My cycle has been very strange this month, I have always had a regular cycle around 30 days and a 6 day period. I can't use any hormonal birth control because of health issues. We have been using the withdrawal method for the last 8 months successfully. I know it's not the most reliable method out there but we're both around 30, in a LTR and accept the risk. We aren't ready to start a family just yet. I'm not consistent enough in charting my CM or temps so I'm not sure when I ovulate.
My LMP started Aug 2. I thought it stopped on the 7th but I started bleeding (heavily, like a period) again on the 8th, and continued until the 11th. On the 11th we were intimate, (sorry if TMI) because I was still bleeding he assumed it was safe and didn't pull out. (Oops!) We weren't intimate again until the 18th.
On the 20th I noticed some dark pink discharge on TP. I put on a pantyliner but it stopped almost immediately. I have never had spotting between periods before. I realized that if I conceived on the 11th, it would be exactly the right time for implantation bleeding! It fits the descriptions I've seen for it too. I'm really worried and kicking myself now. I hoped that if I was still menstruating I probably wasn't fertile. After going over my calendar, it looks like I definitely could have been fertile that day.
What do you think? I guess I just need to wait to test and see if my next period comes on time. I'm just trying not to drive myself absolutely crazy waiting. I feel stupid that we made such a careless mistake and I'm freaking out over it.
