I woke this morning with AF-like bleeding. The strange thing is that the shortest cycle I have had in the past 7 years is 27 days. If this is AF then this last cycle was 25 days. It is bright red and a decent amount (if it was a few days from now I wouldn't even question whether or not it was AF). We did BD cd10, which was either 2 or 4 days before O (I haven't been charting). I don't want to be obsessive and really am more concerned that something is wrong than that I may be PG. AF isn't due until Wed or Thurs so I don't think a HPT would show yet.

Anyone else suddenly get AF really early? I am usually SO regular. And I never had bleeding with my first two PG's.

TIA.

Kate, I had a 24 day cycle in Jan/Feb when I was sick (my previous 5 cycles had been 27 days). That was the shortest cycle I've EVER had, before or after BCPs. It was also the first cycle I was charting, so I'm just now figuring out that I probably O'd early (maybe due to fever, stress, who knows?). Have you been sick, under a lot of stress, etc?

You know your body better than anyone, so if you think it's AF, I'd say it probably is. Of course, you can always take a HPT if it would make you feel better to know. It might also help to chart the next few cycles if this is AF....you may get an idea of what could have caused your 25 day cycle.

Chances are there's nothing wrong...you just had a short cycle. It sucks when AF plays tricks on us! (((HUGS))) I hope your cycle gets back to "normal" and you see your BFP soon.

Thanks for your reply. I haven't had any stress or illness- out of the ordinary anyway! I was thinking of charting these next few cycles, too. I guess it may have just been a fluke. I'll give it a few days and see if the bleeding starts again.

Wait a minute!.. You said "starts again"... as in.. The bleeding didn't stay??

Was it just for a few hours? a few minutes? a one-time trip to the toilet??

Does af usually do that? (has it done that in the past??)

If it's one of the above.. and it usually doesn't do that.. then.. It could be implantation bleeding. You said you think you O'd on a specific cd.. how many dpo (approximately) would that make you now?

And.. if you're at least 12dpo.. then you could test. 12 dpo is about the earliest recommended testing day.

Either way.. GOOD LUCK!!
