    I thought there was a chance I could have been pregnant but last Wednesday I did a neg test and then started my period almost straight after :? I bled for two days as normal (quite heavy) and then two days of a small brown discharge. Since I finished I have been bloated, cant stop eating, have aching breasts, feel extremely tired and have a backache, I have also gained 4lb in 6 days which is really unusual for me, its almost like my period hormones have reversed themselves, Is it worth me taking another test or does it sound like my hormones are just playing up? Has this happened to anyone else? Thank you.

    thats exactly whats happening with me. I was almost positive that i was pregnant but then recieved my period or what i think was my period.that has just lasted 2 days and it wasnt as heavy as it normally is. i was supposed to be due on the 28th of this month but arrived like 8 days early.still feel myself that im pregnant.i've heard that this could sometimes be called implantation bleeding and i've also heard that people experience it different.i would say take a test at the start of next week. give your HCG levels a chance to increase if you are pregnant.ill be doing the same. let me know how you get on.
    GOOD LUCK!!!

    Well my implantation spotting happened a week before my AF was due which alerted me to the fact that I might be pregnant. It happened about 6 or 7 days after I ovulated (about three weeks after my last period).
    According to the book I was reading, this was about the right time.

    But I suppose the time taken can probably vary a lot from person to person.

    If the symptoms keep on coming I would wait another couple of days and do another test, to put your mind at rest.

    hope this helps
