My name is Heather, I had my last period on the 8th of August, and woke up to some light pink bleeding. It is september 1st, and I am experiencing no pms signs. I am trying to get pregnant. Now, I am wearing a pad... the pad has dark discharge (tiny bit) and light pink blood. When I wipe after urination, there is bright red blood, but it does not seep out of my vagina, unless I wipe. It does not stain my panty liner. I ovulated around the 18- 23 of august, and had lots of sex to try and get pregnant. I am afraid this is my period, but I get so many different answers on IB. Can someone let me know what they think? I normally wouldve had severe back pain and pimples before my period, but I havent had any symptoms. I am kinda constipated which never happens. I just need some imput. Thank you ladies. Much Love.
Well, I hope that you are since you're trying. I have to say from your description that it "sounds" like the start of your period, but I am, of course, not a professional! It does seem too early for your period, but you may have ovulated earlier than normal, which has happened to me. Wait 5 days before the expected start of your next period, and test first thing in the morning. Be sure and give an update on here! GOOD LUCK!!!
