"IT'S NOT THE LENGTH OF THE GESTATION, IT'S THE EXTENT OF THE ATTACHMENT."

Like my title? That's what we're going to talk about. You could hardly wait, right?

Wednesday: very faint, minuscule amount, though noticeable amount of pink showed up on the tissue.

Thursday: a little longer streak of pink

Friday: small amount (a p.antyliners worth) of old brown stuff showed up.

Saturday: had intercourse to jump-start it. Ooh, another dot of pink!

Sunday: Nothing.

Monday: Nothing.

What the hell? Has anyone ever had a cycle like this? And no, I have not tested, and I'm not going to. Although, I'd love to! I'm not. We have been careful to not get pregnant (wah!) so I don't want to get my hopes up. Any suggestions, thoughts or opinions?

no pain. no nothing. i had very minor cramping and back aches, but that's nothing new. i keep waiting for something, but there's nothing happening. i've had crazy cycles before but none like this.

Are you on any new medications? Trying a different BC pill?

The only cycles I ever had like this were when I was on Seasonale (sp?). You are only supposed to get 4 periods a year, but I would get a period like yours on the non-period months. On the period months mine lasted 2-3 weeks. I ended up quitting that pill because it wasn't worth it.

I would note what happened this month and if it is weird again, call the OB/GYN. There may be nothing going on but at least you can find out for sure.

How late is your "period"?

Monica H said...

Rachel- I'm not on BC pills and I haven't been for over 2 years. I am on an antibiotic, but that's it.

Beth- The "pink" started around the time I should have had a period. It wasn't late at all, but there isn't/wasn't any real substance though.
