Hi, im a little confused, I had my last depo injection in october 2012 so would have been due to have it in jan 13 but didnt. Been ttc since then, periods came straight away although they werent regular again until april/may time, my last period was 22nd july so was due to come on next period 20th august, I was late and had all preg symtoms but negative tests, then on 26th august I started bleeding but this was not like a 'normal period' for me was alot lighter than usual and lasted 3 days then 2 days of spotting brownish colour blood ( sorry for tmi) my question is has anyone had this and been pregnant? I havent done a test since ive had the bleeding. Im not sure if this was implantation bleeding or a chemical pregnancy possibly? I also had cramping and bad lower back pain which didnt feel like my usual mestrual cramps
Thanks in advance

The bleeding was too heavy and lasted too long for it to be implantation bleeding. It's possible you are pregnant and not showing on the test or you didn't ovulate. You can wait and see if your next period comes or ask for a blood test.

Definitely too heavy for implantation. Could be a period or it could be a chemical pregnancy too. (Your hcg might have not gone up high enough for it to register on the HPT). May chemical pregnancies end right around the time you would have gotten a period and it'll appear to be a period that's a few days late. It's hard to say.
