10 days after my period and...
...this morning I noticed that I had bled all over the sheets, but I was alarmed because the blood was definitely not typical menstrual blood and was a brownish/orangish color and much more watery in consistency. My periods have been very regular since going off the pill several months ago. My husband and I are not exactly TTC full-fledge, as in we are not having unprotected sex every waking minute in hopes to get pregnant immediately, but we had unprotected sex 3-4 times within the 10 days that my period ended recently and have done so a few times in the past as well. To clarify, we would be happy if I got pregnant.
I am not sure what to think of this, as this has never happened to me before. It seems to me though that this is awfully soon after my period (10 days after?) to have any sort of odd symptoms that could be related to pregnancy Upon waking up, I had no blood flow and it all just seemed to occur overnight, but I have had some very slight cramping and am a little bloated, (but the bloating could be due to the fact that I am a bit dehydrated after returning yesterday from a 10-day trip overseas). However, to suddenly have some sort of "breakthrough bleeding" for no reason is just odd to me considering that it was quite a bit of blood and was definitely not just spotting. I should also add that during my regular periods I rarely ever bleed through this much during the night due to the fact that blood is usually thicker in consistency and not quite as heavy of a flow.
Any ideas what this could be? I definitely feel like it is too soon to take a pregnancy test and am not sure if it is even affiliated with pregnancy in the first place.
