I’ve been a long time lurker and am finally posting hoping to get some help from you lovely ladies 🙂
So my period is crazy, and for the past 6 months hasn’t started on a consistent date. Last month it started on the 12th, the month before that the 7th and the month before that it was the 3rd. So I really never know when it’s going to come. Last month I had egg white CM from the 23-26. Me and my hubby cough didthedeed cough on the 22. I had dark brown discharge on the 27th and then it went away. Now I’m spotting again but it’s lighter than it was before. Could this be implantation bleeding or is my period coming? My body is so off track I don’t know what’s going on. So frustrated!!

@ohsosassy: My period before going on the pill never arrived on a specific date, but was almost always exactly 25 days after the last. It would help you if you counted days instead on focusing on the number, since months have different numbers of days. Once you have a handle on your average cycle length, you’ll be better able to guess if your period is due or not.
When I came off the pill, my period was 21 days the first month, and I got pregnant the second month. I was however paying attention to my EWCM, and so I knew when my period was due. I would have been about 25 days that month.
As for could this be a pregnancy sympton, sure, anything is possible. Best bet? Do a pregancy test.
If this is what you want, good luck!

It could be implantation bleeding… but it’s hard to say. Really, the only way to find out what a normal cycle for you is, or when your fertile days are, or for that matter, to have a better gauge for whether this is implantation bleeding, is by charting CM & your BBT. It sounds like you’re just relying on days on the calendar, and that’s not going to give you enough information to be certain.
That said, for now, once your period is a few days past your best guess at when it was due, I’d take a test. It’s the best way to be sure at this point.
