Hope this isnt tmi, Im just looking for some answers

My husband and I are ttc, and we have had intercourse 3 days before, and the two days after I ovulated. I had my period on the 1st of may, ovulated on the 14, and on the 20, I began to have cervical mucous with a slight brown tinge to it. It came and went, for the last 10 days. It is a dime sized stain in my panties in the AM, and then nothing for the rest of the day. So now I am offically 2 days late with this staining, and a couple pregger tests later all say negative. With my other children it took me being a whole 6 weeks pregnant before an urine test would be +.

Thoughts? We are really hoping that this may just be a fluke, and our next and last little one be on the way.

It is very possible that this is implantation bleeding. Since this post was four or five days ago, you would now be six or seven days late, correct? Have you gotten your period yet? Good luck; keep us updated!

We never had to try before, and now that we are actively trying it dosn't seem to be happening Sad

Jesshnnh, if you are 2 months late and still the pregnancy test are negative, you are probably not pregnant being that the test are 99% accurate. There could be a long list of things going on. Brown discharge in most cases is just old blood. In my case I was diagnosed with PCOS,and commonly have the symptoms you are having. PCOS causes a hormonal imbalance, that causes the brown discharge, but your hormones can become imbalanced many other ways; stess, diet, age, ect. My breast also become very sore weeks before I have a period. That being said, I also had sore breast weeks before I found out I was pregnant! Either way you will need treatment as hormonal imbalances can lead to a host of problems ranging from obesity to cancer. I have to take a glucophage to control mine. Most health clinics will see you for a minimal fee. To "am I pregnant" I would take a test as soon as possible.

What could it be?
Okay so here is my question for anyone who can help. I am 21 years old, married, and my husband and I are not yet trying to conceive. We don't use any means of protection and instead just use the "pull out" version. My period has never been regular, but lately I have been able to have a period at least once a month just not ever "on time." I can tell when it's coming due to breasts being sore, slight cramps, irritability, etc. This month however when I was using the restroom I noticed bright red blood spots in my normal discharge which freaked me out because I NEVER get that. I have had brown discharge before, but never blood spotting. At first I had a million thoughts running through my head thinking maybe I was pregnant and maybe I had a miscarriage, etc, cramps accompanied this for the remainder of the day, but then it turned into a brown discharge on the days to follow without the cramps. I have had this brown discharge for a week now and it's only light enough to wear a pantyliner. So I think this rules out implantation bleeding. I have also noticed it's kind of clot-like too at times. The other weird thing is that my stomach has just been feeling funny lately. Achy and just off the norm. I don't have any of the symptoms of being pregnant except being tired so I am sure it's not that. I don't usually get the brown discharge before my period is due, but instead it is usually after I have already had my period. So I am confused. There are so many things that it could be so I just want to know if anyone else has had it like me and found out what it was? Thanks for any advice and help.

Possible pregnancy
Alot of women pregnancy test dont come up positive until the 5-7 month I dont know why it happens that way but it does happen often, i know alot about periods, and pregnancy. So just because the pregnancy test comes up neg. does not mean you are not pregnant it just means that the hcg hormone is very low. Get a blood test that only way to be 100% I mean have you never seen the show I didnt know I was pregnant? it happens more that people are willing to admit, so baby dust to all!

I had unprotected sex several times in the past month or so. I have always had regular periods, never once been late. But I didn't get my period this month. I believe, if I am pregnant, that I would have gotten pregnant 12 days ago. I've taken two pregnancy tests on different days, which both came back negative.
Two days ago, I had very light bleeding, and not for long. Today, I have a brown, sort of looks like blood, in my panties. What is it? Just old blood?
Or could I be pregnant?
Other things I've noticed..
I've been feeling sick to my stomach, loss of appetite, very tired and soar, my breasts are a little more sensitive than usual but not too bad, and I feel emotional.
Although, I am a little stressed and these could all be related to that.
Should I take another test or what?

I hope someone can advise... I have irregular cycles 22 minimum to 28 max days. This is day 31 with no period. Instead I have had light brown-light pink discharge for 6 days now. Did pregnancy test but seemed negative. Not absolutely sure though. Maybe under a microscope I could see a very vague line! Called doctor. Said repeat test in 3 days and then if still no period go see him the next day. He also daid could be cyst or pregnancy.

19 days late, negative test and brown discharge
Hi Ya, im wondering how things went in the end with you all?

The last first day of my last period was 29th nov, i was expected to be on 27th dec...its now 19 days.

on the 13th day i started to have brown discharge for a week but on day 17 i had a slight bleed, but only when i wiped) i thought this was probably my period and was expecting it to be on for 4 days, but after a few hours it stopped, now i have brown discharge again. i dont think this is implantation becuase its been 3 weeks since i ovulated.

I went to see docs and she said for me to wait another week to try a test. ive done 5 tests the last few weeks. so im trying my hardest not to do anymore.

the first week i was experiencing a dull ache, tired, sore breast and bloated. the day i had a lil bleed the cramps were worse. since the bleed stopped i havnt had cramps and im not sure if my head was tricking me into thinking i was pregnant but i dont feel anything anymore.

Im interetsed to see what happend with your situation?
Im still confused because im normally like clockwork and now im wondering if i had a MC.but i think i would of bleed for days and been crippled with pain. but i havnt been. xx

My mother when she was pregnant to me she didn't have a clue she was pregnant because she menstruated for the first 3 or 4 months! When her period finally stopped she went to the doc suspecting she wasd the pregnant and the doctor asked her if she went to see if pregnant or to give birth?!?! But in my case more likely I have a cyst or something that causes abnormal periods even though first time I was so late...

Pregnant or not? Mature responses please - need your help!
Hi Ladies! Can someone please help me with this..... I really need an answer.

My husband and I are TTC with our first. It's been 9 months of trying with no luck. Last month we had sex everyday for 4 days before ovulation, the day of ovulation and after.

My cycles have been on time and regular, 28 day cycle, never late. I was suppose to get my period Feb. 28th - I didn't. I've had brown spotting / discharge when I wipe, very little for the past 3 days. It went away and then this morning I had a little light red / pinkish spotting and has since stopped. My period's have never been light - always heavy and I always know how I feel when I get them. This feels different - I feel crampy and bloated; no sore breasts; occasional sharp lower back pain.

I tested on day 1 of my missed period - hpt was negative.

Any suggestions? It has now been 5 days? Should I wait longer before I take another? Could I be pregnant?

Hi Mama0101,
My husband and I are trying to conceive our second, and I am now 3 days late. Two negative pregnancy tests, and now brown-tinged discharge when I wipe. I think I'm just going to give it some more time. Maybe 5 more days to see if my period comes. Did you end up being pregnant?
