Sounds like implantation bleeding but you'll never know for sure until you test positive.  It all depends on the sensitivity of your test if it's too early.  Some women don't test positive until after AF is due.   So, good luck and keep testing!!

I have been spotting for about 4-5 days before my peroid for the last 5 months and it's driving me  NUTS!!!  I always think it's implantation bleeding and then I am always disappointed.  I was wondering if ANYONE out there has ever had this consistant problem every month but still been able to concieve and if you did get pregnant did you spot that month???????  PLEASE SOMEONE RESPOND

I hope for you it IS actually implantation bleeding but I always hate that I think that :)

Hi, I too am a spotter. I have been spotting for about 10 months straight!  I did manage to get pg, but it ended in mc.  When I found out I was pg, I did not believe bc I had so much spotting I thought I was on my period.  I talked to my doctor about this and he said it was normal, it was just hormones.  Not very helpful I know, but at least it is not uncommon! Best Of Luck!

I would get spotting before my period too...not all the time, though.  I was on Clomid this cycle and this morning, I saw blood on the tissue...it's dark blood, but there was a lot of it, and there was no way that it is implantation bleeding.  I feel that this is really AF showing its ugly head--again! So, I guess you will have to wait a little bit longer.  If you still do not get your period, go ahead and test again...if possible a blood pregnancy test to be more accurate.  (I said that because when I first got pregnant with my 5-year-old daughter, all of my urine pregnancy tests were negative until I was 20 weeks pregnant.  Unbelievable, but true...my doctor's explanation was, I was not producing as much HCG as I was supposed to.  The test could not detect it from my urine.)
