Implantation bleed or period three days early

So this afternoon I've had very light/pinky loss on wiping with crampy pains, last three cycles my periods have been regular since coming of the pill 6 months ago and I'm due AF on Saturday.

What do you think, could this be implantation bleeding or period coming? I've have slightly tender boobs which has just started today too.

Been TTC for nearly six months so fingers crossed.

Could very well be! I never had an implantation bleed but I'm sure they're supposed to happen a little before your period is due. Sore boobs was a first sign for me, as well as a properly upset tum all of a sudden.

Best of luck flowers

Hard to tell but does sound like IB!

Thanks both for your replies

So I'm still having small amounts of old brown blood when wiping but boobs aren't tender anymore So not sure what's going on, would be unusual for me for my period to start like this?

Going to do a test tomorrow morning

Just remembered, I was quite crampy, had to take days off work it was so sore, at about 5/6 weeks so that could definitely be a sign too!

I just came here to ask about the exact same thing! I'm due on Monday and feel weird, have had some odd sensations that may or may not be period starting, very light spotting and pinkishness there at times throughout the day.

I've also been feeling pretty nauseous but it would not be the first time I've convinced myself that I feel sick because I might be ill/pregnant/someone two desks away was poorly :-)

But I've been temperature tracking and it's been steadily going down since last week so I'm basically just very bemused.

But I've never had this happen before, never had spotting before a period that didn't turn into a period pretty quickly, like within a couple of hours or much less, and this has been since this morning. Fingers crossed for both of us cooperbug!

So frustrating isn't I! Fingers crossed though! Any more news?

Well basically I haven't a clue what is happening with me, woke up yesterday morning to do a test and had Fresh red bleeding on wiping so obviously thought had come on period properly and didn't do test.

Put a tampon in and as was at wedding didn't really think about it anymore apart from when was changing it a couple of times and nothing on it just tiny bit of brown.Again really unusual for me as once AF usually starts its heavy for few days.

Have pad on today and nothing on it, no symptoms at all so doubt I'm pregnant and just weird period?!

This is exactly what is happening to me right now! Like, everything you described is eerily similar. One or twice I thought I'm starting properly, especially when the trace of blood on wiping I see is properly red. But now its either not there or is weird brownish stuff.

I have done some extensive googling which has revealed the the cause is ABSOLUTELY DEFINITELY cancer of the menopause, an STD, a sign of imminent apocalypse or, more likely, it's implantation bleeding.

I am normally really regular and symptoms of menstruation are predictable for me. This is definitely weird. Kind of tempted to get my hopes up. But if I do a test and it's negative I'll be all upset so maybe best to wait till Tuesday and see if period comes. AAAAAAAAAGH.

My tits have also been abnormally sore at a weird time of the cycle and also I haven't cried at e.g. a puppy in an advert ot a sweet couple on the bus. And I don't feel as bloaty as usual. Which is strange.

Updating just in case anyone searches for a similar topic later: my period's just come. Which is pretty upsetting. I've had the same symptoms for three days and now proper period, so I'm wondering if I had a chemical pregnancy as these are such unusual symptoms for me.

Cooperbug, hoping for better news for you.

Sorry to hear this 💐

I did a test this morning and got this what looks like a very faint line but won't let myself believe it as still no symptoms and just feeling like AF is going to come with pinky/brown on wiping now

cooperbug Mon 24-Oct-16 13:22:33

Sorry didn't post pic

TheProblemOfSusan Mon 24-Oct-16 23:26:35

That looks like a line to me!!! I'd definitely give it a day and test again!

I actually did a test despite it being clear that I was having a period because my symptoms were so odd for me - DH and I really think it might have been a failed implantation so we're quite sad but also feel weirdly better that perhaps something has been working (it's been a while of trying). The test was negative. So I'm enjoying a beer.

I'm tentatively really pleased for you - hope you get a nice clear line tomorrow! Fx xxxx

Oh wow, I can definitely see a very faint line! Where are you up to in your cycle cooperbug?!
I'm CD 26 today; it's my birthday tomorrow and it would be a lovely birthday present for me if I had a positive result tomorrow, but not sure it's still a bit too early?!
