If you are 12 days before AF is due then this could be implantation bleeding.

I started spotting a week and about two weeks before my period was due and now I am 31 wks pregnant  They call it implantation bleeding. If that's what it is, it should only last a few days or more. I took my test a few days before i was suppose to get my period and it was possitive. I hope that helps.

12 days before AF is due, which is only 2 dpo seems very soon for implantation. The earliest I ever had it was 3-4 dpo. You might be experiencing ovulation spotting, as some women do get it time to time. If it was indeed implantation bleeding, you should get a BFP real soon!

Implantation bleeding usually occurs about the same time you would be expecting AF.  If AF is still 12 days away, then I wouldn't think you are experiencing implantation bleeding.  I suppose anything is possible though.  Spotting can be caused for so many reasons. I started having premenstrual spotting when we were TTC and it was horrible.  Worse, was that I could not get my GYN to take me seriously.  I still don't know why it was happening.  Anyway, wait until you are late for AF to take a HPT.  If you wait that long you are more likely to get an accurate result.  BTW, if the spotting continues each month then you may want to see your GYN just to make sure there's not any problems.

Hello,
I'm new here and hoping that someone can give me some advice that I can't seem to find when I search online.  Here's my story:  I’m 23 years old.  I started to take BCP when I was 16 years old.  I’ve been off BCP since February 26, 2008.
I always had a 28 days cycle before I was on the BCP. I was on the BCP for 8 years and always had a cycle of 28 days except for one cycle it was 29 days.  I always started spotting 1-2 days before I started my periods.  I started charting my cycle since January 2008 and this is what it looks like.

This is my 4th cycle charting.

Cycle #1: 28 days, annov. Start charting mid-cycle.  Last month on the BCP.
Cycle #2: 28 days, annov.
Cycle #3: 29 days, Ovulated on CD16, 13 day LP
Cycle #4: 38 days, Ovulated on CD38, and in progress . . . .

My problem is that I started spotting most of the time after ovulation. And when I ovulate and I start my periods it is a length of 13 days I spot 7 days on my cycle #3 and this cycle so for I spotted 4 days.
What can I do to stop the spotting are do you know what it my cause my spotting.

Thanks for your help

Melanie

Girl, I don't know I am having the same problem. I Started spotting a week or two before I started a normal flowing period. It went on as normal and then a week after my period went off I began spotting again. I have been spotting for about 2 weeks now. I don't know whats wrong. I have a 3 year old and a 16 month old and I am praying I am not pregnant again. Did you ever find out what was wrong with your cycle? I am not on any birth control but me and my partner use condoms most of the time except for maybe 1 or two times months ago. Please help, somebody!

Im still planning on going to a doctor as
soon as i can but for now i really nead some
answers!
About two weeks ago i had sex twice with
my boyfriend in the one hour. at which
time i was ovulating. I know he put a
condom on both times but we were both
under the influence of alcohol and neither
can remember if the condom broke or
wasnt on right. i had my last period abyout
four weeks ago and i was expecting mine
sometime this week but for the last 2
(almost 3) days i have been getting brown
spots, as ive read its not so heavy that it
comes onto your underwear but i have
been putting a liner on and it goes on that
but its only light still. So basically im worried
i may be pregnant, i dont have any other
signs yet which is why im a bit confused. I
want to have kids but i am way too young.
So can someone PLEASE HELP ME!!!
