Is it implantation bleeding or just in between bleeding?
Hi there!

I am 25yrs with one child. I had my last period on April 3rd and my cycle normally lasts 28 -30 days and is very regular. This month I had ovulation pains on April 15th and did the 'deed' unprotected on April 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th and 19th. Late last night, I noticed a bit of brown/pinkish discharge (very minimal amount). This morning, it was a bit more (needed a liner) and dark brown/maroon. I am just concerned b/c my period isn't due until a week from now and I have never had spotting or in-between bleeding ever. I do have slight cramping but nothing bad. I was hoping it might be implantation bleeding but does this seem too heavy to be that? My flow is normally very heavy days 1-3. As  much as I want to  be pregnant, it doesn't sound like it this time around.

Any advice as to what could be causing this?
Thanks!

Hope someone reads this!! I need advice or something! My last period was feb 2 to the 8th and it was normal. I had sex on the 4th and quite a lot more after. I am on the Pill but I forgot to take it a couple of days. I thought I was pregnant Bcuz I was randomly throwing up after I ate a few times in feb and got excited when I didn't get my period, but I got it a day late on march 2, a Friday , and it was a dark dark red almost looking black color and it was quite a lot, then on Saturday it was dark with a pinkish color but by the evening I hardly had anything anymore and on Sunday morning I have practically nothing when I wipe. I cramped a little bit but I am do confused! My period normally last for about 5 to 6 days And this time it was like a day and a half.. Am I pregnant??

If I ovulate late in my cycle say on like day 35 and than have a uncharacteristicly light period and then 7 days later have a bloated slightly crampy day, could that be early ovulation sigh? Than I have sex that day and then 6 days later have blood in a fertile type mucus, could that be implantation?

I confirmed at doctors two weeks ago that i was 4 weeks pregnant after light bleeding i had an internal scan last Wednesday 27th June, everything looked fine, more bleeding on Thursday night went up to a and e who booked me in for a scan Friday morning again everything looked okay but the lady doing the scan said she could see slight bleeding, Friday there was no bleeding, come Saturday, Sunday and Monday i was bleeding quite heavy dark brown blood with lumps of dark sticky stuff (sorry about the details) then since Monday I've had quite a lot of spotting. Going for another scan in 5 days. I personally feel like we have suffered a miscarriage, but I've had no pains in my belly at all! Breasts are still tender and belly still swollen so Im very confused. I have mentally prepared both myself and my husband to expect the worst at the scan in 5 days. What does everybody else think? X

I have a similar situation I was ovulating and my boyfriend and I were being intamite and sometime within the four days I believe we conceived. but I'm not entirely sure tests are coming up negative but I've had signs of what lOoks like implantion bleeding the brownish, pink, and now a lighter red than my normal period. I usually have a rediculously heavy flow like Change a tampon every hour. But if this is a period then it's very light and a week early. I started the spotting 5 days after the first night we had sex and it hasn't stopped since. Could I be pregnant or is this just my period being dumb cause i also stopped taking birth control about 2 weeks ago.

Hi on the 30 June I got  my period and ended on the 6th july, my partner n I have had unprotected sex from after the 6 th to now(4th August) i cant remember when but it was more than a handfull of times. A week after my period came my boobs were like as if I was breastfeeding( got to other children so I know Wat this feels like)n it's been on n off again, also ive been bery tired n bloated very crapy n my lower back n abdonen, my period never came on the 30 July which I have a 28 day cycle! Then today I went to the bathroom felt like period pain n when I wiped there was blood wasn't dark dark but when I looked into the toilet I noticed a small clot ( sorry) I've been since to the toilet several times n its light blood nothing really on my pad, also still crampy in my back like if it was my period, so I was wondering if it is my period that came, I've miss carried or can u still implant after your period is due?

Hello Everyone, my name is Kayla and my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for more than 8 months now with no luck. My period is not very regular nor has it ever been (which makes the process even harder) and typically I tend to have longer cycles 32-35 days give or take.  my last period was Nov 8 and lasted about 8 days! (Which was long because typically my periods are about 4-5 days!) anyways, we had sex during my ovulation week according to my handy app! And now I feel pregnant. I wake up wanting to vomit and my breast are very sore to the touch... The issue is I started bleeding as of yesterday and I don't know If its just period or Implantation... I am feeling cramps . When I first wipe its there but then later on in the day i wipe and nothing . I've also been using the bathroom a lot to pee! How soon should I test for the best results?! Thank you so much ahead of time!!

I had unprotected sex the 6th of January and I spotted a pinkish discharge on the 17th of January. I was supposed to have my period the 25th of January but instead spotted a dark brown and I put a tampon in because I thought it was the start of my period and it never started I just spotted for 4 days like that. Then it started back up 2 days later with a light red and brown discharge but only when I wipe. I'm always regular, I haven't been stressed, and I have slight cramping once in awhile..  And i have taken 3 negative pregancy test in the last 3 days.. Anyone know of anything?

What is a bfp? I have also experienced this. At first it was dark red but not heavy as my periods usually are. This turned into light pink in the matter of the same day. Now its my 6 day on and off pink to brown. In the beginning i passed some very smallll clots. Im hoping to be pregnant. I am not sure when to test, I am thinking the 8th. What do you guys think?

i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on 1st feb, he did not ejaculate in my vagina. i had light bleeding for a day and a half after 4-5 days. is that a sign of pregnancy or because of the contraceptive pill taken by me a few days back (after having unprotected sex for the 1st time on 13th jan)?
please help me with this i dont want to get pregnant.

Hey girls, I know this is a really old discussion butt i'm curious. I know implantation bleeding is normally about a week before your period and is supposed to be only 2 days of spotting. I just had a MC in April/May but my cycles are usually regular. This month my period came on time but it was very light, I had protected sex that first day then it picked up on the second day to a medium/heavy flow, then the morning of the 3rd I started spotting rusty brown blood with alot of clear discharge, this alonr lasted 4 days. My periods are normally 4 days, medium/heavy flow.. Any ideas?

Ok so here's my story. I had my last normal period September 27. And today's date is October 30th. On September I was getting ready for bed that night and wiped and ah pink watery discharge. The day before t period. The day of my period I had the pink again in the morning and it went away. At night I had dark brown spotting. Not even enough to fill a panty liner or bleed through it. My periods always start off very heavy and stay heavy for 9 days. Yesterday (one day late of my period) I spotted bright red. And have been having bright red for two days now. It isn't heavy. It doesn't spot on my panty liner. It like stays up there until I wipe with toilet paper. And then it shows up on the toloet paper. Idk what's going on. I took a test and it was negative and Im 3 days late. It just isn't my normal period. It doesn't smell, doesn't feel like my period. It is so light. I've been having tiny cramps. Nothing like my period cramps where I have to sit down. There cramps like oh something is tingling a little. Then it's gone and comes back on and off.

Hi, I am 32 years old. I am married for around 3.5 years and so we thought of planning for a baby around 4-5 months back. Due to the age, we thought of consulting a gynae. I met her on the 10th day of my MC. She told me to have folic acid tablets and couple of others. I took the medicines for around a week but then while searching over the internet, I found on a web page that one of the other tablets she suggested must be avoided if you are trying to conceive.So I stopped taking them. Later that month, I had my MC on a regular cycle of 25 days with normal flow.
But after that normal MC, I had my AF twice and both started on 21st day of cycle. Moreover, the flow is not normal like before and only lasts for 2-3 days max with dark red/Brown light spotting and then little bit of small clots on day 2 and day 3 again very light. I am very confused since I want to conceive ASAP but not succeeding.

Thanks for reading all through this.
