My husband and I are trying to conceive. We charted my ovualation and had sex on the days I was fertile. On day 21 of my cycle, I started having brown spotting and thought maybe it was implantation bleeding. That night though it was heavier and I had to use a tampon. I thought it was my period because I used a tampon all day Monday and by Tuesday afternoon it had stopped. It started again Wednesday afternoon. What is going on? I am normally pretty regular (27-29 days) and my period normally lasts approx 5 days and is very heavy in beginning. It was not very heavy on Monday but did soak a tampon.
Brown spotting before a due period is sometimes normal and usually after a few days the normal periods start.It might also be an indication of implantation bleeding which occurs when a woman conceives.If the periods do not start then get a Blood HCG test done to rule out pregnancy.
Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
