    Its usually when you have had a +ve HPT then start bleeding a few days later
    Its when the egg is fertilised but dies soon after implantation. You usually get a heavier period and blood clots and cramping. This is what I experienced last week. :cry:

    I wouldnt worry, its the very early stage of pregnancy, when I had one at 16 I didnt even know I was pregnant!! I went to the doctors and he confirmed it.
