should i wait before a blood test?

  • Lesley September 24, 2016, 11:56 am

    Looking for advice I took a pregnancy test clear blue digital last Sunday and got positive result 1-2 weeks yesterday I went to toilet and there was blood it got heavier threw the day with very bad back cramps I tested yesterday afternoon and said negative the bleeding has calmed right down and I have only used 1 pad in past 24 hrs there were clots could this be implantation bleeding or is it more than likely a miscarriage

    • Lesley September 24, 2016, 12:23 pm

      Wondered if anyone could help I took a positive clear blue digital on Sunday yesterday I started bleeding and it steadily got heavier but not really heavy I’ve used 2 pads since yesterday I done a test again this morning not a digital one and it came back negative has anyone else has this and still continued on to a healthy full term pregnancy I’m not sure if it’s implantation bleeding or the period I missed the bleeding has almost stopped today but the negative test is frightening me that I may have lost the pregnancy

    • D October 4, 2016, 1:21 pm

      Not sure what you found out, but same thing happened to me last May and it turned out to be a MC. Im hoping that wasn’t the case for you though.

  • Ana September 23, 2016, 10:35 pm

    I was never pregnant before so I don’t know how it feels but I felt pregnant even before missing my period, I have a regular period of 28 days and after experiencing pinkish light bleed 8 days after my ovulation started date(unprotected sex) ok had s start my period 19/09/16 I experience cramps, low back pain, fatigue, tiredness, painful Brest(don’t normally feel that) took 3 tests negative and now aparently my period arrived. Still light colour can I still be pregnant??? I still feel bloated and cramps headache… And I feel this strange mama feeling. Is very strange? Can anyone help?

  • Annette September 22, 2016, 11:44 am

    I had my period at the beginning of the month. It was incredibly light even though it lasted 6 days…I thought it was just a result of my birth control. Now..3 weeks later I’m spotting pretty consistently and I’m cramping. I’m not due to get my period for another 9 days….so now I’m not sure if to blame this as a side effect of my birth control or if it is actually implantation bleeding.

    • Jazmine October 2, 2016, 3:16 pm

      I am going through the same exact thing . And I am really scared I am only 18 going on 19 and I started my period early then it came on like 2 weeks but instead I’m spotting now and it’s light pink/red !

  • Leann September 20, 2016, 10:15 pm

    Hi,I use the Ovia app to track my period and fertility, and was supposed to get my period on 9/16/16. It didn’t show up, so I waited till yesterday 9/19/16( has been on the 19 past few months). And still nothing like period has happened. I have had sensitivity in my breasts/nipples( not normal for my periods) and cramping( about same level as w periods). Also have had a couple spots between yesterday and today of pink to brown spotting. Only occasionally, and never showing more the. When I wipe( unless is use a lifts tampon). I took a test yesterday, w a negative result ( was at like 430-5 pm so might have read wrong)should I just wait and see if I get my period, or test again? Could it be from implantation?

    • Kim September 23, 2016, 1:54 am

      The best time to take pregnancy test according to my research is early in the morning. Your first pee.

  • Abby September 1, 2016, 11:06 pm

    Hello ladies, so I have a question that is really confusing me, I’m trying to conceive and have failed quiet a few times, two months ago on july, I had unprotected sex with my partner, the next month on August I got my period which lasted 3 days, so I was very dissapointed that I didn’t conceive, but i got my period again on august 30th, I noticed that my flow was beyond light and it only lasted 2 days, I haven’t done a pregnancy test yet since I’m pretty sure I’m not pregnant, but this is beyond strange for me because my periods have always been regular, any ideas as to why it was different?

    • Kelsey Carr September 12, 2016, 10:15 pm

  • Megan August 30, 2016, 9:12 am

    I was on my period for a full week was off 2 days and now today I’m back on it again. Its a normal amount of blood not too heavy and not too light. I’m also on the Depo shot but I barely ever get my period on it and haven’t until now. Whenever I did get it it was very light and lasted a very short time. Could I be pregnant? Or Is it just my body. I also breastfeed my daughter but she hasn’t weaned so nothings changed hormonally.

  • Peenaz Gupta August 9, 2016, 10:16 am

    My egg got rupture on 14th day on 24th July,16 and due date is 11th Aug,16 but I got my periods on 7th Aug,16. And earlier to that, my period was irregular and my doctor suggested me to take Goodova 500mg from 3 day of the menstural cycles for 5 days and take MET PCO care as well 2 tab in day with follicular acid. The bleeding was like lighter or spotted on first day and then heavier on 2nd day, and became lighter by end of the day. Now we are getting confused that this is the implantation bleeding or menustral bleeding. Can anyone confirm us what is this exactly. I was expecting to get pregnant in this month.

    • D3 September 22, 2016, 9:39 pm

      Hi peenaz.. Did u get ur solution? Bcoz I m also in medicine like u and had only few drops of blood on my period day. Today on this 3rd day of my period (expected implantation) I had negative pregnancy test. Really wanna conceive. So plz share ur experience

  • Frybread lady August 2, 2016, 4:53 pm

    AF is due for me today. (Aug 3rd) Ive had very light pink spotting on and off for a few days now. Hubby and I have been trying for a baby since Oct 2015 Im 39 & hubby is 23 (yep my toy boy lol)
    We so badly want to have a baby. Neither of us have any children. It would just compleite our family. Hubby says my boobs are a bit firmer at the moment. I didnt notice this. Ive had a bit of a sore lower back the past week. And today bit of cramps not bad tho. I dnt normally get cramps when AF visits. I dont knw if im preggy or. Not. I guess cause I so badly want to be. Maybe im thinking too much into things are there when they arnt.

    • Frybread lady August 6, 2016, 6:19 pm

      7th Aug now. Took test few days ago neg.
      Ive had very light spotting on and off for past few days. Lastnight I thought AF had come aa it was a little bit heavyer then it was. When I get my AF its always very heavy. So before bed I used a tampon so as to not wake up in middle of night to a mess. I normally have to change it a few times a night. About 5am this morning i decided to remove tampon as i would normally had changed it at lest once or twice by now. When i removed it there was very little blood on it. More like what I would get on the very last day of AF.
      Im so confused. Please help someone. I really need advise.

      • montana August 21, 2016, 8:09 am

        Are you pregnant?

  • Nene July 31, 2016, 9:59 pm

    AF was suppose to arrive as of today 1/8/16. Started spotting on the 29/7/2016 and still light spotting today. Confused????

  • Luz July 26, 2016, 11:30 pm

    I’m concerned because my last period was on may the 20th and two almost three weeks later I had spotting it was pink and only could be seen when I wiped then it just stopped that same day , then on july the 11th I had it again only for a couple of hours and it stopped again Ive done pregnancy test and theyve been negative I havent tested again recently I guess I kind of gave up but is there a possibility that I could be pregnant and what I experienced was implantation bleeding ?

    • Em July 31, 2016, 1:48 pm

      So, I had these symptoms. Light spotting very rarely in between periods. I had a sweep, and it was due to my cervix. Cervical erosion, not as bad as it sounds. :) my previous contraceptive pill had made the inner cells grow on the outside and made it bleed. After intercourse sometimes. It went away when I came off microgynon. Just check with a nurse

  • Christy July 21, 2016, 5:08 pm

    I’m really concerned to know if what I’m feeling is normal or not. Never had this feeling. July 1st I had unprotected sex. I was supposed to start my period the 14th of july. On the 13th I experienced very light pink spotting that only showed when I whiped. That also continued through the 14th and 15th. The 16th it got heavier but went back to spotting on the 17th. Since then I have been cramping as if I’m on my period but no blood. This has been going on for 4 days already and feels like it just gets worse each day. I took a test on the 18th and it was a very very faint positive. Waiting on the results of a blood test. But just wondering if anyone has experienced this before?

  • Ekta July 20, 2016, 11:09 am

    We have been trying since March 2015 and it is July 2016. My period was due on 7/18 but I was only spotting brow for few hours and clean for next day. Wednesday morning 07/20 still nothing and before leaving for work I stated bleeding the color is pinking red. This has happen few times before is this a sing of chemical pregnancies? Is there any way to check if I am have miscarriage?
    Any help would be great.

  • Marina July 19, 2016, 9:36 am

    Hi There. Thanks for all your insight. I am currently trying to get pregnant. I’m due to start my period in 4-5 days, but started bleeding yesterday. It’s medium flow, seems different from period flow, no cramping, no clots. I took a preggo test last night even though I knew it might be too early to tell, and it was negative. Is it possible I’m pregnant and just tested to early or is it more likely an early period? Should I test again in a few days? When?

    • Rachel August 11, 2016, 2:32 pm

      Sorry not much of a response but I’m having the same thing happening to me too! We miscarried about a month ago and are now trying and I had the same exact thing happen to me starting today and I feel like no mater what site I go on it’s either a dead end or its a 50/50 it just makes you freak out more and feel helpless. Its also to early to take a pregnancy test just cause if I am my HCG levels are probably too low. I was just wondering if you ever found out anything just cause having someone going thru the same thing with really help me out and feel a bit at ease at this point.

  • Dani July 18, 2016, 1:23 pm

    Hi I’m normally a very normal person with my periods.. Last month I was a week early with 3 days of spotting and then a 6 day full period I think.. I’m 5 days late this month and now have a small amount of dark brownish blood.. Took a test this morning and it came negative. No cramps or anything. Feel absolutely fine.. Help please.

    • Helen July 15, 2016, 5:31 am

      Hi, were you pregnant?

  • Catherine July 11, 2016, 11:22 pm

    I have a 32-day cycle.
    On 14th June, I had sex. My period was due on 18th-22nd June.
    I missed it. On July 6, I had a pretty decent dark colored discharge, like I usually get on day 1 of my regular periods, which lasted for 1.5-2 days. 3 days later, I took a home pregnancy test which showed negative.
    Could I be pregnant?
    I am doubtful because:
    1. I had sex just 5-6 days before my periods were due.
    2. Implantation occurs after 10-14 days of ovulation. I would have ovulated around 10th June but bled almost a month later, which seems improbable due to pregnancy.
    Please clear my doubts!

  • Tamara Murphy July 9, 2016, 10:09 pm

    I’m 42. This cycle, I was feeling very off like a week before my period was due. Everything was and still is swollen. Breasts got very sore,especially nipples. They felt like they were being raped by my bra and the bed sheet. Swollen hands and feet. More back ache than usual. Lots of migraines. Swollen from hip bone to hip bone, especially above pubic bone. MY panties are snug. (But I’ve recently lost 40#) Vomiting out of nowhere with no nausea. Had unprotected sex every day with my boyfriend. Period due on July 5. Still hadn’t come.by 2.pm. so I took hpt. It was negative. As I wiped after going pee, there was blood. Thought I’d started my period. I bled off n on for bout 36 hours, just the tip of the tampon was light blood. Never bked in the liner overnight. Bleeding stopped for a day. Then spotted friday. That was all bright red. Think spotted pink for 6 hours when I wiped. Last time I peed something red and stringy was on the tissue. Not passing any clots. But never had this happen either. There’s a major fullness in my pelvis. And I’m extremely over emotional. My boy friemd smokes cigs, which usually doesn’t bother me. But since yesterday every time hi.lights up I’m nauseated. I can smell the ashtray from3 ft away and it only has 3 butts in it. We went to the grocery store July 4. As we walked in the front door I could smell the seafood dept and nearly lost my dinner. Was this implantation bleeding and too soon to have a positive hpt?

  • Deepthi July 9, 2016, 9:43 pm

    I am deepthi.. I am already under going a treatment for correcting my periods. I took femilon tablet for 4 months(from Feb to may).period came on 12th of June.it was there for 6 days. Again on 26th June(15th day of my periods) it started bleeding.I consulted my gynaecologist. What she said was if this bleeding lasts for 2 days then it will be mid term ovulation or if its there for more than 2 days it will be due to infertility issue. And the worse happened. It bleeds for 4 days.there was pain in my tummy.by the advice given by gyane I did a Usg scan n AMH blood test. All the results r normal.I have no issue of infertility. Only because of my over weight I am not able to conceive. Doc told to do work out and I have to take a strict diet. I am doing all these now.yesterday was my 14th day.I had some brownish discharge but not bleeding. We had regular intercourse. Currently I am not in my hometown and not able to contact my gyane. Is this a implantation bleeding or mid term ovulation. I am really confused. Do I need to do a pregnancy test.please I need a reply soon..it’s really urgent

  • tiffany July 7, 2016, 6:18 pm

  • Mary July 1, 2016, 7:22 pm

    I need advice. I took a clearblue pregnancy test 2 days before my period was due. It said pregnant 1-2 weeks. I went to my doctor the same day his test was negative and told me to do another one on the day my period was due. Two days later i did another 1 the results was the same pregnant 1-2 weeks. Later that afternoon my period started it was really heavy and has continued for 14 days only now its much lighter. Need advice

    • Jeremy August 9, 2016, 9:42 pm

      Were you pregnant?

  • Audree July 1, 2016, 11:49 am

    I’m suppose to be on my period this week but it hasn’t come; just brown discharge and when I was sexually active this week, there was blood afterwards but it stopped. Has anyone had this happen?
    I am on birth control and I did take Plan B about 2 weeks ago because I was late on my pill by about 15 hours. I don’t normally take my birth control on time but I do take it every day within a couple hours of each other. I have on a combo-pill.
    What do you think the chances of being pregnant are and how long should I wait to get a pregnancy test (if I should)?

    Thank you!

  • sukayna July 1, 2016, 7:27 am

    I missed my period this month and since yesterday I started noticing that when I wipe me I see same pinkish blood and it when away but 2day it started again I always have my peroids on a regulary basis I even have heavy cramps in my lower tummy what can it be please I need same help


  • Guest June 28, 2016, 4:53 am

    I usually used to have regular periods for 26 days but this month I got 4 days late..I had sex intercourse before 10days..is that I’m pregnant

    • Queen June 30, 2016, 11:39 pm

      It could be a possibility you are pregnant but at this time it is very hard to tell. If you were late for your period and it finally came on and it was regular flow then it’s a strong possibility you are not pregnant. Your period can change in lengths due to stress, hormones, eating habits etc. If you are concerned and want to know if you are pregnant pls feel free to get a home pregnancy test. Also before your period was 4 days late were there any other signs of early pregnancy that is just not normal to you? If you are looking to conceive I will say good luck to you and as of right now if you haven’t took a test already I would recommend doing so and if you get a negative then wait a week or so to test again. Also if you don’t want to play the waiting game as most of us do then schedule you an appointment with your primary care doctor to have a blood test done. I hope this helps.

  • Sophie June 24, 2016, 9:18 am

    I had my period maybe a couple days early and had no cramps until I came off my period and light amounts of blood when I wiped, what could it mean? Very confused my and my partner are doing the whole if it happens it happens, but right now not sure whats happening, as usually I get a warning sign that am going to come on like v bad cramping in my back but i had no warning on this one, I wouldn’t even say I was cramping after my period it was more like weird feeling, my appetite has really increased but then I get full easy and then an hour later want more food, would love some help sorry for the details but really don’t know what’s going on sorry

    • Queen June 30, 2016, 11:55 pm

      Hello Sophie,
      It sounds to me you may be experiencing implantation bleeding. If you come on each month and your have a regular flow and all of a sudden it’s different then I would recommend taking a home pregnancy test. If you are negative and you are still experiencing early pregnancy symptoms then I would wait a week or a few days and test again. You can also schedule an appointment with your primary care doctor and talked to he or she about your symptoms because they could run a blood test and confirm it for your even if a hpt can’t detect it yet. If you did experience implantation bleeding then your body is really going to start preparing yourself for your bun in the oven and a home pregnancy test and or blood test should be able to detect your hcg levels. hope this helps. and good luck

  • Lax June 19, 2016, 3:04 am

    Hi I have Pcod .. So my periods are basically not regular. Sometimes they r not the for 3 – 4 months.. me n my hd are ttc..but he’s abroad and we were together last month from May 19th to 4th June .. From 7 th june I developed a cold and started a constant headache from 12 th .. I was feeling really tired and didn’t feel like eating anything.. On 18th June I started a mild brownish discharge .. The discharge reduced on 19 th June but I have a backache.. I did a hpt on 19th morning which turned out bfn but showed an evap line some hrs later . I am really confused pls help.

    • Jeremy August 9, 2016, 10:07 pm

      I had sex with my wife on the 25th of June, pretty sure she was ovulating because of her milky white discharge we noticed after sex, but that could also be because the vagina secretes it when the woman is turned on for more lubrication. The sex was unprotected and she is on no birth control right now.

      Her period was supposed to start around August 5th 6th, she started bleeding on the 7th, it was kind of normal red to begin with, turned pinkish and then brownish. The flow was kinda normal to begin with and gradually got lighter. It started on the 7th and ended on the 7th, a total of 6 hours and she wasnt bleeding or spotting at all anymore.

      It’s now the 9th and she started bleeding at 8 pm, she said it’s more of normal flow right now. She’s only been bleeding for a couple hours so I’m not sure if she’s gonna stop in several hours, change color or what, or if she’s gonna bleed for the next several days.

      Could someone tell me what could be happening cause we were hoping she was pregnant. She was going to do a pregnancy test in the morning. Could she still be pregnant?

      I would really appreciate it if someone could answer quickly.


  • Katy June 13, 2016, 11:57 pm

    I usually have my period about every 25 days or so. And it usually last for about 6-7 days. Only this time I started what I thought was my period after 15 days from my last and it lasted about 4 days. The bleeding is browner than usual and light compared to what my normal period is. My nipples have been really sensitive which doesn’t really bother me on my period but they do now..I’ve been bloated and getting more acne..I have headaches and I’ve been going to the bathroom more frequently. I woke up this morning and didnt feel good at all. I started throwing up and had a little diaherra which made me think I had the stomach flew or something. Everything I ended up eating that day didn’t sit right and made me cringe. I have somewhat cramps but I’m not sure if I’m pregnant or what.. I’m 16 years old and I’m freaking the hell out. Does this sound like early signs of pregnancy?

  • Marie mae June 10, 2016, 11:32 pm

    Okay so I’m not supposed to get my period for another good 5 days and when I woke up this morning I noticed a little blood , I put a tampon in like I normally do when I start my period and continued on with my day usually the first day of my period I will blow through tampons but today I only went through one and it was barely covered but I also noticed it seems like there is a clear discharge alon with the blood, my niples have also been pretty sensitive. I’ve had unprotected sex and we have been half ass kind of trying , I’ve been told before I may never have kids and I’ve also actually really tried and never had luck, anyone have any suggestions if they think I’m getting my period or if this sounds like implantation bleeding, thank you!

  • Michelle June 10, 2016, 2:20 pm

    If you have your implantation bleeding during the time you would have your menstruation when can you test for an accurate result please?

    I am about 4 days late on my period , took a pregnancy test today and it came out to be negative , not sure if it’s too soon , I am just really confused because I’ve had some of the symptoms but haven’t had any today but just spotting light color pink , anyone’s opinion ? I am usually regular with my period last time i had intercorse a week after my period , so now I am just really wondering

  • Frybread lady June 6, 2016, 3:58 am

    Hi. ☺ Im 38 my hubby is 22 . We have been trying for a baby since October 2015 it is now June 2016.
    Back in December 2015 I missed a period at the start of Jan 2016 a few days after missing 2nd period, while having a shower I had huge clots of blood, then bleeding. I didnt go to the dr at the time as i knew i misscarried and there wasnt anything the dr could do. A few months later while at the drs. I told the dr. He confermed thats what would have happened.
    It is now june 6th 2016 my period was due today. On the 3rd ( 3 days before period was due) I had very light spotting, light pink colour. On the 4th. Nothing at all. Yesterday (5th june) I started to spot again. Again very lighty. Only noticable when wiping myself. Today 6th june ( day my period is due) Ive had spotting all day. Light. A light pink. And sometimes a little bit brownish. No red or bright red blood. My normal period is very heavy. And come on quickly. This is not like my normal period at all.
    For the past week or so my right nipple has been extremly sensitive to touch. But today its not at all.
    Ive been really grumpy ( so my hubby says lol) the past week or so.
    Really tired. More so after lunch. I just want to have a sleep but cant im at work lol.
    Can you shed some light on the matter?
    I really hope and pray im preggy. We want to start our family. Neither of us have any children.
    I havent mentioned anything to my hubby or anyone else as i dont want to get excited only to be let down.
    If I havent had my normal period by 9th June (3 days time) im thinking of taking a test. Ia that too soon?
    Thank you in advance.

    • Frybread lady June 7, 2016, 4:10 pm

  • Lori lee June 4, 2016, 12:55 am

    2 days ago I was suppose to get my period and 2 days before that I spotted and went a away while on the day of my period was suppose to start I spotted once again for 2 days now it’s gone again. I did take a hpt but it came out negative. Should I wait again to take another one? My periods have never been so irregular like this one. Could it be possible I am pregnant?

    • cannolly June 21, 2016, 8:44 pm

  • Michelle May 30, 2016, 8:14 pm

    This is gonna sound crazy but My partner poked 5 holes in a condom and we had sex without me knowing, it was a day after I stopped my period, and I stopped may 20th and started spotted brown stuff for 2 days may the 28th.. Could this be implant bleeding??

  • Paula May 25, 2016, 11:37 am

    I had unprotected sex a couple of days after my last period, which ended on April 13. A few weeks later, I had another “period”, a little over a week early. It lasted a few days and was extremely light. The following week, I started being very tired, having food aversion (still can’t think of eating chicken or fish!), cramps, gas-y, mood swings and was overly emotional about everything. I don’t typically have strong PMS, so that really stood out for me and I took a HPT – it was negative. Then the nausea started and I threw up a few meals. And then all the symptoms stopped, other than food aversion, so I figured it was PMS after all – but over a week later and my period still hasn’t come. I did another HPT this morning and it’s negative again.
    Has this happened to anyone, only to realize that they were in fact pregnant? Or, only for your period to show up again weeks late? I’m not sure what to think and can’t get in to see my doctor for a while (long enough to make me lose my mind! :) )

    • Tonia May 28, 2016, 11:49 am

      This happened to me but the symptoms went away after a while. I took tests after tests and they were all negative. I am as lost as you are but I think you should visit your doctor for better information.

    • Julie Matoto June 3, 2016, 2:33 am

      Yes, I’ve been feeling the same. I can’t wait to see a doctor.

  • Emmy May 22, 2016, 11:02 pm

    I hadn’t had my menstrual cycle since February 21st. I had been sexually active before then on multiple occasions. My boyfriend had gone away for work at the beginning of march I did not have a period the entire month of March nor did it ever come in April. I never thought that I could be pregnant because my periods just recently began to be normal. It finally came the 9th of may and the last day of my period was the 14th of may. My boyfriend and I had intercourse the night before my period began as well as three other occasions before that night. After my seven day cycle five days passed. And on the sixth day what appeared to be a very light period took place. And the next day it stopped. Long story short, AM I PREGNANT? and what should I do? I’ve taken one at home test that read negative.

Its light and mixed with brown blood (which can also be old blood) I’m bloated like no other. but right before I started bleeding i was urinating at least 5 times in a hour. But now its slowed down a little. I’m still having mild cramps. I just need to know if I should take a pregnancy test now or wait a little while longer.

  • Sindhu March 29, 2016, 8:57 pm

    Hey all, I am a newbie. I am 25 years old. I have been diagnosed with Pcos for six months now. I have been getting very irregular periods since an year(it used to be very regular before). After being diagnosed with Pcos, I started walking for half an hour each day, took prenatal vitamins, drank hot water most of the time and my weight reduced by 3.5kgs now. To my surprise, my periods have also become very regular(since 3 months). This month I got my period on 26th and it was a light period with dark brown color bleeding and it ended the next day. It was a 2 day light period. I am having back pain on and off(never had this before), my legs are paining (it’s a usual thing) and a mild headache at times. Definitely this is a different thing happening in my body this time. Any chances that I am pregnant? If not, pls guide me on fertility issue. I have been married for 2 years now. May God shower his blessings to u all and wishing u all have a baby dust soon!!

  • keisha March 29, 2016, 7:41 pm

    Ok, so i need some help understanding what may be going on with my body. I have irregular cycles. But they usually range from 28-30 days. Well, last month my period was 10 days late. It started on March 15th and ended March 20th. Well, the day before my period ended and the day of, my fiance and I had unprotected sex. It is now 9 days later, and i had light pink spotting for a few hours today and then it stopped. Ive also been having random bouts of dizziness and nausea but not really sure if thats related. I’ve also been extremely tired the past few days. Any feedback would be appreciated as I am extremely confused. Could i have ovulated right after my period ended and could this be implantation bleeding?

