No, that is definitely not normal. It sounds like a light period but if you’re concerned should see a urologist.

oeno:  I’ve had periods like that. It’s not typical, but it does happen sometimes, exactly like you’ve described. Sometimes that’s the whole thing — the blood-on-TP stops and I’m done for the month. Sometimes that’s how it starts and then it turns into a regular period. For me it’s never been a sign of pregnancy or anything wrong. Since you’re TTC, if yours stops without getting heavier, I would test. If it does get heavier, I’d chalk it up as a weird period and try again next cycle.

Hmm…I sometimes spot like that for 2-3 days before my period actually starts (it’s red but only when I wipe and nothing on a pantyliner). Maybe your period is just wonky this cycle? Otherwise I was thinking it could possibly be implantation bleeding if you ovulated later, but I think that’s usually brown or light pink (or so I’ve read).

oeno:  Ok, slightly grossish suggestion coming up (or not really if you’re comfortable with your body): If you’re worried that it’s coming from your urinary tract, swab a q-tip up around your vagina. I bet it will come out pink, meaning the blood is coming from there. I would NOT try to swab your urethra!

Well the only time I had blood in my urine, which happened to me once in my life time, I thought it was a UTI but was actually a yeast infection due to taking so many pills all at once a day for at least a few weeks. I was trying to get better from my work related injury. Bad move. I got it cured but man, be careful with those infections it can be  painful.

I’m actually have been missing my period every other month at a time because of switching off pills now. So as much as i hate having my period I would like to see SOMETHING down there to let me know my body is OK!! Haha. 

Anyway. I don’t think it’s your period. It could be an infection. Get that taken cared of right away! Or if it is your period and you just don’t know,  just grab a tissue and check inside and if you see blood in there then yes it’s the real deal. :)) thank goodness for periods. ( never thought I’d say that haha)

I’ve had this for two cycles now. I notice brown spotting at night, and when I wake up in the morning I feel wet but nothing is in the liner. Yet when I urinate it comes out, and it’s red when I wipe. This lasts two to three days with two days brown spotting. My periods used to be 5-7 days with heavy flow on days 2-5. What could this be?
