possible implantation bleeding?
An_250277 posted:
My husband and I are trying to conceive our first baby.
We started about 3 weeks ago and are just doing the deed every 2 or 3 days.

The problem is my period is really irregular (as in anywhere from 30 days up to 90 day cycles). My last period was in January.

This past week I had an acne flare up and then was really tired for a few days and then started seeing brown blood when wiping. Now the last 2 days there has been a tiny bit in a pad but not as much as my normal period. It has also been only brown.

Could it possibly be implantation bleeding or could it just be my period albeit really light? I haven't taken any birth control pills and while my periods are usually irregular, they are always the same once I get them and normally last 7 days.

thanks heaps

Yes, it is certainly possible this is implantation bleeding.

THanks Gail.

I guess I can only wait a few days and do a test and see. The bleeding has suddenly stopped today. Lasted 3 days only.
