Help! hpt & inplantation bleeding ques.

I believe I may have had implantation bleeding. {I had it with my last preg, which ended in m/c.) I did a hpt 2 days later & it was neg. I am 26 days into my cycle. My cycle runs anywhere from 23 - 28 days. The spotting occured on the 24th day of my cycle. I have not gotten my period yet, & the spotting lasted 1 day. I thought I was getting my period at the time I started spotting, but then it just completely went away. Was it possibly to soon for a hpt to be positive? How soon after implantation bleeding will a hpt turn up positive? I am 40 yrs old & have never missed a period, except when I was pregnant. Could it just be signs of pre-menepause Or could I be pregnant? I'm not having any other signs of preg. Please help! Desperatly hoping to be pregnant!!!!!!

I do know Early Response makes a home pregnancy test that you can do at home 4 days prior to your period...worth a shot. I'll be picking one up today in fact. Of course, the closer to the actual date of your period the higher percentage of accuracy in the reading. I am counting on it as well this month...as I have had spotting 19 days into my 28 day cycle (which my periods are have been like clock work so this is out of the norm for me)...and continue to spot speratically since but not enough to wear a pad...it appears only on a tissue. Sorry...TMI. So I am hoping as well it is implantation bleeding. Not sure how long it is to last. It is light. AF isn't to arrive until the 9th. So I'm with you...desperately trying to conceive as well. Good luck. Let me know how you make out. Baby Dust everywhere!!!

Hi,

Yes it is very possible that was implantation spotting. You HPT was really pretty early so could very well have been wrong. I would take it again in 3-4 days. We will pray that it is a positive for you!!!!
