Trying to conceive

This has been my first month ttc. For the past couple of weeks I’ve just not felt right. I have been overly emotional and very bloated with mild stomach pains, had backache, tender nipples, headaches, food cravings and for the past couple of nights I’ve woken up for a drink and I’ve had a terrible metallic taste in my mouth
My period was due on the 17th April and this morning (19th April) I had a small amount of very light pink/brown watery discharge. I put a pad on as I assumed it was my period starting. Thoughout the morning/afternoon so far the discharge has turned more blood-like but it’s not much at all, no where near as heavy as my regular flow. I’ve had stomach cramps and backache today too
Is there a chance that this could be implantation bleeding, or is it likely to just be a light period? I done a test 2 weeks ago out of curiosity which came back negative
Thank you in advance 😊

Are you recently off any contraception?

Hi StillTrying. Yes I stopped taking contraception on the 18th March

Symptoms coming off contraception can mimic pregnancy symptoms which is why I asked. Unfortunately can also take a while to settle back into a normal cycle after coming off. Did you have a withdrawal bleed at all ? If not this could be your withdrawal bleed (which can be lighter than a normal period) it is so hard to tell. If it was implantation bleeding it would take about 4 days after it stops before it registers as a positive on a test.
Good luck hope you get a definitive answer soon

Hmmm well that’s annoying! The joys of the female body hey. I did have a withdrawal bleed yes which was much like a regular period for me, lasting about 5/6 days and relatively heavy
Maybe I will try testing anyway once this bleed stops, fingers crossed!
Thank you for your help
