Could i still be pregnant after 5 days of bleeding?
Hi everyone. Really hope you can help. I have a 2 year old. Before i got pregnant with him i had a miscarrige, but i got my period exactly a month later,and it lasted the normal 5 days, then exactly a week after it finished i had bleeding again,around the time i was suppose to ovulate, but it lasted only three days, then 3 weeks later i found out i was pregnant again. By the time i saw the doctor he said i was 5 weeks going from the ultra sound but counting from my period, the one that lasted 5 days i was six. Well now i had a period on the 29th August 2005, on the 10th september i started to bleed again, and again around the time i was suppose to ovualte, i wathced it to see how long it would last and its lasted for 5 days, i started puking day after it started and i puked for about 2 days later, i have stopped but i still feel quizy. I was thinking it was either implantation bleeding or ovualtion bleeding am just not sure, i have heard implantation bleeding usually occurs around the time your period is due, but is it possible i could have ovualted earlier than usual so implantation bleeding has occured earlier, or ovualtion bleeding? Has anyone had bleeding for 5 days or more in early pregnancy, after a period to later find out they were indeed pregnant? Please advise :)

i had a period with this PG it lasted 5 days and i am still PG. it started 2 days prior to my normal AF....implant bleed. it lasted so long because i have a bleeding disorder. i had implant bleeds with both of my pregnancies. a friend of mine had periods for 8 months of her PG. so i would wait a week and take a test....good luck.

Thank you kimmie that answer helped alot, how far along were u when the bleeding started? Cause like i said my bleeding started around the time i was to ovulate, how would i have conceived, it must have been earlier. I actually stopped taking my pills on the 6th of september, but by September 10th i started to bleed,i was wondering if it was withdrawal bleeding but am so sick, and i have never had withdrawal bleeding before.

AF = period...aunt flow...lol. i would count from your withdraw bleed. and even then remember it might take a cycle to get back to normal.

if you stopped your pills the 6th.....bleeding on the 10th is a stopping the pill bleed.....AF. i started bleeding 2 days before AF was due and bleed for 2 days and spotted for 5. i am now 5 weeks PG.

when i was on the pill and stopped taking it i had a really nasty period. did you stop mid pack? i did and that was the worst period ever. remember the pills in the beginning and middle of the pack are stronger and if you stop taking them then your period after will be awful. usually you will start to ovulate 1-3 cycles after stopping the pill. it took the full 3 cycles for me.....i got PG on the 4th cycle. but many women conceive the first one. i recommend counting sept as CD 1 of your cycle and go out and buy an OPK....ovulation predicter kit. start using it CD7 .....there are 7 pee tests....take one a day till a pos comes up. a pos is when the 1st line is as dark or darker than the 2nd line. answer is a easy to read and inexpensive brands. this will let you know if you are ovulating and if you are then when to have sex to best conceive.

once you get a pos.....you will ovulate in 24-36 hrs and it is baby making time! don't get discouraged if it you don't ovulate right away....that is common just off the pill. keep buying and taking the OPK and you should know when you ovulate and then can savor the moment!!!

love, hugs, and baby dust,,,,kimmie

Thank you once again, i agree with you on that one, i was assuming the same thing, but i wanted to make sure due to me being quizzy. I started back the pill again after my seven day break but i missed my 4th pill took the 5th really late took the 6th on time and i stopped on the 7th which was the 6th of sep. They say i should have completed the back, so my body wouldnt get confused and i wouldnt have a withdrawal bleeding, boy if i knew that before!! now am not so sure wether to expect my period on the 7th of october couting from my withdrawal bleeding or on the 28th sep coutning from my auctual period (I have the 28 day cycle) What do u suggest? Oh by the way, am pretty new here, what does AF, stand for? Thanks Kimmie xxx

