I usually start my period around day 34. However this month im on day 54 and im very confused. I had a LOT of cervical mucus which lasted around two weeks then it turned brown so i put a pad on and there were a few drops and a bit when i wiped then it turned red then back to brown then back to red and ive had a bit today,there's a bit on my pad and some when i wipe but not as much as when i have my period and im not cramping. I haven't had my usual PMS symptoms,i usually have bad headaches and my nipples are usually extremely sore to the touch but at the moment i can touch them and they do not hurt.Ive had a bit of acne but not as much as usual. Ive read up on decidual bleeding and im wondering if this is what it is. I havent done a test as im waiting to see if it turns into a proper period,but this brown and red stuff has been going on for longer than a week and my period only lasts 5 days.
