Implantation Bleeding Or Early Period SO Hard To Tell

I started "spotting" about 8 days before I was supposed to get my period. It has been going on, on and off for the last 4 days. Its only enough to fill about a liner a day, and the blood had all been brown, started out dark brown, and the last 2 days have been a really light brown/tannish color (sorry if tmi) and then this morning it was still tan on the liner but with tiny specks of red... its definitely not like a normal period, there hasnt been any "fresh" blood. Any one who has had a similar experience...please share, i have 5 days to wait until my period is supposed to come and I know its too early to test....

From what I have read, implantation spotting only occurs for one day and usually doesn't flow enough to notice it more than when you wipe. Here's a link that explains the types and causes of mid-cylce spotting/bleeding... beyondfertility.com/art238.htm ... Good Luck!

The same thing happened to me last week. I had spotting on the 24th and 25th of Jan. (I believe 7 and 8 DPO). However, my spotting was like a light brown discharge, and only once, when I would wipe, I would see a light red on the TP. I did test whe I saw spotting and got a negative. My period is due on the 31st of Jan, and if I do not get my period after that, I will test. I haven't really had any other signs of early pregnancy except for a little bit of constipation, and mild cramping.

Keerthy- Sounds like you and I are on the same exact boat....except I spotted only on 24 and 25. I guess we can wait until after the 31st together :)

yeah..... will do that... went to the doc last week ... i was asked to give a blood test last week... got the report today... obv it was a neg as it was tooo early to test! but another shocking news was that.... i was told my MCV is low... mean corpuscular volume... and was told to take vitamins... god save me!!!! i am feeling am not preg,,, nomore hopes !!!!!

Keerthy, Keep your head up! That blood test doesn't mean much. At BEST 1/27 was when you would have shown + in blood, and low MCV has nothing to do with the amount of hCG circulating in your system...Question...are you on a pre-natal vitamin right now? That may help with your low MCV. Mucho baby dust to you my friend!!

just a little update... after the spotting this morning, it completely stopped. so i went to my first cla__s, which was an hour and a half long. and when i was standing in the hall after cla__s, i just felt this gush. so i ran to the bathroom real quick, and it was just bright red blood, dripping, fast, enough to cause me to worry... but as mysteriously as it started it stopped. Now i have NOTHING again!!! still 4 days til my period is supposed to come... i have no clue wats going on, and its so frustrating!!!

Hi vagymnast, I don't want to take away your hope but honestly, that sounds like an early af to me. I also had spotting at 8dpo which has never happened to me before. But the spotting has continued til today (now 10dpo) and my temps have started to fall so af is almost certainly on the way. I guess our bodies can throw us a curve ball every now and then, even when we think we're pretty familiar with our cycle. Good luck, I hope it sorts itself out either way!

i think youre right, i think it is just a really early, strange AF this month. I am going to try this new bc this month that is stronger, and hopefully it will fix this irregular bleeding. B/c this wondering and worrying is so stressful.
