Like everyone else on this forum site I also had this problem..confused if I could be pregnant.I have my menstruation on the 4th of this month and had an unprotected sex from 11-17.like almost everyday.So this day19 until I'm writing this post now I am having a brownish-sort-of-bleeding.It doesn't lasted long.like u dont need a pad because it is not heavy flow.maybe a few drops during the day.
My questions:
*Is this a sign of an Implantation Bleeding?
*When should I take home pregnancy test?(cant wait!so into having a baby :(

hhhhhhhhhheeelp!!!

Hi!! From what I have read what we have can be implantation bleeding...and it can last up to a week and a half....I am waiting until I miss my period completely for this month so I probably won't take a test until on or about Dec. 29th....some people can get a positive hpt 10days after the bleeding has stopped. My spotting started on the 18th of this month and I still have it now, but like you said not heavy enough for a pad/tampon...I say take a test like Jan. 2nd and see if you get a positive...but if its negative doesn't mean your not prego, might mean you test to early...try again like 3days after and see what that says. Good luck!!

I took my pregnancy test a week after i conceieved and it came up positive. They actually had to track down the specific day I conceived because the baby wasnt developed for as far along as they thoguht I was. So I conceived oct 26 and took a test nov 2 and it was a faint positive so really it depends on how high your hcg levels are. Hope this helps. O and also i didnt have omplantation bleeding til i was about 4 or 5 weeks pregnant and had it twice.

Hey! I know right....I am so glad I found this site too, to be able to talk to woman going through the same thing I am. Defanitly keep me posted on what happens with you and let's keep our fingers crossed that we don't get our periods :0)!!! And like the poster before me said yes it most defantily depends on a womans hcg levels...everyone is different. But it looks like we are on the same page with whent to take the test...if mine comes up negative on the 29th then I am going to try again on Jan. 2nd or 3d bc then I would have truly missed my period for the month of Dec.I am going to use clear blue digital read, and also maybe get a regualr one bc idk if they would detect "faint" lines or not and if not and there is a faitn line and say not pregnant..lol. Hope to hear from you soon!!

Hello there! Sounds like spotting to me...not a period...I have heard of light periods but if it's not heavy enough to use a pad/tampon, to me that is spotting. As for implantation bleeding it could be that to...are you trying to concieve (conceive)? You could test now if you period was due already and you missed it. Are your periods regular all the time?

HI, I'm in the same situation. I was supposed to get my period on the 25th or 26th, and today at 5pm had a couple spots of blood. (Well I guess that would be yesterday, since I see its after midnight now lol) It hasn't reappeared. I have been TTC too, lost my angel in July. Normally when I get my period, theres no question, I just start gushing..Sorry TMI. Hope mine is implantation too. Baby dust to everyone TTC!!

I had unprotected sex a day after I finished my period Dec.19th he didn't *** in me but I think he pre-cummed. I have all the signs of pregnancy, but it is too soon to say I've missed my period. So can I still take a test? What kind should I use?

I just got a positive hpt. well two actually (didnt believe the first) on Dec 25th. I had a normal period oct. 19 lasting about 5 days. And then on Nov. 19th had abnormally short bleeding less that 2 days. Because it was so short i suspected that I might have been pregnant and took a hpt on Nov. 27th and it was negative. So ive been trying to figure out how far along i might be .. If the bleeding on Nov 19th may have been implantation bleeding?!? any ideas

2 days ago, i had a drop off light pink blood when i wiped. then nothing until about 5-6hrs later. Then i have seen nothing wlse since then. I was suppose to start today and havent. Could that have been implantation bleeding? Since the first day of my missed period is tomorrow, is it ok to take a pregnancy test? Good luck everyone!!!

It would depend on when you ovulated. They say usually 6-12 days after fertilization is normally when it happens. I gotta lay off the HPT's lol. I have been doing them like crazy..It's frustrating waiting to find out what's going on.

Hi all! Just found this forum! Wow its amazing to know that I am not the only one with this brown spotting that occurred yesterday! My period is due on Friday (4 days) and my husband and I have been ttc since we were married in August (when I also came off the pill!) I am really hoping that this spotting (and mild period like cramps) are our little baby!! I have NEVER been 5 days early in getting my period before and I currently have a first response test sitting in my bedside table - but reading the above comments, it looks like I had better just wait until Friday when I will be due... Its so tempting though!!! Hoping everyone updates on here if they were successful - its just so exciting!!

I to have been having a small amount of spotting going on. My last period began on Nov.25. I was due to start again on Dec. 22/23. I took a test on the 24th , it was negative. Then that afternoon I started this faint spotting, only when I wipe, no major bleeding. It finally stopped yesterday morning(the 26th). Nothing today, I have been cramping some also. I just don't know what to think. We have been trying now for the past couple of months. We already have children, so you would think I might know by now!! lol I have never had this happen with any other pregnancy. I bought a test tonight, should I take it or wait a few days? Any advice appreciated! Thanks.

I'm having the same situation. AF was supposed to start 24/25, and had a bit of spotting on 24th. Still no AF and have been taking tests every morning, but still negative. I don't have any of my own, but lost my first in July at 3 months.
Going to call the doctor on Tuesday, I was in last week thinking I had a bladder infection, and he oredered an HPT, so I'm sure he wont be too suprised to see me again.

im so upset and really worried of whats happening. had positive result on ovulation tests yesterday and a day before, now today i seem to be having a period, and i had my period this month on  the 9th. i am now so confused of whats happening to my body. how can you have a positive result on an ovulaton test then start a period? have you ever experienced this?
i hope you get your positive result 2moz, all the best.xx

I just took a test this morning...... its positive!!!! :))) I was scared to even take another one, but I thought "what the heck"!! lol  I went to the Dollar Stare and bought one of their $1 test because I was tired of spending alot of money on test. Well, it worked!! Also, I thought this might help some out, if you will search E.P.T. online, there is a $5.00 off coupon. I was able to print it off 2 times, so maybe that can save someone some money on these test. I think you might be able to use it on ovulation test also. Good luck to everyone! What a confusing subject this is.

Hi everyone, I am sort of in the same boat. Last period was on Dec 5.  I had sex one time, about 4 days before ovulation.  I spotted light red/pink from Dec 24 - Dec 26.  I took a HPT on the 27th and it was negative.  My period is due Jan 2nd.   We arent really trying to have another baby but if I'm pregnant we'd be thrilled.  Its not like me to spot mid cycle for 2 days!  But I have also heard that stress can cause spotting between cycles.  And well... Chrismas was certainly stressful for me.  But I really hope I am preggo!! :)

1145691_tn?1291481938
yay grats! I hope I get my positive soon!  That makes me feel better as our situation is similar except your last AF was a couple days ahead of mine.

Hi there Im 25 and in the same boat although i am a little confused.. My last menstral was Nov 11th I have a 32 day cycle. Had unprotected sex Nov 17th,30th and Dec 9th and 16th, and I was due for my AF Dec 13th, well its now 29th Dec and i have not seen my period although i did experience some brown,pink spotting for three days very light with no flow on Dec 23rd. I have been really tired latley and drained, experiencing leg cramps, and low stomach cramps that are mild- odd for me cause i never get cramps, bloating, moodiness :S My breasts seem to be darker in color. I tested on Dec 20th and got a Neg but i didnt experience the spotting till Dec 23rd could that have been implantation bleeding> if i concieved on the 9th or 16th :S is that even possable?? Im not sure if i should try testing again so soon ?

