I began spotting a week ago and found it very strange because I had just finished my period about a week and a half earlier. I think I might be pregnant and to be honest I really do not want to be. We used contraception which did not break and there were no other problems as far as I know. I am aware that I should see a doctor to find out for sure but I am simply confused because I did not think that implantation bleeding occured so soon after your period ended. I also have not been very hungry though i'm not sure if it's just because of the stress. I've lost probably a little over five pounds so now I weigh about 90 lbs. I'm petite and thin so it's not very noticable.

i too am going through the same thing. I had my period a lil over a week ago. The last day of it was exactly one week ago. Two days ago I started spotting, it wasn't brown or abnormal in color at all, it was the color it would be during a period, though i had already had one. And the spotting is light, and its off and on. The 1st day it lasted on an hr or two, perhaps 3hrs at the longest. The 2nd day it was half the day. And today, being the 3rd day of spotting, its been light spotting all day long. I took a pregnancy test, and it was negative. Along with the spotting, the inside of my vagina has been hurting, sorta a throbing feeling. If you have learned anything or might know, let me know.
Also, about 5mths ago i got diagnosed and treated for P.I.D. after the meds were all taken that were giving for it, i felt better. But since then, every period i've had has been totally abnormal. Not sure if its associated, but figured worth mentioning. This may help. Try going the the ER during the day, thats what i did when i found out about P.I.D. a few wks prior to the ER visit, i saw my doctor, they ran lots of tests, and said everything was fine. So its possible your doctors could have missed something.

I was on my period (induced by provera) on december 22nd and it lasted for 12 days! During that time i took soy (we are trying to have a baby and wanted to give it a shot) i don't have any periods when i don't take provera so i dont know what ovulation feels like or anything else. Well, i have an app on my cell phone saying today (friday august 5h) should be when i ovulate. We had sex twice during my period, and twice after, do you think this is ovulation spotting or could it be implantation bleeding or something else? it's only when i go pee and wipe, not much on it but its pinkish to red (so fresh blood) thanks.

Check to make sure you got your tampon out. Believe it or not, this happens to alot of women. Especially if there is a strange smell.

Hi, I started my period on November 15th -November 19th. I started spotting very light pinkish fluid November 22nd and it lasted for a whole week off and on. I took 2pregnancy test November 26th and both came out positive. I waited to take the third on Sunday morning and it also came out positive with the second line faded (also on the first two tests as well). A couple hours later I took the clear blue digital tests, and the first one said "pregnant"..I waited an hour and half to take the other 2, and they said "not pregnant." I went to the doctor yesterday to take a urine test, and it came back negative. I'm so confused and don't know what to think. Im not spotting anymore...I need advice.

omg!!!
The same thing is happening to me. My period was September 15-20 and I started having some small amounts of pink/brown/red spotting and lines when I wipe around the 22nd. I haven't took any tests yet because I didnt think you could be pregnant when you get a period. I just have one question. During this time (after your period) did you have any stomach pains or cramps ? I did.

Hello! This same thing is happening to me right now -- had a "period" Nov 1-3 (although it was lighter than normal, but with stomach pains/cramps like you) and now (Nov 5) I am spotting again! Did you ever find out what caused your spotting?

Hi, my situation is a little different i started taking birth control on the 17th of november which was the day i started my period. My period lasted all the way till the 26 that has never happened before so i was worried about that. The day i got off my period i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. I went to the doctor to see if i was pregnant but that said as long as i started taking the pill the fost day i started bleeding there's no way i can be pregnant. The same day i came home i went to the rest room and there was spotting of reddish looking color but i had just got off my period on the 26 so im wondering why im spotting? And i don't want to end up pregnant. Any feedback? :/

I was on the pill for almost 10yrs, and I got off of it about a year and a half ago. I noticed that my body was changing, and I think it was because my hormones were starting to get used to my body again without the pill. As far as "spotting" goes, my spotting was of very faint pink and watery. It wasn't red. Your "spotting" could still be from the birth control getting used to your body since you've barely started taking it. I don't think that you ate pregnant, I think it's still from your period.

Hi, my situation is different. I got my tubes clipped in 2008. Me and my bf have had unprotected sex. My stomach feels weird like I'm bloated (which I just had my period last week and the bloating usually goes away). My breasts have gotten bigger, my appetite has grown. The preg test I took at home was negative but it could b too early to tell. This would've a blessing if I am pregnant I just have to wait till feb 9 to go to the doc

Pregnant with an IUD?
I've had a non-hormonal 10 year IUD for about 7 years now. My husband and I never use contraception and he regularly ejaculates in me (sorry for the vivid details) but we've never had any problems with pregnancy. Lately I've been having SEVERE cramping. I thought it was just a combination of my period and constipation, but my period ended a week ago and the constipation has been corrected and I'm still having horrible cramps. I'm nauseous all the time anyway although now that I think about it I did throw up a few mornings ago. And today I started spotting for the first time ever. Like a dark rusty red. I'm so scared I'm pregnant. Only because I want a baby so badly right now and I'm afraid that if I get pregnant on a copper IUD I won't be able to keep it. Does it sound like I'm pregnant and if so will I be able to keep the baby?
