A little blood before AF is due?

Hi Guys, I wonder if you can help. AF is due in Friday (although of course I am hoping for a Bfp) but this morning I have noticed a little blood... Thing is, same thing happened last month. I had been hoping then that it was IB but then AF came calling. Has anyone else experienced this, and does it mean I need to rule out a BFP for this month?

Hi Harry. When I decided to come off the pill to ttc I started getting spotting in the run up to af. Mine was usually brown, so old blood. Is yours red or brown? I did some research and found that spotting is nothing to worry about but can be an issue if ttc. Sometimes it indicates low progesterone which can affect implantation. I had day 21 progesterone test done and this didn't show problems. However, I read that taking vit b6 can reduce spotting prior to af and help with implantation. This worked for me! In combination with temp charting I got pg a couple of months later. Dd is now 6 months. Hope this helps xx

Thanks for coming back. The blood is pink and only very light. I'm off to the chemist though to see if I can get some vitamins! Am I too late for an ever hopeful implantation bleed?

It could be implantation bleeding, it's so hard to know. Guess you will know on fri! Fingers crossed for you x

Hmm...seems to be getting heavier. Think I have lucked out this month sad. Been and bought some pregnacare conception though which I have the b vitamin in them and have made a doctors appointment in case they have some advice....

What does temp charting involve?
