Bleeding one week before period...

I am 49 years old, and in good health. My periods have been like clockwork, 28 days. My period isn't due until a week from now, but I started bleeding today - just like my period. Red, clotty bleeding. I had sex about 12 days ago (unprotected). I took an EPT today and it was negative, but as I said, my period is not due until a week from now. I am worried that it is implantation bleeding - but hoping it's just menopause! I have been having some night sweats lately. Any help as to what it might be?

Re: Bleeding one week before period...

It could be menopause, or it could be early for some other unknown reason. I doubt it's implantation bleeding, so try not to worry! From everything I know, implantation is quite light, and usually a pink or brown color--what you had sounds quite heavy. Also, if the hpt came back negative, I would trust it.
