Hey ladies!

So, I'm pretty sure AF decided to visit me starting last Saturday, however it was a week early, and somebody brought it to my attention that it could be implantation bleeding. I'm almost positive it's not, I just don't feel like it could be...and it's been more than just spotting. This is going to get to be TMI so I warn in advance...

Ok so I have NEVER had a 28 day cycle, my regular cycle is about 36 days usually. I had a pap on January 30th, everything is good...Dr. told me to start taking prenatal vitamins with folic acid since we are actively TTC, but that I wasn't going to get any help for a whole year so that I had to try on my own, even though we have already been TTC for about a year and a half off and on.

Saturday, the 22nd, I just felt like I was leaking fluid or something, so I went to the bathroom...pink on my panties red on my TP. Was just like hm that's odd, it has been EXACTLY 28 days since my last period...odd since I've never had a 28 day cycle unless I was on the pill and even then it was usually longer.

Well, this period is very light compared to what I'm used to, like a fresh pad every 3-4 hours. I have only had to change pads like once a day, sometimes not even that..but it's red. Not brown, not pink...Red. And it's not only on my TP, there has been some on my pad and in the toilet when I'm done peeing. But no clots. Also, it's more like a red syrup....like it's stretchy kinda sometimes, but just a few times...it smells different. I know that's odd for me to tell you, but I mean blood smells like blood haha, and it doesn't really smell bloody...not like normal, I guess because it's so much lighter, the smell isn't as strong? I did get cramps, but they were nothing compared to the period cramps I usually get. Actually, I had no AF symptoms this time around. Usually I get intense cramps, acne, bloated, and gassy. I have had a headache just about every day for the past almost two weeks, just figured it was because I ovulated.

The timing would be about right for implantation bleeding. We BDed on 2/2, 2/4, 2/9, 2/13, and 2/20 and they say 6-12 days after is when implantation usually occurs. I was supposed to ovulate the week of the 9th...

I'm pretty sure this is a period, I mean I have changed some things so I think my body is trying to catch up and change cycle lengths too. I quit drinking caffeine in October, started watching my caloric intake after my dr appointment, have started drinking water instead of sprite, and I quit my job...

I have no intentions of testing until I either start getting symptoms, or I miss a period...I am 99.9% sure this is just a period...but there is that tiny voice in the back of my mind saying, hmmm what if? I also know that prenatal vitamins don't regulate cycles, so I know it's not that.

Just looking for some opinions for other people, I don't do anything that would harm a baby if I was pregnant, which I HIGHLY doubt, so no dr for me..just curious!

OH! And it was there at like 10 this morning, but isn't here now..and I've heard implantation only lasts a few days usually. So yea..

Probably is AF but you could take a pregnancy test to rule out IB.

I kinda figured AF too. It would be nice, but I feel like it would have happened too soon. Not in a bad way, just like I didn't have to wait after my appointment...there's no way it could have happened this fast.

I take baby aspirin because I get inflammation due to my fibromyalgia. I just use as precaution since I know how my body gets.

Yes I did get af last cycle.

I would take a test just to rule it out. How many days did this "bleeding" last?

By now, I would think you'd have a positive if you were indeed pregnant. If not, chalk it up to a wonky AF. I've never experienced IB, so I cant say I know what its like...but I know for some women it is common!
