Those all sound like pregnancy symptoms, but I didn’t feel anything at 4 dpo. I think I first noticed symptoms at about 8 dpo, and I first tested at 9 dpo.

That doesn’t mean you couldn’t be feeling symptoms, though! Wish I could tell you something more concrete. The wait before you can test is an eternity.

If you look up anything, the internet will tell you it’s a pregnancy symptom. Also, a lot of the “symptoms” are the same whether you’re pregnant or getting your period.

I think it’s highly, highly unlikely that you would be experiencing any symptoms now if you turn out to be pregnant later. If you did ovulate, and the egg was fertilized, it’s unlikely to have even implanted yet.

Also, Implanon can really screw up your hormone levels. I don’t know exactly how the ovulation tests work, but it may take a couple of months for your body to get back to normal.

When you say the OPK is positive – do you mean a line shows up, or it is darker than the the control? Sorry if you know this already, but sometimes people are confused. An OPK isn’t considered positive until it is at least as dark as the control, or darker.

If you HAVE had 2 genuine positive OPKs, then that’s not unheard of either – a couple of cycles ago I had a a positive test then another one 2 weeks later, luckily I was tracking my temps so I knew what was happening. OPKs only measure your LH, which is the hormone that rises in your body before you O, but doesn’t confirm that you WILL or HAVE ovulated. Sometimes our bodies gear up to O but don’t quite get there.

Finally – I have heard of people getting positive OPKs when they are actually pregnant – have you tested again with a preg test?

The spots of blood could be anything… I wouldn’t worry too much unless it becomes a consistent problem.

My guess is that your body is still regulating after coming off hormones. And all those symptoms are just your body readjusting to your own natural hormones.

All early pregnancy symptoms are the same as PMS symptoms, you just haven’t had PMS symptoms for years – and when we start TTC we start noticing EVERY LITTLE THING!! Welcome to the crazy world of TTC ๐Ÿ™‚
