I know that we don't get an actual "period" but rather light spotting, or ib. "AF" showed up last night around midnight when I wiped after using the loo. It was just a little bit and it was pinkish. DH and I had u.p. s_x , after which af seems to go on as usual. I read that s_x can irritate the cervix at this point, if I am pg, which may also cause some bleeding. I have other symptoms,. nausea, tiredness, sore bbs, fuller bbs, and dizziness. I had some mild cramping with it and I usually get the kind of cramps that have me keeled over in bed and I can barely walk. It wasn't enough to use a pad until about and hour after I woke up. Ladies, please offer any advice you may have!! Thanks!!

When was your last period? If you are due for one now then it could be IB, this happens around the time of your next expected period, or a few days before. You have many positive symptoms. When you are pregnant your cervix is very sensitive and s_x can cause light spotting, so you are right it could be from s_x. If I knew how far along you thought you were I could answer better.

Thanx!! My last period was on the 2nd or 3rd of last month. I don't really keep track I just know that it is usually in between the 2nd and the 4th is when it starts. And yesterday my cervix was high and soft, that is if I judged it according to what I read online. What do you know as far as that goes? It seems heavy when I wipe but I have had a pad on for about an hr now and barley a little pink spot. I usually use super tampons the first 3-4 days (it usually lasts about 5) and I have to change them almost every 3 hrs because my flow is usually heavy. I just hope it is IB. Becasue if I counted it right my ovulation day was 5/19 and we have had ups almost every day since then. I also have some mild cramps but not even really cramping, so much as a kind of an light annoyingly dull pain. And like I said, I usually have REALLY bad cramps. My dr. prescribes vicoden for me because I am allergic to ibprofun and nothing else works. Thanks for your help!!

I forgot. My ovu day was the 19th I think but we started the ups on the 18th. And we didn't even realize it was my ovu day until I figured out how to count them a week later.

Sound rea__suring to me!! Could be IB. Has your DR. told you why your periods are so bad. I have a friend who had the same thing extreamely painful periods, she was just diagnosed with endometriosis. Just something you should check into, it can also cause fertility problems. There is a website that is very informative about cervical positions you should look at. http://ibabydust.com/cervical.asp.

My doctor told me when I started the bad cramping, about 17 that it was fine, I just get really bad cramps. As the day goes on and it is a little after 12 noon, the pad is only a little bit saturated, mostly in the front. It is bright red tho and it just looks a little different then my usual. But then when I wipe I get a bunch on the TP, like it just hadn't gotten to the pad or whatever. There are a few little tiny clots in it too. I feel like it is just my period and I am just hoping its not so it looks wierd to me. Oy vey. Thanx for the website info. I was right it is high, and squishy so I don't know what's going on. Isn't it supposed to be low and hard right before your period? And I checked yesterday afternoon and O could barely reach it , so its def high, and it was squishy. I checked just now and its still really high bit it kinda feels like a little marble? Does this sound wierd or what? Thanks for your responses Kim, I REALLY appreciate it!

I forgot to add something. The cramps haven't stopped but its not even really painful but more like annoying. A little twinge here or there will be a little painful but thats it. And I have a low pain tolerence to begin with. I still feel nausea too. I'm going to have my bf check my cervix when he gets home. He has no idea what its "supposed" to feel like and I will go based on what he says so that way I cant get what is and what i want mixed up! LOL Ok this is going to sound ewwie but here goes. I am also getting pain in my bum . And I mean, like it hurt when I pooed. It wasn't quite consitpation but it just hurt. Does this make any sense? I feel like I should be able to answer these questions because I have read so much lately but I'm so confused. I'm new to all of this. I have 2 nieces and sisters but I don't want to tell anyone yet becasue they will freak out. My bf and I arent married yet. Kim, thanks so much for your help!!

KIm, I figured out what my bum pain is from another thread on one of the forums. It's spasms called "proctalgia fugax". But they apparently don't have anything to do woth pregnancy. It's just whetehr or now one happens to be the "lucky" one to get them grr.