  • bujji March 29, 2016, 11:30 am

    Hi ,

    I am 24, married before 9 months.
    Have thyroid since 8 yrs.Have irregular periods.It is always normal with a capsule I use everyday.I do regular check up and it was never an issue.
    2 months back , I relocated to US to my hubby.Since one month ,doing regular exercise 5 workouts a week burning 500 calories/workout.
    I had my last period on Jan 8th when I took a meprate tablet.
    Last two weeks, once in a week I spotted but no periods.
    What’s happening in my body !! Puzzled..Am I carrying(we met once a week in these 2 months) ? Or is it bcz of exercise? or location change?

    Looking for help.
    Thank you

  • Vicky March 26, 2016, 6:21 pm

    Please help I really could use some advice!
    Last week , my husband and I had unprotected sex on Thursday. Fast forward, this week, me and my husband had sex again this past Thursday. Afterwards, there was some blood. I thought my period was coming but it didn’t the blood went away. Usually, sex delays my period for a few minutes, maybe even an hour but, not a whole day, So I took a pregnancy test on Friday, but it was negative. I started spotting on Saturday ( Today) . The day is almost over but I’m still spotting from bright red to brown. It was so little that I only noticed it when I wipe and I don’t even see it every time I wipe. This is nothing like my real period at all! Usually, my period starts on pink then increase to a heavy red flow. Could this possibly be implantation bleeding? When should I take another test? I’m excited and scared because I’ve have two daughters and I’ve never experienced this before.

    Thank you so much in advanced!

  • Jennifer March 24, 2016, 8:19 am

    Educate yourselves ladies. It doesnt hurt to read facts in these articles and listen to your own bodies and come to your own conclusions and at the very most wait until you can take a HPT or talk to you doctor rather than seeking out random strangers opinions to confirm or deny questions that we ALL have that only TIME can tell. Asking for personal “help!” to questions that the aritcles clearly answer makes no sense to me. Only our bodies and time can give you real answers. Every article I read is loaded with comments and questions about personal dates, and personal stories and special circumstances seeking for people to tell you what you want to hear. The “please helps” and the “could I be pregnant” questions are really getting on my darn nerves to be honest. Get a grip ladies. We’re all in the same boat with the wait to find out one way or the other but seeking answers in comment sections of articles that explain clearly what you need to know is, in my opinion pretty ridiculous. Sorry for the rant. Just putting this out there because Ive had it with the ignorance ive come across in every comment section ive come across in all the research Ive done. Anyone else feel the same way? I apologize if I offend anyone. Im sure I have, but come on people! My comment is all in my opinion so I’m not open to debate it. Just putting this out there with the idea that maybe just maybe this will make at least one person stop and think about how ridiculous it is to seek answers in this manner. Best wishes to all. Good luck to everyone ttc!

    • Gemma March 27, 2016, 10:11 pm

      Asking people for help on here is the same as asking doctors. We are all people, just keep tjat in mind.

    • Niky May 15, 2016, 7:39 pm

      Stop being so negative…

    • Elise May 17, 2016, 10:47 am

      Amen, sister! I have been doing a lot of research and have found way too many “OmG am I pregnant?!?!” stories with terrible grammar and spelling, and barely understandable sentences. It’s like a bunch of children are posting (which I fear is true…)

    • Tamara June 21, 2016, 11:43 am

      I 100% agree that it’s ridiculous to seek help in comment sections.

      There are pregnancy and TTC boards where you can ask questions of other women in real time, and everyone sits and stews together until the answers are known — no shame in it, either. To ask about your personal story under someone else’s post, though, is pointless! You wouldn’t sit in the ER waiting room and diagnose yourself using the discharge instructions for the patient in front of you. No! You would go in, see a doctor, and be treated based on your OWN unique situation. Using someone else’s info to help figure your body out is a good resource, but don’t expect people to interpret your personal data or confirm your pregnancy via message board.

  • Snaka2 March 24, 2016, 5:15 am

    Normally a week before my period my breast hurts and I have heartburn, my period last 5days and I use two or 3 pads on day 2 and 3. But this time there was no sign that am about to go for my period, it lasted 3days. At night there was no blood coming out, during the day I used one pad and it wasnt full, on day2 blood came out mostly when I pee, day 4 it was brownish discharge, day5 nothing but heartburn and constipation. 4days after I had sex and I noticed little pinkish blood when I wipe. So I dont know if it was implantation or period….. HELP!!!

  • Kadian March 22, 2016, 8:50 pm

    Hi I have been active for a week straight during the time I would ovulate my period was late by 4 days my breast were sore and I’m eating like crazy now I’m having dark brown light discharge. I did 2 home test both negative but I feel a bit concerned. My partner really wants a baby .

  • bridgett March 21, 2016, 9:52 am

    Hi, I just wanted to get some advice. I am active and do not use protection besides pulling out. Yes I know that isn’t a 100% effective. But I’m usually very heavy through my entire period up until the end. And sometimes my period can be late but it will still always be heavy. I was 7 days late and I started bleeding after intercourse. It wasnt heavy like my normal period but it was there. Then it stopped after two days. And turned into spotting off and on for about three days. Which isn’t normal for me. My period is always heavy for about four days and lights up the fifth day. I have NEVER spotted. I took a pregnancy test after the first day of my missed period and it came out a clear positive. So I took a few over the next several days up until what I thought was my period and all of those were negative. I don’t know what to think.

  • niiknacks March 21, 2016, 7:14 am

    last Monday, March 14, I was spotting – it was pink every time I wiped. Tuesday morning, I woke one with ONE bad cramp. I went to the bathroom and saw blood. Throughout the day, the flow just seemed lighter than normal. I only changed my pad before I went to sleep. This went on until Thursday. Mid afternoon on Thursday, I stopped bleeding. Come Friday, I started bleeding again around noon. I usually have cramps lasting all day on the first day of my period, but I only had that one bad cramp. I took a test on Saturday, but it said it was negative.. What else could this mean? Did I take the test too early?

  • emotional wreck March 19, 2016, 1:13 pm

  • Jenn March 14, 2016, 11:31 pm


    I am looking for some helpful advice/information. I have not gotten my period in 14 days. On day 6 of being late I took an at home pregnancy test and it came up negative. Around day 10 I awoke from my sleep in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom a very small amount of blood came out(red color) and then a lot of white discharge. Still after that no period has came and I constantly feel like I have to pee and I am very bloated, I also feel very tired but I cannot sleep, I get nauseous around 3pm and i stay nauseous for a few hours everyday for about 5 days now ( I have yet to actually throw up) I am so hot all the time I feel like my body is on fire. When I wipe when I go to the bathroom there is very little blood barely any any on the toilet paper and no blood actually streams out of me. Two days ago I had sex and there was a lot of blood but when I went to the bathroom no blood, there’s been no blood on my panties or anything. I feel different and that my body is not at its norm. Could I be pregnant?

  • Mary March 3, 2016, 7:17 am

    I had started a period on Feb 14th. Then started back on Feb 26th. It’s started out brownish for 1 day and its been light but bright red since and is now ongoing for 7 days which is today march 3rd. However I have no blood now unless I wipe and I have to pee often. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. Any idea what it could be?

  • Bryanna February 25, 2016, 10:59 am

    Hi, my period was due on 2/22/16 but it hasn’t come. I also didn’t have any pms symptoms like I normally have. Today I went to the bathroom and noticed it was a very little pinkish color blood on the tissue and in my underwear. Right after, the bleeding stopped. Then, I took a hot bath(it was pretty hot too) and when I stood up I had very little bright red blood on my inner thigh and then the bleeding stopped again. Could this be implantation bleeding or could it be my period?

  • Ekta February 22, 2016, 8:18 pm

    Hi I’m 32 and had my last normal period from 3-8 Jan. I have an average cycle of 33 days and was due to start 5th Feb but didn’t. On 16th Feb I began spotting red which occasionally turned to light pink and brown. This lasted 4 days and since then I continue to spot bright red and have only used panty liners throughout. I have taken 2 hpt and both read negative. I’m confused whether this is implantation bleeding or something else? I haven’t had any pain or cramping and don’t feel any different or show symptoms of pregnancy eg nauseous, tired, achy boobs etc. In fact I have been quite active this past week. I would appreciate some answers!! Thanks

  • confused February 18, 2016, 5:35 pm

    I was supposed to get my period on 02/12/16 and I did not get it. I started spotting for about 6 hours on the 14th and it stopped. I began cramping on the 17th and today I started bleeding like a normal period. I normally cycle every 26 to 28 days and have never been late so I’m a little confused as to why I’m late. Any information would help thank you.

    • confused too March 22, 2016, 11:31 am

      i’m experiencing something very similar too. my period was supposed to start on 03/19/2016, but i started having spotting on 03/18/2016 and it was off and on until 03/22/2016, now on the 22nd I am having a bright red bleeding like a normal period. I’m sometimes early, but i’ve never experienced spotting like this, and I have never been late either. Were you able to find out if you were pregnant or not?

  • C February 17, 2016, 12:43 pm

    The day I was due on my period I had a really light bleed for about 6 hours nothing at all like my normal, I usually come on every 21days and it’s been 27 days now, I have done a test and it come back negative, has anyone had any thing like this before ?

    • Helen March 12, 2016, 12:19 pm

      I got my period on my 24th day of my normal 28 day cycle. It was very light in color and I think it only lasted about two hours. 8 days later today, I have the same thing going on. I have cramping still, my breast still feel sore, and I am so confused. I took the test for the second time and I’m not sure if it is a negative or a positive reading because after an hour I notice a positive line, and I know you’re not supposed to go by that, but I remember years ago when I did the same thing and looked at it again after some time, there was no line before, so I am confused as hell because now I have been noticing a positive line or seems to be after that time span

  • venessa February 16, 2016, 11:32 am

On feb 1, i observed that im starting to experience common preg signs and my entire breast not just the nipples ( which i experienced from progesterone therapy) is very sensitive and painful, neck pains. Feb 9, i noticed some brown spots upon wiping. Feb 10, when i pee this morning theres no stains on my liner yet my theres a slight change in my urine color and brown stain upon wiping.

But I don’t know when my next period date is will it be the 18th or 24th? Please any reasones would be appreciatied. Many thanks Rachelle

  • AlexAndrews98 January 25, 2016, 2:33 am

    Hey everyone, I’m in desperate need of some help.
    So my boyfriend and I have been dating and sexually active with one another for about a year now (we dont use any form of birth control/contraceptive). Well, the period before last, my cycle was abnormally normal haha. My cycles aren’t usually regular, except when I was on birth control, but it was a full 7 day long, consistently heavy period. Leading up to this, I was letting my boyfriend cum in me. He thought if he wasn’t deep in me that I couldn’t get pregnant, so he would pull out late and cum on his way out. Well I end up getting my period, but for 3 days before I got it, it had horrible cramping. I knew my period was coming, but I never experienced cramps so soon. When my period finally came, it was 2 days long and I ended up having a pink/brown discharge for the next 4-5 days (a very small amount to where I could wear 1 panty liner throughout the day). Ever since the really normal period, my boobs have grown and remain, to this day, extremely sensitive. I thought maybe it was my hormones- being 17. But I didn’t think my boobs would randomly grow this late. On top of all that, I’ve been experiencing a handful of other Radom symptoms. My weight has been going up and down, my appetite is irregular (either I’m hungry 24/7, or not hungry and nauseus at the thought of food.), up and down sex drive, a weird feeling (sharp & painful every now and then) during sex, frequent headaches, bloating, mood swings (major), my depression has gotten worst, and in this last 4 days I’ve had a vast amount of milky-thick white/creamy doscharge. It’s not a yeast infection because I don’t itch and it doesn’t smell like one. And it randomly started happening when my boyfriend and I had sex the other day. I’ve decided to just refrain from sex for the time being, but what could this all mean…..I took a pregnancy test when the brown blood started and it said negetive, but I haven’t taken one since and should be expecting my period around the 2nd of February. What should I do…

  • Ariel January 24, 2016, 6:48 pm

    Hi I had twins 16wks ago but for the last 9wks I have had unprotected sex. I have now noticed I’m bleeding it started as a brownish colour but now is red but not flowing like a period when I wipe. Could this still be implantation bleeding or a period as there is no smell, pain or clots?

  • Annie wright January 23, 2016, 12:01 pm

    Hi. Me and my boyfriend have been trying to have baby. He was back for two weeks on leave as he is in the army. I had a period three days while he was back. He came back December 19 and left January second we tried everyday about three times a day to have a baby. My period was three days late than my last one but my periods are very un regular.

I took two pregnancy test the day my period should have started they both came up negative I started what I thought was my period it was bright red for a day then turned to a pinkish brownish yesterday and has pretty much completely stopped today. I don’t know what to do. Any help or information would be great.

  • Michelle January 22, 2016, 7:40 pm

    Hi every one,
    I started my period on January 17 and ended on January 21. It was light, normally on the first day it fills up the whole pad, sorry tmi. But this time it wasn’t heavy. It was bright red with really bad cramps the first two days also with some blood clots. Then it turned pink, and brown towards the end. We aren’t really trying, but we aren’t using protection either. Could this be implantation bleeding or just a normal period??

  • Peanut butter Cups January 21, 2016, 6:54 am

    I normally have heavy bleeding with every period especially since I have a fibroid on my cervix but just recently I have had some strange bleeding. My blood is not heavy it’s very light pink a little mucus n only when I wipe. It’s keeps coming on n off since Sunday and today is Thursday the only thing is that it’s not enough for a pad n it doesn’t last the whole entire day only like when I’m getting off work it will start. Please someone help me it’s really making me frustrated. Sorry for tmi.

  • Tay January 18, 2016, 9:44 am

    Okay, I had the nexplanon implant for about 8 months. It wasn’t for me, my body was pretty much rejecting it. Severe headaches daily and 30lbs later I decided it was time to get it out. I didn’t get on another form of bc because I wanted to try and lose some of the unwanted weight. AF returned immediately and my cycles were just as normal as before I’d gotten the implant. AF came in November & 28 days later (Dec.7th) AF came again. I’m now 42 days into my cycle, this week I spotted slightly. It was like a mucus blood, wasn’t dark red like normal. More of a pinkish-brown color. No cramps when I usually have severe cramps, I know it wasn’t my period. I have taken 6 hpts all negative except for a couple I could see the faint line but I’ve taken some since yet still negative. I’m having other symptoms fatigue, some light headedness, a little nauseated at certain things but not a lot. My breast are different, I know it’s not a sign of “early pregnancy” but they have a milky discharge when squeezed. (I know, I’m crazy for doing that but it’s weird. Never had that happen before). I just feel pregnant I guess. A little more emotional than usual, I noticed that around Jan 7th and I thought I was getting my period. Around the same days I had a crampy feeling in my abdomen, wasn’t like my usual cramps but my lower back was achy too (my uterus is slightly tilted) so I assumed it was AF but when she didn’t show up I got a little worried. Now it’s just I’d really like to know what’s the matter with me if I’m not pregnant because I’m usually healthy. I’ve had thyroid test done about 2mos ago when I was at the doctor and everything was fine. Anyone had anything similar ?

    Hello. I am 31 years old. I went of elinest low dose BC on December 12, 2015, finishing my active pills and ditched the pack. It was making me very sore with swollen legs and headaches. The 18th, I had a super light 3 days of bleeding, not enough to even wear a pad. Then I assumed I was ovulating, because I had a ton of gooey, stretchy, clear mucus, sometime around New Year’s Eve and had unprotected sex with my boyfriend from December 31st- January 3rd. On January 2nd, after finishing intercourse, I went to the bathroom and had a brown and pinkish blood streak as I wiped myself, but nothing after that. The next day I had very sore breasts and they still hurt now. I have been having very vivid, lengthy dreams for over a week straight and I hardly ever dream. I’ve had a strange bubbling feeling in the area directly under where my c section scar is from my last two pregnancies, a week ago for two days and then on and off again for the last two days. And for about five days I have been urinating twice as much as I usually do. No cramps, and I am two days late for my period. Took a HPT yesterday and it was NEGATIVE. This morning I had very light amount of blood with a ton of clear mucus in it. I’m not sure if I’m menstruating, pregnant or its side effects of discontinuing BC. I had been on BC for a little over a year and had normal periods before. Lost…..Thank you for listening!

    hi! my period is due in about 5 days. but yesterday i had a pinkish and brownish spotting. then it stopped, but later last night when i woke up to pee, a bright red blood came out too. then it stopped for a while but this morning it came out again like a period. im experiencing just a very slight cramping. could it be iplantation bleeding or could it be my period already? I mean yesterday it was really pink and brownish, then this morning its like the red period blood. im confused. my cycle is usually 30-35. help! thanks!

  • Awele Iloh January 11, 2016, 11:46 am

    My wife sees her period every 28days.However she missed it last week but had a heavy flow of light blood on the 34th day,and it lasted just that day.Is this implantation bleeding?.However 4 days later,she did a serum b-Hcg and it was positive.I want to be sure if what she experienced was implantation bleeding or any sinister thing like miscarriage or molar pregnancy?.Secondly,how long after a miscarriage does b-Hcg test becomes negative?

  • Shantell January 10, 2016, 11:43 pm

    My period spotted on the first day (brown in color) came on lightly on the second day and was gone by the fourth day. It normally lasts for six days. Am I pregnant?

  • Miraculous16 January 9, 2016, 12:58 pm

    I know I’ve gone crazy! My cycles have always been out of whwfk. At one point I could go months without one and then they’re normal every 28 days. The past five months have been stressful as I lost a loved one so I lost a lot of weight quickly which I know can affect cycles. However I’ve been at a steady weight for the past few months and my cycle still hasn’t regulated. My last regular cycle was in the beginning of August 2015 the same month before the tragedy. Because of the stress my cycle didn’t return til then end of September. My cycle came a week late in October, I skipped November, and my last cycle was December 8th. I had sex with my mate December 16th. Its January a week after my birthday and I was hoping that my cycle would return back to normal and was expecting it to arrive and I thought it had on Thursday. My first morning urine when I wiped it looked as if it was getting ready to be the beginning of my cycle. I even had a tiny clot on the paper so I just knew it was getting to come down. The second time i went to the bathroom when I wiped the color had lightened. Hmm, but no cramps so what’s going on. By the third bathroom trip the blood is completely gone O.o. I took a pregnancy test early in the week and of course it came back negative or else I wouldn’t be leaving this ridiculously long comment lol. So is this breakthrough bleeding where my cycle thought about it but the possibility of being pregnant stopped it? I haven’t had any more bleeding and I don’t feel like its coming either. Ughhh I’m so scared to take another test. Just trying to wait and let nature do its thing. I’m so confused.

  • Karen January 8, 2016, 2:51 am

    So the last week of December,2015 I have been spotting for a week light blood and on January 2016 I bleed like 4 days and idk if it was my cycle but it started early this month and my cycle wasn’t normal at all. Now I have sore and sensitive breast. I don’t know if I should take a pregnancy l test or should I just wait till next month if I start my regular cycle. Please I need help ASAP!! I don’t know what to do.

    • Hailey smith January 9, 2016, 12:58 pm

  • Jennifer January 5, 2016, 10:13 am

    I was 6 days late for my period per calander took 3 HPT and all were negative. I then started my period with spotting no clots that lasted two days. I had on and off cramps which is n0t normal for me. When i felt like i was going to start i used a tampon, i never bleed though which i usually do. This period has been super weird! Should i test again or just assume that was my period and move on?

  • Christina January 5, 2016, 5:35 am

  • Tobie Ann December 30, 2015, 10:38 pm

    Hey! So my periods are irregular. I normally have one every other month. So for example I’ll have one in January and won’t have one till March. Well this just started yesterday 12/29/15 I woke up to use the restroom and I seen dark red blood. So as normal I thought I was on my period. Well today 12/30/15 this morning same thing happened but only this time it was lighter. Now a reminder that this has only happened once all day on both days and that was in the morning. Having vaginal bleeding once a day??? Not sure if that would be consider implementation bleeding or me sounding crazy!!!

  • skye December 28, 2015, 12:52 pm

    Hi. I’m on the depo provera shot for birth control. and my periods can be often irregular. Since I’ve been on it they have been lasting 7-8 days on and off with spotting. But on November 21 i had a fairly solid period and it lasted 5-6 days. The two weeks later on December 5 i started bleeding again. It lasted 3-4 days and it was light and on and off. Could that have been implantation bleeding?

  • Puiche December 28, 2015, 8:02 am

    My partner and I are trying to conceive. On the 13-12-15 I had very light on off bleeding and it was pink, brown and that lasted a day. I was meant to get my period on the 15-12-15 but didn’t. And now on the 22-12-15 I experienced a lot of blood. To the point of feeling like I peed myself? What is happening?

  • kara December 21, 2015, 6:39 pm

    So I’m 31 and my periods have always been normal. Never irregular. My husband and I have been trying to conceive. Well my period hasn’t come in 4 days keep in mind it’s never late. I’ve had all the pregnancy symptoms. I took two home tests and they both came up negetive however with my son the test came up negetive until I had the blood test done. Anyways we had sex yesterday and then I had some harsh cramping no blood. We had sex a few hours later and I was spotting bright red with bad cramps. So now I’m spotting and stopping for 1.5 days. The blood is bright red and there is no clots. It isn’t like my normal period…

  • okeowo eliza December 20, 2015, 10:42 pm

    No blood during my 1st to third day of my cycle, but on last day morning I noticed some light bleeding through my viginal.. What happen?

  • Sophia December 19, 2015, 9:07 pm

    Hello, I really need your help. My periods usually last up to 5 days max. Last month, it lasted up to 6 – 7 days. Tonight is day 6, which would be my second month of having this. I am scared because of I don’t loose this by tomorrow, what could it be? I do have sex, with and without condoms and am not on birth control, but we are always careful. Could this be signs of pregnancy? Or just a long period. Could sex cause it to become longer? Please give me some information on this because I don’t want to freak out if I don’t have to. Thank you

  • Kera December 16, 2015, 12:52 pm

    Hi. I’m 24 and I just got married to my husband last month, but we’ve been together for over six years. In that time frame I was on birth control up until a year and a half ago. Last night at around 8:30 p.m. I got up to

    • Kera December 16, 2015, 1:24 pm

      Something just happened with the webpage and it sumbitted before I was finished… Anyhow… Hi. I’m 24 and I just got married to my husband last month, but we’ve been together for over six years. In that time frame I was on birth control up until a year and a half ago. I decided to change pills because it was causing me to retain a lot water, then the next pill was drying me up below, so I decide that until I found a contraceptive that would work for me I would get off the pill and give my body a rest. We instead began using condoms again, but after a while we stopped, not fearing the risk of pregnancy, just thinking “If it happens, then it does.” Last night at around 8:30 p.m. I got up to use the bathroom. While I was urinating, I smelled the telltale metallic and thought, “Oh, so you’ve made an appearance,” but when I looked down at my panties there wasn’t any blood. When I wiped, blood coated the piece of tissue. No pink, straight up red and heavy and I even noticed some tissue that I assumed was from my cervix. I assumed that my period was starting early and put on a pad and went to bed.

      This morning when I woke up I made a trip to the bathroom, and when I looked at the pad I put on last night it was not coated in blood like I thought it would be, instead the very little blood that was there was dried up and brown. Wiping produced the same little bit of brown and then nothing at all. Last week on 12.10.15, a friend of mine noticed that I was letting the most insignificant things people said to me get to me asked me if I was pregnant. I told her that I didn’t think so, but if I was it would explain those two days (12.09.15 and 12.10.15) in which my emotions were suddenly out of whack and I was tired a lot. I chalked it up to stress on the job.

      Did I have a miscarriage? I think I might have, but I can’t be sure since when my friend mentioned pregnancy, I did not take a home pregnancy test. I figured that if I was pregnant, my appetite would increase and I wouldn’t feel like doing anything but sleeping, and since I hadn’t started eating more and my emotional state was back to normal, however, I was still fatigued (but I still chalked it up to stress at work) then I wasn’t. Plus, now isn’t exactly a bad time for the possibility of being pregnant. I figured the only way to get an answer about what happened to me last night would be to ask.

