Trying to conceive

hello, wondered if anyone has had similar thing ... I came off pill in February and had a withdrawal bleed straight away. I then had a 37 day cycle before my first natural period which was as normal as ever. It's been around 33 days since the first day of that period so I was expecting to come in my period (if not pregnant) in next few days if my cycle length was the same. I 'came on' my period on Monday but only had a tiny speck of really light, almost pink blood, followed by nothing for the rest of the day. Yesterday and today I have had a dark brown, like old blood, speck each day, nothing more than the size of a 1 pence piece. So little that although I have been, there's not really any need to where any pads or tampons. I have been looking online and a lot of sites and they say this is often a misunderstanding of a normal period but can actually mean early pregnancy stages. I've done a test today that's negative, but as I don't know for sure when my period should be I don't know how reliable it is. Has anyone experienced this? Any advice would be great :)

Hi, I have come off the pill at Christmas, and I've had two periods (35 day, 35 day and 28 day) my next is due any time now. My periods have been fairly short, only bleeding for 2 days each time, but fresh red blood. We are not actively trying yet. I've never been pregnant so I can't help ref inplant bleeding but to me what you describe sounds to light to be a period so fingers crossed. If you conceived at ovulation then you may only be two weeks so I'd wait a few more days and take another test. Easier said than done I'd imagine as I'd be thinking about it every second of every day! X

I know i get so impatient haha! The test I did today was the middle of the afternoon so not going to be crazy accurate. We caught ovulation day perfectly this month as I used ovulation tests and tracked it with an app. I haven't got any other symptoms but it could be too early I guess. Fingers crossed!

Hey! Well unfortunately old Mother Nature came along eventually! :( but didn't get my hopes up as have only been trying a month or so...i was just baffled by the first few days as I hadn't experienced it before

Anyone had any experience with negative ovulation tests but other symptoms of ovulation? Last month ovulation tests were really clear and worked perfectly in time with other symptoms but this month I've been getting negative results each day of my fertility window. This morning was negative but just got that watery, egg white cervical mucus (tmi sorry). Has anyone else had similar experience? Really annoying because I want to try time everything for the days leading up to ovulation, but without tests working properly I can't. Any help would be appreciated :)
