hubby and i BD o-2, o-1, o and o+2 …now i am 6 days post ovulation and i started having period like bleeding….
i chart on FF, temp, and use opks. all confirmed ovulation this cycle. i am not taking any medications and have not been on the pill, etc.
i always have a 29 day cycle, regular, with no mid cucle bleeding. AF is not due for 8 days.
i have heard of implantation bleeding and started reading about it online. i feel like this bleeding is a bit more than jist spotting like the literature states.
can anyone who has had ‘implantation bleeding’ or any sort of period like bleeding like this and ended up with a BFP?
i just think it would be weird for me to get AF 8 days early when i am never ever off cycle…sigh
thank you for any insight!

I’ve seen a couple girls on the POAS boards who had red bleeding and thought they they got AF early but it was implantation bleeding and they got a BFP a couple days later. A 6 day LP would be incredibly short so I think it definitely could be IB or it could be just random spotting. If it is IB, you may be able to see a positive on a test in a couple days.

I have had random 6dpo spotting before. But never bleeding. Interesting. I know a few girls on here said they read stories of IB being spotting, but then they had what you described and were shocked to get BFPs. Its one of those things that you are just going to have to wait and see. Good luck!

I totally had bright red bleeding that I thought was the start of my period as implantation bleeding. Mine started on 8 dpo and was more like heavy spotting I guess, but I kept thinking almost the same thing as you, “NO WAY is this anything like every single website describes as implantation bleeding/spotting. There is NO WAY there can be a thriving embryo down there with as much spotting and bleeding as I’m having. There is NO WAY I’m pregnant, this is just my stupid period coming super early.” It was brown/red and kind of intermittent throughout the day, but at least 1 time during 8 dpo, 9 dpo, and 10 dpo it was heavy enough to drip in the toilet when I went to the bathroom. It stopped on 11 dpo and my temperature stayed elevated, which is kind of why I had a hunch that something was up and it wasn’t just the start of my period.
BFP on 11 dpo with first morning urine. I’m 22 weeks now and everything’s going well. 🙂
