OK, so now I'm the confused one. I keep hearing that if it's FRESH blood then it's probably IB. OK....soooo what does every one's AF look like? I would venture to say that mine is bright red (and dark) isn't it supposed to be?.... old uteran lining or not?

I am dealing with the same questions.... I just spoke the nurse at my Doctors' and she said that "conception bleeding" is any color it wants to be - but if it is contiuous bleeding, thats not good... if you bleed, then stop for a few hours, then bleed a little more, then stop, that it sounds like "conception bleeding" what day are you in your cycle?

Kristina, I had that type of bleeding (bright red and darker) for 2 days at 5dpo. However, I also stopped BC a few days prior and that usually causes me to start AF but it's always for 5 days. Then a week later 4 days before AF on March 12th I broke out and cramped alot but no AF just one time lt brn streak in cm. Still now, no AF. A few weeks ago I hcg tested neg.

I had my LMP on March 11, lasted 4 days. Then started bleeding again on March 25 and still bleeding - not enough for a pad, but definetly for a panty liner. I Bd's on March 17, 21 and 23. I hope mine is "conception bleeding, but it seems to soon... what do you think? Did you stop BC so that you could TTC?

No, we wern't TTC I just recognized the day after bd that I was possibly OV'in ...started reading my NEW Minipill pack and realized I could very well have been OV. So, I stopped them as a precaution. Sounds to me like you have a BFP chance! What other reason would you be spotting for mid cycle? Has this happened in the past for you? If not, it could be IB and no, I don't think it's to early I've heard of it before.

You were smart to stop BC - just in case. :) The only other reason I can think of for my bleeding is ovulation bleeding, but I have neer had that before - I have never even spotted before. I came off BC in December and had a 39 day cycle and then another 40 day cycle. So, if this is IB, it would mean that I am back to a 26-28 day cycle and that I ovulated REALLY early. It may be a long shot, but I really hope I am pregnant! You and I my be in the waiting game together!

Looks like we are in the waiting game together. I'm thinking I should start AF sometime soon although, I don't have the usual signs. It also looked as if I OV again 13 days ago so, I guess that means my cycle started over. Lots of things just don't make sense. I'm not one of those people who ever have oddities in my cycle and I've been on and off the pill several times over the years. I guess there is no way of telling if it is your period or not? Has your bleeding stopped yet?