I would try testing again. It is very possible that you got pregnant at any of those times and it not show on the 23rd. Try again, but be sure to test in the morning.Good luck!!!

babybliss---
We have the exact same AF dates! I also took a test on the 24th and it was neg. I started spotting that afternoon. I tested again yesterday with the first morning urine and it was a positive. It was a very light line, but it was a line!!Test again, but in the morning this time. That is the best urine sample. Good luck!!

Hey there I tested again early this morning 5am and got another Neg. I am so confused over this if I am not pregnant then what the heck is going on with my body. my legs ache, im bloated, tired a lot, no AF, and the brown,pink spotting i had on the 23rd a week and a bit after my period was supossed to show up. I just dont get it!
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
I felt the same way! I bet you are. Give it another day or so and try again! if nothing then and still no af, I would go get a blood test. back several years ago, I thought I was pregnant and kept testing and it was always negative. Then I became 2 months late, so I went to the doctor and had a blood test. It was positive. My levels were really low. They put me on meds to try and boost them, but I ended up losing the baby. Probably if I had got there earlier they might have been able to save it. Just too much time I spent waiting I guess.

I just came from my doctor and he did internal check up with me.Because i told him I spotted 2weeks on the row already..period will be on Jan3-4 and he suspected that I might be pg.But here is some of his diagnosis:
No mass.
Cervix is closed.
Did have a pelvic exam.
Blood spot now are fresh.

Did a blood test --will get the result on Thursday.
Im so scared..I wanted to have a positive result, but I'll do my hpt tomorrow morning.(I did not have it today)

I will go in for a blood test soon i think and try to figure out why my bodys acting the way it is. I am having mood swings off the chart latley as well on told of everything i just wanna cry and dont know why..

1145691_tn?1291481938
I am totally going to be trying every night this month! This was supposed to be a month off because I have been getting really depressed the last few months every time I get AF.
I'm so sorry to hear you had a loss as well. :/

P.S. to everyone.. This is going to be hard to say, but I was reading that late implantation has a signifigant increase in chances of not making it due to lack of nutrients.. So it all comes down to luck..Sorry, it was hard for me to read that, but if it doesn't end up being your month, just know it wasn't your fault the egg decided to take its time this month.

Lots of Baby Dust to everyone and for all who have gotten BFP best of luck on your journey :)

Well I had an operation in April to diagnose endometriosis, and the OB told me to BD every other night for about ten days around the time you should be ovulating, because after four days, the sperm start to die off, and if you try every day, the sperm doesn't have enough of a chance to replenish itself.
Also, afterwards you should lie down on your back for at least ten minutes without moving, even better, propping a pillow under your bottom. This helps the sperm make its way to the proper place.
Another trick is to try to pinpoint when your ovulating. You can do this by taking ovulation kits, checking cervical mucous, checking basal body temps and/or taking notice of when "sex drive" is strongest. You don't have to try all of it, but checking cervical mucous to take note of when your most "wet" and making sure to get 'er done when your in the mood are good things to try!

well I am still late 50 days since last AF as of now. Took my temp today and its 98.42F :S very High for me since i normaly sit at 98.2 F. Im worried though cant shake this worry that somethings wrong. I keep testing Neg for being preg, but im 2 1/2 weeks late for AF and have had that spotting.. so I think im gonna go into emerg tonight and have them do an ultra sound and what ever other testing to figure out if I am preg or what the heck is up with my body. Other then that I dont know what else to do :S

Hi there Kate, I read some where that ovulation tests can in some cases show up as ovulating when you are pregnant. Dont think that helps much but its what i have read. I am 2 days away from being 3 weeks late now. And i cant shake this feeling that i am pregnant but not very far along. If i concieved i would have done so on the 9th or 16th- which was 4 days after my period was suposed to show up. So there is still the chance that it was too soon to test positive. I really am confused and kinda pissed off at the doctor that i saw cause he looked at me  and told me that he dose not think i am pregnant and that i would be 4 weeks along if i was. Which is a load of bull because although medical ppl count from your last menstral it really depends on when you concieved.  the doc only did blood work and urine test- urine test im sure was watered down since i drank so much before hand.. Then the doc told me to go home take ibprofin on advil every 4 hours and test again in a week to make sure im not preg. I was like what the heck!! so go home load myself up with medication that could be harmful if i am pregnant and test again in a week.. He told me i was just having a hormonal surge from skipping my period. And ignored me when i told him i never skip peirods EVER. Not to mention I am a mother of 1 lovley 4 year old boy so i know what the begining of being preg feels like.. I Just dont understand yet i still have this deep down feeling that i am pregnant or that something is wrong.. So i guess i just wait a week or until i skip my next period to find out whats happening for sure. In the mean time i dont think im gonna take the ibprofin or advil like the doc was saying and i will just deel with the slight nausea, tiredness and crap my body is deciding to do.. Is it even possable to have a late period (due on 13th) and get preg 4 days after it was due on 16th?

My husband and I have been trying since june with no luck.  My last period was Dec. 4th.  I used the ovulation kits and found that I ovulate on day 20 rather than day 14.  This put my highest days around Christmas day.  I was due to start yesterday, and I am like clockwork.  I took a hpt test, but it came back negative.  Could this be due to late ovulation?  Can I still be pregnant?  This willbe our first child, so we have no idea how these test work.  Please help!!!!

for those of you guys charting ovulation dates, you can get cheap ovulation kits (with hcg sticks as well) from ebay...like 10 bucks for 30 tests or something like that.  soooo much cheaper than buying from a store.

My last period was Dec. 18th, and I started spotting on the 29th...still bleeding a little...pinkish and red...I figured my period just came back since I just finished my period around Christmas time.  Anyways, just for fun I took an hcg test on the 1st and it came up positive, and pretty obvious line too, not a faint line.  I don't get it.  I chart my LH surges and I had a surge around Christmas time, so it's weird that I'd be spotting already, or hcg-positive.  If I am prego, that means I must have ovulated during my period some time...I think we only had sex twice since my last period.  WEIRD.  You never know what's gonna happen.  I'm so curious...

So I am new to this forum and very glad I found you. My hubby and I are ttc and I am very confused. I last had my AF on the 20th of Dec and figured that I was ovulating around the 29th or 30th my next AF is not due until the 15th of January but yesterday and today there were light spotting on tp when wiped. No reason for spotting 13days from my AF so is this implantation bleeding? and if so how soon can I take a HPT? This is all so confusing.

first i would just like to say thank you to everyone who are posting their experiences. Just knowing people are going through the same thing as you is comforting.
Me and my boyfriend have been ttc for two years now this month. my last mp was on nov 30-dec 4 i started spotting brown on jan 2 a little on my underwear but mostly when i wipe(sorry if tmi) now today it seems to have tapered off but we will see. im just wondering if implantation bleeding can come after a period was due. Im trying to not get my hoes up because im always so let down. in the past two years i guess it has become easier when my period shows up but im starting t worry iam unable to conceive, im way to scared to go to a doctor and hear that im unable...any advice would be great. thanks to all

From what I have read, it sounds like that could possibly be implantation bleeding and I guess its not likely to get a positive pregnancy test until thats done. I have been going through the same thing so I have been researching. Im not late quite yet, but still have had some symptoms.
I would guess since youre a week late that either you can wait a few days and test again because if you are pregnant maybe your hcg levels are too low. Or you could also do a blood test and that would show how high your hcg levels are to see if you are pregnant. Hope this helps. GOOD LUCK!!!!

