Could be an implantation bleed, I had this with my second pregnancy

Hi @Kirstylee95, I have had the exact same thing this month! Period due on Friday but I have had brown spotting (as in 1 spot per day!) on Saturday and again yesterday and today. I am really hoping it is implantation but I don't know! Fingers crossed for you x

@Secretlifeofme it's sounds so horrible I actually googled brown spot it's so odd just odd spot here and there if it's af I want it to turn into af if it's ib I want a positive I hate waiting ahhh !! Does anyone no how long ib last ? X

That's the thing, I have found conflicting information about ib. Some websites suggest that it's only 1 or 2 days but some suggest it can go on for several days and that it could still be ib as long as it's not increasing (in which case it's turning into AF). At the moment I don't know what's going on but I'm really hoping it isn't AF!

@Secretlifeofme I'm the same mine isn't everytine I wipe either it was just odd spot but i do however have some odd cramping let's keep updating and hopefully we both get some good news xx

Secretlifeofme Tue 06-Feb-18 15:03:36

I have cramping too! But really light, nothing like AF. Yes, keep me posted xflowers

I have a similar issue/query!

Well I had pink/brown spotting Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd. Just once per day. Saturday nothing at all. Sunday a red streak but once at 11.00am. Monday and Tuesday once or twice brown spotting, maybe a pink tinge/barely any red. So confused, as thurs and fri I thought maybe it was implantation bleed potential. Then initially I thought AF was arriving Sunday, now I've no idea what to think! confused I don't know if I'm still counting Cycle days or if I should be starting new and if it was a "tiny period". Can anyone help??

Hi @melissafrancis, it's confusing isn't it? Lots of websites suggest that ib should only last a very short time, but I have had this spotting on and off since Saturday now, and no sign of it developing into AF! Then if you Google, you get a lot of women saying that their IB lasted several days. I don't know what to think but I'm wishing you luck anyway flowers

@Secretlifeofme - Yes exactly! Thank you, you too flowers however I am going to officially call this now cycle two, as I did a test this morning and it was a definite BFN. I'll call Sunday's "red streak" and the following two days as a light light period, so now technically on cycle day 5. It's the best I've got to go on for now, I guess it just being the first month off of the mini pill, my hormones are still settling.
