Decidual bleed and not period?? Any thoughts please :-)
Hi, this was my previous post but there was no luck with any answers but I have had a bit of strange period..
I gave up my pill (cerazette) around Christmas time 2011. Whilst taking Cerazette I continued to have my periods. After coming off the pill my cycles became regular straightaway. They appear to be a 25 or 26 day day cycle and I have been bleeding between 4 to 6 days. In my most recent cycle we had sex at the beginning of my fertile period and ovulation date (according to my calendar). So we haven't been trying very hard to get pregnant. 1 week after this time I was having a dull crampy pain and sharp shooting pains in my abdomen. I had also felt a tight feeling, twinges and pulling. I then waited to see if my period was going to come on. I started getting period pain around the time my period was due with an achy back etc and I got a bad migraine for a couple of days that I was struggling to get rid of (I suffer from migraines often but I normally get rid of it quite quickly with my medication). I was 1 day late and I woke up with bad period pain and thought I had come on as I felt damp but when I looked there was no blood. The same thing happened the next day but then when I went to the toilet and wiped there was a massive blob of light pink egg white covering the toilet paper. I was then convinced I was pregnant because I have never had this before. However I then started bleeding slightly shortly afterwards but not a lot. I also felt weak, dizzy, tired and sickly. Today I have woken up again with bad period pain cramping with sharp pains in my abdomen and a migraine feeling once again. The blood seems to have more of a flow now and is a quite dark red/brown colour. I was hoping maybe I was just having an implantation bleed but I think it is my period. Anyway I was wondering what that massive blob of light pink cervical mucus was that covered the paper.. does anyone know what this might have been seen as I have never experienced it before??
Back to now...
As I said I was a day late and had a lot of light egg white cervical mucus that came out on the toilet paper which I have never had before. After that I had spotting, which led onto a very light bleeding. I wore a pad at bedtime and normally at the start of my period it is flooded but it wasn't, there were just an odd blood mark. I went to the toilet when I got up and there was some blood on the tissue. I waited a while and then I felt a gush of fluid so I went to the toilet and the blood had become heavy. However I do not feel it has been as heavy as normal as I have used less tampons. The period I had before lasted 4 days. This time I thought I had finished after 4 days when I looked at the end of the day. The next day there was no bleeding until the evening when I had some light bleeding again on the tissue. I bled very lightly the next day and now has stopped. I still seem to have some mild period and back pain. I have heard of decidual bleeding and thought that may be with the mucus I had and then the unusual bleeding that it could be this, or am I just clutching at straws?? I haven't tested as I have just found out about decidual bleeding and I am worried it will come up negative. Also whilst I was on the progesterone only pill Cerazette I continued to have periods where most people I have met that are on it there periods completely stopped (don't know why I was different). I don't know if this would mean I would be more likely to have decidual bleeding or not, but it was just a thought. I also forgot to mention in my other post that I had come down with a cold before I bled and I still have a runny nose now. I think my areolar on my right breast is bigger as well and my breasts and nipples are more sensitive than normal. And I also do no like anything laying across my abdomen even my waistband feels uncomfortable. But I may just be noticing these things more because I want to be pregnant.
Hi I know this was only in March but did you end up pregnant?? I am currently in the same boat?? I didn't bleed as much though but yes I'm very confused I've already got a daughter but I found out at 3 months with her do I wouldn't have a clue what's going on lol??
Here is my story...4 days ago i went to toilet and wiped and (tmi) the toilet paper just slid through because i had cm there. that evening i has a little very light pink blood when i wiped again. since then i've had bleeding light pink/brown and not enough to fill a pad. not red either!
I came off cerazette 4 weeks ago now, was only on for 3 months and didnt get a period at all, before that i was on other pills and had regular periods, all medium-heavy. i've never experienced a period like this before.
I was wondering if perhaps it was implantation or just the boring old witch back to haunt me
Thanks for your replies. I got BFN.. really frustrating. Just come on here because I have got new symptoms and saw your posts. Because I was getting so disappointed I decided to stop looking for symptoms and try a more relaxed approach to it, though I am getting a bit stressed about it now. I have just started using a fertility lubricant. This month I have had a cold since 4dpo (if my calendar is correct) and I am now 11 dpo. AF due in 3 days. My cold came out of nowhere, I had not been around anyone with a cold but since then a few people have caught it. Anyway my cold is still bad, sore throat is a bit better but I have such a runny nose which keeps getting blocked and a cough with lots of mucus at the back of my throat. I would have thought that it would have been a lot better by now but it seems worse and I am so tired. Also at the start of it I got 2 or 3 mouth ulcers which I have not had in a very long time. Last week I started waking up in the middle of the night to pee, which I never do. Then 9dpo I started doing things in my sleep which is rare for me and I really scared my partner, at that time I noticed that my pyjamas were soaked through and had to change.. I had had a night sweat, which I have never had before, even when I'm poorly I do not get night sweats. Woke up this morning with a migraine (I do suffer from migraines though). I have also had constipation and I could feel a bump above my pubic bone which is rounded and fairly firm, but wondered if this is just bloating. It feels a bit sore too, as well as my back and my left hip keeps hurting. My last period was 2 days late and lasted 5 days rather than my usual 4, but was brighter red and very thin, not dark and with clots. It did fill the tampons but I felt like I used less but I still think it was my period, may have been different because the month before I had a really bad bleed. I'm hoping these new symptoms are going to result in BFP.
