Hi all,

Wondering if you can help me. I had my last period on 9th of September 2020, I had unprotected sex on the 22nd of September 2020. On the 3rd of October 2020 up until now (7th October 2020) I have had some light spotting when wiping ranging from pink mucus to light brown/pink spots. My period is due today however there is no sign of AF. I have had BFNs when testing. I thought this could of been implantation however I heard implantation spotting does not last longer than 3 days. Has anyone else had a situation like this?

Hey @ch90 I understand how you feel as I had the exact same situation last month! I 'bled' around the time my period was due but it was incredibly light pink/brown discharge with the tiniest bits of bleeding. I thought omg yay I'm pregnant! 4 BFNs later over the next 3 weeks I found out I wasn't and got my period again very light! I had the mirena coil removed a few months back so not sure if it is that but just wanted to let you know you're not alone.

Hey @Kirky658 thank you for replying! So sorry that you have experienced this as well, it’s so confusing/frustrating isn’t it? I wasn’t on any form of contraception prior so I doubt it’s that but I do have an under active thyroid so could be due to that but then again I’ve never experienced this before!

Hey @ch90 I know it broke my heart at the time but I'm okay with it now. New cycle and new month now let's see what happens 😊 interestingly I have been told by my gynaecologist today (post surgery follow up for endometriosis) that stress can cause spotting and light periods! He's advised me to wait a while and see if it settles. I would give it a week and test again, then you would know for sure. Good luck xx

Hey @ch90 our bodies definitely know how to mess with our heads 😖. The month before I got my BFP I had some spotting A few days before AF which then turned Into AF but the month after (where I got my BFP) I had spotting from about a week before my AF was due for 4 days and then got my BFP on the day of my missed period. (I also tested 8dpo 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ and 11 dpo and got BFN).
Fingers crossed it’s the latter for you!

Thank you all,

It’s nice to know I’m not alone experiencing this. I’ve got some stomach and back pains now. I wish my period would just turn up or that I would get a BFP lol. I just hate not knowing! I know you probably all do. I’ve got my fingers crossed for us all!!
