Period or something else?

I've posted in conception but no replies and need a bit of reassurance as I'm felling a bit worried:

It's been over 12 months since I had my last Depo Provera injection and no period. I've had a bit of spotting yesterday and today

TMI warning - not a lot of bleeding, but noticeable when wiping (sorry)

I have also had unprotected sex with my husband as we want to start trying for a baby but thought the chances would be low until my cycle showed signs of getting back to normal. I don't have any pregnancy tests in the house and all the local shops are shut. Does it sound like this could be the early sign or finally getting a period, or is an implantation bleed more likely (bearing in mind I haven't had a period since stopping injections). It has been very light and intermittent which has confused me.

I know all I can really do is take a test but I'm baffled by it all and any advice is appreciated!

Not much help I'm afraid. It could be the start of your cycle returning or it could well be implantation. I would say more your period. I was on the depo and it took me 12 months from last injection to get pregnant but had an established cycle back beforehand for quite a few months.

Have you done a test yet?

Thank you for replying. I've done a test and it is negative. I've had a tiny bit of spotting and cramping today so fingers crossed my period may be returning. However I keep getting my hopes up and then nothing.

Yes it does sound imminent. Good look with the trying.
