Late Period, light spotting, cramps, back pain

My husband and I recently decided to start trying to concieve (conceive).  The past 2 months, my period (if you can call it that) was "late" - I say that because I have normally had "regular" periods, the bleeding was on the heavy side, a few cramps, etc.   for the last few months, my cycle has been changing (longer cycle then shorter cycle and lighter bleeding) NOW - my period is more like spotting - light enough to barely even need a panty liner.  It ranges from a pinkish color, to more reddish, to brownish, from thin/watery to thicker.  I have noticed (what i think) are clots when i use the bathroom.  This month (for 2 days) i have had bad  painful cramps, nausea, fatigue,  - i have been extra crabby too and today back pain that started this morning, (I had to take tylenol) - not that that has worn off - the back pain is back - and tonight when I used the bathroom - there was a "bigger" spotting of redder (not really bright but not pink) blood on the toilet paper) (I have not had this before ) I took a preg. test last month (negative) and one today (negative) - My husband and i did have sex on what i figured to be my ovulation days.
I went to my Dr last month and was told as long as i am having "a period" i am fine - i don't feel fine this time
Could this be implantation bleeding, could it have been too early for the test (i was supposed to get my period on 11/31 - according to what has been normal for me in the past), could my cycle just have changed?  misscarrige?  I have looked online for answers and am getting a lot of contradiction information
does any one have any suggestions

It could be a number of many things that you just mentioned. How frustrating.  You should test again.  If it comes up negative maybe make a trip into your doctors office. Good luck! I hope everything works out for you

Just like jjish44 said you should take another test. Then if it comes up negative go to your Dr and ask them for a blood test, they are more accurate and tell early on. That is exactly how it was with my daughter. I took HP test and they came back negative until I was 7 months pregnant. Of course I knew I was pregnant I just wanted to be like everyone else and have a stick that said it lol. But I did the blood test and that is how I found out I was. Well let me know, would love to find out if you are.. I'm TTC now for 4 years and I just started Clomid last week. So we will see where that leads us. Good luck!