hi everyone hope you all had a fantastic christmas!!! i took another ovulation test yesterday a clearblue digital one thought it may be better as you get a smily face if the test is positive, rather than reading to lines, which is sometimes hard to tell the result. well i got the smily face so definatly ovulating, hope this month i will finally get a positive result with the pregnancy test. been trying for a while now and its sooooooooo frustrating that you get signs of spotting, late periods, and think its implantation then the period comes. i feel for all of you that are in this same situation, its depressing. it was a strike of luck yesterday that i woundered if i could be ovulating, 4th jan, as i had a second period in december 27th after having one beginning of december the 9th. so really not sure what the hell my bodies doing. went to the loo and when wiped i noticed wet watery discharge, had a few cramps, and stabbing pains in my right hand side, so i thought maybe i am ovulating got a test and it was positive. very odd though as i thought you ovulated in the middle of your cycle, not a few days after a period. did another hpt to rule out that it wasnt pregnancy giving me a positive on ovulation test, but that was negative. does anyone know of anything that could give a positive result on an ovulation test as not on any medication or been on any contraception, but just feel its very odd to be ovulating few days after a period. been to see the doctor but as usual they dont seem worried or very interested to be honest. i would be very greatful if anyone had any ideas on this, and all the best to you ALL in getting pregnant to.xx

I take 4 test and they come up neg and then I have a 3 with faint lines. so now today I go into the bathroom and get lite blood. I was due for my period anywhere from the 28th-31st of Dec. I'm sooo confused. I want to be preg sooo bad that why we had the iud removed. I have appnt on Jan 7th with my ob/gyn for follow up on iud removal. now that I'm spotting or have very little blood I'm worried I'm not pregnent. I'm not sure if implantaton bleeding or any kind of bleeding/spotting can happen after your period is due? I hope any of you have answers, if not Ihope my Dr tells me I'm preg on Thurs. only 2 days but i'm so sick of not knowing..

I'm new here but happy to find this website. I have been charting my menstrual cycles for a couple months after ttc for 7-8 months and not getting anywhere. The first day of my last cycle was on Dec 14 and I was supposed to be ovulating from the 30th of Dec to the 4th of January with ovulation on the 3rd. We made love on the 28th and 30th of Dec. Now on the 4th of January I had spotting, only once and I havent had any since. My period isnt supposed to start until the 16th of Jan. I want to take the test now but I dont want it to come out negative and be dissapointed. I'm trying to wait until my period will be missed or as long as I can handle it. I'm not supposed to be trying so I dont want to ask my doctors to take a blood test. I've noticed some lower back pain also but not much else for signs. It seems to early to be getting my period but anything is possible I guess. Thank you for any advice and I wish everyone good luck!

I am on the same cycle as u and have some what i am thinking is implantation bleeding and low back pain..My AF is not due until Jan 16.  I have a 13 month old and have been trying to conceive for about 4 months...I want to test also...For all of u trying to conceive and havent I strongly recommend the herbal suppliment MACA MACA...that is what help me get prego with my dd after trying for 7 years...I am hoping this is the month as this is the first month on MACA MACA since conceiving my daughter Feb of 2008.  

baby dust to all.

So I went to Dr today after I had been bleeding the last couple days and it wasn't implantation bleeding. It's a chemical pregnancy so a miscarriage is what's going on with me. Hopefully we can get pregnant this month and have it last... A bummer that it didn't go all the way.

Hello, I am new to this site and like what I see so far. Well I started my period of Dec 19 and believe I ovulated sometime between Jan 1st or Jan 2nd. Me and hubby had sex on December 27 and then again on Dec 31st. Do you think I have a chance of being pregnant??

I have been feeling really moody lately and feeling some cramps (pretty early then usual) but nothing compared to period cramps they really hurt.

Also, Jan 1st I was feeling pain on my left side. Does that mean I was ovulating or about to?

1163719_tn?1263953908
sounds like a possibility to me..i too started my period on dec 19 and am due to have my next one on Jan 16.  I am very anxious about finding out myself.  i believe i ovulated on the 30 of dec and am having implantation bleeding now hopefully and am having some cramping also..i know it is not my period yet but still have my doubts about being pregnant as it could not be this easy for me..previous ones it took forever.

Hi everyone. My husband and I have been TTC and took a HPT today (twice) because I have been feeling a little off. Both came back with what I HOPE are positive results. But I kind of can't tell. How long should I wait before I call my OBGyn, I don't want to be too eager...
Thanks for any advice!

My last normal period was Dec 3 I was supposed to start my period on the 31st.  On the 30th I had period flow for half a day then it stopped completely for the 31st and on the 1st i started having brown spotting for about a week. Could I be pregnant? When could I do a pregnancy test?

I'm very excited that the original post is so new. I am a little nerve wrecked at the moment. Here is my situation, Dec. 18th i was ovulating and had sex 2 days prior, 3 days after, and everyday inbetween. I had a feeling i was pregers, but now not so sure. I have takin 3 pregnancy tests so far all Neg. On my birthday Jan 5th i started spotting a very very small amount and nothing since then.

I was wondering can i be pregnate?

I have only been pregnant Once before which was 3yrs ago. Unfortunatly it ended very tragicly. In short I was carring twins. I miscarried one and then discovered the second was atopic. So it was a very sad day. So this will lightly explan my sadness. I have tried to have a baby for about 7 yrs

i had an unsual sort of spotting close to the dates of my period & slight bleeding too..it was more reddish though not brown in anyways...it wasnt like regular periods though....so am confused...did a HPT the positive line was very very faint...so wondering did i do the test earlier...could that have beeen an implantation bleeding ?...
Blank
1163719_tn?1263953908
All of u who have had even a very faint positive test needs to call the Dr. and make an appointment, also start prenatal vitamins if u havent already.  There are alot of birth defects that can come from not taking vitamins early ie spina bifida.  Anyway, even a faint positive line is enough to be pregnant.  I have a wonderful almost 10 year old son.  I misscarried when he was 4 and now have a wonderful 13 month old daughter.  The time difference was not on purpose as i have a very hard time getting prego, but i think i finally found the technique and we are trying again.  (Patiently waiting till my period is due on the 16 of this month but it is extremely hard.)  The good thing we have not had to spend anything on bc the whole time:).

Hope everyones efforts pan out.

Ok here's my story. Back in September I stopped using the NovuRing due to financial reasons. I had a regular period in October after starting my new job and another one in November. My last period was around Thanksgiving. It's now January 8 and no period. I had some very light spotting the past few days that has been a pinkish color, but nothing today. Usually when I got some light spotting I'd get some abdomen cramping. Not like full fledged cramps but cramping all over and I'd go to bed that night and wake up to a full flow period. I've taken 3 hpt's so far. I took one on december 25, and another on december 31, both negative. I took another one yesterday at like 2pm and it was negative as well. I'm not good at keep track of my periods but I do know my last one was around thanksgiving. My boyfriend and I haven't really been trying but also haven't been preventing. There's definitely a huge chance I could be because he did finish in me multiple times a the past few weeks. I guess my main question is when I should test again. I have been feeling weird the past few weeks but don't know if it's in my head or if it's real. I have been feeling nauseous at times, headaches quite often, moody, and just weird, kind of like a tingling feeling all over. A few days ago when my spotting began I had some very weird feelings in my abdomen at work and went to the bathroom to find I started spotting.  I think my abdomen has been increasing in size but like i said before it might all be in my head. I dont know. I'm 6ft tall and slim in the abdomen region (not so much in the butt and thighs, lol) and so feeling like my abdomen is increasing in size might be a ligit concern.  I've been talking with a few people about it as well as researching online. i'm not stressing over it too much as if I am pregnant, that's awesome!! If not, that's ok. I'm not in too much of a hurry but would love to become pregnant and have a child.