      • mel December 19, 2015, 7:48 pm

        It doesn’t really sound like a miscarriage, and it may take a while for some of those other symptoms (appetite changes and exhaustion) to show up. At this point it’s been a solid week since *possible* implantation, so if I were you I would definitely just take a home test. Knowing one way or another is definitely better than guessing, and at this point, if you ARE pregnant, your hcG levels should be high enough that even a cheap (there are some for $1 at WalMart) pregnancy test should give you a positive result. Good luck!

    I’ve always had a fairly regular cycle between 28and 32 days lasting 4-5 days at the longest. My husband and I have been TTC for 15 months. This month my period was about 7 days late if it were to start on the 32nd day. I have taken several pregnancy test that have all showed negative. This period has me so confused because it I’ve had very very light flow with dark brown blood no clots but a very small amount of pink blood for about five days. I thought my cycle had ended so my husband and I had sex tonight and when we were finished there was bright red blood. I’ve had one cramp with this whole ordeal and no symptoms that I am used to having. Any suggestions will be helpful !!! Thanks in advance

  • Kemi November 27, 2015, 7:23 pm

    Hello, I’m hoping someone has had a similar experience to mine. I have a very regular cycle, always spot on time. this month my period was two days late and when it did arrive it was so light, i usually have a 2 day heavy bleed tailing off over day 3 and 4. This time hardly able to fill a bad on any of the days. I took a pregnancy test on the day my period was due but was negative and another on the 3rd day when I was spotting but again negative. Could this be implantation bleeding and if so how long should I wait to test again? thanks in advance for your help

  • katina bittler November 27, 2015, 4:49 pm

    Hi my name is Katina and I am in my 40’s. I do have a question and am hoping to find an answer from someone. I have had two healthy pregnancy in my 20’s and lately things have change. As a child I have had normal periods but lately they are not every 28 days apart. Lately they have been 25 and some 20. I am not sexually active even though the last time I had sex was around October of this year. In November I started 11 days ago. Starts off lightly, then heavy for about two days and then lightly again for a few days. It lasted about a week and I thought I was done. Monday was my last day until yesterday which is Thanksgiving Day. What could this mean.

  • Nancy November 25, 2015, 6:15 am

    Hello everyone,
    I hope that someone can help me with this? I had a my period on the 5th of Nov. it lasted the usual 4 days, than exactly two weeks later, on the 16th I experienced minor bleeding when I wiped, it was very pinkish it lasted for a few hours and than it went away, I thought it was my period. I looked at my calendar and since I’m trying to conceive I thought it was very strange that my period was super early. Than the spotting went away, I saw it again the next day same as the first. Than it was gone. But I did have my menstrul two weeks prior to my Nov. period because it was suppose to come the 5th of Oct but it was late 2 weeks because I was stressing whether I was pregnant or not. I just took a pregnancy test and shot out pregnant but with the one line a lot more darker than the other one, you can see both but the second one isn’t clear enough like the first. I’m worried, could I be pregnant? Or not?

    • Random Person November 27, 2015, 12:32 pm

      Sounds very similar to experience I had last year. I had my period at the end of the month, and then two weeks later I started to experience light bleeding/spotting. I went to the doctor’s and they tested my blood, which confirmed I had in fact been pregnant and that I had a miscarriage and not my period. You may want to see your OBGYN if you are concerned.

    • Heather December 9, 2015, 12:29 pm

      Yes, most likely you are..they say that if you see both lines even if one is lighter than the other you are pregnant…happened that way for me when I was pregnant with my boy

  • Lolo November 22, 2015, 10:08 am

    Hi! I’m not so sure if mine is an implantation bleeding or period. Coz the flow is light, the pattern is on and off but i saw a clot. My left nipple is also tingly and sensitive. Could this be an implantation bleeding? Could I be pregnant? I would appreciate your reply. Thanks!

    • mrs. r November 28, 2015, 6:21 am

      I’ve had almost the same experience. I am trying to conceive and have had what looks like is supposed to be a period but it came a week early. And it was heavy and there were clots but it only lasted two days. So you or I may have had a miscarriage I am assuming from the information that I’ve gotten from this article. I hope I’m wrong tho. I’m scared.

  • Lindsey October 31, 2015, 10:19 am

    Monday at 12:00 am i started what i thought was my period. We went home for the weekend and when we got back i had brown blood in my pants. I continued to bleed for the rest of monday but it was lighter than any other period i jave ever had before not even enough to really wear a pad only really when i wipe but a little on the pad. Tuesday afternoon it stopped. Wednesday ig was still gone and Thursday i began to spot again this time was lighter than than monday and Tuesday no oad needed on Thursday. Could i have taken a test and it came back negative. But i wasn’t supposed to start my period until today Saturday.

  • Jeet Mann October 24, 2015, 10:57 pm

    I am having hard time always, I want to be a mother from long time. But I do not think that I am that lucky. My periods are never regular they vary 21 to 35 days some time. I am going to be 31 end of this January. I am very tensed. We are trying to conceive from almost 9 months. 2 to 3 times every month I get cramps in lower abdomen. I got periods on 8th July, 28th July, 8th September. and now I was waiting again on 8th October but I did not get it. On 7th Oct I got pink wipe outs after pee. then nothing on next day. I thought may be I will get periods on 18th of Oct. I had bad cramps sometime in those days. After 15th Oct I started to feel too much tired and zero level of energy, I am not even able to stand up for long time. I had 2 home pregnancy test but those came as negative. On 22 Oct I again got pink spots and red water spots 2 times. we had sex but not too hard. Now today on 24th Oct I got red blood but it is not heavy not even regular. But still I feel heavy lower abdomen. I am really confused. What do I do I do not understand. Please if any one can help me.

  • Rita October 21, 2015, 11:54 am

    Hello- 5 days before my period I started getting mild cramps much like my period. I had them for 2 days but my period never came which is unlike my usual pms. We are trying and did have sex on my ovulation week. It’s now 2-3 days before my period and I’m going crazy to find out. I also have sore breasts but that also happens with pms. Could I be pregnant or could I have hormonal issues ?

  • Kristy October 16, 2015, 9:51 am

    We are trying for a baby. My period was do on the 13 of October, and I’m very regular, I mean I know the date and around what time. Well I didn’t have my period so we assumed that we were pregnant, but today I started, I think. I have no cramping at all but I can’t tell if it’s a period or implant bleeding.

  • vivien October 16, 2015, 7:24 am

    When should i start to count my due date, is it the first day of my last menstrual date or the implantation date. Please help me because am confused – my last period started on the 12th of September 2015 and i noticed the implantation bleeding on the 12th of October 2015 and is only 2 dots.


  • Gil October 15, 2015, 2:26 pm

    My period is due today and day before I saw very light blood. Today on the actual day it was scheduled to come, still light pink on pad and when i wipe and red streaks of blood (not heavy as it usually is). I felt a sharp pain last night but it went away. Then yesterday and today I saw a little (looked like lining) come out when I urinated. I took a pregnancy test last Saturday but negative. I had miscarriage Nov. 2014 so I am not sure what is going on but I pray my God blesses me with a healthy beautiful baby that will serve Him. Please advise about the abnormal bleeding pattern. My period usually comes on time each month even after miscarriage and my body got back on track, but the flow is usually heavy.I was said to have fibroids (one in uterus cavity-1mm) and others very small as well of about 5 but taking scudders, breastgard estro flush and other things to help shrink fibroids naturally and balance my hormones.

  • Lola October 14, 2015, 8:44 am

    My last period was on the 15 Sep, on the 28 Sep i had a brownish flow and the next day a pinkish flow. My period has not arrived as yet but from your article it seems to have been implantation? Is it or not, my husband and I are really trying to have a baby and every month it is such a dissapointment. Could i be pregnant or not? Please help.

  • Angel October 13, 2015, 4:14 pm

    I been on depo since September 1 and i just started to hurt on my lower part of my stomach and been spotting for about 3 1/2 days and now i think i just came on my period but im not sure though.. I don’t know if its depo or something wrong with my body.. Help

  • Krystine October 9, 2015, 2:43 pm

    Last month, my period seemed like it was late (but did not keep track). So, I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. A Couple days later, I had what I thought was a one day period. It was very light bleeding but normal in color. It seemed weird to me but I didn’t think too much about it until I was not feeling well and feeling tired this month around the time my period was due. So, I took the other pregnancy test and it was positive. So, now I don’t know if I am 4 weeks or 8 weeks pregnant. What do you think?

  • Charlotte September 25, 2015, 2:08 pm

    I have a 7 month old that I’m nursing and haven’t had a period since right after having him. Since, I’m not having a missed period, how do I know if it’s implantation bleeding or my cycle starting back up and when should I take a pregnancy test? I started having brown bleeding a day ago and took a test, but it was negative. Just not sure how to gauge when is still too early to test.

  • floretta batiste September 22, 2015, 2:29 pm

    hello I was wondering if your period came on the 30th of aug an then on sept 21 you go to the batroom to urine an you wipe you an its light red to pink ,then you go back to urine again about to hour later an it brown then after hours its nothing ,then the next day its brown again what could that be

  • Patrys September 20, 2015, 10:55 pm

    Good morning.

    Trust you are well. My period started about 3 days after the 28 day period. On Friday eve, not heavy. Saturday and Sunday it stopped. Again it started late Sunday eve. Almost like normal period? I did a home test this morn and it shows no second line as to the one I took 4aturday morn. I saw a light pink line? Could I be pregnant? Something else wrong?

    Many thanks and have a lovely day.

    Kind regards

    I am 39 & am experiencing some pinkish bleeding. It is the 28th of August & started the pinkish bleeding on the 26. Came home from work with a really bad headache on the 26th also. Then on the 27th I had a little redish & brown color, just a little. Then today I am spotting a little pinkish color with some cramping with a slight luring headache. I normaly have heavy bleeding my first day of period & bleed heavy for 3 to4 days then taper off the last 2 to 3 days. We have wanted to be pregnate for the past 12 years. Could this be our prayers answered. I’m not schedule to come on my period until the first week of next month (September). O & also on the 26th around 6am I got really sick to my stomach an vomited. Then I felt better after. On the 27th my stomach hurt almost all day. What I am asking is should I take a trip to the store an get that test.

  • netta August 14, 2015, 8:37 am

    Ok so I have been spio for four days now. Nome of the blood is in my panty liner. Only when I wipe that’s it. I usually spot 2 days before my period. But this is so different to me. My period isn’t due until Monday or Tuesday and it’s gonna be like I’ve been spotting for a week. Am I pregnant or is that my period coming? Help me please.

  • Shelly August 14, 2015, 5:01 am

    It is a baby, but just some lump of cells. It if life, a gift from God. Renaming it will not change the fact that in 9 months a baby, not a lump of cells, not a wad of tissue, but a baby will be born. God bless, and good luck to all those trying to conceive LIFE

    • Anon October 11, 2015, 12:37 pm

      Come off your high horse – until it’s born it’s part of the woman’s body and it’s her choice.

    • Anastasia October 14, 2015, 11:57 am

      Hi Shelly,
      I definitely understand and share your point of view. I believe that a fertilized implanted egg is a life. I had strong negative feelings about other women who had considered and/or gone through with an abortion. When I found out I was pregnant with my 2nd child (after “beating” cancer and being told that I would never have any more children). The babies’ dad was sent to prison on a parole violation (I was young and dumb, and believed that if I supported him enough, he would change). I also found out that the cancer was back, and in stage 3. The Dr wanted me to abort the baby so he could go through with more testing and come up with treatment options. He told me at this point, if I aborted the baby to have treatment, I had a 33% chance of living; but that if I carry the baby, that percentage will decline. I lost my job. I was already a single mom.
      I found myself crying myself to sleep at night, contemplating abortion.
      I thought I had made my mind up, and I was going to have an abortion. My aunt and uncle had been praying for a baby for 26 years. They were in their upper forties, and lower fifties. At the last minute, because I could not accept my decision, I reached out to them. They were so happy, they cried. I carried the baby full term, they took her home from the hospital. She was/is perfectly healthy, and beautiful. They named her Faith. They offered an open adoption. She knows me.

      After my experience, and knowing that faced with the same stress and struggles, I almost made the choice that I am against, don’t agree with, or believe in. Because of that I am pro life, but I do not harbor any bad feelings, nor do I pass even so much as a fragment of judgment on any woman for her pro choice decision that I do not feel the same way about.

  • Hayley August 12, 2015, 8:45 am

    My periods have been all over the place lately so I’m not sure how this works. I’ve been spotting lately mainly in a morning but it’s frequent spotting it can last a few days stop then start again it’s a brownish colour. I’ve also been feeling very tired lately and keep getting bad headaches my boobs are tender to touch as well. It done a home pregnancy test but it’s negative. Do you know why I could be experimenting these symptoms? I look forward to a reply thanks

  • kiki August 11, 2015, 1:20 pm

    I got my period two days late I was bleeding normal the first day normal red color and all but the two days following that it was off and on and spotty and went from brown to light pink back to some brown spotting then back to light pink off and on. My cycle is normally 28 days and normally lasts 4 days but its the fourth day and I haven’t had any bleeding since last night. Also when I first started I didn’t have any cramping which I normally get right before my period my breasts also get sore and they did but that’s the only symptom I have. What does this mean? My periods are usually the same every month along with my symptoms. This month is off and I just FEEL like theres something not right. Idk maybe its just me but I cant shake the feeling. Please any advice will help. Sorry if tmi and thank you in advance.

    I have taken 3 pregnancy tests and all were negative I am now over a week late for my period and have had the spotting I am constantly tired and have been having crazy mood swings. Do I just keep taking pregnancy tests. The doctor wont get a positive If I am not. I don’t want to waste the money of going but this is driving me insane.

    • Charlotte October 25, 2015, 2:45 pm

      Hi Sammi. Did you ever get a reply? I’m in the same situation you were here, right now.

  • Carey August 3, 2015, 11:15 pm

    My period cycle normally 25-26 days, it has been regular for the past 4 months. Last month June 2015, I had clomid pill given by the Doctor on my period day 2-5 and I had more eggs scanned on day 10. I had unprotected sex on day 13-15 then i was waiting for the result happily. Just a week before my period due, I had sore boobs and cramp, the nipple extremely pain. I thought it may be my period is coming soon. When my period due on day 26, i had spotting for continuous 3 days and only used panty liner but the color sometimes in black red and some with small blood clots. I wonder i may get pregnant and i test it on day 30 and day 32 but it’s negative. In this case, do you think I get pregnant or ectopic pregnancy? I’m a bit worried as I don’t have full flow of period and I had breast tenderness and cramp still.

  • kaite August 3, 2015, 9:55 am

    Hi…ok so I started my period on the 21st expected on the 23rd so 2. Days early lasted 7 days like normal an it left I had intercourse on the 28th and the 30th. Then after intercourse I started bleeding again but alot lighter. Should I test? Am I pregnant or what?

    • lucy August 10, 2015, 6:39 pm

      Jess most likely your not pregnant…but you can never be 100 percent sure until ur peroid comes..so only test if your period doesnt come usually you can get pregnant 14 days after your period so for you would count from the 21 since thats when u started..n if you bleed after intercourse it might have been that u did it too hard.

  • kim July 30, 2015, 11:55 pm

  • Alicia July 21, 2015, 3:09 pm

    I experienced some light spotting this morning. It only lasted about an hour or two and was gone. It was a dark brownish red color [im assuming old blood]. AF is suppose to start tomorrow and I’ve been testing the past few days and only getting BFN. Could the spotting be implantation? Is it still possible for me to get a BFP? I’ve been having a few symptoms for a week now; extreme fatigue & nausea [not vomiting], cramping, more thirsty, more trips to the bathroom and I just feel off. Any ideas?

  • Kim July 20, 2015, 5:30 pm

    Hi, my period usually starts in the afternoon, this time it started early in the morning, can this be an indicator that it’s implantation bleeding rather than a period? My cycle is very irregular so no indicators there for me. I’m still breastfeeding a toddler so breast changes aren’t overly noticeable for me, although my nipples always start to hurt during ovulation and usually stop after a few days, they have kept hurting this time though. Very confusing, particularly since I have a short luteal cycle most of the time. Anyway curious to know what you think.

  • Megan July 19, 2015, 12:10 am

    I’ve been spotting for 9 days already and it started out as light bleeding that was light pink with very tiny clots that started around day 2 of the 9 day spotting stretch and then on day 8 the spotting completely stopped that night and then when I woke up in the morning to use the bathroom on day 9 I was spotting pinkish/brownish blood when I wiped. I took a test later the after noon with a cheap amazon pregnancy test and got a BFP. I’m about 5 weeks along. I say if you even suspect pregnancy and things seem a bit off test. Hope that helps.

  • peaceout July 18, 2015, 11:46 pm

    My question is why am I having blood clot and light spots? I’m a virgin and not on my period. I still have half a month to my next period. Today I noticed blood spots on the toilet paper and blood clot in the toilet. It was not every time I went to bathroom, but more than a couple of times. I’m a very hygienic person especially when it comes to my vagina. I did kinda felt discomfort and dryness last couple days but not itchy or anything like that. I should be still too young (20s) for menopause. What is it? should I be worried? Little scared after seeing the clots.

I get small/medium cramps everyday and I took a pregnancy test the other day and was negative. What should I do? Should I take another test in couple days after my normal period start date?

  • Tracy July 8, 2015, 11:09 am

    I came off BC mid-April and my body has been trying to regulate the past few months. However, this morning I was experiencing some serious gas and bloating that I’ve never really had before. So I did some research on that and it led me to some articles like this one on implantation bleeding. My period came earlier than expected last month and I actually just spotted the entire time. I figured this was my body adjusting to being off the pill. After reading all of the articles online about IB, I’m wondering if that is in fact what I was experiencing instead of a period. My next period- assuming I run on a 28 day cycle- is due July 17. Should I wait until I miss my next period or go ahead and test now? My main concern is that I am on some medications that I would definitely need to come off of if I was in fact pregnant. If it wasn’t for that, I would probably just wait it out for the next week and 1/2. Although I’m sure it would be hard! Thanks so much!

  • Christina Adjei July 7, 2015, 7:19 am

    Ok im 3 montths postpartum exactly.exclusively breastfeeding.no period yet.we had sex with pullout somewhere around 2nd week of june,dont remember exact date.now on 13th and 14th june i had severe lower back ache so i thought i’ll have my 1st pp period which is usually heavy.on 15th i started with dark brown discharge,so thought this is start of pp period.but tht discharge only lasted that day,nvr turned into a proper flow,next two days just one or two spots of light brown cm.i suspected pregnancy,so am testing since last monday till yesterday,clear negatives only 2 tests out of 10 tests had very very faint barely visible positive lines last weekend.pregnancy symptoms are there,though not very pronounced like my other two pregnancies,like dizziness,mild headaches,pulsating lower backache,body cramps,faint metallic smell and taste

    • Shawnna July 12, 2015, 3:23 pm

      You probably just tested too early initially and the first few tests couldn’t read the HCG in your urine, as it can take some time to build up enough to be detectable. I’ve worked OB and any line, no matter how faint, is a positive test. I’d schedule an appointment with your provider.

  • hazel June 29, 2015, 2:55 pm

    I found out i have endometriosis a few months ago. I had surgery to remove the cysts and my Dr advised this is the best time to concieve. My periods now are 34 days apart, with the normal signs; cramps (which are now not as bad), and light bleeding followed by heavy bleeding for2-3 day and light bleeding for 1-2 days. The start of last month I was taking a suppressent to help stop the endometriosis as we wanted to wait. I had major problems with it so I went off of it and got my period again less than a week later. A week before my expected period we had unprotected sex. I am now 8 days late and have been having brown and a little pink discharge over those days. Some day’s I’ll have it and others not. It ts only there when I wipe and than nothing. I’m having minor cramps, that’s why Ithink iI m getting my period, but no flow. This has never happened. I took a hpt 3 days ago and neg. I took one today and neg. Its been 13 days since unprotected sex. Could I be getting false negs at this point. I was also very dizzy last week and nauseas. Today watermelon made me almost vomit. Could I be pregnant?

  • Lia June 21, 2015, 4:04 pm

    I have been o the ill for 4 moths and prior to that i was on the depo for 7 years, ive been with my partner for 6. We have always had unprotected sex because i am alergic to latex. I havent had a period for nearly 8 years, and 2 days ago i got really bad cramps & yesterday i started bleeding, but it was only for a little bit, i dont take my yellow tablets, only the white ones. The bleeding was a little red, not clotty or anything, and now i just have some light brown spots. Could i be pregnant?? Ive taken a HPT but it was negative, how long should i wait, because i dont know when my period would normally come because i havent had one for so long. Help please :)

  • Vickie June 20, 2015, 6:11 pm

    I am bleeding not a normal period I feel like I might have this implantation bleeding. I haven’t bled this long for a period. Please help me I haven’t taken a hot yet

  • Laura June 19, 2015, 9:38 pm

    My period is crazy this days it has been coming on and off like yesterday it only came for a bit and stopped completely then right it’s the same bright red and then it stops again completely but when I wipe I see light link on it and at times a bright red like its fresh what can this mean? I really could use some advice since my youngest is already 10yrs. Ad I’m feeling very confused wether it can be pregnancy or something else.

  • Mommyof1Maybe2 June 19, 2015, 1:21 pm

    My last full menstrual cycle was around the 24th of April, and in May around the 28th I had spotting for two days or so. Don’t remember the color, but I was confused. Thought my body was just being weird. Now more then half of June has passed and I’m starting to feel tired at work and feeling winded very quickly. Yesterday I threw up top ramen five mins after I ate it. Reminded me of when I was pregnant with my son…. I think I’m pregnant but not sure. Any thoughts??? Btw I took a HPT bought from DollarTree a week and a half ago it was negative.

  • brownjacket07 June 18, 2015, 6:21 pm

    Hi. I normally have regular periods. This month i spotted brown the entire week before my period and my period started as scheduled but it was scanty and on day 2 it got very heavy. At the end of day 3 it went scanty again. I spotted as though it was ending and now im getting light red when i wipe after using the toilet. I normally have horrible cramps and this time i had absolutely none. It’s weird. Pregnancy test came back negative but i did have sex around my ovulation time. Any feedback will be appreciated!

  • Angel June 15, 2015, 3:49 pm

  • Kimberley Walch June 12, 2015, 4:17 am

    Hello, I had a miscarriage in April…started bleeding on the 10/04 ended 18/4. Last period was 6/3. In May I had a 2 day period (very light) started 14/5 ended 15/5. Had no period since. Today is day 28. Normally I come on around 24 days. Is this normal after a miscarriage. Normally my periods are very regulary and heavish. Last week and week before my breasts were extremely tender, they are still sensitive but not like they were! I am also extremley tired (this is unusual)! I did a home pregnancy test last week and negative. Thank you

    • Danielle June 24, 2015, 8:18 pm

      Hi Kimberley,
      Sorry for you loss. I also had a miscarriage(late) in april at 20 weeks. I had one last July as well (at 9 weeks). From my own experience yes miscarriages totally mess up your cycle, especially the first few. My 1st trimester miscarriage my next few cycles were soo long and soo heavy. After this most recent miscarriage the second trimester one, my periods have been super short and super light. It can be just bodies getting back to normal, or implantation…unfortunately only time will tell! GOOD LUCK!

  • nicole June 11, 2015, 9:09 am

    so last Saturday(6/6) my bf and i had sex, we ALWAYS use condoms. while having sex i started to bleed and i thought it was my period (early) as it was due in 2 days. the bleeding stopped for 2 days and now i just had a weird brown discharge that comes and goes.. my breasts are super sore and full to the point it hurts to have a bra on. i never really get PMS symptoms so i’m starting to worry. this ever happen to anyone and they ended up pregnant??

    • Paige June 18, 2015, 3:44 pm

      Hi! Your symptoms are saying you are most likely pregnant. Your brown discharge is mostly known as implantation bleeding. It lasts about 1-2 days. And your breasts are also a symptom of pregnancy since they are sore. Contact me if you have any questions

  • Maria June 9, 2015, 10:56 pm

    i am 23 years old. my period has been normal recently unlike before. now, i have been sexually active and 7 days has passed and i still didnt get my period. i keep track through a calendar. on the eighth day, i noticed some tinges of blood on my panties and me and my boyfriend though i was pregnant. but then when we had sex, the blood flow was heavy. and we though i wasnt pregnant so i started taking pills on that day when the flow was heavy. but after that day, the flow went very slow to nothing at all. could i be pregnant? or could this be just the effect of the pills as well? i am freaking out like what if i am pregnant and the pills might hurt the baby. i need help. :(

  • Alyssa June 9, 2015, 1:24 am

    Ok so I haven’t had my period and last time I was on it was May 11th. Me and my boyfriend had protected sex but it slipped off more than once. I’ve been having an extremely light period with spotting in between and my boobs hurt like crazy and are extremely heavy. I don’t know what this means could I be pregnant?

  • rachel June 8, 2015, 8:32 pm

    Hello….I usually get my period the 9th of every month this month on the 7th I’ve had really light bleeding twice and later that night it was dark but just a little the next time I checked that night I have not had any bleeding since and it’s the 8th now still no bleeding can my period still come tomorrow or does it sound like I’m finally pregnant

  • Tina June 6, 2015, 4:40 pm

    Just a thought… why don’t we all post the actual words spelled out (ex: DPO / Days Past Ovulation ) versus posting acronyms and assuming we are all Doctors, Nurses, Medical Staff here and know what your acronym means? You’d probably get a lof more feedback on your questions if you’d take a second to spell out what you mean to say. Sorry . I hate abbreviations or showoffs that use them. Carry on

  • Richa June 5, 2015, 1:48 am

    I am in a real fix. I had unprotunprotected sex last mnth during my ovulation period in a calculated way and i was expecting to get pregnant. I have noticed changes in my breast in last few days. My breasts n nipples have enlarged and my nipples were hurting badly last few days. My periods was due on 8th of this month. However, yesterday suddenly i had spotting from today i am having heavy flow, could you please help me understand if this is normal periods or can be implementation bleeding. Can i do a blood test to check pregnancy.

  • Holli June 4, 2015, 7:26 pm

    Hi, I’ve never posted on anything before so I’m not sure how this works , I’m in my early 30’s and have never had ” regular ” cycles, my cycles have been normal to me though , since they have been the same since I was 13. I always spot extremely light first day, bleed for one maybe two days, then done, its so little that I have never even worn a tampon. its physically impossible. I could litterly wear a pantiliner with no accidents. I get it evey month except one month about half way thru the year and that’s when my cycle switches from beginning of month to end of the month. I have been with the same guy for almost 8 yrs and we are very active, and never use protection because 10-12yrs ago he got a clip, he was not cut or burned just a clip of some sort I’m not to familiar with how reliable they are but I’m a little worried about being pregnant. both of us stopped drinking over 2 yrs ago, and I’m not sure if that has any importance in the situation. I can 100% say I have not had any cycle over 2 months. I actually honestly think its been 3 months but because I don’t cycle heavy and its always been the same. so I never write it down or count days… for the last two months near suspected cycle time I have been having some reddish brown discharge it lasts a couple of days and its only when I wipe. I am constantly gaging, I have to pee a million times a day and its like I’m gonna pee my pants if I don’t go right that minute. I’m constantly starving. but can only eat less than a third of normal amount cause I feel uncomfortable and like my food is just under my boobs. I’m extremely tired loose breath quick, along with a few other little things I have been getting so irritated by the littlest things. and all these things are not typical of me. can anyone help me with possible answers. thc

  • Edna W. May 31, 2015, 9:04 pm

    Hi I’m new here I have irregular periods and the past day or so I’ve been spotting and its been a brownish color I’ve never had it in not expected to see my period till about the sixth of June 2015 its only May 31st. And I don’t have any insurance for a doctors visit and I don’t quite know the ropes about my period as from not really ha having a mom in the pic growing up I never got taught any of this besides ill have one every month so I don’t know what I’m having right now can anyone please help?

  • Cheryl May 28, 2015, 12:33 pm

    Hi, I have a question and don’t want to get my hopes up, but also don’t know when to test. We are TTC, my OPK was positive the 13th of May, we were very active in the fertile window. Last day being the 14th. I consistently run a cycle of 25/26 days., lasting usually 3 days (strong start to flow then lighter flow for two days to spotting)I had just spotting on cycle day 26 when I wiped, cye day 27 was light pink/red in color and clot free flow, today back to spotting still no clotting. Do I bother testing and if so when, I dread having my hopes dashed.

  • jasmine May 27, 2015, 2:14 pm

    Hello! I was the birth control seasonique. I stopped taking it April 21st. I started my “period” April 25th. Ended April 30th. Had sex with my Hubby that night. May 1st,3rd and 5th. Spotted pinkish on the 6th. (Fertile period was May4th-May9) And had sex the 9th,12th, and 17th. Spotted brown the 19th.. Expected my period May 23rd and still no period or signs of it coming today(May27Th) I’ve taken 5 test and all are negative… I have nausea, peeing more then usual, appetite increase,headache, stuffy nose, cravings, feel bloated, gassy, my boobs itch and have a tingly sensation. I have way mild cramps(nothing like my horrible period cramps) and a pulling pinching feeling by my belly button… Along with a taste in my mouth like í had a penny or nickel in there. And a high sense of smell…can this be from coming off the pill or can í actually be pregnant?

    • Lola June 7, 2015, 7:34 pm

      Did you ever figure it out? This sounds similar to what I’m experiencing..

  • Shenika May 25, 2015, 12:34 am

    Hi I was expecting my period on May 22 and now it’s the 24th and still no period. Earlier today I was using the bathroom and when I wiped I saw bright red blood but I haven’t seen anything else and I’ve been cramping. What should I do now?

  • Iris May 21, 2015, 4:04 pm

    I have problems with implantation. My periods are very regular and I keep track of my ovulation so I know that my period is due 16 days after my ovulation. I’ve been trying to get pregnant for 2 years now and know I conceived a couple of times but I always have heavy implantation bleedings between 11 and 14 days after my ovulation. Once I managed to stay pregnant after 9 days of heavy bleeding. It was worse then a period and had lots of cloths. I got scans every two weeks and at 7 weeks I had a heartbeat. The 9 week scan however showed that the heart stopped at 7 weeks and two days and I was going to miscarry. the embryo was tested and all was fine. The doctors conclusion was that the placenta wasn’t good. I do think this has to do with the heavy implantation bleeding I had. Since then I had about 5 times more implantation bleedings but no pregnancy. Now I’m on day 11 after my ovulation and started to bleed heavy again. I have very little hope anymore that this will end in a healthy pregnancy and that I will hold my baby in my arms in 8 months time. It’s very difficult to convince a doctor that something keeps going wrong during implantation when you don’t have a positive pregnancy test to prove that you actually conceived.

    • Shenika May 25, 2015, 12:31 am

      I know it’s hard because I had an ectopic pregnancy two months ago but try to be positive even though it is extremely tough. I wish you the absolute best ☺️

  • sheeeeeera May 21, 2015, 11:21 am

However, the sunday that i was due my period I had very light bleeding thats brown! its not been red and its very light and no pain. Ive had on off brown discharge till now wednesday thats been with no pain. Am i pregnant or is this just a very light period?

  • Nicole May 13, 2015, 3:43 am


    My husband and I are trying to get pregnant. My 28 day cycle is always very regular. Around the time that I would expect to get my period I had some spotting and some light bleeding. However, I am now 20 days post ovulation and I’m still getting a negative result on a hpt. What could this mean? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    • Dana June 7, 2015, 10:01 pm

      Hello Nicole. Did you ever find out what was going on? I am feeling the same symptoms you are.

  • Rachita May 10, 2015, 3:35 pm

    I had sex on 15th of april it was protected sex also he took it out when he used to come. I usually have 7 day long period but this time the period was only 2 day long and also followed by very light bleeding and it happened for the first time. So was it implantation bleeding or normal periods?

  • Mary Yelverton May 8, 2015, 10:16 pm

    Hi is it normal to have a two day period when you are use to having a 7 to 8 day period sometimes longer

  • rachel May 6, 2015, 8:00 pm

    I understand the answer to this will be ‘take a test’ but just wanted to see if anyone else had these symptoms and what the outcome was…

    My last period was 29th March and lasted for the usual 5 days, light at first then heavy and back to light again on days 4-5.
    My partner and I have an active sex life (unprotected) so would have had sex during ovulation.
    I started to get cramp on 30th April and assumed it was my period starting, I had a light bleed on 1st April (used 1 pad for full day with no need to change) but come the 2nd it had stopped.
    I did notice a pink/watery substance when I was going to the toilet but nothing on underwear. That lasted about 2 days. I have had no bleed since but have felt some cramping but nothing like my usual menstrual cramp. So really my questions are ..
    Does this sound like implantation bleeding or just an irregular period?
    Can a period last for 1 day?

    On a side note (I am fully aware these are not symptoms) about a week before my period was due I kept thinking about being pregnant (out of the ordinary for me). Two members of my family have asked if I am pregnant on a ‘hunch’. My dog is being overly nice to me and aggressive to my partner. I keep getting earache. I am overly emotional but according to partner I am always like this so that is why I am not including this as a symptom. I have woke a few times during the night to go to the toilet and this is unlike me but it has not been every night and from what I have read online it would be far to early at this stage for this to happen so putting that down to it getting lighter outside earlier.
    Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated
    Many Thanks

  • Kassy C May 6, 2015, 3:36 pm

    I had my period on the 20th of April 2015 it lasted the usual 4 days. Now yesterday evening the 3rd of May 2015 I started seeing sign as if my period wants to come down again and my breast they are hurting like crazy. I don’t know what’s wrong.

  • Ashley May 3, 2015, 11:50 am

    I’m 21 years old. My fiancé and I never use any type of protection. My last period started March 31 2015. I’ve had an awful metal taste in my mouth for about 2 weeks now, I’ve been getting dizzy a lot, and even fainted on the bathroom floor. Last night I had brown mucus discharge when I wiped. I’m due for my period, so this morning when I saw blood I wasn’t surprised. But it was brown. It’s never been this color before. I only notice blood coming out when I go to the bathroom, other than that I’m still waiting for the flow to actually start. I’ve been up walking around for 5 hours and it’s still super light. Cramps are MUCH milder than usual as well. This is the first day I noticed my boobies are bigger and sore. Not one of my usual period symptoms. Last time I was pregnant I bled for a day thinking it was my period. Does it sound like I’m pregnant?

    • leah May 5, 2015, 2:22 pm

      sounds like you may be expecting

  • nicole April 30, 2015, 4:38 pm

I am 2 weeks late on my period, but i woke up this morning with light brownish spotting. Ive been having the other symptoms of being pregnant as well. I have had blood tests taken, and taken at home pregnancy tests and all of them was negative. i am just wondering if i could actually be pregnant and mu horomone levels are just too low to to register it or what. I need help!!!!! Ugh!
    -Very Desperate!

    • megan May 2, 2015, 2:12 pm

      Hi, When I was pregnant with my two year old, home pregnancy tests always came out negative even though I knew in my bones I was pregnant, two weeks after my pissed period and negatives I went to the doctors for them to do the test, and I was in fact pregnant. I think that would be your best bet would be going to a dr and taking a test. hope this helps, best wishes

  • Kristin April 29, 2015, 10:03 am

    So I’m confused and wondering what’s going on with my body. I had a period last month March 17-21 then had unprotected sex on 29,31,2 all my fertile days then on April 8 I had light brown spotting on and off that day only. My period was due April 15 and i am now 15 days late. I have only experienced frequent bathroom breaks even in the middle of the night, and headaches for over a week straight. I have taken a pregnancy test before my pissed period and yesterday and they came back negative. But do you think I could still be pregnant ? Even if it’s been two weeks? Thanks hope you can answer or give me some advice ! :)

    • Kristin April 29, 2015, 10:07 am

      I forgot to add the week of my period being due I had clear discharge no smell and wasn’t sticky. Just watery .

      • lorri April 30, 2015, 6:17 pm

        oh I’m feeling just like you, see:
        I had sex in feb 17, but my partner thought the condom might have broken and I took Levonorgestrel, I had my period as expected, my cycle was of 30 days. Then I had sex again in March 18, used a condom and it was fine, I had some spotting and 3 days later my period came as normal (heavy, with clots, lots of cramps, bloating, everything normal). Then I had sex on Apr 25 (4 days before my period due date), again with condom, and I’m 3 days late. I had a pregnancy test today and I came negative, I’ll have another one this Saturday if I don’t have my period yet, but I’m extremely worried.

I always had regular 28 day cycle before and during pill, never had irregular cycles and always lasts 7 days and I was told back in the beginning of feb 2014 that i had small cycst just about the size of a quarter. I’m healthy and I’m 31 years old.

    The main difference lies in the nature of vaginal discharge. In regular menstruation, there is heavy bleeding, which can last for three days and the menstrual discharge is red in color. But in implantation bleeding, there is no actual bleeding. Implantation bleeding is like spotting, which is pinkish or brownish in color. Usually, it is not associated with the symptoms of menstruation like pain, backache and cramps. However, some women may experience such symptoms too.

  • jennifer murakami April 19, 2015, 9:32 am

    My period is due like last Wednesday, it didn’t come. So I too a pregnancy test and it’s negative. Now I’m feeling light headed and dizzy like the room is spinning off and on. I’m also doing some very light pink spotting that’s off and on. But not sure whether to take that as a sign since I usually do the spotting that turns to brown spotting a week before my period starts.

  • Natalie March 29, 2015, 5:01 pm

    Hi, I had my period on the 19th Feb 2015 which came two days early as a normal menstrual period. I was meant to be due around 19th March and its now 29th march and still nothing, today I started to get cramps and brown discharge but not very much. im not really ttc but me and my hubby have been having sex quite a lot this month. its really out of the ordinary I came off the pill back in july last year and my body was like clockwork afterwards – every 28 days. so this is really out of the blue! I took tests but all negative. I keep getting sharp dull pains each side of my abdomen by my belly button and my hips are aching, have had headaches, slight cramps for 2 weeks. Im really worried as Im an 0 negative blood group and if I am pg. Anyone in a similar situation and any advice would be grateful. thanks

  • Susie March 28, 2015, 12:55 pm

    I have been spotting 5 days now only in the morning and at night and only when I wipe! Can it be implantation bleed? I’m due af tomorrow 3-29-15! Thanks in advance:)

    • Erin April 9, 2015, 11:41 am

      Susie, I am experiencing the exact same thing. AF was due April 2nd, experienced brown spotting on April 3rd. Have spotted only in mornings and night but color is a little more pink now, but also only when I wipe. Have not tested yet. Would love to know what you found out.

  • Trinidad March 27, 2015, 12:10 pm

    I have been ttc for a little over a year. My partner and i had sex two weeks on and off before my period came. which was suppose to come 3/17-18/15 My last period was 2/17/15 it lasted for 8days i have very heavy periods. Its now 3/26/15 i still dont have my period. Yesterday i went in for an vaginal ultrasound. Before my ultrasound i noticed some spotting very very light only seen it when i wiped. My ultrasound was done my doctor told me they seen something on my right side that looked to be a eptoic pregnancy or cyst. So she said i was not pregnant. She stated i get a second opinion. I told her about my spotting she said its my period coming. Its now 3/27/15 an now the spotting is light red brownish. Could what shee seen be infact me being pregnant an not a cyst? I have had symptoms of : nausea, diahrea, light cramping in lower abdominal an back ache. Please help!!!

  • keshia March 22, 2015, 9:50 am

    The last day of my period was march 11th we had sex march 12th,13th,15th. I started spotting on 18th, 20th and 21st it would last either the hole day or a few hours off and on. It was red/pink sometimes rust red. I have mild cramping on the bottom of my stomache it only lasts for like a minute then goes away. took a urine pregnancy test but a Negative it would of been to early anyway for it to show. I am on no birthcontrol and have a regular period for the most part and we are TTC.

  • Michelle March 20, 2015, 3:08 pm

    OK I have had sexual intercourse two days before my ovulation date which was on the 8th and again after which was on the 11th could I be pregnant ? And the reason I m asking is because I have been cramping nauseated and have plenty of the fatigue but I have not experienced implantation bleeding could I be pregnant still?

  • Jennifer March 19, 2015, 8:10 am

    Good day, i wanted to ask if any one could help me? I had bleeding 2 weeks ago for only 2 days, no heavy bleeding and on the 3rd day it stopped immediately. This was strange to me since i normally have a period for 3 days and a little more blood. So anyway, Yesterday i felt a wetness between my legs, i went to the bathroom and my pants was brownish and a little watery, i then wiped myself only when looking down i saw some little blood. After cleaning there was nothing since today. Could this be a sign of an early pregnancy? I have tenderness in my breasts as well, but this will not help as I always have a sort of pain in my breasts. I am 21 years old. I just want some ones advice ? I would like a baby, but i am scared as well. I was thinking that I should wait until my next period is due, and then take the test?? What would you people recommend?

Right now I’m spotting not sure if it’s my period or not. But after reading this it could be implantation bleed. Just to make sure I would like to hear your opinion.

  • Hope to be a mum February 24, 2015, 10:07 pm


    i’ve been trying to get pregnant since 2 yrs ago but no luck to be a mum. But i felt very funny for my this month period and curious to know what is it actually, i got my period on 21/2/2014 till 22/02/2015 ( (started of with light and then heavy) and the 23/02/2015 till today 25/02/2015 i have been noticing light bleeding which is only lasting for several hours. Example, when i take my bath in the morning i notice a small amount of brown blood and then nothing till i take my shower again in the evening. And next morning when im awake my tampon looks dry with the last night brown blood. Can anyone please advice me, im trying to conceive and really hope this is my chance to be a mother.

    Thank you very much.

  • Kailey February 13, 2015, 6:25 pm

    I have got an app on my phone (my period tracker) that is usually spot on for identifying when my period is suppose to start, ect. This month I started 11 days early, and it is really light which is fairly unusual for me as I usually have a moderate flow, changing a tampon 6-7 times a day whereas this month I put a tampon in, change it like I usually do, but only filling it up 30% – if that. I had a miscarriage on October 21st. I haven’t taken a home test yet because I am not sure when the best time would be to take it. (Whether I should wait a few more days). I am not on any sort of birth control, and my boyfriend and I do not use condoms (he’s stuck to his “pull-out” ways which I know aren’t 100% effective).

  • Blair February 9, 2015, 9:53 am

    So im sure that im having implantation bleeding but are the menstrual cramps part of this? This would make it my 5 pregnancy. Though i only have one child the other pregnancies didnt work out. Plus its a week before my cycle is due and i only spotted off and on for three days. I never spot for more than a day before my normal flow begins

  • krp February 4, 2015, 1:39 am

    I had my period on JANUARY 2ND it last about 4 days. My fiance and i are ttc so we have been tracking my ovulation and had intercourse during each day of ovulation. I usually get my period every 27-28 days it has now been 34. I began to spot tonight but did not notice it until i wiped. It was a very faint pink barely visible. We have been ttc for so long that i am scared to get our hopes up. My breast are sensitive and i had mild cramps earlier today i have been exhausted one day and cant sleep the next. I honestly thought it would never happen we have been together without a contraceptive for 7 years. Is it really happening? Could i actually be pregnant? I do not want to get his hopes up so now that the spotting has started how long should i wait to take the test? Good luck everyone.

My period which came a day early was light not heavy and when I wipe it’s still light should I take a home pregnantcy test or go see a doctor.

  • Kiante Curry January 31, 2015, 1:19 pm

  • Tiff January 30, 2015, 5:59 am

    How soon after suspected implantation bleeding should one expect to have a positive pregnancy test? I expected my cycle to start on January 31, but I think I’ve been experiencing implantation symptoms since January 28th (e.g, small bright red blood followed by scanty dark blood upon wiping, headache, and mild cramping). Should I take the test now? I hate being disappointed :(. Removed IUD in November.

    • Yasmin February 2, 2015, 7:22 pm

      I am experiencing the same thing. I had my IUD removed on Sep 17, been trying to get pregnant and scared of being disappointed. I hope you receive good news if you do take a test. I know it can be very frustrating.

  • Mackenzie January 20, 2015, 4:44 pm

    I got three positive tests on the day of my period due date and the day after. Then two days later I got my period. So it seems like I have had a chemical pg? Later I went to visit my chiropractor and she immediately noticed i looked tired, sad, etc. She asked me what was going on and I told her I was ttc. She then adjusted my pelvis (pubic symphysis) – she suspected i might be misaligned. Sure enough, I was – big time. I didn’t realize I was tense and that it was tilted. In your opinion can this help?

  • davina January 18, 2015, 11:32 pm

    I just need some information. I stopped taking the pill on November 21st 2014 at the end of the pack to ttc with my husband. I had what I assume is a normal withdrawal bleed on the 26th of nov, which lasted 4 days.
    Since then nothing (almost 2 months) unitl 3 days ago when I started to get dark brown spotting, also a dull ache low in the pelvis, not a strong pain like normal period cramps. It is very minimal bleeding and nothing like a regular period I have experienced. I have done 3 preg tests in the last 2 weeks (last one this morning) and all have been negative. Is there still a possibility I could be pregnant and should I be worried that the spotting is a symptom of a problem. I have heard spotting with negative tests can be a sign of issues such as eptopic pregnancy etc.
    I understand it takes a while for your body to regulate and get back to normal after coming off the pill. I am just wondering how long, with out a proper period and the spotting as well as the neg pregnancy tests, I should wait before I get too worried and see a doctor.

  • Kiersten January 17, 2015, 2:15 pm

    I’m used to my periods being irregular and later than the average, but this time it was extremely late. My last period started November 26th 2014. On January 6,7, and 8 2015, I had protected sex, (but I fear I may have gotten pre-cum near my area). I still had not started bleeding until today (Jan 17). My blood is brownish in color and goopy like eggwhites. It’s heavier than spotting and contains some clots. I’m having mild cramps off and on. I have yet to take a pregnancy test but I’m curious to know if this could be implantation bleeding or my very late period coming back?

  • sarah January 17, 2015, 8:09 am

    Can implantation bleeding include clots at some instances?

  • Lauren January 15, 2015, 10:52 am

    Hi all,
    I have recently had a period. My normal lasts 3 days. The amount was a little less than normal. The first day, I only had to use a panty liner. the second and third days, I was able to use regular tampons instead of super, and I did not have to change them as often. The whole time though it was brown with a little red her and there on the tampon. (sorry for the graphic details). I took a HPT on the first day when there was not much at all, and it was negative. I have been drinking a lot of water though, and I read that could cause a false negative. I have been feeling sick on and off the past week or so and getting fatigued really easy. I do not know if I am pregnant or not. Should I test again? Thoughts?

  • Jillian January 14, 2015, 9:53 pm

    Hi everyone! I had unprotected sex a couple of weeks ago. I was supposed to get my period today (January 14th). On the 11th I had some very light pink/brown spotting that lasted for just a couple of hours. The next day, I got what I THINK was my period (was quite a bit lighter than usual, but was the same colour as my usual period) but it only lasted until earlier today (so two days), and I’ve been having very light, light brown bleeding ever since. I usually have REALLY bad cramps for the first couple days of my period, & my breasts are usually INCREDIBLY sore from about a week before I get my period, until it’s finished.. But my cramps have been very mild, & I only had sore breasts for a couple of days last week and they haven’t been sore at ALL since I started my “period”. I have also been having bad diarrhea for the past four(ish) days, starting in the mornings, lasting throughout the day, until late afternoon or early evening, with slight nausea & quite terrible headaches. Just wondering what your thoughts are & if you have any similar experiences to please share them with me! Thanks ladies!

  • Sammy January 14, 2015, 8:35 pm

    I have a regular cycle and my period always comes on time and I experience very painful cramps in my lower back for about 2 days. I had unprotected sex about 2 weeks ago and I started bleeding it was light at first, then it went to heavy and now it has stopped it only lasted for about 30-36 hours. I didnt have severe cramps either they were lightly there but nothing like the severe cramps I get every month. I have also been very moody, exhausted, and have been having awful headaches and i have been slight light headed. Is there a possibility I could be pregnant or just an odd short period?

    • Michelle castillo January 28, 2015, 7:02 pm

      Same here I’ve been expediting the same symptoms and I wanna know if I’m pregnant too so did u find out?

    • madmax February 2, 2015, 7:43 pm

      My last period was from the 4th of December to the 8th of December 2014. I had unprotected sexon on the 15th of december 2014. I started having a light period or spotting which I only needed panty liners for on the 16th of January 2015 which lasted until the 1st of February 2015 which is very unusual. Today the 2nd of February 2015 I got a very heavy flow. I have a super tampoon and a panty liner and it could not contain the blood and it was less than 2 hours. I also have cramping and waist ache. Is it possible that I am pregnant. Help me please. Or could there be another possibility

  • Shorty January 11, 2015, 9:43 am

    I am confuse can anyone help me? I had unprotected sex on January 2 and I have an irregular period. I haven’t gotten my period and I took a pregnancy test it came out negative. However, I feel tired, my breast are very tender, I get cramps and I need to use the bathroom constiantly. I get dizzy when u get up and I can’t sleep face up because my abdominan will hurt. Sometimes I will get a brownish spotting when I wipe myself which I never get when I am going to have my menstrual cycle. Can it be that I took the test to early or is it that I am being nervous?

    • DP Nguyen January 12, 2015, 11:26 pm

      It is possible that you took the test early. Take a test again, and go see your doctor. It’s possible your symptoms are not related to pregnancy. UTIs can cause you to have to pee often, and if your stomach is hurting, I would definitely go see the doctor.

  • cielo enviar labuen January 7, 2015, 10:42 am

    i’ve been spotting for 4 weeks now light and dark color blood dec.15 to january 3 then i had a very light stain in my underware (panty through my short) then january 4 up to present im bleeding feeling much pain but not yet taking any test am i pregnant?

  • Jenn January 5, 2015, 5:21 pm

    I’m very confused. My husband and I just started TTC. I stopped using my Nuva ring right after my last cycle December 8th. ( in other words I never put a new ring in after taking the last one out). I am 28 years old going on 29. I have 2 other kids but they were unplanned and 8 years ago so I don’t remember many symptoms. I believe i ovulated around day 13 of my cycle. We were very consistent around that time with trying. I have been noticing all of the early pg signs such as sore breasts, swollen breasts, frequent urination. Even some nausea from time to time. I am expecting my period anytime this week and today I started with some dark colored spotting which turned to very light flow but bright red. I do have significant cramping but have had that for the past 1.5 weeks. I am concerned about what’s going on. Is this my period or implantation bleeding. Normally I have to wear a super tampon when AF comes but now I can get away with a panty liner and not much on it. The significant blood is found when I wipe. If you have any thoughts please let me know. I did take a hpt at about 10dpo but I don’t want to waste any more money if it is for nothing. I hope there is nothing wrong with me.

    I had my period on the 25th of November and it lasted 7 days. On december 2bd I had unprotected sex with my partner. On December 16 I had unprotected sex again. And acording to my calendar I was fertile that day. On December 25 I had my period?When I was suppose to have it on the 31st of December. Or dont know if it was period. And it 4 days it usually last 7 days. When I was on my “period” I had pain the entire time on my left side of the lower abdomen. My question is. Is there a possibility I can ve pregnant?

  • May January 1, 2015, 5:03 pm

    My period ended 4 days ago and when I woke up this morning and used the bathroom there was a quarter sized amount of blood. So I put a tampon in. About a half an hour later maybe 45 minutes I went in an I took the tampon out and it didn’t have any blood on it. I wiped and there was a pinkish water substance. Another hour goes by and I used the bathroom again and there is a rice sized blood clot and the pinkish watery substance again. What could this mean?

    • Jamie-lee January 15, 2015, 3:54 pm

      i have had the exact same thing but it was a week after my period and ive now been like this for roughly 2 weeks now and i took a pregnancy test a week ago as i was getting the same thing you just explained and it came up not pregnant but another weeks gone by and its still happening.

The last 3 days I have had very light spotting pinkish in colour which has been in the morning when i go to the toilet. I have noticed cervical mucus with the pinkish spots sometimes. Should I test for pregnancy ?

  • ash December 10, 2014, 8:10 am

    Ok so me and my fiancé have been trying to conceive for 3 months now, I was on mirena for a year and we waited a month after getting it removed to start trying for #2, I’ve had my mirena out for 4 months now periods have returned to normal, but still no luck! I thought maybe this month was my month, but I guess not. last month I started on NOV 12 and bleed until NOV 16 according to the app on my phone I ovulated on NOV 27. Me and my fiancé DTD on NOV 22, 25, 26, and the 29th. I started getting super gassy around the 5th of Dec and I was also having other symptoms also I took a test on Dec 5th and 7th both were negative. I figured I would wait and take another in two more days because my period isnt due until Dec 11th so I took another the morning of the 9th and it was negative also I had a couple spots on my pantry liner that were brown when I went potty mid day, well around 4:30 that afternoon I started my period or so Im thinking, but Im wondering and hoping and praying its just implantation bleeding since its two days before my period is suppose to come, I had just got done DTD and we noticed blood so I cleaned up and put a tampon(regular) in figuring great there goes this month but this evening when I went to go change it before bed it was only about half full the blood was more red this time though. Normally I would of filled a tampon by now and maybe had to switch to a super size. The bleeding is on and off, early this morning around 2 I was having some cramping which I norMalloy don’t have with my period it was kinda like a constant dull pain in my lower stomach and then I would have pull like cramping evvery so often and the bleeding started again when this was happening the blood from this was about enough to fill a panty liner up when I checked at 7am, I also got very nauseas and one point during the cramping early this morning and had to hold back from puking.. Im wondering if this is just implantation bleeding because of how light it is and since its 2 days before my cycle. Please help!

    I’m turning 44 in 3 weeks. Got 1 daughter who’s 8. My husband and I are sexually active. I’m off the pill for 2 yrs now. My period is regular and never had a problem whatsoever–except last Nov 27 when I only had a 1 day period. It was light, but blood was red; the following day, though, it’s totally gone. Would you please enlighten me? I’m not sure what’s happening to my body.

    • Julie December 12, 2014, 8:41 am

      Probably pre-menopause at your age. But, I would take a pregnancy test just in case.

  • May Gold November 28, 2014, 12:15 pm

    Hi! I am 24 years old and very frustrated! I’ve been off of the Nuva ring for a month and I was supposed to get my period this month on Friday, the 21st. It’s now the 28th and no period. After the first 3 missed days, and after getting all negative results on the HPT, I started to spot dark brown discharge. Now it’s more red/ pink and watery. It’s a small flow but too light to be a period. I have had back and abdominal cramping, sore breasts, and some other symptoms. I am confused what is going on with me. U have taken now over 6 HPT and all negative. My other two pregnancies I never had any bleeding. Any advice???

    I went off birth control about 5 months ago, and my husband and have been trying to get pregnant. My period after going off birth control was a couple days late the first month, but have been regular after that. I was due to start my period on Saturday or Sunday, but it never came. I did take a pregnancy test on Saturday afternoon, but it was negative. On Tuesday I had a small amount of brown spotting. I also have had lower abdominal cramping Monday night into Tuesday. What do you think?

    I had protected sex on October 16,2014. And my period was October 7 and lasted about 5days. I also had protected sex on November 2. And my period is supposed to come tomorrow but I had some spotting today. Is this a sign that I’m pregnant or that my period is coming? I’ve never spotted before. So I’m really scared.

  • Megan October 30, 2014, 1:51 am

    Hello. This is my first time writing on a website like this but I’m in a situation at the moment and would like to hear what someone else thinks. First off, let me just start by saying that my periods are almost always regular; sometimes may come a day or two late, but it’s normal for me. My last menstrual cycle was from September 29th – October 5th. I have an app on my phone that I use to track my periods, it also tells me the week I’m most fertile and my ovulation day. This month it was the week of the 8th – 14th, with my ovulation day being the 13th. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on the 9th and then again on the 10th. I did have a little bleeding after, but I just took it as normal since it was my first time having sex; yes, I was 21 and still a virgin.. but that’s another story. I began to feel different after that, tender/sore breasts, it seemed like they were also changing in color (becoming darker) and there were some bumps on them as well, along with that I had backaches, headaches, and nausea like crazy, dizziness sometimes too, mild cramps, frequently going to the bathroom. I took a home test on the 23rd, which came back negative (but I still think it would have been too early anyways).. later that day, we had unprotected sex again. My period was supposed to start today, the 29th, however I noticed blood on Monday, the 27th, it was pretty light, but seems to be getting heavier. I don’t know if this is my actual period because mine never, ever come early or if this may be implantation bleeding. I’ve read that the flow and length of the bleeding depend on the person. Some may be light and last a few hours to a day or two and some can be heavy and last quite a few days. I’m not sure what to think or do right now so any opinions would be helpful. I still have the same symptoms, though the nausea is a lot worse. I don’t know if this means anything or not but if I lay down on my back and press lightly into my abdomen it feels firm, like harder almost and is kinda sensitive to the touch in certain ares. I dunno though. Thanks in advance for any tips, advice.

  • kenisha October 25, 2014, 4:01 pm

    Hi, my name is kenisha. My situation is I have irregular period and I’m also having unprotected sex with my bf, I missed 3 periods and for 2 days now I’m having what I thought was my period coming but it’s on and off and I only see it when I whipe and I’m having cramps at the bottom of my tummy and low back pain mostly when I wake in the morning and I also wake up at nights with painful head ache. Does that sounds like I’m pregnant or I’m about to have my period? Please help…..

    • AW October 26, 2014, 5:58 am

      Hello Kenisha. I’m not an expert. Just from what this article has reported, I would say take the home pregnancy test. To answer your question: yes, it does sound to me like you’re pregnant. However, you know your body better than anyone else. If what is currently happening, as you described, really does not feel like one of your periods (I know you said irregular), take the test. Or even have a doctor or NP give you one for clarity.
      I pray everything works out for you. :-)
      O… & P.S. If you’re not pregnant, ask your bf to begin using condoms because you want to have peace of mind. Also research ways to prevent condom breakage during sex.

  • angel October 24, 2014, 2:12 pm

    Hello my name is angel. Im 23 ive been having unprotected sex for 5 years with the same man. We are trying flr a baby. And I have always had regular periods. I was on depo 4 years ago only 1 treatment, then stopped. Aug 5th was my last period. Now that its oct I started spotting on the 20th nothing big just a wipe and it was gone. Today is the 23rd and im not seeing anything. It was a pink red but brownish color no cloths. In the early oct. I took hpt but they were negative. My boobs feel bigger and my areolas are round and double the size. There not sore. But ill have to itch them at times… whats going on can someone help me? Ive been wanting to be a mom for some time now. And this will be my first if I am…

    • E November 4, 2014, 2:45 pm

      It sounds like you may be pregnant. I would suggest you take a home pregnancy test. You may of tested too early before. My last regular period was 9/28/14 and my ovulation dates was around Oct 13. I had sex on this day and on the 15th as well. I started getting what seemed liked regular menstrual symptoms for the weeks following. My scheduled period was due 11/2/14 but instead started Friday 10/31/14. It was not enough to soak a pad or anything and was mostly when I wiped (sorry for the TMI). I was also feeling minor pinching in my abdomen. The blood flow was very light but very dark red blood. It only lasted a couple of days. I feel a bit bloated now, but no sensitivity in my breasts (though they feel slightly fuller), no changes in mood. I have noticed also that I have been getting very thirsty. I am planning on buying a home pregnancy test today 11/4/14.

    Hi heres my story, I ‘m 20 about to be 21 and I have irregular periods, and I was on the depo for two years but have been off of it since april and have had regular cycles since then, but I had unprotected sex with my partner, on the 16th of october, and I wasnt expecting my period for a week or two, and as of yesterday I started spotting, I was very tired and very light headed and had a huge headache, my boobs have been sore and tender for days now, and yesterday my spotting was light, and it was pinkish, and brownish, but today its heavy and I have cramps could I be pregnant or am I having my period, I dont know if I ovulated when we had intercourse but we had sex a week or two weeks before my expected period, but Its been 7 days since then and Im worried if Iam misscarring or is it implantation, I bought a test but still havent taken it. can some one help me?

    • Jackie October 24, 2014, 2:40 am

      Hey stephanie,
      I read your story and I am having similar issues only I am 16 DPO (Days past ovulation) My story is the one below yours. I am also 20 about to be 21. I am pretty sure that you are experiencing implantation. If you are 7 DPO like you say it may be still a little early to test and you could get a BFN (Big fat negative) even if you are pregnant. 7 DPO is around the time to expect implantation and it does look pinkish brown or some red spotting. However it only continues for around a day or so and could be on and off. You can take the test around 16 or 17 DPO However, the longer you wait the more likely chance it’ll be positive because every 24-48 hours your HCG builds more and more (pregnancy hormone.) I’m pretty positive you are NOT miscarrying because you would be bleeding profusely almost like a period and have sharp quick pains. If you have some discomfort it’s normal. If you still get a BFN after 17 DPO wait until the day you miss your expected period to re-take. If you still think you may be pregnant and are continuing to get a BFN, call your OB gyn and make an appointment, he or she will be able to tell you for sure through another test or a blood test, and answer any questions you have. Especially if you make the appointment the day of or some day after you miss your expected period. For us women it’s a waiting game. Be patient and check out this link below, it helped me I think it’ll help you… http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/tools/pregnancy_test_calculator.php#results

    • angel October 24, 2014, 2:14 pm

      Hello going thro the same thing.please let me know what happens!!

  • Jackie October 23, 2014, 2:05 pm

    Hi, My name is jackie and im 20 almost (21). I have polycystic ovaries and irregular periods. I had been on birth control pills since i was 14 and (if I took the medicine regularly, consistently) I wouldn’t get a period at all. In september of this year around the middle of the month somthing went wrong and I could no longer get my birth control pills so, since I wasn’t taking it I got my period. Keep in mind my periods are irregular because of my polycystic ovaries. My period this past month started on september 28 and ended on october 7th or 8th. I find my average length for my cycle to be around 24 to 28 days. I ovulated on cycle day 9. My boyfriend and I never used condoms while I was on my birth control because, Due to having polycystic ovaries and not having a period at all we figured it would be HIGHLY UNLIKELY for me to even have a chance at getting pregnant. We have been having sex for 3 1/2 years this way and never got pregnant. So, naturally when I stopped taking it and got a period I thought, “it must be out of my system and I can’t have sex without a condom now.” I got online and I read a few articles that said you have to be off of your birth control for about 3 months to a year (in some cases) before it’s completely out of your system for you to get pregnant. And due to not seeing each other for a few weeks my boyfriend and I decided to have sex on the 8th without any protection; figuring that it wasn’t completely out of my system and I was still protected even though I was no longer taking the pills and hadn’t for about a month. At first, the thought of possibly being pregnant never even crossed my mind. A couple days after we had sex I experienced a slight temperature change it seemed as if it was the start of a cold or maybe I was getting sick. (I don’t know what ‘hot flashes’ are but I compare it to that.) After about a week of having unprotected sex on the 18th I went to the bathroom and noticed I had a brownish discharge like in my underwear. I thought, “Oh man, seriously?! I just got over my period a week before!” (give or take a few days.) I was pretty upset because I thought I was getting my period, AGAIN! I thought, “Already? this can’t be right… even WITH irregularity” But, I just brushed it off and stuck in a tampon despite how early and close it was to my previous period ending. Later, when I went to the bathroom I decided to change and noticed I wasn’t bleeding yet, and the “discharge” was WAY too light brown to be discharge. Also, the tampon appeared clean, It was like if you stuck a tampon in on a day you are off your period and came back 3-4 hours later to take it out… I wondered what the brown discharge was but again, brushed it off and threw away the old tampon. Without sticking in another I went back to my usual day. Later when I went to the bathroom again (I swear I must have peed 80 times that day) I wiped and noticed that same brownish light color ‘discharge’. I was really really confused at this point because after that it continued to be a very light brown ‘discharge’ on and off for about 2 days. For the next couple day’s I noticed a small appetite change, I’m craving ice cream and pickles, But those are some of my favorite foods so I thought nothing of it. I also experienced an iron like taste in my mouth, like blood, or like I was sucking on a penny or something. I also thought nothing of it because I don’t mind the taste. I have been a little moody but I am normally more bitch like so I realized I have been unusually laid back the past couple days aside from the constant crying. I have clinical depression so I am always tired but this past week or so I have been so tired I over sleep, I’m talking like major! one day I slept for like 18 hours. I feel constantly run down even though I’m on work leave right now and live at home with my mom. I am a little heavier but, this past couple days even going up and down the stairs is hard like I run outta breath very easy. All my muscles started to hurt and my back and feet are killing me. I thought maybe it’s because of my bed, a spring mattress with a bunch of comforters and blankets on the floor. Then the sickness came into play. I thought maybe I was getting the flu because I was literally so nauseous to the point where I was waking up in the middle of my sleep only to feel like I was going to end up running in the bathroom to puke. But, I never did actually throw up. I also have been bloated and my boobs seem bigger than normal, the areola’s arent dark nor do they hurt. On October 22nd (yesterday) I was 14 DPO got online and did a little research regarding my symptoms and found they are all related to pregnancy. So, being worried I went to the dollar store and took one of those “%99 accurate” dollar tests. It came up negative. I was instantly relieved but still couldn’t explain all these unexpected symptoms I am STILL having. So, I did some more research and to my avail I think I took the test to early. I expect my period to start today or within the next 3-5 days. I haven’t gotten it yet today so I made an appt. with my OB gyn. Scheduled for monday oct. 27th, the last day I expect my period to start due to it’s irregularity. I am almost positive I am pregnant, but got a negative result 14 DPO. I looked up some negative results on 14 DPO and saw it’s not uncommon and to take another test the day after I missed my expected period. The problem is, mine is irregular so I’m not sure when my periods expected to come. I have to wait until the day I see the doc to be sure because that’s the last day I figure it’ll come due to the last months. After that if I still haven’t got it I am sure I am pregnant. Also, the doc can confirm.

  • Bongi October 14, 2014, 8:57 am

    Hi ! thanks for the article, this is the clearest explanation I have found on the net, I’m not sure how long the article dates back as I only came across it today,I need your help, I got married last month on the 21 September and ever since we’ve been having unprotected sex with my Husband ( with no contraceptives,I’ve never used contraceptives), Around the 30th of September till today I have been having Cramps at the back and front like period pains, ( By the way my periods were due on the 9th of this month) , what got my attention was that since last month of September I got sharp pains on the left and sometimes right and when i googled it they said its round ligament pain ( which occurs in early stages of pregnancy) and it has been on my case since last month,added to that I have a slight pain that feels like a light pinch that is constant below my belly button. Yesterday I took a home pregnancy Test, the results were negative, then immediately I started seeing blood on my painty liner, even today I’m seeing blood on my liner ( I normaly have heavy periods ) normally my day two of periods I have to use 3 pads of Heavy Pads ( or night pads), Under normal circumstances I use the very last number of Pads. The blood that is on my liner is RED, and is not as frequent as my normal flow, I have cramps on my lower abdomen, and unlike periods they are constant,I’m super tired in the mornings its a battle to wake up,yesterday I ate a biscuit ( Not a scone but a biscuit ) and I could taste an egg in it and got so Nauseous. Please help….I’m ssssoooo eager to find out if i’m pregnant or not.

    • DP Nguyen October 19, 2014, 2:51 am

      wait another week, take a pregnancy test, or go to the doctor to get a blood pregnancy test. implantation bleeding isn’t usually too heavy, but light spotting might be a sign of implantation.

  • Raisha M September 22, 2014, 5:56 pm

    Hello, i am wondering if what i am experiencing is implantation bleeding.Firstly i had amc in June of this year. I hadn’t had acycle for 9 weeks. The 10th week my dr. Put me on Provera 10mg for 5 days. My cycle started 11 days after last pill. My cycle lasted 5 days. I am sexually active, and my next expected period would be due 9/18/14. Instead what i thought was my period started 9/15 pinkish/brownish in color, and only there when i wipe.Ive been wearing a pantyliner in case but it never picked up. It lasted for aapproximately 5 days. However im still.cramping lightly. Any.thoughts on what this can.be? Thanks.

  • ss September 6, 2014, 9:18 am

    I just got my period back on the 4th of August after not having one for two years, due to being pregnant and breastfeeding my son for 13.5 months. We are trying to conceive. My periods were pretty normal before I got pregnant-28 day cycle with normal bleeding.

    I had very, very light spotting for 4 days that started on day 24 of my cycle. I took a pregnancy test on the 4th day after expected period and the test was negative. My question is, could I be pregnant or is there a possibility that my hormones are still trying to level out and return to normal after breastfeeding?

  • MJ September 3, 2014, 2:44 pm

    I have a regular 27 day cycle. My husband and I have been ttc for, oh geez, almost 4 years. I was suppose to start on Sat., Aug. 29, but nothing. Then I had the brownish pinkish discharge for a couple hours on Mon, Sep 1, then nothing. Then today, Sep 3, more spotting…some cramping…feels like period cramps….but I’m a sissy when it comes to pain. I took a hpt on Tues, Sep 2, and it came back negative. Is this implantation bleeding and did I take the test too soon?

  • Rachymuffin August 28, 2014, 3:28 am

    DH and I have been ttc for 4 months. This month I didn’t temp and kind of stopped stressing on “trying” so hard. Then I started what I thought was my period two days ago, but it was four days early. I have pretty regular periods, and am not on any medications. I bled bright red and quite a bit (total of about a panty liner full, maybe a little less) from the morning until the early evening and then it completely stopped. I had some pretty serious cramps that day. Usually my periods are 3 days full blood and one or two days spotting so this is not normal for me. It’s been two days and I am having mild cramps on and off but no more blood. I keep thinking I feel moisture and I go to the bathroom thinking I have started for sure, but it’s just CM. I’m still not due for period until another day or two. I am hoping that it was implantation bleeding but I’m not going to test for at least two more days (today is Wed, I’ll try Fri morning). I don’t want to stress on it, but it’s hard not to obsess. Wish me luck! I’m already 40 so my clock is ticking!!!

    • Jaclyn October 23, 2014, 9:32 am

      Hello!! I was just wondering if you ended up being pregnant?!

  • tahj August 28, 2014, 12:39 am

    And also, earlier this year I lost my first child due to what seemed to be a ectopic pregnancy. It was a case where I missed my period which had never happened before and I took two preg test that came back pos. But after about a month, I started to bleed heavy one morning. Went to the doc he said cervix eas closed so the bby was ok. Bleeding stopped later. Started back a few days after, with mild pain so went to another doc and did a ultrasound only to find out that the baby was dead n inside of me still. Was really heartbreaking. So now I’m bleeding but I think I’m preg, fearing that it might be another miscarriage :'(. What to do??

  • tahj August 28, 2014, 12:25 am

    You said a pregnancy test can’t be conducted until you miss your period. However I’m on my period but think I might be preggo so does that mean I cant take a home preg test????

  • Kam2 August 18, 2014, 7:25 am

    Hello well I have been having unprotected sex with my significant other for a month now and starting yesterday around 8 9 o’clock I noticed light pinkish to red blood only when I wiped it never would get on my panties only seen blood when I wiped so today when I woke up it was a lil heavy due to having sex last night I’m guessing but now it’s right back at being light bleeding and pinkish and red blood , my period is normally extremely heavy and uncontrollable where I have to change tampons and pads within a hour so this is kind if confusing bc with my last child I did not have any spotting , my period us normally due closer to the end of the month around the late 20s lasting 5 to 6 days , this morning I put tampon in for about a hour and took it out to see light brown and red blood not much I need some type of advice could this be implantation bleeding I’m also have mild cramps I’ve being having those all month with some nausea tiredness and earlier in month I did have some headaches and dizziness, flutters in stomach but they didn’t last long

  • holly August 12, 2014, 9:56 pm


    I have had a normal period since I had my IUD taken out last July(2013) and was not sexually active until this July. My periods were an average of 5 to 6 days on and 14 days off. Starting my period in June this year I went 21 days off before my July period. I had already become sexually active again by the time it began on July 9th. My period ended on July 16th. I continued to be sexually active until august 2nd. My next period did not begin till august 9th. It has worried me since before it started. My normal periods are heavy for four days and light for one to two days. This period though started out very light like spotting and hasn’t really changed. I had a few tiny blood clots but I have had problems with them since a birthed my daughter six years ago. So can that mean it is implantation bleeding? My period today is almost non existent. That has never happened to me before!

  • Carlene Alcazar August 8, 2014, 6:00 pm

      I almost forgot my period in july is july 2 and it last at july 7. then I get my period at august 6 to 8. I have irregular period but Im just curious about that am I going to be still pregnant?

  • Rachel August 7, 2014, 7:58 pm

    My period was a few days late then I got my period for 2 days and then it stopped.. That is not normal for me.. I took a test the day before I started bleeding and then I took one the morning after I stopped bleeding and they both came out negative.. Is there a chance I could be pregnant?

