    you know the bit of brown spotting we have for a few days before AF?

    well one of the reasons I forgot about Af is that I started with that last Monday, so just assumed test was right. Then it stopped and has never come back :think:

    When I queried with my doctor about it at the last visit, she said not to worry and it means nothing, and that it didn't mean anything was wrong with progesterone levels, that it wouldn't make any diff to a viable pregnancy.

    I'm just wondering with that coming then AF not arriving....??

    Did you ever query it with the doctor and what did they say?

    Oooo a thread with my name on it :cheer: :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:


    He said the same as you too hun. Although my spotting lasts around 7 days before AF, apart from last month when I had non :think: . He sent me for swabs but they came back fine, no infections. So I guess it isn't anything to worry about, just a pain.

    Have you got your BFP yet?

    I've been getting several days of spotting before my AF the last couple of cycles too. I'm planning on going to see my doc about it too this week.

    I started spotting 9DPO and had cramps to boot as well for 2/3 days. This has coincided with my period being heavier than normal and I'm on day 7 of it and it's still fresh red blood :?

    I'm charting my temps as well and at the same time that I had the spotting my temps dropped which does suggest a drop in progesterone levels to me.

    Libs - could it be an implantation bleed if the spotting has stopped. Is your AF overdue?

    By the way, I went to the docs today. She's a new doctor, very young and not very experienced.

    She didn't seem to know much about this area. Said spotting was nothing to worry about, shouldn't affect TTC. Didn't take any swabs.

    I asked about my period being 7 days of proper bleeding, was this anything to be concerned about. She said not. She put it all down to my cycles settling down after having my son. Been 18 months since I've had him but she's right in some ways, it's only been last 4 months that I've seen a return to a normal cycle length for me.

    She didn't seem to grasp that I was telling her that 7 days of proper bleeding and several days of spotting prior to that was not normal for me.

    If I have the same next month, I'll go back to see a different doctor. I've never had periods that last for this long ever.

    no Af yet :cheer: and you're right - I'm generally v regular - only other time I was this late was mc so hoping my bfp is there waiting for me when I test Saturday. I didn't want to test till then, so if it was a chemical it should have disappeared by then

    have 3 hours off work tomorrow morning (woohoo merry christmas :roll: ) so buying then. Actually I'll probably do one tomorrow night :oops:
