Spotting/Progesterone question

So it's been a long time since I've used progesterone. I had pink spotting/brown spotting on Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday morning. I've been taking 200 mg of prometerium twice a day. I thought maybe my period was starting. I had a negative test yesterday morning and this morning. Do you think the spotting was a fluke? I always thought I started my period even when I was on the supplements. So help me out. Help me with the crazies in my head. I'm 12 DPO. Expecting my period to start tomorrow. Anyone with any of these experiences? Help me out ladies! Should I stop the progesterone and see what happens? Test again tomorrow? Wait til Thursday? Call the RE and get a blood test?

 

Thanks,

Cat

Cat-

I'm in  a very similar situation.  I take the prometrium 200mg a day also.  This is my 4th cycle ttc with it.  One of my other ones, I had some spotting about a week before my period was due, and was certain it was implantation bleeding.  Well, my period started on time a week later.  This cycle, I am due to start AF tomorrow or thursday.  I wiped today, and had a small amount of blood.  I was sure AF was starting early, but nothing since.  I even busted out the tampons!  I never had spotting before prometrium, so I know it just screws with me a bit (spotting is usually only once or twice when I wipe though, not 3 days).  I never have to stop taking the pills though.  My period always starts on cue, even while I'm taking them.  I also tested yesterday and today, and both were negative.  So, I wouldn't read into it too much, unless you are late.  Then maybe test again, and if negative, stop the pills?  That's what I would do, but you can also call your dr if you are feeling unsure.  Good luck and KUP!!

Negative test again this morning. Not going to take any progesterone. No spotting. I've always spotted before my period. So it wasn't a surprise. But when it didn't continue or get red or dark. Even with the progesterone I would start spotting through that. I don't ever remember starting a full flow while on it. This spotting was just like my previous pregnancy. It just sooo messes with your head. I just need to give up at some point. It's easy to say but not easy to do. So just continue to wait and see.

Thanks ladies,

Cat
