Hi can anyone give me any info about implantation bleeding? I had a MMC in oct 2008, my next AF was 14th november then 17th december.We were BD 25-27th dec which was my "fertile time" then 2 days ago which was 7-9 days post BD i have had intermittent streaking of pink and brown disharge.Not enough to mark a pad but only upon wiping!!! Sorry TMI!!! According to the "ovulation" websites i should have finished ovulating 2nd jan soo can t test until 10 days from the 2 nd of jan!!!! All the tests soo far negative but are due AF 12th jan soo have a test i can do 5 days before my AF!!!!

Please help loss doesn t look like "normal" loss!!!! Sorry TMI!!!

Any ideas?

Well, I guess the timing sounds about right for implantation bleeding assuming that you ovulated around christmas.

I'm a bit confused though - you then say your fertile time ends on 2 Jan. How can that be if you ovulated around christmas?

Your timings are similar to mine. Last AF was 15th Dec; ovulated on 26th Dec; next AF due 9th Jan. I haven't had any implantation bleeding, but I feel very pg. With 2 of my previous 4 pregnancies I have had implantation bleeding, but I got it at about 13-14 days post ovulation, so it would probably be too early for me.

It does sound like implantation bleeding to me though, which can come when the egg implants at about 7-10 days post ovulation.

Very similar to my dates too. NoNickname - you say you feel pregnant? What kind of symptoms do you have at the moment if you don't mind me asking?

louisesh Mon 05-Jan-09 21:40:09

Thanks for your messages.On an "ovulation " calender it showed my ovulation lasting from approx 27/28th dec to the 2/3rd of jan.

how long would it take for the hcg to be sufficient enough to show as a BFP?.

Hi NONICKNAME your timings are virtually the same aren t they? I also feel PG can t explain why no major symptons apart from an occasional metallic taste in my mouth!!! [Don t know if i m imaging it tho!!] hmm

MrsHappy Mon 05-Jan-09 21:43:05

Oh, I see, so it gave you an estimated period during which you would ovulate. (I don't use those things - they can't cope with my ridiculous cycles!)

I would wait 3 days after spotting before testing, or until 12dpo whichever was the later. That way you are likely to get an accurate result.

Lots of luck - I hope you get your BFP.

louisesh Mon 05-Jan-09 22:07:26

Thanks MRSHAPPY if i follow your advice and wait 3 days that ll take me to thurs 8 th which is also 5 days before AF and i ve got a test which you can try at that stage.

12 dpo would be ? about 14 th jan which is toooo long to wait!!! But would tie in with post AF date!!! Thanks for your advice i ll let you know if theres any news!!!wink

If you ovulated on 27 December 12 dpo would be 8 January.

If, on the other hand, you are taking 2 Jan to be your ovulation date, then the bleed you have already had is I think too early for implantation bleeding as implantation happens from about 5 dpo onwards. If you ovulated somewhere in between it is possible that the bleeding is implantation bleeding, although I guess that ideally you would still have been having regular sex after 27 December if you ovulated later in that month.

The FR tests are (by their own statistics) not terribly reliable if you use them 5 days early. If I were you I would wait until two days before your period is due (10 Jan). That can be taken as equivalent to 12 dpo and you can be fairly confident of the result (although a minority of women do not get a positive until after they have missed their period).

HTH, lots of luck.

HI MRSHAPPY feeling less like implantation bleeding now as enough now to mark a pantyliner and seems more like fresh loss but still not like normal AF!!! Oh well just have to wait and see if BFN try again off on hols in Feb and as it stands today not talking to DH as had a big row this a.m soo not the ideal time to have a BFP!!!

Thanks for your help i ll keep you posted!!!

NoNickname Tue 06-Jan-09 13:03:46

onlyanauntie - my symptoms are: general achiness in the womb area, with occasional sharp pains in either side (ovary area); my boobs are bigger and more tender than is usual at this TOTM; I had very itchy nipples about a week ago (strong pg symtom for me). I'm pretty certain I have conceived. Whether or not it successfully implants is another matter smile

louisesh - might still be a good sign - my implantation bleeding has always been enough for me to start using my Mooncup. Then it just mysteriously disappears after about 2 days.

louisesh Tue 06-Jan-09 14:39:46

OH mmmm.... Food for thoughtNONICKNAME again loss seems to ahave come to a complete stop!!! ARH!!!!hmm

bandanna Tue 06-Jan-09 16:37:19

Hi, my last AF was 6th Dec and I have a 31-32 day cycle. Have had slightly blood stained mucous on day 30 and 31 (normal for me, pre AF), then as I was going to bed last night (day 31) I had a bigger fresh blood loss. I thought AF had arrived but woke up to slight old blood only and nothing since. A pregnancy test I did on day 28 was negative. Would this be too late in my cycle to be an implantation bleed?

NoNickname Tue 06-Jan-09 17:52:01

Not at all too late I don't think bandanna. With my ds I got implantation bleeding on what should have been the last two days of my cycle.

LJ29 Tue 06-Jan-09 18:32:00

bandana, I have exactly the same details as you!!! I got my BFP on Sunday CD 30 and started to spot 2 hours later. It seems to have stopped now (on and off for no more than 24 hours) and was only very very light but may have been caused by implantation so it may be worth doing another test.

bandanna Tue 06-Jan-09 18:39:00

Thanks very much, not given up hope yet then! I'll test again tomorrow if AF doesn't arrive. I always thought an implantation bleed was around 5-10 after conception. Happy to stand corrected.
Congratulations LJ29!

louisesh Wed 07-Jan-09 10:09:30

Hi BANDANNA have you tested yet??? Good luck

bandanna Thu 08-Jan-09 11:01:29

Didn't need to. AF arrived on wed am. My body is very cruel to me! Thanks for asking. Have you tested?

louisesh Thu 08-Jan-09 12:53:22

OH yes all the time!!!! Still BFN however think still too early!!!! Soo sorry to hear you news.Still feel pg as suffering a lot from a horrible metallic taste in my mouth and felt really naseaus last night. Soo fingers crossed !!!! wink

bandanna Thu 08-Jan-09 15:15:36

Well that all sounds very promising. Good luck and let us know.

louisesh Thu 08-Jan-09 17:55:19

Will do!!! wink

NoNickname Thu 08-Jan-09 18:59:10

Will also stick around and watch with interest, louisesh. The metallic taste sounds like a good sign. Sorry AF got you bandanna. I have some brown/pinkish spotting today, which would be about the right time (for me anyway) for implantation bleeding) but seeing as that's how my period also usually starts then I won't be getting too excited just yet. Think I'll sit tight and see if anything happens tomorrow, and if not, do a test on Saturday.

louisesh Thu 08-Jan-09 19:45:22

Fingers crossed for you too NONICKNAME still having the same horrible taste and soooo tired at work this p m could have just nodded off!!!

Had a blood test taken for HCG levels today [able to get it done at work!!] awaiting results tomorrow!!! Wouldn t be surprised if its negative but will still feel sure am PG!!! [if you understand where i m coming from]

mrsdisorganised Thu 08-Jan-09 20:08:11

Good luck Louisesh....recognised your name from another ttc threadgrin

louisesh Fri 09-Jan-09 09:43:35

Hi MRSDISORGANISED as predicted hgc levels < 2 so not showing as pg which was what i was expecting!!

Hope you re well? Soo sick of this waiting!!!!

NoNickname Fri 09-Jan-09 12:14:31

Oh sorry, louisesh. I have some bright red spotting today, so things don't look too good for me either.
