I have a normal 29 day cycle. My cycle was due to start yesterday (8/2), but all I ever had was just a tiny bit of brown discharge when I wiped, and still today nothing. Now we are TTC, and since coming off BC I have had a regular 29 day cycle. I did use an OPK, but it did not pick up the LH surge until like day 18, unfortunaly DH was out of town for a frewday before, and until a couple of days after that, so I thought for sure I was not pregnant this month. Any thoughts on why I am late, or has anyone ever gotten false readings from the OPK's. This was the first time I ever used any OPK, and I used one of the digital ones. Thanks for any input.

Dear Anon_50369,

You can read this article about Period Blood Color , and learn what brown blood can mean. If your period doesn't start, you can take a Home Pregnancy Test , or see your doctor for more help. Remember, that it is possible for semen to live several days.

Best wishes and Baby Dust,
