Hi everyone, my period is late 4 days and this morning I started my AF well I think I did. It is not normal, its brown and very light. I think there is some clear wetness too b/c I feel really wet. It is not on my underwear only when I wipe. I did a test and it was negative. Has anyone experienced this?

it is possible that it could be implantation bleeding, in which if you took a test, it wouldn't show positive yet. Implantation has to occur before a test will turn positive and it usually takes at least 6 days after implantation for your body to produce enough, if it doesn't turn into a full AF, then I would test again in a week. Good luck.

Thanks Tammy, Actually that night I woke up in a lot of pain. My AF was here ..but it was different was really dark in colour. I had to take the day off work and was in bed the whole day. I felt really weak and drained. The flow was quite heavy- heavier than normal. Anyway now day 2 of AF and not as heavy and the colouring is more red- still a bit dark but now red, not brown. I am so upset. DH and I have been TTC for 12 months now. I thought this month was different. Well nothing new to all of you... everyone on this forum is in the same boat as me. I am so glad I have somewhere to realise some frustrations and just vent.

I am noticing my AF is slowing down... its not to heavy right now. Usually on my second day I am just as heavy as the first - changing my tampon every few hours. I am doing the same today but my tampon has hardly anything on it? I feel very dizzy and still very drained. Although I have had a lot of sleep- pretty much slept all day yesterday and right through the night? I am a bit scared... should I go to the clinic? I have not experienced this feeling before. Feels like I have the same symptoms as Mono? Has anyone experienced this?

It is just after 7:30pm and I just woke up from another nap... wow I am so tired and dizzy. I went to the bathroom and wiped..nothing. This is so strange. Day 1 - brown spotting only when wipped. Day 2- Heavy heavy- brown small clots Day 3- more red but not heavy for a few hrs now nothing. My periods are usually 6-7 days long. I am going to go to the Dr on Monday. Can someone share an experience with me... this is really freaking me out.

Just take it as normal. My periods used to be the same every time, heavy the first 2 days, light for 2 days, and spotting for 2 days. The last couple of months, It was heavy 1 day, then barely anything the next 3 days, then it was done. Your body can change and your cycle doesn't have to be the same each time....I am now 9 weeks preggers and thank-ful that the waiting game is over for us!! Good luck to you this coming month, don't worry, it will happen.
