Hello i am 19 and my husband and i have recently tried for a baby
i am supposed to start my period tomorrow but i am having this light to dark brown discharge instead and my right over is tinging a bit but i have no other period like symptoms. i am just curious that this could be implantation bleeding taking affect a little later than usual. does anyone have any answers for me.
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. When pregnancy occurs, cessation of menses occurs. It is true that you have been trying for a baby but this bleeding seems like menstrual period only. Implantation bleeding is light spotting which may occur around 10 days after fertilization/ovulation. For conceiving try having unprotected intercourse around ovulation. The best timing of intercourse in order to conceive is day 10, 12, 14 and 16 (in case of late ovulation) of a 28 day cycle. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
