Hi - my question is: have you gotten pregnant while you were experiencing cycles with 3-4 days of LIGHT spotting before AF?<br><br>
That is currrently where i'm at - fairly healthy overall, but every month I seem to have 3-4 days of light spotting (litterally a brownish drop or two per day) before AF comes (LP is about 14-ish days usually, including the spotting) and then AF comes and stays for 3-4 days.<br><br>
Just wondering what your experiences were and if you did anything to get rid of that spotting before you achieved you BFP.<br><br>
Thanks!<br><br><br>
BTW - I hope this is the right place for this question - if not, someone feel free to tell me where! Thanks!

I get light spotting before AF, usually a day with one little tiny bit, then a little more the next day, then a little more the next, with my period setting in on the fourth day. My luteal phase is only 10 days from ovulation to the first spotting. This is my second pregnancy :)

While on the pill I never used to get spotting before AF but as soon as we started ttc I always got spotting a few days before AF (we tried for 3 mo. prior to conceiving). The month I got pg, I still had spotting and was convinced I wasn't pg but evidently it turned out to be implantation spotting. So, what I am trying to say is that even if you end up with some spotting, you might still be pg. Good luck this month!

yes, after I stopped the Pill, I had brown spotting for three or four days before my period without fail. I used to think this interfered with my luteal cycle and that I wouldn't get pregnant without help. But then, surprise!<br>
Good luck!

hi and thanks for your encouraging responses!<br><br>
I haven't been on the pill for over a decade (oh, wow...hadn't thought of it that way before <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: ) and while i'm not sure HOW long this type of spotting has been going on (charting has really helped) i do know it's been different since AF came back after I recovered from an eating disorder several years ago. I sometimes think it's related to that...but lately i'm doing a lot of research on vitex and thinking about ways to strengthen my LP and just wanted to 'check in' with the preggo ladies to remind myself that it is altogether possible that it can happen no matter. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"><br><br>
Thanks! I am greatly cheered <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
And hh pregnancies to you!