Hi, I was 6 weeks pregnant as of last Thursday when I started spotting.  On Friday I was having a light flow that continued all day today (Saturday) and shows little sign of letting up.  There are sometimes a few very small clots.  Is there still any hope?  On thurs. they did a beta quant test and said my HQC level was at 617 or so.  I am going back tomorrow for another test to see if the numbers double.  Is there still any hope for me.  I am so scared that it is all over.  Thanks

Hi everyone, I have a similar question as the one above.  I am 5-6 weeks pregnant, I started light bleeding on friday and went to the dr, he ordered a hcg test which revealed my levels were at 778, I went back on sunday after continued light bleeding with passing of smalls amounts of tissue, another hcg test was done with my levels now at 868.  My dr diagnosed me with a threatened miscarraige with my cervix still being closed.  I am going to go back to the dr next week to have another check up, in the meantime...I am a nervous wreck, has anyone had anything similar?

well i am 5 weeks. i woke up yesterday, went to the bathroom and wiped and notice i was bleeding. it wasn't spotting it was me bleeding. so i went to the emergency room and the doc examined me. he did an u/s and said he didn't see nothing but at i'm just leaving my fourth week going into my fifth. he tested my level of hormones and it was ninety somthing he said it should be higher like in the 150. i don't feel the er doc should be seeing pregnant women. well today i went to my ob and he ran the same test and told me he wasn't sure yet if i had miscarried or not. he told me to come back wedn. to get the level checked again. my doc also said that the er doc should not have told me i miscarried because it isn't unknown yet. so i'm scared and worried. did i mention if i have a miscarry this will be the third. i lost my first at 16 wks. and the second at 18 wks. can someone please talk to me. give me hope. i'm really praying.

Hi Everyone!!

Hopefully this answers everyones question. With my last pregnancy i had three days straight of heavy bleeding, i actually didnt know i was preg,until i took a test, it lasted too short, when i saw the doc, the doct did a ultra sound, i was 5 weeks but he didnt see a baby, only a sac and he was doing and internal ultra sound, he did a test and my HCG was rising, he told me to come back in two weeks, to which i had more bleeding, when he did the US i was seven weeks, and there was my baby with his lil heart beating away, i have had bleeding like that, all through my pregnancy, with clots and thick chunks of blood, it was coming from the palcenta which is normal, now i have a happy two year old!!! In regards to my posted question, Kimmie notified me that the bleeding i was having should be withdrwal bleeding,it happened during my ovualtion, but a realible source said there was still a chance for me to concevie during the bleeding, cause it wasnt a actually period.

Well good luck everyone and keep me posted.

Lots and Lots of Baby Dust your way! xxxxx

Hello everyone,
Well I am in my first pregnancy and I am a wreck.  My HCG levels were 65 the first day and 75 the next.  The Doc told me that I would miscarry due to low levels.  He send me to get my levels check again this week, so I praying that they will triple!  But then this weekend I started to have some bleeding with small little clots. So should I take this as a sign?  Please help me figure this out.

It aint over, I've had seven pregnancy, and one live birth.  When I was pregnant with my daughter I had heavy bleeding when I reached 5 weeks for 3 days and continued with moderate without stopping until I reached my 10th week.  I'm now 6 weeks pregnant again and started heavy (really heavy large clots the whole bit) at 4 weeks.  After ten days of bleeding I knew something was up and I did a pregnancy test and found out I was pregnant.  In the last week I've been to my specialist office 4x's and had blood drawn 5x's.  But I am still pregnant.  It is completely possible to bleed during pregnany's. My DR has been and is nothing but doom and gloom through this whole ordeal, but as long as I can see the baby on the u/s and my levels are rising it aint over. I do alot of praying and thank God every morning that I wake up still pregnant.  I do the same thing every night and I pray several times a day. I figure it's all in god's hands regardless of what we try to do and what our Dr's say.

