Two full periods 10 days apart?

Posted on the General Health forum and no replies, so trying here. I am TTC.

On 30th Janaury - on schedule (I have regular periods of about 28 days) - I started my period. It seemed more "watery" than normal, but there was significant fresh blood and I didn't doubt that it was a period. The only odd things were that it was quite watery (ie a lot of discharge that wasn't pure blood) and that my breasts were unusually full (haven't been like that since breastfeeding DS) both during and after my period. I had no other pregnancy symptoms at all (I have been pregnant twice before - one ended in early MC - and knew each time before BFP, my symptoms were obvious). Still, because of my strange breasts, I took a pregnancy test at CD6 JUST to make sure - it was a very clear BFN.

Then on the morning of CD10 (yesterday) I went for a wee and had quite a lot of blood (definitely vaginal) - just like full flow period. This continued yesterday (significant blood on a pad) and today. The blood is fresh and not watery. Oddly my breasts are distinctly less full and tender now too - much more normal.

Any ideas what has happened? Am I still CD11 now or actually CD2 now?

I had two (smallish) ovarian cysts removed 3 years ago and was told that I have endometriosis. Haven't had any trouble with either, though (apart from occasionally acheing left ovary). I am almost 42, but no sign of irregular periods before.

I have an appointment to see the GP on Tuesday, but am wondering if anyone has any insight as to what this could be.

Chemical pregnancy? I've not had one myself so can't give you any advice on what they're like. Hopefully your GP will sort things out.

Thanks for the reply - not getting any others.

I would have thought I would have had a BFP - no matter how faint - of it had been any form of pregnancy? Will see what the doctor says. Hopefully will get a gynaecologist referral.

GP thinks it may have been a chemical - maybe I tested too late (almost a week after my odd/false period started) and HCG had already dropped. Regardless she thinks it is hormonal.

"Wait and see" - hopefully things return HK normal. If they don't, over the next 5/6 weeks, then go back and she will refer.
