Hi everyone,
I could definately usually some thoughts/comments about my situation. Here a few details:
Not sure exactly how many days my cycle is, probably 28-30 days. I was expecting my period around 10/12 (last menstrual cycle was 10/14-10/19), but nothing happened until 10/16 when I saw a bit of brown when I wiped. Since then (today is 10/19) I've experienced 3 days of this continued brown spotting when I wipe and few small spots on my panty liner. Nothing like my typical period. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. I also have what I think could be early pregnancy symptoms: naseua (but at night), bloating, fatigue. I'm just curious if anyone has had a similar experience and what the results were (pregnant or not). Right now I'm just waiting things out. Many thanks!

Hi there
I actually have had all those symptoms as well. I had last period on Sept 20th and expected my next one Oct 17/18, but still nothing. On Oct 8th I started to get pink spotting, then went away until Oct 14th to Oct 17/18 I had brown spotting. I did a test on Sat and it was Neg, but still no period. I get naseaus on and off all day, no throwing up though, bloated, fatigue and headaches....oh and I swear my cervix hurts, if thats possible! I have read so many things that say it can be normal in pregnancy as long as it's pink or brown and not bright red. All the symptoms can be a sign of your period too. Makes me CRAZY! Smile I think I will buy another test, you should do the same. I would wait 2-7 days until you do another test though.

Two months ago, I was convinced I was preg, but my period ended up being 2 1/2 weeks late, so I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but keeping my fingers crossed, and for you too!

i had similar symptoms with brown and pink spotting for 2 days after period was due. now on the 3rd day it seems i have begun my period....this seems odd to me as i have NEVER had pink or brown spotting before my period.

I am 15 days late, and took a preg test. It says neg. I have a OBGYN appointment for the 25th. I think that's the best thing to do now. I never had light pink, and sometimes light brownish blood when I wipe. It's freaking me out. This spotting is scaring me a little, so going to the doctor would be the best thing for this. I wish everyone the best going through this. For a min I thought I was the only one going through this. Good luck to all!

I am having the same issue. I was due to start my period on Saturday, 14th, but nothing-just some brown spotting. I took a preg test and it came back negative. I take birth control and I am very regular and my periods are always the same. This is weird and freaking me out a little. I have been nausiated on and off for several weeks. I also have PCOS and have had it for many years, nothing like this has ever happened.

Especially eHealthy
How long have you been on birth control? Birth control has this great way of making your periods much lighter and less days in length.

This sounds like what you are dealing with. A pregnancy test was negative and you have two other issues related to preventing pregnancy, PCOS AND taking birth control.

You are likely not pregnant.

Confused
Well I am 12 days late on my period and yesterday when I went to the restroom I had pinkish/brown blood. But a very tiny amount.I still have it today also. I have been having pain like cramping for the past week. I took a home pregnancy test and it was neg. I have never been late on my period except from when I had my daughter. With her I knew I was pregnant. I could just tell but it never appeared on a pregnancy test till I was 6 weeks along and of course had already been to the doctor. So I made me a doctors appt. for the 28th. I guess we shall see then. Any thoughts?

? pregnant - light brown spotting
I was diagnosised with PCOS since i was 14. Everytime i actually got a period it was Extreamly heavy and uncontrolable and i had so much pain with it.I havent had a period in 2 years, Right now i believe i have spotting it start as a pink bloody colour very light for a few hrs then is currently a light browny colour. Do you think it could be implantation? Ive never had spotting in my life,and therefore nothing like this. The hard thing is i was neuseas for the last 7 days however have had gastro for the first 1-2 days of that 7 so im really confused. Any suggestions!!!
