Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Posted this on bt too but I don't know if anyone here can help too. Some of you might remember I had that weird cycle this month & did the prgenancy test & got the weird curved line test then another neg test. Well I'm now on cd11 & I've got some bright red blood (slightly more than spotting) with a few clots. I'm slightly scared by this, any advice. Starting to make myself feel ill with worry. We also dtd last night for the 1st time since I last ov so don't know if that could've caused anything

Hi BK :-)
So you had the weird line, then a negative, then AF arrived as usual? I think I remember rightly, correct me if otherwise! I can't offer any answers, sorry, but didn't want to read and run. If it were me I'd see if it's a one off or if it stops, and I'd also probably do both a hpt and an opk. Not because either are helpful, but at 6pm at night with the GP closed, it would be my warped way of "doing something". Whatever you do please don't Google your symptoms!! And if you are concerned pop to the GP or walk in centre in the morning. Virtual hugs xx

I have a few days of spotting then 1 day of a medium bleed then back to spotting. I thought that the 1 day bleed must've been my af but then had doubts so did the test to quieten that little voice in the back of my mind. After the weird test (which I didn't see till after the time limit) then did another which was negative. So assumed that 1 day with spotting either side must've been my af (right timing around cd29/30). Unless this is my af but without spotting but that would mean either a 37 day cycle or a 10 day cycle (ish). Way too confused

Hmm that is strange. At any other time I'd probably just write it off as one of those things, but if FTC I'd pop to see the GP and explain it all. A bit of bleeding isn't necessarily relevant, but if it followed another abnormal pattern, I think I'd want to get advice from a doc, just in case it needs looking into. I'd be as confused as you are! Keep us updated x

Thanks bf. Just did my last hpt (well I had to really) & I'm actually relieved that it's neg so not a mc, just weird bleeding. Feel slightly better as I thought taking epo & similar may have done some possible harm if something was there. Got to go now but will update tomorrow. Thanks x

Cd 1 is usually classed as first day of full flow red bleeding. Have u just had spotting up till now?

Hi CP. I had 4 days of spotting (completely normal for me) then I had 2 days of light flow (I needed to use my mooncup so I counted it as cd1) then I had 1 day of medium flow with cramps then 2 more days of very light flow again then nothing. That was nearly a week ago. Don't do temps so don't know. It's only there when I wipe now & as the pregnancy test was negative I'm less worried & more confused.

What CDs was the spotting/bleeding on? Just wondering if what you thought was AF could've been OV bleeding? I know it's not that common but for the last two cycles I've been having slight bleeding (cd18 last month and so far cd12 and 13 this month) accompanied with AF type aches. Up until last month my cycles were settling down quite nicely. It's do hard not to worry though isn't it? I'm just going to wait and see what happens, I might start using OPKs.

Hi WG, interesting to hear about the bleeding around ov on cd12 & 13. This has never happened to me. I always spot for 2/3/4 days just before my af starts so this cycle I spotted on cd28 & 29, then had a light flow (that I classed as cd1 & 2) then 1 medium day on cd3 then a few days of spotting. & then yesterdays was on cd11. This never happens to me. I've had a few cramps & backache but never sure how much of that is in my head or a result of the dancing I did yesterday. I've got a doctors appointment this morning to hopefully see if they can shed any light on it. It's now only spotting (& was last night before I went to bed) so I'm probably over reacting but it really scared me yesterday. My opk's haven't arrived yet so can't check that but I tend to ov on cd15-17 so cd11 seems very early if it's that. Will have to confess to the dr all the supplements I'm taking though so am expecting possibly a bit of a telling off.

BK, I've just replied over on the TTC thread but I'm glad the Dr didn't think there is anything to be concerned about. Doesn't mean it's any less frustrating and annoying though! I'm quickly learning that trying to figure this all out just causes more anxiousness. I'm now CD14 and the spotting appears to have pretty much gone. I did an OPK this morning but that said I'm not fertile so I guess the spotting can't be down to ovulation, can it? I'm more confused than I was before. I was hoping that would explain it. I came off the pill in May because that was causing spotting all over the place and as soon as I stopped taking it, so did the spotting, until last month that is!
