What is Breakthrough Bleeding?


Hi, im just wondering if anyone knows what Breakthrough bleeding is?

I had a 1 1/2 day bleed. At first i thought it was AF but it just seemed different.

Has anyone experienced Breakthrough Bleeding before or could shed some light on it??

Thanks so much, im just puzzled by my weird short period.

Aww I was hoping you would get some answers. I woke up with it being 10 DPO but then I started having a light period a few hours later. I thought it may be implantation bleeding cause of how light it was and my periods usually start off heavier, but then I got really bad cramps (which the timing is weird cause I always get cramps before AF actually comes). So I am not getting my hopes up and I'm just going to assume it's AF unless it doesn't get heavier. It's been pretty light all day so we'll see what happens tomorrow. I thought I might have a chance this month cause I have symptoms I have never had before (night sweats and hot flashes the last few nights, stuffy nose and really thirsty but only at night, tender breasts but only near the armpits, and now today all of a sudden my teeth hurt (both sides are sensitive and that never happens). Do you have any weird symptoms too?

Hi to both of you! I can't help with the break through bleeding but wanted to share a story with you about implantation bleeding...I just had a friend who was about 3-5 days past O and started seeing brownish, sometimes red spotting when she went to the bathrom as well as bad cramping. She totally thought she was getting/had her period as this continued for 9 days (YES, I said 9!) and at one point it was heavy enough to where she wore a tampon. But because this was quite an odd and light "period" for her, she had doubts and she also had some symptoms she was unsure of. She took many tests all BFN but it wasn't until yesterday (so what 14-16 days past O she got a faint but POSITVE test! Moral of the story, implantation bleeding may last longer than the commonly noted 2-3 days and can be heavier! Good luck and much baby dust!

Weird isnt it... how long is your LP? Have you gotten any of these symptoms before AF? I have a 14 day LP and i started to bleed then.

Well i cramped all through my cycle from Ovulation but then i stopped 3 days before i started to bleed. Through out my cycle i had sore nipples, so so tired, found it hard to sleep when i did go to my bed, vivid dreams, headaches.
When i did bleed at the start it was pink spotting. The following day it was med/light flow, dark red. The next morning there was nothing... then in the afternoon i started bleeding again but it was bright red, kindda thick but with dark specks (tiny clots) in it, then it stopped. Since then its just been brown blood when i wipe.

Ive had a headache all day and i was sick after lunch.

I just dont know what to think....

Good luck, i hope this weird cycle brings us both some unpredicted happy news

Wow, thats an amazing story... i got my positive OPK test on the 16th of september, so i could have ovulated between then and the 18th. I started bleeding on the 2nd of Oct but like i said, only lasted a day and a half, rest of the time its been spotting.

Thanks for taking the time to read and reply!! x

I have an 11 day LP. Could you be ready to test by now? I'm never gotten the hot flashes/sweats or teeth hurting before AF. I also have been having vivid dreams the last week or so. I am still bleeding a little. Just enough to wipe away and a tiny bit on the pad between restroom visits. I hope we both have happy results too. Good luck!

My AF is due Oct 8th and since last 2 days I have been having brown discharge. Usually I get this before my AF starts, worried if its the same.

What DPO are you ladies in? I am on 10-11DPO took a cheap preg test and got a BFN

I had a bit of bleeding the day after we bd. I don't know if it was break through bleeding or not. Just there when I wiped once. I was kinda shocked.
