    Implantation Bleeding???
    esparza13 posted:
    Good Morning Ladies!

    Okay so I am in NEED OF HELP!
    So me and my boyfriend had sex on Feb 21'st and I was supposed to get my period on the 1st of March. I missed my period and a week and a few days later I started bleeding on the 9th of March. This has been nothing like my usual period. When I went to the restroom it was a gush of dark almost brown blood and then after that I kept on bleeding but still not the normal amount. I had cramps but not really bad. Then the next day it got lighter and on my tampon it was brown brown blood with a bit of dark blood and way less . Then as the day three got here I stopped then started again still light. Day four was just brown spotting that just left the top of my tampon dirty (tmi) sorry. I also woke up like if I had a hangover and I felt like throwing up ...Kindof like if youd gotten wasted the night before.
    Then I stopped completely on day 5 and felt sick.Today is day 6 and I went to the restroom this morning an hour ago and a small gush of darker than my normal period came and light cramps along with it.
    My nipples are darker (the areola) but they dont hurt. Oh and I tested a week after having sex and a BFN then I tested exactly on the 2nd week mark still a negative but then this bleeding happened 3 days later. This is now three weeks since we had sex.

    Me and my boyfriend are trying to conceive before he deploys to Afghanistan in June...
    Is it possible I am ?

    Implantation bleeding isn't common and when it does happen, it's spotting for a few hours, not bleeding for a few days.

    I'd say you just had an off period.

    Oh , okay . I just wasn't sure since I did some research and there have been cases of woman bleeding for the length period of a "normal" period. Also I read that implantation can last up fro a few hours up to 4 days. Which is why I was kind of skeptic..

    There are many discussions I have read that state how bleeding has occurred and heavy for some as well. I am trying to figure that out myself. I have the same thing going on now. I skipped my period in February. March 1st got my normal pd. Then March 27th I started spotting daily until March 30th first 24 hrs was heavy then medium and then light. I thought it went away and each day once a day until April 2 I experienced brown discharge. I took a test April 4th, but negative so I will have to wait and see what happens. Just take it easy until you experience a regular cycle.Good luck and God bless you and your b/f. I hope your prayers are answered as do mine.