I know from experience that stress can affect it as well as major life changes. I lost my job back in june of 2007 and didn't have a period for 3 months because of the sudden change in my everyday schedule. My doctor put me on the NovuRing and that fixed everything.

Oh, also I'm 25 and have had some pretty regular periods for a really long time. I just want some advice from people who have been in the same situation. Could i be having implantation bleeding and when should i take the next hpt?
Blank
1163719_tn?1263953908
Well, I took 5 tests before one came up positive with my son and i was right at 6 weeks pregnant.  Probably should wait another week before u test again...however it could just be stress if u have had the problem before.  If u still havent started your period in a week u might want to consult the Dr especially if it seem ur abdomen is increasing because u might have an ovarian cyst or something (I have had those before also and they can cause spotting as well especially coming of the nuvoring).  That is my advice for what its worth..Hope things go well with you.

I'm new to this forum and I like it. [=

Reading all your experiences is pretty cool but also making me a little confused with what I'm going through. Someone PLEASE help me. I'm almost 19 years old, I'm 5ft tall and weight about 100lbs. I've been on the NuvaRing for almost 2 years now, I'm really careful and responsible and I always take it out and replace it on time at the same time all the time. I took out the NuvaRing December 8, 2009, started my period on December 11, 2009. Had my period for about 4 days and replaced the NuvaRing on December 15, 2009. I do have unprotected sex with my boyfriend of 2 years but like I said I'm REALLY careful. I lost count of how many times we had sex between the time I replaced the NuvaRing until I took it out this past tuesday January 5, 2010. He doesn't come inside me, I don't have sex when I'm taking ANY kind of medication. We "sometimes" use condoms but thats when I feel we should. I know my body very well and I always pay attention to it. Around December 29, 2009 I started feeling so weird. So damn sick is not even funny. I started experiencing every pregnancy symptom except missed period and sore breast (but they are swollen with a lot of noticeable green veins even with my caramel complexcion). On New Years Eve I felt very warm, nauseous and had bad diarrhea (TMI sorry but I need help). But thank God when the ball dropped I was all better. So yeah ever since around the 29th I've been feeling basically pregnant, I know of many ladies that the NuvaRing failed them. But I can't speak for them because I dont know if they were being as careful as I am...

So like I said, I took out the NuvaRing this past Tuesday January 5th 2010 and still all week I was still experiencing symptoms. And let me tell you I usually don't eat much but I've been eating like a damn pig, like 24/7. And the fatigue kills me. My tummy is also swollen never like before when I'm getting my period. I was gonna take a HPT today but there is fresh snow outside to go buy it.
So my period is supposed to start today the 8th. I was up late so anxious, and I started slight bleeding at 3am. I put a pad on just incase. When I woke up I had the weirdest bleeding. Brown blood with gooey chunks and stuff. Everytime I wipe more stuff comes out (sorry I know TMI). I'm finally cramping on my lower tummy area and a little bit of back pain. Usually I cramp all week before my period but I didn't.

Okay so that was my life story lol. Thought I should tell you all what I've been going through... So I'm still "brown" bleeding right now at 4:10pm. I dont even know if I should take a test anymore and I certaintly DONT know if I should put back on a NuvaRing next week Tuesday the 12 because I dont know if im expecting and if it may harm the process.

HELPPP please ladies. I've NEVER had a pregnancy scare before, never late or missed my period. ~=/

love that sounds like your period,

usually implantation bleeding is not chunky or alot, its a few drips.

take a home pregnancy test. itll calm your nerves and or give you a definate answer.

I will definitely take a pregnancy test. Maybe I just got sick or something because I've never felt this horrible before a period especialy almost 2 weeks before. Maybe a light flu or something.

well Im still trying to figure out what is wrong with my body. My last AF was Nov 11th, I was due for my AF Dec 13th but didnt get it. Had sex Nov 17th,30th, Dec 9th,16th and had brown, pink spotting for two days no flow on Dec 23rd. was am now due for AF jan 13th a week away. I am so confused, as my breasts are sore/swollen, areolas are darker, im bloated and what was once flab is well filled out a lil, light cramping, head aches, lotiony discharge- i keep thinking im getting AF only to find when i run to the bathroom that its not. craving sweets, and oranges (very rare for me). Feeling so tired all i seem to want to do is sleep. I dont know what to think any more.. I have seen 2 doctors both didnt give me clear answers about what this could be. I had a blood test done on the 20th- but doc told me that if i conceived on 9th or 16th that it would be to soon. have done 6 hpt all came up neg, and went for another blood test dec 29th because i was worried that if i am not pregnant then what is happening to my body!! Instead the doctors looked at the urine and blood test told me they dont THINK i am pregnant but didnt even do a exam or ultra sound or anything to figure out what is happening :( im so fed up with this i just wanna know what the heck is happening. Im moody and feel like im on an emotional roller coster ride and before all this crap with tests i would have sworn that i was pregnant but the tests keep saying neg and my bodys symptoms dont lay off even after i think of the posibility of not being preg. I was not planning on being preg, although if i am im fine with it and not stressed about it. But i am worried about my health since i cant understand my body. what should i do? I have skipped one period, and its been 60 days since my last AF.. Is it even possable that i am preg, i cant shake this feeling that i am preg, although i am aware it could be something else.. HELP any advice would be great. :(

I was JUST reading a story about a girl saying how she had missed her period, done a bunch of home pregnancy tests, a blood test and all came back negative. So they scheduled an u/s to find out what was wrong, and it was then that they saw a heartbeat. She said she was shocked because of all the negative tests. So maybe you should try another doctor that will actaully listen to you, and hopefully they will do both a blood test and an u/s? Just a suggestion, keep us updated! Good Luck

Yes find another doctor. Also if you have female doctors I say find a male doctor because to me they listen more and get more work done. And metion and ultra sound to see whats going on inside that belly because I "think" you may have a little peanut in there. [=

Calm down, no one knows better than I do.  I tried for 3 years before i got my son (had to have a DNC to be able to get pregnant with him).  I tried another 4 years to get my daughter (that i was fore sure not going to have but took the herb MACA MACA for one month and found out i was pregnant).  I started trying to conceive at 27 and i am now 38 and we are trying to conceive one more time (i would have ten if i could but i have to have C-sections with each pregnancy).  I found the more u worry the more your body reacts to that kinda of stress.  And i know nothing bothers me more than seeing mothers that get pregnant at the drop of a hat or mothers that obviously dont need children.  If u and ur husband have not got checked out physically to make sure all is well then try that and then just be patient, it will sneak up on u when u least expect it.  Hope i have helped a little.

I am sooo confused!  I thought I had what you all had ( implantation bleeding) -I got it a week before my period is due ( the brownish color for about 2 days) - it was enough to wear a light days pad though and then no period, no flow. anyway I was due Jan. 2 (that would be 31 days) and now it is Jan. 10th!  Took many preg. test and all neg. I took them with the first morning pee and everything -- still neg.  called by OBGYN and she says if the preg. test is neg  wait it out and take one one to two weeks later (they don't do blood tests she said) how annoying. Just very upset that they are all neg.

