My husband and I are TTC. I’ve been using digital ovulation tests and we tested positive for ovulation last Thursday (cd 17). We’ve been hanging sex every other day for the last two weeks and today and yesterday I’ve had very minor/dull cramping and a creamy slight pink discharge. Could this be implantation??? It would only be about 4dpo so I’m not sure if implantation can happen this early…. Anyone else start feeling implanation symptoms 3/4dpo?
My period is not due for another week (nov 5th) and I’m usually very regular with my periods.

Sounds like ovulation bleeding. 4dpo is way to early

@April2013Girl: You could still be spotting. Also you could be having some pink discharge from sex. Perhaps, even if you didn’t feel pain, you could have been scratched or something. 4 DPO would be a bit too early to have inplantation as that usually occurs 9 days past or at the very least 6-12 days.

Implantation at the earliest happens at 6DPO so I highly doubt it’s implantation bleeding. I would also say it could be delayed ovulation bleeding or irritation of some sort.

Much more likely related to ovulation. If you got a positive OPK 4 days ago, you actually likely ovulated 2-3 days ago. OPKs detect your LH surge, which is before you ovulate. When I used OPKs, I’d usually get a positive OPK then ovulate 1.5-2 days later (confirmed by temping). Like @megz06 stated, implantation usually occurs 6-10 days after ovulation.

@April2013Girl: Are you certain about your O date? OPKs indicate that your body is gearing up to O, but they don’t confirm it. Only temping can confirm O.

@April2013Girl: Implantation is typically from 4DPO-10DPO. It is possible, but a test won’t come up positive until implantation has occurred, so I’d still wait at least 4 or 5 days before taking a test, and that still could easily come up negative that early. Good luck to you!!

4DPO is early but possible. Fairly certain that I implanted on 4DPO when I got pregnant (29w now!)

I’ve had this too! I am the same DPO as you and have also had pinky and tan/light brown CM (only when I wipe) for the past 2 days. I am fairly certain my O day is right, since I chart and it was confirmed with CM, OPK and temp spike. So it seems too late for ovulation bleeding (plus I think I already had O spotting on my actual O day, which was more a tiny streak of red in CM, sorry for TMI). I know this is too early for implantation bleeding, so I have been worried about what is causing it. Has anyone else had this symptom and gone on to get a BFP? I am hoping it doesn’t mean something is wrong and that I am out this month … 🙁
OP – did you end up finding any other info?

Just a little update for you all….. I am now at CD 26 and According to Prenology, my implantaion date was yesterday/today and boy am i having awful cramps! I never get cramps like this before AF is due. I usually get bad cramps half way through my period. They startedagain yesterday and even worse today.
Really hoping this means this is the month! AF is not due until Nov 5th so i’m trying my very best to hold off until then to test. I started last week with a sore throat which grew into a terrible cold and ive heard that sometimes that is an early pregnancy symptom. Hmmmmm. We shall see in a couple days! Its so hard waiting!
@peachbee: how are you feeling now since we are the same DPO.

@April2013Girl: I have my AF due at the same time as you. I.e. Nov 5!
I had a BIG dip on 6 DPO but, as per my charting, my temp has been dropping as of yesterday so I guess I will be gettin’ AF soon. Do you temp?

@Sasha2011: Not Yet. I think i might start next month if I dont get my BFP soon! Good luck to you!

As much as I know logically that 5dpo is the EARLIEST an egg can implant, I definitely had symptoms before that with both my pregnancies; feeling flushed, tired, having to pee. I’m positive it wasn’t all in my head… so I don’t know what the deal was… :S
