Hi Everyone! I am hoping someone may be able to help answer some of my questions and give me some insight. I am 22 yrs old and I have been on Ortho Tri cyclen for about 8 months now. My period was coming very regularly as scheduled. My last period ended around the 24th of November. My husband and I had unprotected sex ( meaning no condoms) many many times during the month of December. Right before I was due to get my period (approx. 3 days before) I had some spotting. It started off a light pink colour then darkened to brown. It was much lighter than my period, but enough to wear a pantyliner. My periods are usually quite heavy and red.And it really only appeared more when I wiped when using the washroom. The spotting was accompanied my some cramping and a bad back ache so I thought that I was in for a doozie of a period. The spotting lasted about 6 days but the cramps only lasted for about 2 days. Around the 20 of Dec I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative but that was before the spotting. My period still has not come. I have been extremely tired, sleeping 8-9hours at nite and taking 2-4 hour naps after work. I have also felt kind of bloated and my back ache comes and goes. I have also noticed that the blue veins in my breasts seem much more evident. Now my questions are: Does this sound like implantation bleeding? How long does implantation bleeding normally last? And when should I take another pregnancy test?(Is it too soon to test?)Or could it be "breakthru" bleeding as I know happens with being on the pill on occasion? Any other information on pregnancy symptoms and implantation bleeding would be greatly appreciated as all the sites I have been on offer different information. Thanks to everyone who takes the time to answer my questions.

I would retest or better yet go to the Doctor to test. I am also on Ortho Tri too, I wouldnt think that eight months later it would cause any such issue. Sounds like implantation bleeding to me, but just to be sure I would go see the Doctor.

Good luck and I would defiantely suggest going seeing your doctor. It does seem odd that after 8 months of the same birth control that this would happen.

thoughts are with you

It sounds like implantation bleeding to me. I agree to go to the doctor and get a blood test. Good luck!!

Thanks for the advice everyone! I took another test yesterday morning and it was still negative, so I am going to see the Doc today. I hope I get an accurate result from him anyways. When my sister became pregnant she went to the doctor 3 times to get both urine and blood tests, all of which came back negative. She didn't get her period for 4 months and finally when the test did come back positive , she was indeed 4 months pregnant. I hope that I don't have to go through with that but genetics are a funny thing I guess. Anyways wish me luck. And thanks again for the advice and the nice wishes!!