I have been pregnant before but did not continue with the pregnancy in 2008.  My test positive did not show until I was about 4 weeks pregnant. I had tested earlier but it did not show up so I assumed my period was late as my period is not very regular and I have had PCOS in the past.

I had my period begin on Nov 30, 2009 and go for about 5 days.  I have not had my period since. I have only had sex once since that period being last tuesday 5th January.  I have this 'feeling' that I am pregnant. I cannot describe it. My breasts have started to swell since yesterday and they are both sore now, I know this is a premenstrual sign also. I don't feel 'right'.  I just did a pregnancy test but it has come up negative.  I am assuming my HCG level would be far too low at the moment.  I dearly hope that I am pregnant. I was told by my Doctor a few short months ago that I am highly fertile. I also believe that the day I had sex on I was ovulating due to the discharge I had.

Any Ideas?

I OVULATED ON JAN 5TH.  THIS ALSO HAPPENS TO BE 6 DAYS BEFORE MY PERIOD IS DUE, WHICH WOULD BE TODAY.  I HAD SEX WHEN I WAS OVULATING AND I GOT SOME PRE*** ON MY HAND AND THEN PROCEEDED TO USE A LUBRICANT.  WHICH MEANS I TOUCHED MYSELF WITH THE PRE***.  WELL...ABOUT 5 DAYS LATER I HAD A CLEAR DISCHARGE WITH BROWN IN IT (YESTERDAY)  WHICH I THOUGHT WAS MY PERIOD.  BUT IT STOPPED AND I HAVENT HAD A DROP OF BLOOD SINCE.  I DONT FEEL LIKE IM GETTING MY PERIOD EITHER.  I TOOK A TEST THIS MORNING BUT I OVERSATURATED IT.  MY QUESTIONS ARE:

DO YOU THINK THAT WAS IMPLANTATION BLEEDING?
WHAT HAPPENS IF I OVERSATURATE A TEST?
HOW SOON CAN I GET AN ACCURATE TEST?

If the doctor says ur highly fertile test about 14 days from when u think u ovulated since ur periods are irregular if i caught that right...i too have PCOS.  I tested today and it was negative i probably have a cyst but my period is not due till jan 16th so on the 17th i will test if it has not arrived.  I was 6 weeks pregnant with my son before it came up positive on the other hand it was only 4 days after my implantation bleed that i found out i was pregnant with my daughter (which was a total shock as i had given up on pregnancy there are 8 almost 9 years between the two children) but i have horrible periods and never got started good so i thought what the heck i would take a test and i was totally shocked but very happy.  Unfortunately every women is different but generally a good rule of thumb is to test between 14 and 16 days after what u consider the time u ovulated...not everyone can tell when that is but if ur period does not arrive by then could be u r....hope all goes well for u...

1163719_tn?1263953908
First question was the lubricant water based...if is was not water based there is pretty could change that since it was very little the lubricant killed any viable sperm as they only responde to water based products...on the other hand if it was water based i have heard of women claiming to get pregnant with just that.(I on the other hand am not that lucky to be so fertile that a small amount would do it...LOL) ...It seems awful close to when ur period is due to have ovulated (are ur periods irregular?) If u dont start when u think u should be starting take a test...if however u did actually ovulate 6 days ago, i would give it another 8 to 10 days and if u dont get a period by then, i would test.  Not sure if u want to be prego or not but hope all goes the way u want..

Hello,

I'm new to this forum I'm glad to see everyone posting their expirences. Well here is my dilema. My last period was Dec 1st. I was supposed to have it on the 28th and it didn't come. I was sick and was taking medication and my husband and I have been trying to have a baby so I took a pregnancy test because I'm never late. It came up positvie, the I wasn't sure because of all the meds so I took another one the following day and it was negative, I was so dissapointed. Then I got what I thought was my period, but I've been spotting since the 30th, the first day was very very heavy then the next day got lighter. My period usually last 2 days with 1 day very light. Well I've been spotting since so it's been over a week, so I went to the doctor and they gave me a blood test it came up positive I stopped spotting yesterday well the spotting was kind of stringy like fluid. They think I might be having a misscariage I told my husband I was pregnant and he told everyone in our family, so now they are telling me I might be misscarying. I hope not because we've been trying for so long and this is the first time we've had a positive test and for them to tell me this just like nothing really breaks my heart. The way she said it was what hurt me the most, like it was no big deal. I just wanted to punch her... UGH!!! The level of my HCG was 32 on Friday and they ordered another one today, so now I'm waiting to find out and it's killing me. What do you ladies think?

1163719_tn?1263953908
I also have had a miscarriage but it was at 8 weeks pregnant and was relatively quick.  I woke up and just felt like something was wrong and flew out of bed to the bathroom and immediately started bleeding and within 15 minutes started having what were contractions.  What I do know is ur HCG level is supposed to double every day from the time u implant....so ur blood test will tell u what is up especially since u have had a blood test already....I know it is hard to keep ur wonderful news under wraps, but if it is a miscarry, i felt is was nice in the long run for everyone to know it help me get over mine and for people to know why i was upset.  By the way, my sister had a tubal pregnancy and three miscarriages but know she is on her third child in three years so even if it is a misscarry dont get down so much things might work out later....hope things go well for u.

Thanks for you reply. I really hope is not, I told my husband that the results were positve and he told everyone in the family that we were having a baby. It's so hard we've been trying for a while now, and are praying that everything is ok. This would be our first baby, I feel emotional a lot which is not like me, I feel nausea a lot, and shortness of breath. Wow! I'm glad your sister was able to have babies after all that; it does give hope, but I feel like I'm helpless if it is, my husband is so excited we are both in the military and don't have that much time to try. If it is a miscarriage we can't wait 3 months to try again, by then he'll almost have to deploy. UGHHHH!!! Sorry, I feel like crying but I can't since I'm at work.......so hard.

That is why i did not want to mention it at first..have they given u the results of the blood test yet...one other thing u said the results friday said 32...if u take another uring test and it shows positive then u probably r not having a miscarry because all the tests show from 20 to 50 units in your urine..if u r miscarrying then the it would show up negative because the units are lower than 20 which would be right on if friday it showed 32...if u feel u cant wait that long....hope things go well...hope the information helps...

oh one more thing if u r having a miscarry u r so early u dont have to wait 3 months to try again....u can try right away at least after mine that is what the doc told me...and if the doctor recommends a DNC to get u cleaned out take it..it is like a reboot of ur system and makes better incubater for the new fertilized egg.

†I have faith in the good Lord that it is finally my time..I just need to know when should I test again, or call the gyn† I am 23 years old and have been TTC almost 4 years since I got married. My cycle has always been normal..was a 23 day cycle until October 2009 when I had my appendix removed. After my surgery, my cycle was a perfect 28 days November and December. My last cycle started on December 5th which means I should have started on January 2nd. Sometime around the 2nd (don't remember exactly when), after going to the bathroom, I noticed two small dots about the size of the "o" while typing now..nothing more after that. I have taken 2 HPTs that have both came back negative. I have had moodswings, been urinating more often, have a white/clear slimey discharge( thought that was a yeast infection so I treated as if it was and it's obviously not because it's still there), and have had pains on my hip bones (more on left side than right..but both sides off and on)..but it isn't cramps..and its right on the bone lol. Just wondering if the spots I had could have been my implantation bleeding and I took the tests too soon..If so, when should I test again?! Thanks..God bless and baby dust to all. Praise Jesus!!

my suggestion is wait about a week to 10 days before testing again ur ovulation time might be off a little.  if u r pregnant it should show up positive by then or ur period should come by then...hope it helps...

