Implantation bleed or very early period?!


Hi all, I am a two week wait newbie and not doing very well with all this waiting! *taps fingers impatiently on table*

This is our first month of TTC. At 12dpo, I started bleeding and it carried on for four days. At first, judging from the timings, I thought it could be implantation bleeding. My cycle is 28 days like clockwork, never experienced an early period before, and this one is 7 days early. But when the bleeding exceeded a few days and became heavier and red, I had doubts again. I've had two negative tests, but my normal period isn't due for another few days so I might have tested too early for a positive result. I have had a bit of nausea (this could be down to all the Easter eggs), and an occasional mettalic taste in my mouth, same as I had during my last pregnancy.

This bleed has really thrown me, normally I'd just assume I wasn't PG, but it's just so unusual. Can't remember whether I had any early bleeds with my son, as I didn't find out I was PG until 7 weeks.

Has anyone had a similar experience?

Hi. I had my baby boy just before xmas.

I experienced early bleeding before I knew I was expecting him. I thought it was my period arriving early. Then when I took a pregnancy test and it was positive I thought I was having a miscarriage. The bleeding (very light pink) continued for a few days and then stopped. I took another pregnancy test and the line was very dark this time. I also saw the mifwife at my GP surgery. She sent me for an early scan because of the bleeding..... low and behold his little heartbeat was on the screen! Therefore, the bleeding I experienced must have been implantation bleeding. And remember, every pregnancy is different, just becuase you didn't bleed early with your first child it doesn't mean you won't bleed with this one! Good Luck!

oh, I also experience a metallic taste in my mouth quite early on.

Thank you! I guess I need to hold out until the 14th (when my period will definitely be late and a test should be accurate) before I know for sure either way. Bleeding has varied between brown/pink and light, and then red and heavier like a normal period so it's quite confusing!

I have an update.

Impatience got the better of me and I decided I might as well waste another couple of quid and use up my last pregnancy test today, instead of waiting two more days when my usual period would most definitely be late.

Well, it's faint, but there's most definitely a positive line there. I'm really pleased (although slightly unsure whether the bleeding could have been a very early miscarriage).

Fingers crossed for you that it's not a miscarriage. It may be just everything settling down in there. When I was expecting my boy I also tested before my period was late, and it showed a very faint positive line :-)

I am havingr similar symptoms to you. I have only recently come off cerazette 3 weeks ago. Had my period 4 days later which lasted 6-7 days as normal. Had sex Tuesday and then Thursday started cramping, Friday same with brownish pink discharge that got more through out day. Sat serious cramping and heavier, same Sunday, today much lighter.
So it's been a bit like a light period but not sure what to make of it as this would be my second period in 2 weeks if it was!

I was wondering if you could take a look at my thread post and give me an opinion? I'm new here so I'm trying to get opinions.

Hi Me and my partner have been TTC for 8 months with no luck every month my period arrives. This month we were on holiday at the one of ovulation and thought since we were both relaxed this could be the month 10 days after ovulation a week before my period was due I have started bleeding with absolutely no normal period symptoms apart from sore breasts. It wasn't heavy at first but I had to go to work so used a tampon. It is quite reddy. Is it my period? Thanks (good luck to all others TTC)
