A Little Concerned

I don't know whats going on with my period. It was supposed to start February 1st or 2nd, but I have an rather odd bleeding that started tonight a few hours ago. It was exactly like discharge, but you could tell there was very little blood in it since it was shaded pink. I am s_xually active, I do not take birth control and am not on any medication. I am not sure if its spotting, implantation bleeding, or a regular period yet. Sometimes but rarely they'll start off like this but my br___ts still hurt and they have for about a week now. My headache that I have had for days (though dull, still noticable) has not subsided, my lower back has been achy (may be because of my bed/sleeping) and I have fatigue, but its not that severe. I have been feeling confused or "in a daze" for a while now and intuition is telling me to get a pregnancy test but my heart is telling me to wait until tomorrow to see if this gets any heavier. I had a routine pregnancy test done on the 25th when I went to my gynecologist but it came out negative (I am not so sure if I were pregnant, it would have shown up then anyways). I keep track of my periods very carefully to make sure that they're regular, and its always 28-29 day cycle. I checked my ovulation calendar for the month to see if I may have had s_x on my fertile days (which I did on the 16th, but I had s_x times before and after that date). I don't know whether or not to think I could be pregnant, or to just see what happens. I've had scares like this before but something is really worrying me this time. Could someone tell me if I should get this checked?

Follow your intuition, sweetheart. One of the strongest symptoms some women experience is that little voice that says "take a pregnancy test". Buy one with two tests in it. Take one today. If its negative, wait a couple of days and test again. Good luck.

If your period isn't due until Feb. 1 or 2, you may have to wait to see if she's a no-show and then test. A test on the 25th very well could have been too early. Pick up some tests and take one with first morning pee.

Sounds promising! Good exposure, encouraging signs, suggestion of implantation spotting - take a test Feb 3 first morning pee and another a week later if need be. Pick up some prenatal vitamins while you are at the Dollar Store. Good luck!

Well, I waited until today. I went to bed at about 4:30 this morning (with still not sign of significant bleeding) and woke up at 6:30 this morning with excrutiating pain in my ovaries. I'm starting to think that this may be just a terribly period but there is still minimal bleeding. Implantation Bleeding I believe is only supposed to last a few hours. Thank you though everyone for listening to me. I guess I am just going to have to wait until my ultra-sound for my ovaries on the 7th, and maybe ask about this whole thing while I am there. It's just so frustrating not knowing whats going on with you, and that it could be several different kinds of problems.
