Ar your cycles that exact that you couldnt possibly get AF in the next few days? I always have very light spoting a few days before full AF.

Ugh I’m having the same exact problem. I usually stop a bit before my period but I’ve been spotting for 5 days now. This is my second cycle since my Mirena removal and we are ttc. I hope it’s just my system regulating. I don’t think I will date my new cycle until I have a certain AF. Did you recently come off birth control?

ladybird:  my experience was a little different, because I got spotting a week before I was due for AF. Dark brown, very scant for several days. Never got a true AF, went to the doctor and after multiple BFNs (home and blood test) she said she didn’t think I was ovulating. She started me on progesterone to reset my cycle two months ago. I’m about to revisit and get a followup

I’m not saying that’s what’s happening to you, but if AF doesn’t happen in another week, I would make an appointment with your doctor just to ease your mind. I totally understand about feeling worried about your body and frustrated with a lack of answers. That’s why I just went , because I was agonizing. And while I wasn’t happy with the result (BFN) , I was happy to have some kind of reassurance and potential solution .

ladybird:  The same thing happened to me last month. I started brown spotting about 4 days before AF was supposed to show. 3 days in to spotting, AF did show up, but was a bit different than usual. It was our first month of TTC and I sort of think that the combination of stress and excitment just threw my body out of whack.  I wasn’t quite sure if I should count my first day of spotting or the first day of real AF as CD1. Now, I’m at the end of that cycle and I’m getting AF symptoms, but it hasn’t started yet. FX that we both get back to normal asap!!!
