Weird Spotting...help!

Hello,

I'm new to these message boards so any help & advice is greatly appreciated. My husband and I have been trying to conceive since July 2010 with no luck. I have had many months in which I didn't get my period so I got my hopes up, and the HPT was ALWAYS negative. That has happened a few months now, so I get upset as this process isn't easy. I have 30-35 day

I would first take a pregnancy test just to rule that out. That could be implantation spotting. On the other hand, I have also skipped a cycle every year or so and the following period can be weird. It could be that you had an anovulatory cycle and this is your body's way of resetting.

So, I would say... first step, take hpt. Second step, call your ob/gyn if you don't have a full period. They can run some bloodwork to see where your hormones are and go from there. Sorry you're going through this! :(