    • Angel August 20, 2014, 3:50 am

      same with me. wondering this myself. i had this happen to me last month..

      i’m now late, and had very light spotting when i whipped one time… and have been dealing with mild cramping and bad back aches for about a week and a half… this is so bizarre.. i havent had anything like it before.. my periods are very predictable.. i cramp severely for a day and then my period starts. this is all different to me.

  • Tiffany August 4, 2014, 3:46 pm

    Hello. I’m looking for some guidance. I’ve never been pregnant before and am unfamiliar with the symptoms and implantation bleeding. I have a boyfriend of 4 years and we are sexually active. I take an oral contraceptive and am usually great about taking it at the exact dame time each day. The past two months I have not been so great at taking it on time and even missed a day. On July 29 I began spotting on and off a brown discharge this ended August 1. I have a very regular period and should be getting it today (8/4) or tomorrow. This spotting a week before has never happened to me. In a panic I’ve taken a few pregnancy tests and they’ve all come out negative. Was my spotting implantation bleeding? Could the home pregnancy tests be wrong?

  • Caaron July 31, 2014, 9:54 pm

    Hello, my period was July 6-10th. I started bleeding very lightly pink brownish on July 25-27th. Not sure what’s going on. I’m very concerned and scared. Please offer any advise.

  • Allie July 31, 2014, 1:40 pm

    me and my hubby have been ttc the last 3 months..and this past month according to my fertility calculator my fertile window was July 18-23 with my peak ovulation day being the 21st. me and hubby had sex every day from the 17th-25th just to make sure we covered our bases lol now its the 31st and im super anxious anyways to take a test, but im waiting til 14 dpo to take one. ive taken one already the 25th that was negative (i jumped the gun on that one…but im nervous!) the past few days ive been really irritable and having lower abdominal cramps, and today i had some light brown spotting when i got to work. my period isnt supposed to arrive til the 4TH of August (4 days from now…) its our first time trying so…does this sound like it could be implantation bleeding?

  • Mo July 24, 2014, 9:20 pm

    Hello, I am a little confused. I already have two children and don’t really understand what is going on. I have very regular cycles, 28-29 days. It usually lasts for 7-8 days. I use the My days app, and in a year, I have always come on when I was due. For July, I was five days late, with four negative test. I had pink spotting on the fourth day, I could only see when I wiped. Then I begun bleeding (brownish) blood, for two days. It has been six days and I have not come back on. Should I be concerned, test again or just wait see if I come on next month. I am also experiencing like a cramping or pulling sensation in the pelvic area when I move around too much (I am in the process of unpacking the house).

  • Brenda July 21, 2014, 7:53 pm

    Hi, my ovulation window was July 11-15 and my period is supposed to start July 25th. Last week, I was feeling nauseas off and on, but mostly in the evening. Yesterday and today, July 20th & 21st, I’ve had brownish blood- very light. I usually have this near the end of my period cycle and I’m regular every 28 days, which I normally spot a couple of days before my period and then flow heavy. I took a hpt First Response this afternoon, but it came back negative. Did I test too soon? The test said it can detect up to six days before missed period.

  • Samantha July 20, 2014, 6:48 pm

    I’m A Little Freaked out. My cycle is the normal 28 day cycle. I had unprotected sex with my partner 4 and 2 days before ovulation. My period was three days late and was a lighter flow than my normal heavy flow it was brownish pinkish in color and had two tiny clots in it and they are usually huge. I didn’t have any cramping like I usually do. I’m feeling super nauseous and I have lower abdominal cramping, sore tender breasts, lower back pain
    And gas. Something just doesn’t feel right if I am pregnant I would be 6 weeks along is this normal? Was I experiencing implantation bleeding or no?

  • Natalie Jones July 19, 2014, 10:36 pm

    I am 27 yrs old and have pcos. Normally my periods are irregular and can be anywhere from 32-40 days apart and very heavy and painful with lots of clotting normally lasting 6-8 days . This month it was very light comparatively lasted only 3 days with no clotting or painful cramping. It had been a week since the lighter bleeding and I am finding myself irritable frequently having bouts of insomnia, nightly heartburn and have pronounced veins on my breasts. No nausea or vomiting, no food craving or aversion, no cramping other than low back (I do work with horses) very different than a previous pregnancy lost to placenta previa. Could I still be pregnant given the symptoms mentioned?

  • Michelle July 19, 2014, 5:45 am

    Hi! I haven’t had sex for about 2 years now until recently. I’ve been having protected (condoms, no birth control pills) sex for 2 weeks with my current boyfriend. Putting in the fact that I am 18 years old, my period has always been irregular, there are times where I don’t get my period for 6 months or longer. In this case, I haven’t had my period for 3-5 months. Couple days after the last time I had sex with my boyfriend, I got my period(?). My period this time around seems a little unusual. Normally, my period is lighter the first day or two then gets heavier then spotting happens afterwards. My period usually finishes (after spotting and all) in a week or sometimes a day or two after a week. Right now, this is my 8th day on my period or so I should call it. I started off light almost like spotting, then it get heavier but lighter than usual, then to light again almost like spotting as well. My period color is bright red/brownish, but if I wipe after I urinate it comes out red/pinkish color (not TOO pink, you can tell its red but just really light red). Should I be worried? I had the same symptoms when I usually have my periods: back aches, cramps, lower abdominal aching, etc. Is this my period or is there something wrong?

    • Michelle July 19, 2014, 5:49 am

      Another note: I heard that sex changes up your period. Is that what is happening right now? I’m not sure if I should be really worried that I’m having a implantation bleeding or something else? I’ve been freaking out the last couple days.

  • Amber July 15, 2014, 10:08 pm

    My last full cycle was May 13-19, I completely skipped June. I woke up today (15th) with spotting & as the day went on not a heavy flow but is brownish (it was lighter earlier ). Thought it would be heavier since I didn’t have one last month. Test said negative, should I wait say another week and retake pregnancy test?

    • DP Nguyen July 17, 2014, 11:16 pm

      Yeah, wait a week and take another pregnancy test. And if you still don’t have your period, go to the gynecologist and get a blood test

  • Brodie July 15, 2014, 1:17 am

    I usual have on average a 32-38 day cycle, and i experience heavy bleeding with clots and is always dark red, usually lasting 6 days. My last period was on the 12th June & ended on the 17th, i had unprotected intercourse on the 23rd June & 2nd July (ovulated around the 2nd).
    My period wasn’t due until roughly the 21st July , but I had got my period late at night on the 12th of July it was very light compared to usual, no clots and was pink in colour , it ended early this morning (15th July) so roughly lasted only 3days..
    I usually get emotional, sore breasts and sometimes cramping ritually a week before my period, but I have had no PMS symptoms what so ever before this happened….
    Is this normal to happen? Or could this be Implanation Bleeding?

    • DP Nguyen July 17, 2014, 11:18 pm

      It sounds like it is a very good chance that it could be implantation bleeding. I would take a home pregnancy test next week to see if you are pregnant.

  • Sara July 9, 2014, 11:01 pm

    Hi! So. . . .here’s my story. I’ve been having brownish pinkish discharge for a little over 24 hrs. My husband and I had unprotected sex twice about week ago. Now, it’s too early for my period. I’m not suppose to start for about 2 more weeks. I’ve been having some mild cramping, breast tenderness, and I’m so tired. I’ve also been working out more. I started that about 3 weeks ago. I know sometimes that can change your cycles too. I’m just concerned. I took a pregnancy test, it was negative. But I think that’s cuz I haven’t had a posed period yet.
    I also looked up ovulation bleeding, so I took an ovulation test and that was negative. My periods are never regular. I can go 28 to 36 days between my periods. I started tracking my cycles through app’s but that doesn’t really help when my cycle is so off. I did have implantation bleeding with my first child. But this occurred after a positive home pregnancy test was taken. So I knew I was pregnant at that time. Could I be pregnant now?? Any comments would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    • DP Nguyen July 14, 2014, 9:18 pm

      It is possible that you’re having implantation bleeding. I guess you will have to wait and see if you’re pregnant or not. But with all your symptoms, it does seem hopeful that you could be. Good luck!

  • Marighny July 7, 2014, 3:26 pm

    My last period was June 11. I took a round of clomid & got a positve LH on an ovulation test on Friday June 27. Today, Monday July 7, I have some light bleeding thats a pinkish color. Could this be my period? My dr said that we usually don’t have a period till 14 days after ovulation.

    • DP Nguyen July 14, 2014, 9:27 pm

      It might be implantation bleeding. However, yes, your doctor is correct. You usually won’t have a period until 2 weeks after you ovulate.

      • Miranda July 23, 2014, 2:59 pm

        My question goes along with this post you responded to. My last pregnancy my progesterone levels were too low and I required Clomid in order to conceive. Unsure of whether I am ovulating or not I purchased OTK. The first day I took one, 7/14 it was positive. It happened that my husband and I had intercourse that morning and again on 7/15. On 7/23, day 30 of my cycle, I began having some brownish spotting but it has since turned quite heavy like a period with bright red blood. It is now 7/24 and I’m still cramping and bleeding. Since having my son last year my cycles have all been long (54, 35, and 40 days) so it seems weird I would now have a 30 day cycle with a positive OTK just 7 days prior. Based upon past periods I shouldn’t have a period for 1-1.5 weeks. I also suffer from endometriosis so heavy and irregular bleeding is not unusual. Is it likely that the heavy bleeding could be implantation? Sorry for the novel but all information I find is based on normal cycles. Thanks for your help!

  • michelle June 27, 2014, 4:18 am

  • Olivia June 11, 2014, 8:55 am

    Hi just read your information on implantation bleeding well my husband and I have been trying to have a baby for 3 months since my miscarriage in January I was 10 weeks exact which lead to a c section to remove a cyst I had doctor said it was ok to start in march of this year but unsuccessful now this time a few days before my period I had done some home tests saw a very very faint line then tried a day before my period started and I got nothing so I thought well it might have been a chemical then my period started 2 days before the actual day with just spotting then a light period with I very mild to no cramps for 2 days and the 3rd day spotting again and mine are usually very heavy with extreme unbearable pain and last for about 5 days that is why I found it different it as red but much lighter then I usually get usually I have to change my pad every 2 or max 4 hours but I did not have to with this as not much was on the pad just when I went to the washroom and wiped I had more on the tissue then on the pad now because of the negative test the day before it started which I used the clear blue digital which said not pregnant I am sceptic could I just be imagining things or not but I did have the symptoms before but now I only feel slightly nauseas and slight heightened sense of smell but no sore breasts or anything now yesterday I felt a flutter in my lower tummy but it could be anything. Please advise.

    My periods are regular. I had unprotected sex on the 30th, I was fertil. I’m suppose to start my period in about 5 days but yesterday I experienced bleeding. Light pink then through out the day it was a mixture of brown and little red. It was light. However, this morning at 3 am I woke up with pains that I could have swore were period cramps. They didn’t last long, and I wasn’t bleeding alot. Now I am bleeding through a tampon. I’ve ready that implantation bleeding can be heavy, but usual is not. I have taken 4 test and all have said negative. I don’t know if I am testing to early or if this is my period, and if so, why am I 5 days early?

    I just had my son in March 24, 2014. Since having him me and my SO have been having unprotected sex with him finishing inside many times. I haven’t been using any type if birth control at all but I am breastfeeding feeding my son. I have gotten my cycle about a month after having my son and on May 20. They usually last about 6-7 days and I have a normal 28 days cycle. The last time my SO and I have had intercourse was on the 30th of May and that should very been around my ovulation date. On the 9th of June I started having light bleeding and by the night I had very heavy bleeding and still am experiencing that. I have yet to test so I don’t know if I may of been pregnant or not. Even though the bleeding is very heavy could it possibly be implantation bleeding?

    • KatE June 10, 2014, 1:08 pm

      My period wasn’t due until around the 17 of June I believe

  • jona June 8, 2014, 9:21 pm

    • DP Nguyen June 10, 2014, 12:10 pm

      It may be too early to test but wait another week and take another home pregnancy test.

          Take a pregnancy test.

  • JescaL. June 6, 2014, 1:05 am

    First off great info here and comments. As much as I love posting answers, I happen to have a few questions. I have been researching quite a while to find the answer to this question, but first ill briefly explain my dilemma. My last period was May 9 (28 days ago), I had protected sex (but the condom came off after ejacualtion) on May 22. (14 days into my cycle) I’ve had all the classic symptoms of pregnancy. My period is due (today) June 6. I cramped really bad on June 2 (24 days ago), then my cramps went away but not my symptoms. June 5th(yesterday) I had very light brown discharge. So far thats all thats there. Im sure it came from my cervix bc every day, on every restroom trip (which is quite frequent) for the past week, i checked my cervix for blood. There was nothing but alot of creamy white discharge and a soft semi-high cervix that I can’t tell is open or closed. My last hpt was taken June 3 (on day 25 of my cycle) and it was negative (possibly bc I tested too early) But my question is I know that brown discharge or blood is old so if this is my first day of my period why is the blood old? Shouldn’t it be fresh? Could this be implantation bleeding from my June 2 cramps?? If so how long should I wait to take another hpt? Is today long enough if that was indeed implantation bleeding on June 2?

    • JescaL. June 6, 2014, 1:28 am

      Btw I am sure by the time I recieve answer to these questions, I will know my results, but if anyone has answers or insights to my questions I would greatly appreciate it regardless the time frame bc I think its great info to know. Is first day period blood suppose to be fresh first? Could old blood indicate a previous implantation and if so how long after implantation bleeding could someone take a urine test? Might I add my symptoms are sore heavy breast, sensitive nipples, frequent urination (I’m extremely thirsty) nausea/vomitting and extreme mood swings. I’m not on BC , no STDs, not TTC and consider myself a healthy individual. I post my results June 8th after my Dr. appt for anyobe interested.

      • Andrea June 10, 2014, 3:26 am

        So are you pregnant Jesca L.?

    • DP Nguyen June 10, 2014, 12:13 pm

      Brown blood is old blood, so to me, it sounds like implantation bleeding. Since the condom came off after ejaculation, there’s always a possibility some could have escaped and you got pregnancy. I would wait another week or get a more sensitive home pregnancy test (some can detect pregnancy sooner than others). You can also go get a blood preg test at your doctor’s office, which is more effective in detecting early pregnancy.

  • toni May 27, 2014, 8:42 pm

    The past 4 mornings I have had light spotting maybe 3 or for drops then nothing the rest of the day. My periods are irregular but I’ve never had this happen before. Could I be pregnant?

  • Dee May 25, 2014, 5:27 am

    If I had implantation bleeding in a previous pregnancy does it automatically mean I will have in future pregnancies?

    • JescaL. June 6, 2014, 1:49 am

      From what I read the woman’s body changes overtime so therefore, its possible to go either way on your next pregnancy. Implantation bleeding may or may not occur depending on the way your uterus responds to the egg burrowing itself into the lining. I was pregnant twice. My first pregnancy I mistaked implantation bleeding as my period so I didnt monitor myself closely. My second I found out I was pregnant before my missed period. Went to Doc a week later and he told me i was 3 weeks based on a sonogram. No heart beat just a dark spot where my baby girl was forming was all I saw. I worried about miscarrying (which happened my first pregnancy after 16 weeks) but I don’t recall ever spotting or bleeding after 3 weeks. So in my case it was not the same. But every woman’s body is different. Good question, but unfortunately no definite answer.

    • DP Nguyen June 10, 2014, 12:21 pm

      no, every pregnancy is different.

  • Marie May 24, 2014, 11:11 am

    Hi there, me & my partner are trying for our first. We are on month 5. I have always had irregular periods growing up into my teens, I’m now 21 & think my average cycle is 42 days. My last period was 7/5/14 and lasted 5 days as normal, but recently had some spotting on the 12/5/14 it lasted 2 days very lightly but then appeared again a little darker. It has stopped now as I’m just getting little light spots when I wipe.. 24/5/14. Any idea what this could be? My doctor is prescribing chlomid for me soon so hopefully this works!

    • Marie May 24, 2014, 6:57 pm

      I’m now getting slight cramps in my lower stomach and the spotting is still there but very very light..

      • JescaL. June 6, 2014, 2:16 am

        Hey marie,

        I know this response is late but it sounds like an irregular period to me. Irregular not only refers to an extremely short or long cycle (42 days!! Lucky you :-) but the way u bleed too. The normal pattern is light, heavy, then light again. So regardless the amount of blood if its following this pattern its probably just a regular, irregular cycle. (If that makes any sense :-) either way I think only a doctor who knows ur history could give you a better answer. I hope things got better for you.

  • Rosie May 23, 2014, 8:31 am

    Hi, my husband and I are trying for a baby, we are on month 5 now. I’m normally pretty regular 27-29 days. Previously had the mirena coil with no periods. My period this month isn’t due for another week. I started with brown mucus, then went to dark pink discharge, now is bright red but mainly only when I go to the loo and on wiping. Occasional flow of blood onto a panty liner where I have to go sort myself out in the bathroom. No clots, the flow is much lighter than normal and I’ve never been early before. Have cramps but don’t need any pain relief which I normally do with my cramps. Was convinced I was pregnant this month as have very sore breasts and feeling a little nauseous. My breast tenderness is now easing. Don’t really know what to think? Thanks :)

  • AntuanetteNicole May 22, 2014, 11:54 am

    I just got off Implanon about a year ago and my periods almost always come at the end of the month. recently me and my bf where trying to conceive we had sex right after my period and then had sex on May 7th. and May 11th. Ive recently started having tender breast and weird food cravings. and some bleeding here a there when i wipe there’s some light colored blood. am i pregnant?

  • Sanju May 21, 2014, 10:48 pm

    I usually have very regular 28 day cycles. My period was due on may 6th. But, i started bleeding on 29th april itself. First it wasvery light but, gradually it was moderate. It was watery and not heavy as my normal period. It lasted for 2 n half days where as my regular period would last for 4 days and heavy. We are trying to have chidren since 3 months. So, am i a pregnant?? I had a early pregnancy test on 4th may before my period was due, and i had another test on 20th may, both are negative. I dont have any symptoms at all. Sometimes constipation and sleepiness. Please help me.

  • Yessy May 20, 2014, 2:03 am

    My first AF came one day after my IUD Mirena was removed on 4/13/14. I had a lot of clotting followed by spotting for a good 5-6 days. My current AF or possible IB started 5/13/14. It started with light very minimal light pink spotting (my AF normally is much darker) for 2 days, followed by 2 days of semi heavy bleeding (but mostly when I peed and bright red), then 1 1/2 days of spotting. Blood remained any were from light pink to bright red and much much thinner than regular AF blood. I also have a sly pinching pain in uterus which reminds me of my IB with my first pregnancy. What could this be??

  • becky May 19, 2014, 4:59 am

    Also I’ve still got very sore boobs and light headed am also very tired most of the time am a mom to 2 and had very heavy inplaintion bleeding on them for 4 days but like I said this was only 1 day with clots but spotting on and off only a tiny mucus stain on planty liners

  • becky May 19, 2014, 4:33 am

    Hi I had a few pg tests that said am pregnant but then I bleed very heavy for 1 day with clots then nothing still got all the pregnancy systems don’t no what to think

  • Mae May 2, 2014, 9:21 pm

    I always had regular prds 28 days. My last regular prd was march 19 then i had menstruation again on april 6. I was shocked i was only for 19 days. It was heavy like my normal prd soaked pads for 3days and lessened for the 4th day. If it was a prd my next menstruation should be now May 3, but i dont experience PMS symptoms, my breast dont hurt at all , no cramps. I’m just worried. But i dont experience any pregnancy symptoms whatsoever. Was the last one an implantation bleeding or am i just late because i had an early bleeding than usual? Please help. I also took pregnancy tests on the 4th day of my so called early menstruation and the last April 30, and Both tests were negative. I’m worried please help.

    • DP Nguyen May 11, 2014, 10:44 pm

      It sounds like your periods are out of whack. However, just wait another week and if your period does not come, take another home pregnancy test or go to the doctor for a blood test. Good luck!

  • Trice April 30, 2014, 3:21 pm

    Hello, I have a regular 26 day cycle I had a period 4/03 and my period was do 4/28 but on
    4/27 I started bleeding it started if pink when I wiped so I thought it was a regular period.

In day 3 my period gets heavy but painful on one side then the pain stops. My flow is watery very unusual and my ovulation date was on the 15th but had intercourse on the 16th, 17, and 18th. Please help I am very confused thanks.

    • DP Nguyen May 11, 2014, 10:48 pm

      It might be implantation. Have you taken a home pregnancy test?

  • sneha April 30, 2014, 1:26 am

      One thing i need to mention i have one small fibroid A 1.2×.9 cm is there in my uterus… By have talk to my doctor he suggested me not to worry about that..

    • DP Nguyen May 11, 2014, 10:49 pm

      i think it might be implantation bleeding. take a home pregnancy test or go to the doctor and get a blood pregnancy test.

  • Danni April 25, 2014, 5:15 pm

    My last period was 25th january and until this week I haven’t had any bleeding or anything but for the last few days there has been pink,red blood only when I wipe not sure what it could be

    • DP Nguyen April 29, 2014, 9:11 pm

      You should go to the doctor and get a blood pregnancy test. Also if you are not pregnant, he needs to check your hormone levels to make sure that you are ovulating regularly and that there are not other health problems that are causing you to miss your period.

  • Hopeful April 19, 2014, 10:44 am

    This information is the most clear and useful I found so far. So this is what happened to me. The first day of my last period was on March 25th. It generally lasts from 5 to 7 days. My cycle is between 29 to 31 days. But I have to highlight that on January I had a surgery to remove two dermoid cysts. I have never followed any birth control for the 4 years I have been married. My doctor was sure the cysts were the cause of my infertility, as one of them was really huge and I used to feel a lot pre and post menstrual pain. After the surgery, I started taking prenatal pills on Feb 27th.
    Now what got me to research about this, it was because of the short bleeding I had this week. On Friday 11th I started feeling nausea mostly in the morning, the same sensation continued on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. On Monday I also felt extremely exhausted, that I just wanted to sleep, I also noticed some tenderness in my breasts. Later on the night I saw a pinkish spot when I wiped off. That was strange because my period should come on April 25th. The spot was about 10 days earlier. The spotting changed to brownish like chocolate and on Wednesday it was bright red without clots. It continue on Thursday and still red. But yesterday Friday I did not have at all any spotting. One more thing to note, beside of feeling so tired, I have been so hungry. I am waiting for next week and see if my period comes. Also I making an appointment with my doctor… and yes, hopefully this time, this is true.

    • DP Nguyen April 22, 2014, 9:15 pm

      Good luck with everything! Thanks for visiting my blog!

  • Ash April 14, 2014, 12:41 pm

    Hi! I believe I ovulated between 3/27-3/29. (Unfortunately I went on a plane trip the day I thought I was going to ovulate. I stopped temping for a couple days and my digital OPK test stopped working. Oye.) Anyway, I started having light cramping on 7 dpo (if I ovulated 3/27) which isn’t normal for me, but unfortunately from there I got a light period on 11 dpo (again, IF I ovulated 3/27). Since my husband and I started trying two months ago, my very regular period of 30-31 days has gone down to 26 days. I think the weird thing this time is everything indicates that my luteal phase would be 11 days this cycle or even less… which hasn’t happened before… Anyway, I had a light period for 2 days. I had to use a light flow tampon both days. I spotted clear and pink the 3rd day then stopped. All things considered, could this have been implantation bleeding? Is there still hope?! Thanks for your time!

    • DP Nguyen April 15, 2014, 10:28 am

      I think it might be!

  • dreamer123 April 14, 2014, 9:35 am

    Just one more addition to my previous comment, I mentioned having 2 babies already, however no implantation bleeding, missed period was only thing that prompted me to test. Also wondering since no previous history of implantation b4 could it be possible this time around?

