Hello everyone!!

Ok let me start off by saying that I have a very irregular period so it is hard for me to track down when I am going to ovulate. Last month my pd came on the 23rd and in June it came around the 10th (I know it drives me crazy!!). My husband and I are trying to have a baby and we had sex on Aug 6 and today I notice a little bit of reddish discharge. Is this implantation bleeding? It is not heavy like a period, and I have also had a MC and it is nothing like that. When my period does come it never starts out with this type of blood. Is it too early for implantation bleeding?? When can I take a HPT??

Thank you everyone :)

Early HPTs can be taken up to 5 days before your missed period. However, read the box carefully--not all women show that early, even if pg. I'd say if you're near AF's due date, test. if not, welcome to the 2ww. We all get through it one way or the other. I do have to say that this is a wonderful group of supportive women on here--it really helps the 2ww.

Are you doing anything to track your ovulation?