I did take a test on Saturday morning and it said Positive, that's another reason why I am so hopefull. You have been more help than the nurses on base have been.  Am glad I wouldn't have to wait that long, but with God's help this will be our first.

Thank you for everything!

Did I mention I wasn't spotting anymore?

I have been researching and trying to find the answers to all my questions. This is a great site. I believe my last period started around the 23rd of December. I usually am anywhere from 29 to 30 days cylcle. We started trying on the 2nd of January and I thought I was supposed to be ovulating around teh 3rd, however I bought a ovulation test and it said that I was ovulating yesterday and now that I count back from when my period is due on or around the 22 it makes more sense. Is this right? Also we have being trying since January 2nd and I thought I might be pregnate but had a lot of negative results but if I am just now ovulating is that right? And how long should I wait to test for pregnancy? Thank you for any help.

That is probably right...unfortunately the time from the start of ur period to ovulation can very...what is very accurrate in normal women with no hormonal issues is that between ovulation and the start of ur next period is 14 days some doctors say 12 to 16 days.  Hope this helps...

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I lost my baby. They called me from the doctors office and told me that the HCG levels were going down and that if I started to bleed to go to the emergency room...

Thank you for your kind words and support.

We'll start trying again soon, I know my husband thinks is too soon, but I sure don't think so. The docotrs office said that I could start trying soon because it wasn't a late miscarriage.

Baby dust to all!

Hi, I am new to this forum thing. I have been reading up on many symptoms of pregnancy, and almost all apply to me. My breasts were very very sore from the 4th till the 8th. I could barely move, they hurt so bad. My cycle started on the 15th of last month, and has always been regular, starting off heavy and finishing light, usually lasting 4-6 days. On the 8th of this month, I experienced minor cramping and spotted(which never ever happens). It was brown with a little bit of pink to it, and only came once. Now it is the 13th and this morning I went to the bathroom and when I wiped, it was like a clear mucus with a dark pink, brown tinge to it. Only when I wipe. And that was it. Nothing else, I do have minor cramping though. I am very excited but nervous. On the 11th I took a first response test and it came out negative. Did I test too early? Is it possible I could be pregnant? I never ever get spotting. When should I test again? Please any information would really help me.

I am wondering if every women is has implantation bleeding and if when after ovulation does it typically start if you get it?
Blank
1163719_tn?1263953908
u tend to get implantation within 7 to 12 days of ovulation or just before when u would normal start ur period.  HOwever, it does not occur with all women...i did not get implantation bleeding at all with my son...and got a tinge of blood about 4 days before i tested positive with my daughter....i have heard some women have a couple days of light blood and some have nothing...generally test for pregnancy about 14 to 16 days from when u suspect u ovulated if negative give it another week to see if ur period starts if not try again....hope this helps.

Hey - I posted this on a new thread before I realized this one was here:

I'm wondering if anyone on here has experienced implantation bleeding?  I bled just a tiny bit on my toilet paper about a week before af was due, and so I thought it was coming, but then I didn't bleed again for 3 days.  When I started again it was a couple of hours after I felt a shrp pinching pain in my lower abdomen (not necessarily painfulPainful menstrual periods, and not a cramp).  The bleeding was extremely light for a day, only visible on toilet paper and a light pinkish colorColor blindness
Color blindness tests
Color vision test - then the second day it got slightly heavier, but still not enough to fill a pantiliner in an entire day.  That was yesterday, and last night the bleeding seemed to stop completely, but then it started again this morning - still really light, but this time it was actually really watery and dripping in the toilet.  It feels like I'm about to get AF, but then again I thought that two days ago...ususally I start with one light day then it comes full force, but this is now day 3 of light/intermittant and I'm beginning to wonder whether it is actually going to come at all.  I took a hpt this morning (I wasn't bleeding at the time) and it was bfn, is it still too soon to tell?  Anyone else have any experience with bleeding like this?

Ok so got full blown period today. Not upset though, got an OPK, since coming off BCP Im am so off!  I have been looking at that Chinese Calendar, hoping to have a girl, I already have 3 boys! My question is do I count when I started spotting on Wednesday night or today that I started bleeding fully?  Help, after three kids I should know these things but now that Im older its not happening that easily ;( and I honestly had such different experiences each time.

I am 38 almost 39 and things are not happening for me too well either...I am thinking from when u start spotting....but dont quote me on that..My two were different as well.  I have a son (almost 10) and a daughter 13 months...we would also like one more...lots of baby dust to u..i believe i should be starting tomorrow :( but hopefully it will go better this coming month for me...

1163719_tn?1263953908
Ok, it should be long enough for u to test for pregnancy if it was implantation bleeding....if it wasnt then it might have been a hemorragic cyst (i have them from time to time).  those sound like the symptoms i have for those and i generally have pink wiping for a couple of days after one burst....especially if u had some pain that didnt seem like cramps....hope this helps a little....

Thanks, baby dust back at you! Maybe if we stopped giving it so much thought and planning it will happen. I am also 38 will be 39 next month on the 24th.  It took me a while convince my husband for another baby.  He worries about my health, finances etc.. so of course every month that goes by I get nervous he will change his mind on me, hahaha.  so far he is excited and having fun trying :) I'll just try every day just to be safe , hahahaha. I guess I could just calculate from Wednesday on, seems to make sense. I was under the impression 1st day was the day actual bleeding started.

I would just like some input on my situation...
I noticed some pink discharge about two days ago, and I thought I may have a yeast infection or something. I've had yeast infections before, but never had pink discharge so I thought that was odd. Since then, I have been having very small amounts of brown discharge (looks like when I am just starting my period) but has not increased in flow or changed in color. I am also having some cramping, but nothing too terrible. I am not due to have my period for another week, however, and I am pretty regular so this is out of the ordinary for me.

I am on bc but don't always take it at the right time of day/occasionally miss a pill. I have researched my symptoms and it sounds like there's a bit of a chance it could be implantation bleeding. I am probably just freaking myself out, but you never know! I don't really want to discontinue taking my birth control because I feel like I may be overreacting, and I don't want to have to start up the pill again if that is the case. Would it be dangerous to continue taking my bc if I am actually pregnant?
Blank
1163719_tn?1263953908
My suggestion is to finish what u r on and wait for ur period....some birth control cause ovarian cysts with are nothing major but can be a bit painful and cause blood like that....when it is time for ur scheduled period then i would take a test...it should show up positive if u r pregnant...then see a doctor if is and discontinue the birth control... acouple of days of birth control pills will not make that much difference...hope this helps....if it has been about 10 days from the start of the blood u have seen u can also take a test now...the birth control will not change the outcome of the test....