    • DP Nguyen April 15, 2014, 10:36 am

      I think every pregnancy is different. Just because you didn’t have implantation bleeding in the past doesn’t mean it can’t happen if you are pregnant.
      And since periods can be different too, your spotting might be spotting that can occur before a period too. So the only way to know is to test! Since your symptoms sound like regular menstrual symptoms and nipple tenderness can also be a PMS symptom, it’s hard to really know if it’s PMS or you’re pregnant. SO you will have to wait it out and if you don’t get your period, then take a HPT! Good luck~

  • dreamer123 April 14, 2014, 9:18 am

    Hello all.
    I am normally 31-33day cycle. Already had 2 babies. I had slight spotting approx 1wk b4period should start. Now having light pink and a little darker, not much. Doesn’t even come close to soaking it!! Having menstrual cramps same feeling as usual. Only nipple tenderness, not whole breast, though. Normally once af starts sensitivity in nipples are gone. Periods always start with a continuous flow the let up after day 5 or
    6. I’m just not experiencing the norm. Should start approx 1-3 days from today. Usually spotting b4 period is always the day b4 the normal flow. Spotting has so far been the last 3days? I know only a preg test will know for sure, but just looking for an opinion from someone b4 I test. I’m going wait 1 wk to test. A false pos or neg will drive me nuts! Thank you to anyone that takes the time to respond. Would also appreciate Dr’s opinion, as well if possible.

  • Ursula April 12, 2014, 9:15 am

    My last period was on March 19, I had an intercourse on March 28 (3x withdrawal), my cycles are usually 29-31 days long. On April 3rd I had a white, creamy, odorless vaginal discharge (I never have those), my period came this morning (April 12, 7 days before it normally should). The flow is much ligther than usual, the colour of blood is red, it comes out only when I pee (it’s for sure vaginal), but more than spotting would -like a teaspoon each time. It’s been 6 hours since it started and it seems to be slowing down. There is almost no blood on the pad. I’ve had cramping, lower back ache and weak thigh muscles all morning (like when I get my period) but the cramping seems to be stopping now. My periods are always with heavy flow on the first day and much ligther on days 2-4 with spotting on the fifth. Also I’ve never had a period after only 24 days. If it matters, I’ve had a cervical biopsy over two months ago (suspiscion of cervical cancer, the result was negative), but I’ve had a normal period since. Could this be implantation bleeding today?

    • DP Nguyen April 15, 2014, 10:41 am

      Yeah it could be implantation bleeding. Sounds possible.

  • Mary March 30, 2014, 3:57 pm

    Hi, my last period was on February 23, 2014
    I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend March 7, 2014
    and today March 30, 2014 I wiped and there was light blood with
    clear vaginal discharge … could I be pregnant ??
    Also im 19..

  • Amy March 29, 2014, 9:59 pm

    The start of my last period was 03/03/2014. We use the withdrawal method and had sex on 6th, 8th, 9th, 13th, 14th, and 18th. But on 03/06 and 03/12 my bf accidentally released in me. On both occasions I went to the bathroom and “squeezed” out. On 03/25 I had light pinkish blood only when I wiped. 03/26 I stuck in a tampon to see if the flow would be heavier. I usually soak through 4-6 tampons the second through fourth days of my period. Then the flow tapers off and I use 1-3 tampons the next couple of days. Usually lasting average of 5-7 days. Well, the tampon I stuck in on 03/26 never soaked through. When I did remove it at the end of the day, it was only about less then half of what can go on it. Color was reddish brown. I didn’t need to put another one in and when I would wipe is when I would see the blood, which is pinkish brownish in color. Today 03/28 I took a hpt and it came back negative. My normal period should be due around 04/02-04/03. Could it be implantation bleeding or period?
    Also my cycle is 28-30 days and I am 31. Has been that way since I started when I was 12. Please help…..sincerely, confused

    • JescaL. June 6, 2014, 2:40 am

      Hey amy.

      I was reading ur post, and although I’m sure u got ur answer by now, ill answer for anyone who had similar situations. I’m not Dr. But from the research I gathered if ur last cycle had started 03/03 with a 28 to 30 day cycle u should have ovulated about mid month. So having sex around the 18th would have been the time to get pregnant. (The withdrawal method is not sure way to protect against pregnancy bc pre cum sometimes contain sperm) and if he came in you on the 12th then sperm can still live up to 6 days. “Squeezing” out won’t stop those little men from reaching their goal….ur egg. Now 03/26 could have been implantation bleeding bc the fertilized egg can take anywhere between 6 to 12 days to implant. But HCG levels don’t start to really show up until after implantation. If ur test came back neg. 2 days after implantaion,(assuming u implanted on the 26th then tested 2 days later on the 28th) then chances are u tested too early. The only test that could come back with the right results that early after implantation is a blood test. I’m not sure how early after implantation could u test with a urine test, safe bet is to wait a couple days after ur expected period to test again.

    • DP Nguyen March 28, 2014, 12:03 pm

      Do you have normal periods or light periods usually? Wait a week and take another home pregnancy test. You can also go get a blood pregnancy test at the doctor’s office to check for pregnancy hormones in your blood too.

  • Sharon March 26, 2014, 4:36 pm

    Hi There

    My last AF was 26/02/14 I’m pretty sure I Ovulated 14/03 as I had the sticky/stretchy mucus along with cramping down one side, me & my partner had unprotected sex 15th & 16th, 6dpo I started with light pink spotting when I wipe I am now on day 7. A couple of times when I’ve had a bowel moment the spotting got a bit pinker & then settled back down to light pink my AF should’ve started yesterday 25/03 but the spotting is still happening just not as often could this be IB????

    Many Thanks in Advance

    • DP Nguyen March 26, 2014, 10:16 pm

      I think it might be implantation bleeding. It sounds like it. Take a pregnancy test or get a blood pregnancy test. Good luck

  • Lynnsy March 23, 2014, 6:06 pm

    I had an ectopic pregnancy 6 months ago (but was not trying) and now we are ttc – taking the vitamins using ovulation tests etc – I have 26-27 day cycles regularly, LMP was feb 23 and I ovulated march 10th, a little later than I expected but we tried for 6 days prior and the day of. Period did not come on day 26 or 27. Today, day 28, I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. Then I started seeing a very light pink color on toilet paper and started feeling cramps/bloating, plus have maybe been having other pregnancy symptoms but might be in my head – I usually don’t get pms symptoms though. A few hours later the light pink turned to heavier flow and was dark in color. Used one tampon, now the bleeding seems to have subsided. Question is given the ectopic pregnancy history, do I call my doctor tomorrow or wait to see if this is actually a period? And if implantation was today, when would I see positive pregnancy test? Or might it always show negative if it is another ectopic? Thanks. – concerned but may be overanalyzing.

    • DP Nguyen March 25, 2014, 9:57 pm

      I would wait to see if it’s an actual period and then go see your doctor if you’re still worried.

  • Kimberly March 21, 2014, 1:56 pm

    Hello, I am wondering if I am pregnant. I know my last period was at the end of Feb. (don’t know exact date). My Husband and I were together on March 9. This past Tuesday March 18 I had pink on my toilet paper…thinking I was starting my period. It was only pink when I went potty. I never spotted on the panty liner. It was very light, and the next day it turned brown. I have had Nothing ever since. I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. Do you think I could be?

    • DP Nguyen March 22, 2014, 3:45 pm

      Sounds like it could be implantation bleeding. Wait another week and if you don’t have your period, take another home pregnancy test and if you still are having spotting and are worried, making an appt to see your gyno.

    Hi! I am in a bit of a confusion over whether I am having Implantation bleeding or if it is just my period. I have an ovulation tracking (not sure it is 100% accurate) but I was to ovulate March 1-7, my husband and I were trying to conceive during the 5 & 6 of March. While waiting for the dreaded two weeks pass I have had some sumptoms of pregnancy (not sure if it is all in my head or if it is for real!) I have had tender breast/nipples, sensitive to smell (my sister had lasagne cooked and I almost threw up everywhere) some headaches and some pains in my lower stomach like something pulling from my bellybutton downwards and was very emotional. So on my 5 DPO i decided to take a test, it came back negative, which I kind of expected I still had 5 days for my period. So I must say that my period tracker is always accurate I either have my period the day it tells me or early the next morning. But now that it is 2 days before my period I am suddenly experiencing some bleeding. I am not sure if my period came early or if it is implantation bleeding? The blood is like a dark red and so far it is a light flow. But I am have extremely bad cramps, back pains and feeling bloated. Any advise? Thanks!

    • Niki March 18, 2014, 4:01 pm

      Sorry! I meant to say on my 9 DPO, not 5!

    • DP Nguyen March 19, 2014, 1:14 pm

      You will have to wait to see if your flow gets any heavier. If in a few days, you still are having light flow, take another home pregnancy test as this might be implantation spotting. But in a week, if you are still having symptoms and no menstrual period, call your doctor and get a blood pregnancy test.

  • Sarah March 17, 2014, 4:22 pm

    Hi there – MY husband and I have been trying to have a baby for a few months. I was away on vacation last month but my periods are always regular. i have a 28 – 30 day cycle. I was supposed to get my period on the 13th of this month but instead I got one initial red spotting (once) and then just brown discharge followed by a little darker brown almost black looking for 4 days. I usually get brown spotting leading up to my period that lasts for 2 or 3 days but then its followed by a heavy flow. My stomache felt heavy..so did my uterus area.Today, the 17th, I felt a lot of cramps..not the normal painful ones I get but heavy..kinda pinching. Light bleeding but not heavy like it should be. When I wipe it’s red..but usually I go through at least 20 pads during my period. I get 2-3 days of heavy flow. The cramps feel like their weighing me down…they don’t hurt as they usually do. Wondering if I might be pregnant..but the test results I took last night showed up as negative. Any help on this would be wonderful. I have no other symptoms of being pregnant except a little more gassy than usual and indigestion.

    • DP Nguyen March 17, 2014, 9:17 pm

      I think you might be pregnant… I’d take another home pregnancy test in a few days. If you still don’t get your period next few weeks, go make an appointment and get a home pregnant test.

  • rachel March 16, 2014, 6:05 pm

    Hi, my hubby and I have been ttc for almost 2 years in june. In june of 2012 I had surgery for endometriosis. My cycles never changed they stayed 28 days. This cycle however, has been very different. I got my period feb 9. I had pos ovulation on feb 21. My hubby and I did the baby dance on 20 and 21 of feb. About 8 days later j had brown discharge kne tome in mornin. Then a week before period was due had bad cramps breasts hurt and nausea and fatigue. On march 7 the day af was to arrive becuz of early ovulation it never showed. On feb 9 I started have pink discharge only when I wipped in the early mornin. Later a brown like light flow, only needed panty liner all day the next it turned brown/burgendy yet still only on liner all day. After that for 5 days I had brown yet very very light spottying. I am unsure because I have taken an hpt and had a pos 2 weeks ago I started bleeding took 1 sence and neg yet it was in afternoon. I am scared my endo is coming back for mh symptoms where almost the same except my bleeding was very bright red and lasted 5 days heaving flow. And my usuall af is 3 days, day 1 spotty day 2 heavy flow and day 3 spotty and gone. All bllod is a bright red usually but not this one. Am I pregos or is it something else.

    • DP Nguyen March 17, 2014, 9:15 pm

      Since you have the history with endometriosis, I would make an appointment with your OB.GYN and describe your symptoms. You may also ask her for a blood pregnancy test to check for pregnancy too.

      • rachel March 21, 2014, 2:02 pm

        Hi I saw my ob she said it sounds like a misscarry. She did a few blood test and vaginal exam. Blood work came back with an hcg level of 13 because it low it mostly likely was or is a misscarry. My questions is will ur prego symptoms increase or decrease because mine have gotten worse ine the last 3 days or so. Feeling bloated and sense of smell is stronger to as well as nausea and now I loose my kibbles and bits at certain foods. Could it be that the 8 day brown spotty was implantationbleed and we tested to earlie. Today (Friday) I gave more blood to check. Oh yea my endo has not come back so I am very happy for that. I was just curious what ur oppinion is. Thank you much.

        • DP Nguyen March 22, 2014, 3:44 pm

          If you are miscarrying, you will still have pregnancy symptoms for awhile after you miscarry. hCG levels should probably go back to zero within a few weeks, and your symptoms should go away by then. However, some women, it can take four to six weeks before your levels decrease to zero and you can have nausea and “pregnancy symptoms” until your levels decrease. If you’re still having problems and you are worried, talk to OB and she will be able to alleviate your fears since she is more familiar with your medical history. I am really sorry. Spotting can be implantation bleeding, but it can also be early pregnancy miscarriage (or a chemical pregnancy).

          I hope you feel better.

  • Kelly March 16, 2014, 1:55 pm

    My partner and I are TTC
    My periods are usually very heavy, with sore and heavy breasts a week before, and cramping just before and during.
    I am over a week late at this point, have had no PMS symptoms at all.
    At the end of last week(13th) I had brown spotting,only small but very dark- the way I would usually have at the end of my period and very mild cramping. The following day (14th) I had blood mixed with the brown, not even a fraction of how my periods are, but this was only with one trip to the bathroom and it then went back to brown. Yesterday brown, and this morning, almost completely gone, and now this evening its completely gone.

    I’ve read a million different stories online that this could either be implantation bleeding, or a messed up period.
    If it’s implantation bleeding how long would I wait to test? and if it isn’t IB, do I count this as a full period to track my fertility window?

    Help please!

    • DP Nguyen March 17, 2014, 9:14 pm

      oooh, it does sound like implantation bleeding. Take your home pregnancy test the week of your missed period. So if this is roughly around when you should be having your period, I would take a home pregnancy test. Check the sensitivity and choose a home pregnancy test that’s got a high sensitivity as they are more accurate early on.

  • Beth March 15, 2014, 11:55 pm

    I was supposed to get my period on 3/14, and I have a brown tinge that has lasted 2 days so far … I usually bleed like Niagara Falls within the first day of my period and have been very regular – every 28 days. I am going to be 43 in May, so I do not want to get my hopes up, but could this be implantation bleeding??? I have had very little flow … only when I wipe or have used a tampon. What are your thoughts?

    • Dana reynolds March 16, 2014, 9:38 am

      Hi i had been haven unprotected sex on febuary 17 whicth was the last day of my period i had unprotected sex again a week later and on and i also had sex 14 days befour my next period was supposed to start my period was soppsed to start on march 14….. and i been feeling nasaus,cramping and tingly feeling in breast i been extemly hungery even after eating a full meal and some foods were to strong for me to eat it taste different some smelles we strong and as well as headaches freqent urine going to the bathroom.alot i was vomiting too i had some adomnal pain too soon after i started haven white discharg and my period started on march 14 but it was different i was spotting with just dots of pinkish blood when i pee it wasnt freqent like my normal period it was on and off so lightmy normal period us heaveybut this time it was so light i didnt really need a pad there was nothing much and

      • DP Nguyen March 17, 2014, 9:11 pm

        Wow, it sounds like you are pregnant. The pinkish blood sounds like implantation bleeding… And with all your symptoms you’re experiencing – from the nausea and the hunger, I think you are pregnant. Also, sounds like you had unprotected sex when you were ovulating. Take a home pregnancy test and make an appointment with your doctor. Good luck.

    • Dana reynolds March 16, 2014, 9:44 am

    • DP Nguyen March 17, 2014, 9:10 pm

      It may have been implantation bleeding (but take a home pregnancy test!)… but it may also be the start of perimenopause too…

  • Jen March 15, 2014, 11:38 pm

    Ok, I had my period late in the month of February. I started February 10 and it lasted the usual 5 days. I normally start around the 6th. I had sex on Feb 24/25, using the today sponge but it was multiple times. I had cramping, bloating, gassy feeling pressure and constipation about 4 days later, I NEVER get constipated. Since my cycle was off, I had no idea when my next period would be due. An online chart guesstimated that I would have ovulated sometime between February 23-March 5 and that my period would begin sometime after the 16th. On 3/14 I started bleeding in the morning, bright red blood and it was a pretty heavy flow so I figured it was my period but today 3/15, the flow is super light and a dark red/brown color. I took a test on 3/12 and it was neg. My question is, is it my period or is there still a possibility that I could be pregnant?

    • DP Nguyen March 17, 2014, 9:09 pm

      If you had heavy flow on the first day, then you had your period. Sometimes, our periods can fluctuate on the severity and flow. Some months, you might have a lighter period – one heavy day and then lighter days following it. Other months you may have heavier bleeding for longer. I don’t think you’re pregnant.

  • Kia Members March 14, 2014, 6:54 am

    Hi Dr.,
    Me and my husband have been ttc. Feb. 17, 2014 was the first day of my MC. We had intercourse from March 3-6, 2014. I ovulated on the 3rd. Since 6dpo, I’ve had mild cramping on just my right side on and off until 11dpo today. On 9dpo, I started to spot brown and pink blood that filled the liner. It was like a gush. Then 11dpo it turned red like a MP. In your opinion, implantation or MC?
    My next cycle isn’t until March 17th.

    • DP Nguyen March 14, 2014, 11:51 pm

      It is really hard to say. How much blood did you have? If it was a lot, then it may be spotting leading up to your period. If your period doesn’t start, I’d recommend you take a home pregnancy test. Just be patient and wait until your missed period. Best of luck

  • Jakki March 13, 2014, 4:40 pm

    Looking for some advice! My last period started on Valentines day and I have a regular 27 day cycle. I had sex on Saturday 1st. The following Sunday week I was feeling awful AF cramps all day but nothing happened. I had a watery pink show when wiping on Tuesday evening and nothing since. Still have AF type cramps but more waves of cramps and twinges rather than the continuous cramps I would usually get. Could the show I had on Tuesday have been my period? My periods are usually heavy and last 2-3 days. Thanks.

    • DP Nguyen March 14, 2014, 11:52 pm

      The watery pink show may have been implantation bleeding. If your period is usually heavy and you miss your period this month, take a home pregnancy test…

  • grace March 13, 2014, 7:36 am

    Hi…need some help…my last mentrual perio was february 22..has 4-5 days period. I had 28 days cycle…we had contact wiht my husband feb. 28 and march 5..then the morning march 6 i had blood in my panty..it didn’t last long…then on march 9 i had spotting…we had contact again with my husband last night march 12..then today march 13 had again spotting with clot…what could this be?…thanks

    • DP Nguyen March 14, 2014, 11:54 pm

      I’d take a home pregnancy test when you miss your period… but bleeding after sex can be caused a number of things. Maybe there was friction or not enough lubrication during sex that could cause you spot afterwards. I’d wait to your missed period and take a test.

  • Julie March 12, 2014, 11:15 am

    One more thing i am not noticing any sign of pregnancy like they said cramping vomiting etc etc except the thing is that m lazy as usual.I dont wan tis pregnancy to hapen .Pls suggest me what should i do to end it?I mean ill do take a test again

    • DP Nguyen March 12, 2014, 11:43 pm

      You should take another home pregnancy test, and if it’s negative, take another one at your next scheduled period date. Go to the doctor for a blood pregnancy test if you are still concerned. Best of luck!

      • Julie March 16, 2014, 5:21 am

  • Damz March 11, 2014, 7:50 am

    I had unprotected sex a week and half week before my period was supposed to come. My cycle alters between 27-29days so it came early on the 27day Mark (sunday feb 9) which was my normal time when my period used to be consistent. It came like a regular one with clotting and all but after 1 1/2 -2 days it completely stopped. I had a negative pregnancy test on Wednesday mar 5. What could this mean?

    • DP Nguyen March 12, 2014, 11:46 pm

      If you had a period, it’s probably just that you had a shorter period than normal. Try not to worry. You aren’t pregnant. Sometimes, your period can be a little off but if it’s a one time occurrence, it’s nothing to worry about.

  • Brooke March 10, 2014, 12:57 pm

    My normal flow is about 4-5 days around the 28th, i started 7 days late only to have a 2 day period, the first day i had little clots but half way through the second day it was only spotting, now on the 3rd day its only when i wipe. My boyfriend and i stopped using protection 2 months ago almost and my last period was in January. Implantation or just a messed up period?

    • DP Nguyen March 12, 2014, 11:47 pm

      Sounds like just a messed up period this month. It’s fine for your period to last only 3 days.

  • Tanisha March 8, 2014, 11:13 pm

    Hello Dr.. I’m a 26 cycle woman.. Who is about 3 days late on my period. I was due to come in march 6… experiencing subtle cramps along with spotting with colors from browns to reds. I have taken 2 home pregnancy tests both were negative. Should I be taking the test on the last day of my would be period or the day after. Me and my guy have been active for a while now and will be so thrilled to be pregnant.im almost certain BC my period is always normal!

    • DP Nguyen March 9, 2014, 10:48 pm

      Wait another week and take the test again if you don’t get your period. It is possible that you’re pregnant, or that you are just late this month.

  • Maria March 6, 2014, 7:00 pm

    Hi Dr. Nguyen,

    I am 40 yrs old, with 4 daughters and my youngest is 6. I am a very regular 28-day cycle and this is the first time I’ve had this kind of spotting before my next period. So, my 1st day of my last cycle was on Feb. 16th and I’m supposed to have it again on March 15th. My husband and I had sex with condom on Feb. 26th. Last Tuesday, March 3rd, I started spotting (pinkish with very small clots of blood throughout the day) and it was only visible when wiping with tissue. Then, yesterday, it was very brown and it got on my panty liner and at night, a little red again. This morning (day 3 of spotting), it was brown and red again but towards the afternoon, it became redder and a little more than the previous 2 days. It’s actually getting on my pads now but nothing like constant flow like a normal period. From Tuesday night, I’ve been reading up on implantation bleeding (IB) and I’ve been thinking if I could be pregnant and experiencing this. The articles I’ve been reading says IB could be anywhere from a few hours to 2-3 days. Today is the 3rd day and the spotting got a little more. So I am just confused. Please advice. Thank you so much.

    • DP Nguyen March 9, 2014, 10:50 pm

      Have you taken a home pregnancy test? At your age, it is possible that you are also entering into perimenopause.

  • jaz March 6, 2014, 5:48 pm

    Hi there, so my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex about a week about. I started spotting lightly the following day and thought that my period had come earlier than usual. I have been spotting now/ lightly bleeding on and off for 4 days now, with little to no cramping. My period is not on a normal schedule since i had a baby 10 months ago.. However when i do get my period it is heavy and a lot of cramping.. Should i be worried?

    • DP Nguyen March 9, 2014, 10:50 pm

      I wouldn’t be too worried but you should take a home pregnancy test, just in case.

  • May March 6, 2014, 8:46 am

    Good Day, I had spotting for 3 days only in the morning, then my period came a week earlier than normal, however it lasted a day only, could you please assist?

    • DP Nguyen March 9, 2014, 10:51 pm

      Take a home pregnancy test. You may have had implantation bleeding.

  • Naomi February 24, 2014, 7:24 am

    I missed my first day of my period, started spotting the day after then was only light bleeding for 2 days then stopped today been trying for a baby for 7months I have a period tracker on my phone always been regular I usually have hevy bleeding for 5 days or 4 ive never spotted before starting at all and it was pink and brown the first day then the last 2 days turned very bright red then stopped it was watery and stringy sory for all the info but I need advice

  • Denise February 21, 2014, 3:57 pm

    I had my period the first week in December. Then didn’t get my next period until the last week in January. I have been having unprotected sex since January 25th. I was nauseas for a day & on one different day was very sensitive to smells. Yesterday I started spotting and cramping, & thought it might be implantation bleeding so I took a pregnancy test but it came out negative. I figured I took it too early but today the bleeding has become heavier. Is it unlikely I’m pregnant?

  • Janna Rayah February 19, 2014, 2:42 am

    Hi am a 28 days cycle. i had a unprotected sex recently. Am having a light bleeding 4 days before my next period. Could i be pregnant? Pls help.

  • Rex J February 15, 2014, 2:47 pm

    I am having the 28days cycle,right after my last period,I had sex with my boyfriend although he used the pull out method and a day after ovulation,I had another sex but after he pulled out & release,he didn’t put it back inside me.I’m expecting my period on the 5th of this month but it started on the 2nd,it was little, watery and bright red,the flow was very slow & it lasted for 3 days.I have never experience this kind of menstruation before,I had menstrual cramp for 2days & it hurts so badly.pls is this normal or is it implantation bleeding? Am really confuse

    • DP Nguyen March 3, 2014, 1:45 pm

      If it was light bleeding, it could have been implantation bleeding. The pull-out method is not a reliable a birth control method so you could be pregnant. Take a home pregnancy test.

  • Joyriss February 15, 2014, 2:28 pm

    I was suppose to start menstrating on the 15 of feb but it started as early as 12 of feb.the blood is very light and watery and the flow is too slow,do u think I am pregnant?

