My LMP was MArch 11 and lasted for the normal 4-5 days. Today (March 25) I got up to pee and pinkink-brown blood came out on the tissue and in the toilet. No clots or anything, but some stringy mucus that was dark brown. I dont think it is IB, because my last 2 cycles were 39 days and this is only day 15. Has this happened to anyone? What is this? (We are TTC, but just stopped BC at the end of December.)

After coming off BC your cycles can vary in length for a bit. When I did it took a few months for them to settle down to a usual length. So your cycle this month may not be as long and you could be pregnant. I f you're not pregnant then I'm afraid I'm not sure but chances are it's nothing to be concerned about (maybe could even be "old" blood from your last period that didn't all come out at the time?) I hope it is a shorter cycle and that you are pregnant! *** baby dust to you ***

Well, on day 15 there is a possibility of pink as a result of the follicle rupturing to release the egg. I wonder if this is the first time you have ovulated since coming off the pill.

I have been using OPK and have had a LH usrge on day 27 or 28 eaach month since coming off the pill. I think I have been ovulating... I am still bleeding - nothing heavy, but wearing a pad and it is NOT bright red, by any means. I am still using the OPK's and as of yesterday afternoon I had not had a surge yet.... what shoudl I do? Should I do a pregnancy test with my OPk test this afternoon? I just dont think I could possibly be pregnant after just having my period on March 11!!!

I am still bleeding, but nothing heavy. Does nayone else know what this might be? CURIOUS: Why would you think I might be pregnant? I wish I was, just wondering why you thought I might be?

Ash, I've had these issues happen to me before when I'm ovulation. Maybe your ovulating.

Erica - We are TTC so is it too late (if this is ovulation bleeding) for us to BD?

 

Ash - March 25

Even weirder - I just took a HPT and a OPK at the same time.... faint line, but viable on HPT and also a surge line on the OPK, but not as dark as it should be to indicate a positive. ANYONE????? Does this bleeding mean a miscarriage?

It could just be withdrawal symptoms and your body still adjusting after bc or you could be pg. My cycles were 36 and 43 after bc and got pg in my 3rd cycle. I know some women who went on for 3-6 months without their period after stopping the pill and not pg. When my cycle was 43 days, I went to see my doc, she said it's possible that I was pg but my pg tests and hers showed -ive. She said if my period hasn't come in 2 weeks, come see her again, but my period showed up 1 week later! Have you taken a pg test? I'm not trying to scare you or anything, a friend of mine stopped bc in jan and had been bleeding every 7-10 days, she didn't think to take a pg test coz she didn't think she was coz of the bleeding, but she had pg symptoms so we managed to persuade her to test and it was positive. She went to the docs, explained she's been bleeding etc, and when the doc did a scan turned out she was 6+ weeks already, but they suspected she's having an ectopic coz of the bleeding although she wasn't experiencing any pain. She was taken in for emergency surgery few days later, and had to remove one of her fallopian tubes coz it cannot be saved. It's sad, but the point I'm trying to make is, if you suspect something is wrong and you are worried, go see your doc, if everything is fine then that's okay, if not, better detect early than sorry later.

in my personal opinion it's never too late to BD - you never know unless you are REALLY closely monitoring your ovulation - when you will ovulate. it could be early IB, but most likely just random BC hormonal changes. good luck!

Ash, Relax and have s_x every other day. You are ovulating. It's not to late. When you bleed that means that your egg has been released. Maybe you conceived already and u just don't know it.

Im 29yrs old with 4 beutiful kids, 16, 14, 10 and 5 and we are trying for our last bundle of joy. My lmp was March 2. I'm just waitting to see what happen. I really hope I'm pregnant. I just stopped bc at the end of January.

Thanks to eveyone who responded! I just posted that I had a faint, but visable + HPT and a + OPK, taken just a little while ago. So , am I pregnant and miscarrying?
