cramps, spotting, late. halp.

Okay, so, in a nutshell I never really track my periods much, the cycle lengths fluctuate by a few days some months, anywhere from maybe 29 to 31 or 32 days if I had to guess. LMP began (estimate) September 13 or 14, of that I am confident. Going by that I'm on about day 35 of my cycle. Yesterday I had pink spotting, today it's brown. Probably not even enough for a pantyliner. But I have had mild cramps (never really painful) consistently for the past week. Yes I would like to be pregnant. I took a test earlier this week, it was negative, but I jumped the gun. I'm afraid to take another one because I really would hate to see a BFN. I'm afraid this is my period.

Has anybody had this experience? If so, how did it end up? In the back of my mind I'm hoping this is implantation bleeding but with the rarity of that, not to mention the period-like cramps, I don't want to give myself false hope. Thanks for any feedback.

Hi lmp06,

I'm afraid I don't think it's implantation bleeding, that happens anywhere between 8 - 12 days after ovulation which for you would have been around the end of September sometime.

It's possible maybe you didn't ovulate this month and that's why you have the funny bleed and are late.

Sorry it's not a better reply but I'm not expert by any means xx

Yes, I guess that's true, if I ovulated at the right time I'm a few days past when implantation would have happened Thank you for your reply just the same.
