I had some bright red blood this morning and now some brown spotting. Called the Dr. and he said to still test in a few days but he also said it could be implantation bleeding. Although I thought implantation bleeding happened 5 days after you ovulate...He said it could happen 12-13 days after the trigger shot (and today is day 14) I am also confused because I am taking progesterone and I normally dont get a period until I stop the progesterone. He said it is still possible to get a period while on the progesterone. He said if this cycle didn't work sometimes the body doesn't wait. So now I have to wait a few days, although the hope doesn't seem to be there. I thought for sure I was pregnant but I guess it was all psychological. I peed on a stick today and it was negative. I know it is too early to test but I was hoping.
Has anyone had implantation bleeding this late or does it sound like AF?
The only rational answer is that you just need to wait and see.
The more detailed answer would be that implantation can occur more than 5 days after conception and the bleeding associated with it can also occur several days after the actual implantation, especially if it is brown. Spotting can also ocur for many other reasons during early pregnancy so, in theory, you could be pregnant and implanted several days ago and still be spotting.
On the other hand, it could be the early signs of AF. Perhaps you would have started your period if you weren't on progesterone and it resulted on spotting. New drugs, especially injectibles can also change your normal pattern.
I hope it turns out positive in a few days.
AFM: I still did not get my period, which is odd, making this one of my longest cycles so far. I also know that I did not ovulate once again so I am a little scared that I might not ever get a period again and that I am out of eggs.
