What Was THAT Granpa Viv

lalla - April 4

Hi, I am on cycle day 20. My cycles are fairly consistent 28-30 days. A few times up to 34, but that has not happened for a few years. In the evening of cycle day 18 I had red bleeding with a small clot. I only bled when I went to the bathroom. There was still some red on cycle day 19 in the morning. The rest of the day was brown, and today had a small amount of brown. However, the brown was mixed in with what looked like eggwhite mucus... Sorry, way tmi... Again, only when I went to the bathroom. I also felt a very slight sensations like pms pain. Could I have ovulated this late in the cycle and this had something to do with that? My periods have been "different" the past year and I have been to two different obgyns, but they can't find anything wrong. I'm 38, but I should not really be hitting menopause yet... Any input on what this could have been? Lalla

Difficult! The spotting, discharge, and cramps could be attributed to implantation on a short cycle, or ovulation on a 34 days cycle. Are you s_xually active? At your age, and with a recent history of changes in your cycle, the odds favor this being just a weirder cycle than usual. Make notes to show your obgyn on the next visit. Take a preg test if you suspect pregnancy when your next period should show. GL!

Thank you Grandpa Viv! It is difficult, especially when two different obgyn's can't seem to find anything wrong. As much as I would like it to be implantation bleeding (yes my husband and I are s_xually active), I think it is another weird period. I am today again having a slight brownish discharge with a tender/tense belly. I am feeling very bloated. So as soon as my period gets here, I will make an appointment with my obgyn.

I have my fingers crossed for you. Pink and brown when wiping is the usual description of implantation spotting, bloating at implantation time ( a week before PMS) is encouraging, and weird cramps (too many situps) is a frequent post. Keep us updated if more signs develop in the coming week. GL!

Well, I am on cycleday 30 today, and no period yet. If I ovulated at the time of the bleeding, I would get my period tomorrow or thursday. I am having chills, which is a typical sign that my period is approaching... :~( I am however, feeling very lightheaded which is unusual for me. I have had lotionlike discharge, insatialble hunger (typical before my period). This afternoon, I had a small amount of brown discharge when I wiped (tmi - mixed with what looked like ewmucus)... when that happens my period usually begins within the hour, but nothing else so far. I am having alot of sensations or pressure in my lower belly region... b___sts coming out of my bra!! :~) well, that's it for now... af will probably show itself tomorrow or thursday...

well, I guess that was a crazy ovulation... never happened to me before... The chills gave it away yesterday, and today af arrived - heavy and normal... oh well.
