I spotted 2 weeks before my period...what does that mean??
Hi there,
  Just was wondering if anyone could answer this question for me??  
  My husband and I are trying to get pregnant, and each and every month we are disappointed.  My question is this. What does it mean when I spot about 9-10 days before my actual period??  I have not tried using any calendars..or anything like that. I just count the days and go from there.  Could I be pregnant??  I have no other syptoms...I am tired but that is nothing unusal.
  Now this spotting was brownish in colour and it was more on the toilet paper then on the sanitary napkin.  I feel really stupid asking these questions...but I guess it is how we learn.  Also the spotting happened for one day then nothing the next, then it happened for 2 days after that...then nothing...could it just be my period early...or WHAT??  LOL LOL....I am 32 and my husband is 40, so we are really wanting a baby...please feel free to write me at ***@****.  I would really appreciate any help, advice...and please remember I dont not know of other techniques then the 14 day after is the best day method...
Thanks for all that read and can help

I have a question, I am two weeks away from my "off" week with my birth control. I started what seems to be a period (which is weird because i have not had a period like thin in a while) should i continue taking the rest of my pack and then continue like normal after my week of placebos? ... is there a possibility that i could be pregnant?

I am 35, I have one child he is 14. I should start my period in about 4 days. Yesterday there was a very light pink on the TP. But nothing else. Then today same thing a real light pink on the TP Only. No cramps, and really no other signs of my period except being cranky. but really sore boobs and my husband said my nipples taste sweet. All this stuff is so confusing. I took a test 3 days ago and 2 days before that one (first response) and both said negative. Please help :)

To those who are having spotting issue a week to 2 prior to their period, i have a doctor's opp. on 8/23. I will let you now. I am on the pill and have been on it since the age of 18. I am now 32. I have what I call 2 week periods for at least the past 4 months and it's really getting annoying. So... I will post back up here when I get some answers.... 11 days :)

Hi Merit, Ifound your question because i am experiencing the same problem. The difference however is that i am not trying to get pregnant i1m 31 no child and my husband is 40. I spott for two weeks or more before i have a regular period and it mskes me so tired. I notice however that this happens when i am really stressed or worried and often times i am not aware of how stressed i am until i start going through thid phase. Maybe some vitamins will help or just finding out if you are worried about something. maybe you are even worried that you will not get pregnant and that's affecting you.

Me & my fiance are trying for baby #2! Well this last weekend (Oct. 8th, 8 days after 1st baby dance of cycle) I started spotting a little bit, pinkish colour than on monday the 10th I had a bit more spotting. Its getting me a bit anxious & excited but I dont want to get my hopes up. The only "symptom" I have is nausea, and tired, but I think thats because I have to chase after my 14 month old daughter around.

I'm hoping that it is what I think it might be, but I have 8 days until my next AF. I hate the waiting game.

Thanks everyone. =)

ok me and my boyfriend has been having unprotected sex for 4 months, and i have a embarrassing question i spotted 9 days before my period witch starts dec 20th.

anyway i used the bathroom and i cleaned off my self down there and the was light blood on the toilet paper and i thought i was starting my period so i put a tampon in and like 4 hours later i pulled it out and there was NOTHING on it, so i really dont understand what was happening in that situation. well im not having any pregnancy symptom other then peeing alot but i had the flu like a week before and i thought it was just the virus still passing through but it hurts when i stop peeing and my side hurts a lil sometimes. i just need some good advice or something,

thanks for any help

Hey me and my husband are trying to get pregnant. I just got off the pill last month. I spotted about a week early the first month. I was just wondering if I would still ovulate? Even if I didn't have a period.  Any answer would be helpful!!

You could do.  They used to advise waiting 3 months for your periods to regulate before trying for a baby after coming off the pill but then they changed it and said you're better off trying straight away as you will probably be more fertile - so by that I take it that you must ovulate straight away after stopping.

I am so glad that I found this site and had the chance to read all of your stories, now I know I am not alone and that there are many others out there dealing with the same thing as me. Me and my fiance have been having unprotected sex for 3 years but have been really trying to get pregnant for the past year, but I wont lie for the first 8 months we werent doing everything right as far as ovulation because I was given the wrong information. But anyways I got my period on Nov.23rd and it normally lasts about 4 or 5 days and then goes away for a day or 2 then comes back for a day. It lasted longer this time though it lasted 10 days. My fiance and I had sex the day before i started ovulating and 3 more days after that. On Dec.31st I started "spotting" I guess you could say, just like all of you it was a light brownish and pink color, I noticed it when I went to the bathroom so I put on a pad and went to bed, the next day there was nothing on the pad but everytime I went to the bathroom the same thing light pink or brownish when I wiped. Then by Jan. 1st just before midnight there was nothing.Then on Jan.3rd it happend again but it seemed like sometimes it was more like a discharge (very jelly) and other times it was more dry but ONLY WHEN I WIPED. That lasted 4 days until the 6th. I took a Pregnancy test on the 3rd which I know was silly but every month I get my hopes up and it was negative. But from reading your comments I now know the body takes 4 weeks to realize its pregnant and that makes me feel a lot better. I have been very tired, A LOT of nausea everyday, 3 days ago I couldnt get out of bed I was SO nauseated, but I am not throwing up just feel like Im going to, and my back and shoulders and breasts are very sore...even though I am pretty sure I know all I can do is take another test and wait I am still hoping someone can help me, someone thats gone through this and has results, I notice a lot of older posts and I am wondering what happend with those woman. I am thinking my next step should be to get another pregnancy test, does it matter if it is the most expensive one? Is the best time to do it really first morning pee? I want to make sure I am doing everything right so my results are correct and hopefully POSITIVE! I will let you all know when I find out but please someone help me with my next step...What do I do? ~Kayleigh

Please help I'm so confused if it's implantation bleeding or what. O and I have had like two or three cramps not bad ones. But usually I get one little cramp a week before I start and I didn't. Sorry so long I'm just confused.

Hi, you have described what is happening to me. I realize you posted this a few months back.  May I ask, what happened, where you ovulating, was it implantation, or did you get pregnant? Please let me know because I am anxious to know myself. I've been spotting very lightly for the past 6 days and my period doesn't start until the 29th.

Hello, just looking for opinions. I have a very regular cycle. My last period was march 11-14th. I have had sex on the 7th as well as the day after. I am currently on the pill but it is a higher dosage then before. Today I went to the bathroom and noticespd I was lightly spotting. Although it didn't last for more then a half an hour and wasn't enought to wear a pad I'm a little concerned. I'm not due for a period until April 8-12. Any help?
