Trying to conceive
23/12/2016 at 06:35
I've been off birth control for 1 year and 3 months now....My cycles can be be anywhere from 31 days-40 days. My husband and I had sex using the pull out method in early November and early December. My period was due Wed December 21st.
But on the17th, I had some abnormal bleeding. It started out really dark brown and sticky. Then became light pink/ light red the rest of that day. The flow was really light. The consistency was really different too. Bright red blood with clear slime fluid..& couple pinky red blobs....sorry TMI.....I cramped extremely bad that entire day of the 17th. I usually don't cramp during my period, but today was REALLY bad. It only lasted around 24 hrs. Light flow continued till Wednesday (around 4 days) & remained either light pink/ red or dark brown.
I took 2 pregnancy tests Thursday morning (day after I was suppose to get my period) and both were negative. Other symptoms I've been having: bloating/ pressed out stomach feel (especially lower abdomen), small bumps around areolas, really tired, not sleeping good, a vivid dream or two, nauseous around a week ago but stopped, tender breasts 1 week ago... Am I pregnant? Did I test too early? Or is this just a messed up time of the month for me. Thanks for your advice.
