Hey Gemmah, so I got my period (well sort of) 2 days ago. It was a very very light pink colour and then the next day it turned to a dark brown colour and it hasn’t changed since. I haven’t gotten a blood clot this whole entire period and its been really light. Like I know this is unsanitary but I haven’t exactly changed my pad in two days cause of how light it is and it hasn’t even filled my pad up yet. My partner and I are trying for a baby but I’m not pregnant as I’ve taken pregnancy tests that have come up negative so why am I bleeding like this? The first day was just spotting and same with yesterday kind of and today has been a bit heavier but not by much. I am really confused because my body has never done this before. Not even with the medication I’m on. Can you please help me?
It’s totally normal for the length, volume & look of our periods to change over time. However, some women also experience implantation bleeding, which is spotting in the early stages of pregnancy. Sometimes during this stage a pregnancy test will come back negative.
Try wearing a lower absorbency pad or even a liner. That way you’ll still be protected & you won’t be wearing the same pad for ages.
When things seem out of the ordinary, it’s always best to schedule an appointment & talk it through with your doctor.
Good luck conceiving! Feel free to check out our Tips for Getting Pregnant.