Hi all! I'm very new here...found this site while investigating what the heck is going on with my body and just had to join! So I had AF Dec 24th, was ovulating on the 7th and am supposed to get AF again on the 21st. Last night, hubby and I made love, then after I noticed some brown discharge. It went away and I didn't need a pantyliner but I was cramping some...I woke this morning and there was nothing. I even did a cervical check to see if I had any brown discharge higher up, but there was nothing. About 3 this afternoon, I wiped and got light red with clear that was enough to need a pantyliner. As of right now (8pm) it has stopped again. I don't physically feel like I'm about to start my period, or on my period. I usually get about every symptom possible and my first AF day is usually quite heavy. I took a test this morning and it was negative and wasn't planning to take another until the 21st if I still don't have anything. I have very minor cramping once in a while but mostly just pressure right above my pubic bone. I have 2 kids right now and I've never experienced implantation with either or bleeding so I can't help but go a little crazy over this. Last month was the same way but it didn't go away, I ended up going head on into a normal AF. Is it common to have it with one pregnancy but not with others? I've had numerous symptoms of pregnancy as well...tender breasts, very tired, nausea, decreased appetite, dizzy and I even cried 3 times yesterday over nothing which isn't common for me. I'd absolutely love to say it could be the real thing, but I've been let down so much that I'm trying not to get my hopes up. I guess I just need to start counting down the days until I can take a HPT and hope that my symptoms don't start turning into more of an AF direction. I know every woman is different and everyone has symptoms at different times so it's hard to really know, but I'm happy to have somewhere that I can at least get a little venting out of the way on my journey :) Thank you for listening ladies and send any extra baby dust my way!

Quick update...I still have mild pressure above my pelvic bone, but no cramping, no spotting. Nothing! I feel great, don't feel like AF is even in the near future or anything. I've been following an ovulation calendar on my phone and when it said I was supposed to ovulate on the 7th, I did have the stringy stretchy discharge, then the date for implantation is today and I had all those symptoms as well. Wondering though if it's actually possible for people that have periods that are on the heavy side to have heavier implantation bleeding. I don't know if what I had was much considering some people get it for a lot longer than a day, I was just very convinced this afternoon when I wiped and it was the bright red that I was getting AF. To have it leave within 5 hours is not normal at all for me! Ok, end of vent...sorry ladies!

This is the first month that my husband and i have ttc.. My last period was on Jan 1st, I was supposed to ovulate around Jan 10th or 11th. On the 11th i had cramps on the right hand side. I suppose i ovulated on that day. On Jan 16 I noticed light pink discharge then the following day discharge was brownish. Im assuming it was implantation spotting. My husband and i dont want to get our hopes up just yet. Is it possible that at our first try we could be pregnant? We're a young couple does that help fertility? Should i take a hpt? So many questions!! I just need to know. Please help me out.

My last MC was on dec 17th and my next is due on Jan. 23rd ( 38 day cycle). I had spotting on Jan. 9th, but not much. It continued through the 15th, but not all day for the week...just a little in the morning or at night...no pantyliner needed. According to my ovulation calculator my most fertile days were from jan 2-6 and of course we took care of business then and even after :) !!  It is now only 5 days until my expected cycle and i am wondering if it is too early to test...should I wait to see if i miss my cycle? I have had some symptoms...headache, back ache, nausea, sensitivity to smells, and of course spotting, but I need your help!!

I'm currently TTC #1. We've been trying since August without success. This month was my first cycle on Clomid 25mg days 3-7.
My last period was on 12/22 and I have a 30 day cycle.
I had an ultrasound done last Tuesday 1/12 to see if the Clomid worked and everything looked great. On Wednesday 1/13 I had my progesterone level drawn and it was a 16.4. I was so excited because it has been low in the past. The doctor said that I definitely ovulated! : )
Well on Friday 1/15 I started having pink discharge. I don't even know if I would call it "spotting" because it's not every time I wipe. It's not even enough to have to use a panty-liner. The only other symptoms I had is... since last Wednesday I've had a light pressure feeling in my lower abdomen off and on. And Friday I had a headache and my lower back hurt. Also Saturday I slept all day because I was so tired.
I took a test yesterday morning and it came back negative. My period isn't due until Wednesday. It just confuses me because I'm NEVER early but sometimes I'm late.
Has anyone that's had this "spotting" or "pink discharge" ended up pregnant? When should I test again? Please advice. I'm praying hard that this is going to be our month. Praying for all you other ladies too. It's such a roller-coaster going through this.

I have been reading these and thought I'd post my own. My last period started abt Dec 16th. Xmas Day we started having unprotected sex and 6 days later I had major dizziness for several hours. I normally have very achy breasts and ever since they've felt totally great and not achy. I gained like 5 pounds and my pants would normally fit and be fine But if I'm sitting I now cannot sit with them buttoned at all. It totally hurts and feels so uncomfy I guess from bloating and maybe more if I'm prego. I was expecting my period around Jan 15th or 16th. I didnt have cramps leading up to when my period would start like normal and late Jan 14th I had like 3 drops of light pink. I planned to test that day and went ahead and it was neg. I was thinking it was IB, but then it got heavier on the 15th and still a bright red. I bleed heavily for my periods but this was still "light" for me (maybe heavy for others). I'm still bleeding with it heavier during the day and much lighter at night, but a pantyliner is all I need and mine are Never light enough till the every end for just a pantyliner. I'm bloated some, but otherwise feel great minus wearing jeans in public and my breasts are still not the normal achy. I'm trying to wait till after the bleeding stops to test again since they're so expensive, but any thoughts on if I could be prego? It's confusing me that if it's IB that it's happening right when my period would be here. Any thoughts?

Ok ladies so I have to ask this question because it's driving me crazy. For more history I posted a little farther up...

My AF is due Wed and last Saturday I had very light brown spotting that lasted about an hour. The next day I had a small amount of red that turned to about 5 hours worth of very light pink discharge that was enough for only one pantyliner. I don't feel like I'm on or about to start a period and my periods are always quite heavy. Today I have very light brown spotting again but (so sorry for TMI!) there really isn't anything there other than a fiberous material that looks kind of like a small group of thin brown hair. I know that was gross, but I'm wanting to know if anyone that has ever experienced implantation bleeding experienced this. I still have a mild pressure feeling only when I'm sitting but when I'm standing or laying down I feel like normal. I've had dizzy moments today, a headache for about the 4th day in a row and have been very tired. I'm usually one that has to take a high dose sleeping pill to even fall asleep by 12 every night. I don't know. I'm driving myself crazy. I've never had this fiber looking material. I'm hoping this doesn't mean my uterine lining isn't sloughing off and it might just mean our little one has implanted and this is the evidence. Please help ladies. Anyone who has experienced something like this?

Sorry i havent posted in so long. I've been doing a lot of research on the internet and catching up with doctors. I have an appt tomorrow to see the little poppy seed! I wish everyone luck on their quest to become pregnant. My husband and i had been trying to a couple years and when they told me i couldnt get pregnant is when i did. About 4 months later. I think the stress of trying and being dissapointed so much when that period comes or neg test has something to do with it too. Once i started to think about adoption and surragacy i got pregnant! Try not to stress~ Much love & luck

I tried another HPT and still negative!! I have been reading up alot on this matter, ok, you can have implantation bleeding around the time that your period is due and a test would not be positive until the egg has embedded and releases hormones, so most forums do suggest to do a test about a week later. Hope this helps!! I will try test again next week and let you all know, fingers crossed and for you all trying!!!

Hi. I've tried to concieve (conceive) last month and my periods 7 days late by now, which is not common for me. Two days before i did a home preg test in the morning which resulted negative. Yesterday i had some veeery light spotting, and today nothing, is this implantation bleeding? I have some pregnancy symptoms like swallen breasts, fatigue, frequent urination, cramps...