Thankyou so much for your post about bleeding during your pregnancy with your 2 y.o. It has given me hope. I have a 6 yo boy who also wishes for a brother or sister, but he's my only pg before now. A few weeks ago I got a positive pg test. Since an alarming experience w fresh blood on sheets after my husband & I had sex, I've been bleeding just as you describe - pink, thick, clotty stuff for 1.5 weeks, with lower back stiffness/discomfort. I thought it was gonna be all over. On Thursday got in to see my OB. According to my cycle I thought I was 8 weeks. He gave me internal US, and we saw heartbeat! He measured and put gestation back 6 days due to size. He couldn't tell me anything about why or what will happen but confirmed bleeding was from uterus and to abstain. He will tell me what he thinks when he checks my progress in 2 weeks. 2 LONG WEEKS. I just don't know how to feel, other than afraid. Your post helped a lot.  Anyone else experience similar?

Hi thank you for your post, but the bleeding wasnt with my 2 y.o i bled for three days around the time i were to ovulate and it seems i managed to conceive during the bleeding becasue my u/s was a lil off but it worked out right when i calcualted my due date counting from conception, as for my bleeding for 5 days, it turned out to actually be withdrawal bleeding because of me stopping my pills mid cyle, i took a test twice since then and both negative, that withdrawal bleeding is considered my period it came on the 10th of september so i were to ovualte on the 23 or 24th of september and my next period was due the 7ht of october but now its the 12th of october and it still hasnt come yet so iam hoping to get a bfp. I am sooo sorry u got my post confused my i didnt want you to get ur hopes up. i am praying ur baby is okay, my BF had bleeding on and off during her first three months, so i wouldnt worry too much, maybe u conceived after bleeding for 1.5 weeks thats why the ultra sound was a lil off. good luck and lots and lots of baby dust to you.

oh my gosh.  and here i thought it was all over!!  you ladies have given me so much hope for my second visit to the hospital tomorrow!!

well, i discovered that i was 5 weeks pregnant a few days ago when i missed a period.  after coming to the decision with keeping the baby, i've grown attatched, naturally.  a couple days into it after finding out the news, i had sex with my boyfriend and felt sharp, shooting pains (felt like it was in my left ovarie) for long moments afterwards...  
a day or two after this experience, my boyfriend didn't really take the "me wanting to keep it" all too well, since it wasn't really planned, and we are a fairly young couple (18 and 20 years old).  we had a lot of fights for a few days, causing me a great deal of stress, and so i thought that this was what brought on the severe cramps and bleeding i later on experienced...  
the first time i bled, i noticed it was rather heavy, but only lasted for a few hours that night after an intense argument.  i had also developed a straining cramp in the same place where i had experienced that sharp, shooting pain after that one time of intercourse.  the dull and straining cramp remained on the left side well into the next day, and when my mom called me the next morning to check up on me, i told her what i had experienced and she told me that it sounded like i was losing the baby.  so she took me to the hospital, and we had blood work done and hcg levels checked (this last monday).  the doctor gave me the thumbs up and told me that my levels were about 95 and that i need to come in on wednesday (2 days following) to follow up to ensure that this is not an ectopic pregnancy.  the doctor also assumed that this was not a miscarriage, since the bleeding only lasted for a few hours the prior evening...
but later than evening i experienced another medium-ish discharge of clots and solid-looking materials, accompanied by blood.  this was only a couple times going to the washroom, so i didn't think much of it, since the doctor told me if i was miscarrying, it would last for more than a day-ish and seem like a normal or heavier period.
and today (tuesday) i began to experience more bleeding and cramping from the mid afternoon.  as the day went on, it only got heavier, as if it wasn't going to let up and just turn into a full-blown, nasty period, with clots and the works...  
i've been horrified all night about my baby's health, still wondering if it's still living inside me or not, and i'm feeling very depressed even at the thought of it not being there anymore (naturally)...  until i read this forum full of your wonderful, hope-giving messages!!!  
the bleeding is finally letting up now (by midnight), so i really hope what you ladies say is true for my pregnancy as well!
i have my appointment tomorrow (technically today, since it's midnight), with an ultrasound, and another hcg test to check if my horomone levels have doubled normally.

wish me luck!!!
baby dust to me and everyone!!!!
