    trying to conceive, light/spotty period

    Hello,
    I am 29 years old and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for 8 months. My last two menstrual cycles have consisted of very light spotting, primarily pinkish/brown only when wiping. Never requiring a pad or tampon. I tend to have light periods, but this light is atypical. Last month I used ovulation test strips and had a positive test on 9/9/12, with light spotting starting on 9/19/12. Each month I have taken pregnancy tests thinking (and hoping) that the light spotting may be a sign of implantation bleeding, but they have all been negative. I am starting to get concerned that there is something more going on. I have contacted my local Ob/gyn who recommended I make an appointment, but unfortunately no openings were available for 6 weeks. Also, I previously had my thyroid tested, and those lab values came back normal. My mother went through menopause at 55, so I am hoping that I am not at increased risk of early menopause.
    Any help is much appreciated!!!

    This is the wrong board for this question. This board is for women who are ALREADY pregnant. Try the Could I be Pregnant board or the Trying to Conceive board.