When should i test again?

I was wondering if Implantation bleeding can be red? I started spotting pink 2 days ago..only when I wipe and today I got a little red but not enough to even where a pad. I was due for my period 2 days ago. Does this sound like implantation bleeding or my period? It would normally not be this light. I also have really tendering breasts.

They say it's supposed to be a brownish color. Mine was more pink. Most women do not have implantaion bleeding though so who knows if mine was for sure. I am 5 weeks now though. The bleeding was on the 6 and it only happened one time when i wiped and it there was also cervical mucus in it also. They say to wait around 7 days until taking a pregnancy test. I took mine 8 days later and it was positive. So i would wait around 7 to take the pregnancy test. It could be implantation bleeding though. I would keep track of it to see if the flow increases or anything. :) Good luck if a baby is what you're hoping for.

UPDATE.
I took a hpt yesterday and it came out positive!!!
I still havent missed my period though, It should come around in 2 days. I read somewhere that i could test positive but if i test later on it could be a negative that its possible to have chemical pregnancy if the fertilized egg does implant into the uterine wall. Im worried!!

Hi, i am hoping i will be pregnant this month after loosing our baby at 19 weeks pregnant in July last year.  I have irregular periods rangeing between 24, 26 and 28 days.  I was last on on the 10th Jan so i averaged my ovulation to be around the 16th to 22nd.  We have had sex every other day since, so i am hoping not to come on (which should be the 5th feb) thats if its a 28 day cycle. im not sure if i should do a test for the 24 day cycle or wait till 28 days.  Hope every one who is trying stays positive as this could affect your chances of conceiving x

Read my sisuation above and please help I am stressed. I want a baby so bad. BUt I am on birth control which i Know will not help to make a baby but Doctor said I need to take it to help the cyst on my ovaries to go away.

My last AF was on Jan. 3rd.  My husband and I had sex on the 17th and on the 19th I had a little bit of brown discharge (saw it after I wiped).  I had a lot of constant cramping since about Friday and on saturday I again had browish/light pinkish discharge.  I continue to have cramping.  Could I be prego?  I just took a test and it was negative.......I'm wishing/hoping it's wrong though! :o(  Was it too early to test?

Hey Everyone! I'm happy that I was able to read all these post. I've also been trying to get pregnant for a little over 2 yrs now. I've been diagnosed with PCOS which I'm still trying to understand. I've done multiple exams and ALL test results come back that I'm healthy but have type 2 diabetes. I was bummed out when I first heard about this and decided not to even care about taking care of myself. A yr later now I'm trying to get fit. I even took a ultrasound and the doctors told me I got a "very healthy inside." Well my last period was sometimes before christmas...about a week before it. Now I am waiting to see if I miss my period. I'm not feeling any symptoms only major body aches and the strangest craving ever...I now love the smell of Irish Spring Soap even up to the point where I'm constantly having the craving to smell it all the time or even take a bite out of the soap. Even after I shower I have the irish spring soap smell on my washcloth & take it with me. Definitely interesting isn't it. About 2 wks ago I got some light spotting for about 2 days but not enough to wear pads. It soon disappeared and I swear shortly after I've been having those strange cravings. Anyways, I'm hoping that this is the time for me and my husband to have a baby!! I've been desperately praying and fasting about it. I hope that all goes well! I don't want to get all excited too soon because as soon I go buy a pregnancy test I start bleeding the next morning!! Anyways, Thank you for all your many post and I wish everyone the best of luck!!

go to google an type in free pregnancy tests.there is a site that will mail you 8 free ovulation tests an 2 free pregnancy tests.it takes 6 to 8 weeks,but that will give u time to see if AF is gonna come or not.my husband an I have a 6 year old an have been trying for 3 years to have another one.I am irregular with my cycle,but yesterday an the day before had a light pink discharge when I wiped, the same as most of you. This did not happen the first time,so I am assuming I am pregnant.The waiting game is the crappiest thing EVER,but it is something we all must do.Also,it does take time for implantation bleeding to occur,once the zygote implants,the cervix closes off,and occasionally a light stream of blood will leak through right before the cervix closes. to all you women who have tested an came up BFN, give it a week and re-test.let me know if this was any help,an thank you for your time!

1188526_tn?1266036090
if you have a regular 28 day cycle, you count 14 days from THE DAY YOU STARTED to find out when you ovulate. Sperm can live in the body,under the right conditions,for up to 5 days.I think you need to wait until your next AF is a week past due,and then test.If you've been under any stress, eaten unhealthy, or have ovarian cysts, these could all be reasons for the discharge.Also, have your iron levels checked for the veins.

yes ur ovulation test can be positive all that time as it counts ur hormones when u r ovulating..as long as the egg is viable..the egg can live from 6 hours to 24 depending on ur health and age...hope this helps...

Hello everyone,

Very happy to have found this board.

I'm 37 and lost my first pregnancy at 9 weeks on Jan 6th.  We waited two weeks after the D&C and started trying right away.  Yesterday I noticed spotting.  It's hard to calculate my last period date because of the D&C, but I have heard you can think of it as the date of you D&C if you miscarry.  Has anyone experienced this in terms of their cycles?  I'm wondering if I could have implantation bleeding.

Hey guys, I just wanted to see if anyone here had any actual results taken? I have missed my period, it was supposed to come on January 23rd, It'sI now the 27th and the only thing i've seen thus far is brown spotting. VERY LIGHT only show when I wipe. Not enough for a tampon. It started the 23rd and is still very faint till this day. I have taken a HPT but unfortunately all test were negative. How long should I wait before taking a blood test? Or should just wait a few more days to take another test? I believe its implantation bleeding. I've been trying for 9 months!

Hi everyone, I need some advice here.  I had some bleeding yesterday and none today, how long does implantation suppose to last?  Does this mean that I'm pregnant,  and when should I take the test.  I think my ovulation day was the 28 but I been having sex about one week before that, so does that mean I got pregnant about one week ago or, did I just got pregnant two days ago on the ovulation day?  I confuse please help me thank.

boy i am glad i found this forum. you all sound like me. i have been ttc since i miscarried in aug 09 and am finding it really hard to cope. i am obsessed with having a baby and dont know what to do every month wen i get my period.
this month i was due for my period on 28th jan, its now 31st and no period. on the due date of my period i was spotting brown, then it stopped, not enough to wear a pad, just frustrating as i had white undies on :0). my breasts are really really sore, but not darker i dont think, my nipples seem to always be hard???? anyone else ever had that?
i feel like i will get my period but its not coming, just like the last time wen i fell pregnant im not spotting anymore.
i am putting on weight unbeleivably and need to pee all the time. i dont want to test though as i hate getting negative results. i had a negative on the 27th the day before my period was due. any one give me any advice??? do u think i may be pregnant?

Hi wondering if anyone can help....ive had sore boobs (in a different way to normal, kind of tingly and sore) tummy cramps (although again different from normal) and im exhausted-which is very unlike me.

My peirods are always unregular, and never early in 18 years, but this month a week earlier than i was expecting it i have had very light brown spotting (saturday) then on sunday the blood was a more light pink colour, but still only a relatively small amount and now its stopped completely (by yesterday-monday)

Is it too early to take a pregnancy test? as using my usual cycle as a guide, i wouldnt even be due on till the end of the week. Am confused.

Been using the withdrawal method, by the way as not actively trying to get pregnant but it wouldnt be end of the world either.
