hi all

ok so me and my husband are ttc and i am taking agnus castus regular. my last normal period was 1-5 july 2011 was normal. i usually have 33 day cycles so next was due 2 august 2011. its now 14 and as far as i know it hasnt come. ive experienced bloating near constant headaches pms like symptoms but no period really achy hips and i needed to pee more often. last night i had some very light bleeding very slight and very brown and only when i wiped. i did a home test and was -ve. this morning i am bleeding slightly but enough to mark my panties and use a pad its red but it doesnt feel like my period as it seems too light. just tested again after a few hours slight marking on pad more browny red this time but not like my periods so i duno. most i find is when i wipe and then its like its gone (probably until i next need a wee lol). ive been very very VERY tired (like barely awake most days lol) and somewhat moody compared to usual me. is this implantation bleeding or is it in fact my period? any help or comments would be much apriciated thanks

also caffine usually starts off my stomach cramps when i am due usually a week or so before im due but up to the time of this message they havent set me off. this is also wierd for me.

Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

Your symptoms could be suggestive of pregnancy and it seems like implantation bleeding being spotting and very light.Urine tests some take up to 20 days after a missed period to give accurate results.Get a Blood test done which would give accurate result by now.Consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
