So I know my last post I said I got AF...well I spotted brown from 5pm-10pm hardly anything, filled 2 Super tampons from midnight until 8am and 8am til 3pm... Put another in at 3pm and it was so dry it hurt so an hour later I took it out and only a few blood drops on it. Had a pad in since and nothing and nothing when I wipe when I pee either...is this odd to anyone else? I have mild cramps but no real AF symptoms other than that and bloat. I guess I did just got off bc 6 weeks ago could that be it? This is gonna frustrate me! Maybe it will come and go for a few days? What do you think? I'm tempted to poas I have one frer left... Wwyd?

it sounds like you did in fact get your period, especially if you soaked through 2 tampons. did you just come off of bc?

Hi thanks for replying. Let me clarify - I didn't soak through 2 tampons I just had normal blood on them. Nothing heavy or anything. Yes, I have been off birth control 6 weeks and this is the first sign of blood since infact in like 9 months what do u think? Can it really only last 24hrs and be a period. My bf is concerned too.

Maybe it's just very light and short. Maybe it will pick back up. I've had a few periods to where it would only be 3 days long and extremely light. Some are just weird.

Well some BC can make your uterus lining not build up as much so maybe your lining is still light. I have never had a one day period but your body is probably still trying to work the hormones out after getting off BC so I would guess this is the cause. Depending on the BC it can take a few months for your cycles to normalize. I would order some cheap test strips and ovulation test each day so you will know as soon as you start ovulating again or check daily for EWCM.

let me quote you... "filled up 2 super tampons by 8am" so technically you "soaked" 2 super tampons... and those things are huge... so yesi agree with the others its probably your body getting back on track from bc... maybe using a tampon may have slowed it down and made it look like wasnt much blood... hope you find the answers you arelooking for.. and things work out for youi.. best of luck to you..and me being the poas addict iam... i would poas...just tosee... who knows?..every womans body is different....

You were on the mini pill it makes you lining thin, some women (me when I took it) would have no period at all not unusual with mini pill. It would be like having a light period after an annovulatory cycle.