    • DP Nguyen March 3, 2014, 1:46 pm

      It could have been a light period or you could be pregnant and it was implantation bleedng. Have you taken a home pregnancy test? Good luck

  • ashlee ball February 10, 2014, 10:55 am

    I am trying to get pregnant to have a baby for someone else and im not due for my period for another week or so but im having some medium to heavy bleeding with some medium size blood clots and some mild cramping….I have been nauseous a lot but ive done a blood test and a home pregnancy test and both were negative….whats going on…any inaight anyone?

  • clair February 9, 2014, 3:21 am

    I am becoming increasingly concerned by all of this, I have 4 children, 3 girls of which I tested positive with a hpt on my first day of missed period. my son I didn’t even realise I was pregnant until I was 18 wks as monthly cycle hadn’t gone back to normal after I had my daughter a few mths prior.
    my youngest is now 3, and although myself and hubby wernt trying for a baby we wasn’t preventing it either, kinda letting nature takes its course.
    my monthly cycle is bang on every 28 days,14/11/13-12/12/13-9/1/14 which would make my next period due on the 6/02/14.
    the last few days I have done nothing but research and its making me worse as getting no answers.
    last sunday 2/2/14 (day 24) I experienced a pink discharge followed by a mild blood flow, only requiring one pad all day (sorry tmi) but it was nothing like a period, and only lasted the one day. on the Monday there was nothing at all which shocked me as I thought was start of my cycle 4 days early. I am usually on my period for 5 days with the first and fifth day light and 3 days in between really heavy, needing tampons and pads its that bad, and worse at night time. but this lasted just one day, no clots just fresh cut your finger like blood, so Monday nothing, tues nothing, Wednesday nothing, Thursday was my expected day of period and nothing until evening when I had a small spotting of blood, and Friday morning small brown spotting then nothing more. my doctor has refered me for a scan but pregnancy tests are showing negative, I did one this morning, first morning urine, just a cheap 10mlu strip test from amazon but figured don’t want to be spending a fortune on tests until I know and then will get expensive one just to clarify, I am really worried as ive never been late before without a reason behind it

    • Lethas February 13, 2014, 6:18 am

      It sounds like you are pregnant Clair :-)

  • Amanda February 6, 2014, 10:32 pm

    Hi. I was wondering if what is currently happening to me could be possibly be pregnancy? I am nearly 13 days past my usual due date of menstrual cycle. I have experienced some very mild cramping and a few times when i went to the bathroom there was tiny traces of blood when I wiped. I’ve been so tired today that I had to lay down for a little while. I’ve been very active and one one think that much activity (dancing, house cleaning etc…) would make a woman start her flow. Anyway, I took a couple of tests last week, but I glanced at the first one and it read neg. then walked by it the following day and there was another line. I used First Response. I took another one and the same thing happened. No changes until 24 hours later.
    Now, I have tender breasts, some bloating but not much, very fatigued, and I only get nauseous when I eat. I’m not sure what is going on since I haven’t been pregnant for 7 years.
    Any Advice? Please and Thank You.

  • mary February 6, 2014, 9:22 pm

    Here is my story. I got off my bc pills on September, and I have always had regular 32-day cycles. My last period was on 12/24/13, and it lasted its normal 4 days. I was supposed to get it last month on 01/24/14, the latest on 01/25/14. I had no signs of getting my period suring this time, and I started to wonder. So I let a couple of days pass by, took a couple of hpt and all negative. So when I was 5 days late, I called my obgyn and went to see him on the 01/31/14. I did a pregnancy test there and negative. He said that I probably ovulated late and conceived late, that is why the tests are coming ourt negative, or I probably did not ovulate, which is something that has never happened to me before. He said that if I did not get my period by tomorrow 02/07/14, to go in and see him on 02/10/14. The question is, can I be pregnant?

  • jessie January 25, 2014, 10:49 pm

    • tramaine January 29, 2014, 11:40 am

      Hi, I’m experiencing the same exact thing. Last period was 1/7/14 and i had sex around oulation which was on the 25th of this month. This morning 1/29/14 around 1am this light bleeding started and my period not due for about 11 days. No cramps, no pregnacy symptoms either. I never experienced this with any other pregnancy. Just sounds alot like implantation bleeding at least from what I’ve read.

    Hello, I have a few questions, me and my partner are trying for a pregnancy. On 1/14/14 we had unprotected sex and twice again after that. It’s been about a week and 3 days after
    And I am having cramps but there also in my upper abdominal , around my belly button, mostly just below., something I have never felt before. Yesterday I was spotting, as a light pink, and it’s slowly got heavier. I have an irregular period ever sense I stopped taking birth control about 5 months ago, but this one is slightly lighter then usual. I’m experiencing nausea after I eat, and i am eating more. Could I be pregnant? Please help???

    My First Day of my Menstraul Cycle was 12/21/2013… I am trying to get pregnant and I don’t know what to do about my irregular periods. Sometimes my cycle can be 25 days to 33 days. It’s so hard to keep up with this. Makes me super sad since my fertility days should’ve been 01/05-01/12. On 01/21 thinking I missed my period from the 28 day cycle calendar I took a cheap dollar store pregnancy test and it came out negative and I was trying to make the excuse up that it was because it was night time and I drank a lot of water that it could’ve possibly diluated my urine. 01/22 I started having a light brownish blood when wiping and then it went away. Same with the following morning, Light brownish blood when wiping then it went away. Well 01/23 I went to work to use the restroom and it’s a darker brown and a little bit heavier. I don’t want to get my hopes up and I am super nauseous still. Should I wait to take another pregnancy test or wait to see how this flow is?

  • Kare January 20, 2014, 1:20 pm

    I am 39, lmp 12/24/13 – 2 days only and normally 4. On January 10 started very light spotting for 7 days (only when wipe) to light bleeding (not even pad worth in one day) for 4 days to nothing. Only small sized tissues seen and very mild cramps. My cycles are 25-26 days long and I was actively ttc during fertile window.

    I have had 1 very successful, issue free pregnancy 10 years ago and a couple of years ago I lost one of my ovaries and tubes to a 6cm cyst.

    The bleeding has stopped right when I period should have started and I still have same mild cramps even though bleeding stopped. Should I go to the ER today? I have a blood requisition for tomorrow, but wonder if I shouldn’t wait on regular DR getting results. I am sooo worried of losing the only parts I have left to conceive. Thanks for your consideration

  • Ashley January 14, 2014, 4:07 pm

    Hi I’m starting to worry I woke up this morning to what I thought I started my period it was kinda heavy and bright red but I haven’t bled since not spotting not even when I wipe could this be implentation bleeding or miscarry I’m really concerned Any advice would be greatlyaappreciated thanks

  • Jennifer January 13, 2014, 7:18 pm

    I am an almost 37 year old woman, I have 3 kids, the youngest being a 2 year old who is still nursing. I noticed, starting in November, that my periods were becoming very heavy and painful. Then in December, my husband and I had sex about a week before when I was supposed to start my period. I bled bright red blood during sex and then nothing. About 3 maybe 4 days later, I started my period, which was very heavy with clots. This month it has happened again. We had sex last night, I bled quite a bit, bright red blood, slightly crampy today with brown blood when I wipe and I am supposed to start in about a week.
    Should I be worried? I have never bled before in between periods and the stuff I have been reading online has me a little scared. Do you have any idea what could be going on?

    • Jennifer January 13, 2014, 7:20 pm

      Wanted to add I am not on any type of birth control as I have read that can cause bleeding.

    • DP Nguyen January 14, 2014, 10:41 am

      I would go see your doctor to see what is causing you to have such heavy bleeding after sex. It could be a polyp, fibroid, endometriosis … any number of things. I really would go get it checked out. The very painful and heavy periods, spotting between periods, and the pain during/after sex are very common signs of endometriosis (which is very common in women in their 30s and 40s). It might also be a sign of early menopause or perimenopause… Any number of things… so I would recommend that you go see your gynecologist! I hope you feel better! and good luck!

      • Jennifer January 14, 2014, 2:14 pm

        Those are the things I read I about! I already called my gyn and left a message saying I need an appt. so hopefully it will be soon.
        Thank you so much for replying! I am just glad to hear someone else say it may be something and it’s not in my head! :)

        • sanober June 16, 2015, 12:58 am

          I m 26 and I got only two days period its only pinkish and brownish then end no cramping no symptoms am I pregnent?

  • Andres20 January 12, 2014, 12:28 pm

    Hi my periods are irregular…last month I had my period on the 8th Dec and I lasted 5 days. I had unprotected sex a lot with my boyfriend through out the month every week up to January 5th and 6th. It wasn’t as a heavy as my regular period. It was a little less. At the end of my period I noticed I started feeling this sharp pain in my lower abdomen n lower back. The pain was so intense had to go hospital. For the entire month after that I started feeling very sick…like wanting to vomit…sore breast, fequently peeing, headach, lower back pain, eating a lot, couldn’t stand certain smells and was smelling things no one else could smell, I took a pregnancy test close to when my next period was due but it came back negative. I started bleeding on the 9th of January was feeling a little crampy at first but it started of where I noticed it by just wiping with a tissue then a while after the same day it came down more and a little heavier with blood clots which does not happen on my first day of my period so its not normal to me the first two days of bleeding a little heavy it finally started to ease up on the third day with no clots and today is the 4th day and its lesser than yesterday. I have been having a pain in my left side as well just one spot like a needle pinching me and I cannot lay on my belly cause it hurt so I lay on my side. Should I take another hpt or I may not be pregnant and its just normal. Thnk you

    • jasmine January 12, 2014, 9:24 pm

      Hey I’m experiencing the samething but only its a slight difference my last period was dec 13 I had sex with my boyfriend dec 27th which was my fertilty day and ovalution day after that I felt very horrible frequent headaches nauseated urine color changing stomach aching , fatigue just feeling like I was pregnant for about two weeks I took a home preg test and it came back neg. Well my period was suppose too come on jan10 it came on the 9th its so not like my normal period when I first start my period its heavy but it started spotting and it was like that for hours my bleeding didn’t pick up so I went too the er and at that time it was nearly gone off until the started cather and papping me it made a little more moderate flow start but I don’t have any clots just runny blood and a couple strands behind it like implanting blood … today is the fourth day this has been happening and if it was my reg period it would have been going off but this is still going on . Is this implantating blood and I may be pregnant

      • DP Nguyen January 14, 2014, 10:47 am

        Take another home pregnancy test. If it’s negative, then it’s possible that you may be experiencing a very early miscarriage, which is why you are bleeding is so crazy. If you are still worried, go see a gynecologist and get their medical advice. Good luck!

    • DP Nguyen January 14, 2014, 10:49 am

      Take another home pregnancy test. It sounds to be with all your symptoms that you were pregnant. Maybe you tested too early? Maybe it’s an early miscarriage?
      If you are worried, you should go see your gynecologist!

  • Marlene January 11, 2014, 12:07 am

    Hello. Well i had my period on dec. 24 and today i noticed i had some pinkish brownish discharge im wondering if its my period or ib my period isnt due until the 20 of this month can you please help

    • DP Nguyen January 14, 2014, 10:50 am

      Sounds like you are just spotting…

      • Marlene January 18, 2014, 12:27 am

        I spotted for four days which is unusual for me and ive been cramping ever since i spotted it feels like im going to start my period but nothing

  • Ashley January 9, 2014, 10:33 pm

    HELP! I dont know what to think. I had my mirena removed on the 1st of aug, got my period in the next couple days after that and its been a normal flow and on the 28 day cycle almost to the exact day. So far so good. Well the hubbs and I are having unprotected sex, hoping if its suppose to happen its suppose to happen. Well no baby so far. BUT… this month in dec I got my normal period on the 1st, which lasted about five days, THEN… I woke upon the morning of the 20th bleeding, a darker blood, thick, and I was very crampy. This lasted throughout the day and maybe into the next. And then stopped. So.. my question.. what was that? A period? Implantation bleeding? My next period was due around the 1st or 2nd. Its the 9th.. and nothing. I took a hpt and it was negative. Does it awz show if your a week late? Or do some ppl take longer? Help!

    • DP Nguyen January 14, 2014, 10:57 am

      Mirena removal can cause all kinds of lots of abnormal bleeding patterns and even make some women think they are having pregnancy symptoms. Have your periods become normal again after the mirena removal? You should take a home pregnancy test again next week, if you still don’t get your period. Sometimes, it does take longer for home pregnancy tests to show up positive; it depends on the level of hCG in your blood stream and if it’s been passed to your urine yet, and if the HPT you are taking is sensitive enough. Implantation bleeding is usualyl light – not thick, darker blood like you are describing. maybe it was an early miscarriage?

  • Nancy January 9, 2014, 3:56 pm

    Hi sweedy, good evening. I’ve had irregular period for sometime until the last two months which has been 28days( Nov.18th and Dec. 15 ‘the start dates of my last two periods). I had unprotected sex on the 25th Dec-1st Jan.2014. If i didn’t get pregnant, then i should have my period on 11th Jan, but went to the washroom this morning and there is red blood, its not really flowing but stains tissue when i wipe and its being cramping since morning. Did pregnancy test but its not really clear( the test band is very very very faint)., please i need help, Thanks.

  • Nikki January 9, 2014, 3:50 pm

    I have a regular cycle beginning on the 10th of every month. My husband and I are trying to conceive so we had sex before and during ovulation. On the 7th I had slight cramping, no where near what I normally have. I have had bleeding for the last 3 days but it is no where near what my normal bleeding is. Generally I can’t have a regular tampon in for more than 4 hours the first few days. This is not the case. Could this be implantation bleeding?

    • DP Nguyen January 8, 2014, 2:23 pm

      Hmm, sounds like it might have been implantation bleeding and you may be pregnant. You need to take a home pregnancy test, and if it is positive, schedule an appointment with your doctor. Good luck,

          Sometime spotting is normal in early pregnancy, or if you are irregular, you may just be spotting… Did you take the home pregnancy test?

          • jackey March 3, 2014, 4:03 am

            Hi mam, I had my period on 30 December 2013, was suppose to start again on 27 January 2014, I only started today 3 march 2014, I did several pregnancy test even blood tests and all was negative. I have very bad pain today and my period is heavy but not like normal dark blood, this is pinkish redish. We are trying to conceive and drink folic acid daily. My breasts are big and painful. What might this be?

            • DP Nguyen March 3, 2014, 1:41 pm

              Unfortunately, this is just your period. Sometimes, period flow can be heavier month to month, and the color/shade of red can also vary month to month. Sore and swollen breasts are also a normal PMS symptom so I thin you are just having your period. If you are worried, contact your doctor or healthcare provider.

  • Kiersten Patton January 8, 2014, 11:14 am

    Hello and good morning! I really need u your help! My husband and I have been trying for awhile now! My last cycle was on November 27, 2013 and the next one was suppose to be due on December 25th!! And so I have had the headaches. .nausea. .sore tender breasts… mood swings. .cravings, etc. Then I got sick with bronchitis on January 1st and my cycle/maybe implantation bleeding on the 2nd! So that makes my cycle 9 days late!!! But I spotted for almost 2 days pinkish brownish color to actually bleeding red blood for 2 days then stopped. So I’m just curious could I be pregnant? ? I’ve taken 2 test that were faint lines from being 5 and 7 days late on my cycle! And another one when I got sick but was negative. I’m so confused because we are hoping but having that. . I’m not sure cycle or implantation bleeding??? We even made sure we were successful on my ovulation day which was December 11th!! Can you please shed some light on what to do because we’re hoping to have our second child!!! Thank you so in advance!

    • DP Nguyen January 8, 2014, 11:30 am

      To get a definite answer, I would go to your doctor and get a blood pregnancy test.

      A faint line can indicate pregnancy – there was a trace amount of hcG in your blood, however, but since you got a negative test later, you may have tested too early and it was a chemical pregnancy.

      Being sick can also mess up your period. It’s also possible that you had a lighter than normal period.

      Take another home pregnancy test (get one that’s very sensitive, preferably one with a very low sensitive of 10miu/ml ) and see what it says. But I would get a blood test to just double check.

      Good luck

  • Amber January 5, 2014, 11:59 pm

    So i have a question. My periods are very out of wack. I haven’t had one in a year and a half. Then all of a sudden on the 1st i went to the bathroom and noticed i bled through the panites. I freaked out and was thankful i had started so i thought. After that it started to become light and turn from redish pink to brown and then stopped. Few hours later i started spotting again. I took two pregnant test both NEGATIVE. So my question is does that sounds like implantaion bleeding? When is the best time to take another test?

    • Amber January 6, 2014, 12:00 am

      * I spotted after that for about 3 days and then stopped for a couple hours and then i started spotting again.

  • Erica December 29, 2013, 8:14 am

    My period is ALWAYS every 28 days, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex in November and this Month I was suppose to start my period on the 24th, but on the 18th, six days before my expected period I started bleeding, it only lasted for two days and was pretty lite, and another thing I NEVER have cramps when I am on my period but this time I was having some minor cramping but only on my left side. Could this be a sign that I am indeed pregnant? :) The only sign I am having now is some nausea, but there is also a flu going around so maybe I am getting it…? And I have had some odd rash on the upper part of my legs it is red and sort of itchy but not too much, it just appeared like 3 weeks ago. My nipples have been a little sore, but not so much so that I really notice it, only when they are touched. Should I get a HPT or is just a waste? I have thought I was pregnant so many times and I always get that mean ol’ negative staring back at me :( I am 29 so I am so so ready to be a mommy :)

    • Erica December 29, 2013, 8:18 am

      Also, the other day when I wiped I had a round slimy ball a little bigger than a pea on the toilet paper and it was the color of an egg white…so am I experiencing implantation or just ovulation?

  • momof1 December 28, 2013, 10:49 pm

    okay so last period Dec 2nd. Ovulation date Dec 16th. sex on ovulation date. Next period should start on Monday Dec 30th but bleeding began Friday morning December 27th. My period is always normal! I have bright red blood and the most pain is in my left side.. def not normal for me at all. have only filled two pads in a day. bright red blood at time of wiping but it has lessened as the night has come to an end. so I have high hopes that it is in fact implantation bleeding for me.

  • sammy December 17, 2013, 3:53 am

    I have always had very irregular period ever since (3-7 months apart usually) which is really strange I know. I went to the gynaecologist a few months ago and she said I couldn’t take a blood test yet due to being on anti depressants and thus affecting the results or something. But I’m sexually active – although I do use protection… The last time I had sex was 2 fridays ago and now I’m cramping and bleeding lightly. Could this be implantation bleeding??? :/

    Many thanks,

    • DP Nguyen January 5, 2014, 11:22 pm

      It might just be your period about to come, or it could be implantation bleeding. I am not sure why your gynecologist said you couldn’t take a blood test because of your anti depressants. Was it a hormonal test or a pregnancy test that she wanted you to take?

  • Crystal December 16, 2013, 6:57 pm

    I didnt take a test today when i said today that was dec. 9. This is an older post i put on another site but did not get answers. Thanks for your help in advanced

  • Crystal December 16, 2013, 6:53 pm

    Please help. Is it too late for implantation bleeding? Can you have it after a missed period?
    Hello I am really confused and need some advice. ive been reading many many post about implantation bleeding, and there are so many women that are going thru the same thing and those whom have already had the experience, it is very different for everyone.
    here is my situation.
    I am 24 yrs old. i have been with my bf for 10 yrs. we are not trying to get pregnant but its always a possibility since we dont ever ever use any type of protection just the pull out method. but we would be really happy to be pregnant if it happened!! Sometimes i think theres something wrong with me or him, but i guess hes just really good at pulling out lol.
    Anyway my periods have always been regular 28-30 cycle. But i think when i was about 17-19 (not really sure) i was late for a period in Nov. almost 3 weeks but i did get it and it came in the same month just really late.
    i did take a couple pg. obviouly negative.
    So that was the only time ever my period was really late.
    I was sitting around one day and remembered that i didnt remember getting a period for Nov. i looked at my calender but the last time i wrote my period down was Aug 17 so i counted foward till Nov and it was supose to come on the 8 of nov! I took 2pg. test the end of Nov and one today with morning urine. all negative and breaking my heart.:( My Dec. period was due around the 11. i started bleeding on dec 5. it started pink usual for me and got darker and a little heavier. so i thought ok period but why didnt my Nov one come? I noticed that the color was normal at first but the red got darker like brick red and i noticed brownish pink slimy kind of stuff in it. but i shook it out my head. The reason why even bother looking closely to this blood is because i remember being nauseous most of Nov off and on,thought of pregnancy but shook it out my head,i guess cause its been so long and i never got preggo and yesterday i remember going to my grandma s house on Nov 9 (period was due the 8) I ate dinner. then cake then rice pudding my grandma made. when i got back home i felt really nauseous and thru up all my food. Weird.
    So back to this bleeding.. The second time i used the bathroom and saw brick red blood with the brownish pinkish i also saw small clots and had some the next 2 times i used the bathroom. so i thought def. periods here but still why Nov one.
    But my period did not get heavier not even the next day. i filled a pad but it was from like 7 at night till the next day 11. yes had a long day at work and slept really long lol. usually it goes thru to my undies but it didnt. its been 6 days. it was a little heavy not really tho, not like my period, for like a day and a half or two. when i wiped it was not like a gush of blood like i didnt really need to wipe again.then it was like spotting the next two days and changing color brownish and dark red but pink when i wipe and very little when i wipe also. the last two days it was coming and going, spotting still brown on liner and pink when wipe. its like it onky came out on the pad or liner. now its gone. Also i had like red and clear string things. twi of them. i never saw that before. I started to really think pregnancy because i am still nauseous almost everyday thru out the day off and on. i sometimes feel sick to my stomache and really full. and i did not have any cramps at all!! mayb for a sec. but thats it and it was a couple the last two days of spotting. that is not normal for me usually i get bad cramps that i lay in the fetal position and my vagina feeld sooooo sore (sorry tmi)but i dont want to get my hopes up. i recently started getting headaches off and on but idk if its cause of possible pregnancy or because i recently got a cold for having wet hair in my house with no heat on. and im a little stuffy so i assumed the headaches are from that. but idk. our hopes are kind of already up. im just so confused and read lots of different stories about IB and hoping im pregnant. im just so confused. Im thinking mayb i had a M/C without even knowing i was preggo(hopefully not!!) or i am and dnt have enough of the hormone for the test to pick up?? if im not preggo, whats wrong with me, why no period for Nov. Why this weird period and these symptoms. I hope im ok.

    Sorry if this was too long.
    Thanks for all you help in advance and advice:)

    Ps i have never been preggo before and this has never happened before.
    I guess wait and see if Jan. period comes???
    its sooo far away

    I took another preggo test Dec 13 it was negative. I still get nauseous and get a weird yucky taste in my mouth. Maybe i dont have enough Hcg to be picked up by a hpt??

    • DP Nguyen January 5, 2014, 11:23 pm

      Did you end up getting pregnant? The nausea and weird taste in your month does sound like early pregnancy.

    • Ali January 16, 2014, 9:38 pm

      I have a VERY similar situation. My period was due dec 24 and my cycle is never more than 28-30 days. I went to the doctor on jan 3 to get a blood test since I was having the same symptoms but it was negative. I had some bleeding from Jan 7-9 which was not too light but never got heavy like my normal cycle. I have been feeling off and nauseous but I haven’t gotten physically sick. On jan 13 I spotted very light and it was dark brown in color. I’m curious as to what happened with you ?? I just feel so confused and lost. Btw, I’m not TTC but would still be happy

  • lexi December 13, 2013, 2:30 pm

    I had my period the week of thanksgiving. I shouldn’t be getting it again for another 9 days. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend 2 days before ovulation. Usually when I start I have horrible unable to stand up cramps. But today I went pee and wiped and I had a lot of brown mucus blood on my toilet paper as if I didnt know it was there. I thought it was weird cause I’m not supposed to start until around the Weekend of the 19 th. It has slowed down a lot. My tampons usually full by 9-10ish if I put one in at 7. I changed it and it was just a litte bit of brown and tiny bit of pink. I have no cramps. A few days ago I had a weord feeling near my groin and I have had low back pain, pimples, tired, hungry, heartburn, and even felt nauseus. It just doesn’t feel like a normal period. I know my body.

    • lexi December 13, 2013, 2:35 pm

      I also forgot to mention that I do mostly have a normal cycle. If not then I’m always late. It just doesn’t feel normal to me. I feel like its the middle of the five days I’m in my period with not cramps. And I also forgot to add I was constipated too!
