Wondering if anyone has had mid luteal phase spotting and NOT preg.
I had brown spots on my underwear @ 8 DPO, now @ 10 and 11 DPO have dark brown when wiping. We are TTC, but don’t want to psych myself up too much that it’s implantation bleeding and am not able to test until Th or Fri bc I’m out of town.
My last luteal phase was 13 days and I typically don’t have AF symptoms that jump out at me. I usually have to go by dip in temp below the coverline as a heads up that AF will be coming that day. I don’t really have any other symptoms at this time besides the spotting and creamy CF.
Any thoughts or experiences are welcome!

It could be IB but it could just be early AF spotting. It’s hard to tell.
TBH, everyone symptoms spots. I have noticed lately that the month where you don’t have any symptoms is usually the month you’re PG. Good luck!

Since I’ve started ttc I’ve noticed I get spotting for 4 / 5 days pre AF. My GP thinks it’s polyps, so is sending me for an ultrasound to check it out. I think it’s low progesterone, but she refuses to do hormonal blood tests as we haven’t been trying that long (on cycle 5).
Bleeding at 8dpo sounds like implantation bleeding is possible cause – do you think you had it before ttc, or have you only started noticing now you’re more likely to be ‘symptom spotting’ during tww?

@pink_sherbert: it’s really hars to know what my cycle did prior to this bc i was on mirena for 4 years and on other forms of BC since i was 15. I’m trying so hard not to nitpick symptoms….
