Implantation Bleeding or Anovulatory Cycle?
I just started the act of physical intimacy a couple of months ago at the age of 27. So everything is fairly new to me and I just need clarity.
I'm irregular to begin with, I had my period on the 13th of May and then On the 28th of May, I had sex for the 3rd time and it was protected (meaning he used a condom and ejaculated outside of me, condom didn't break and nothing oozed out of it so everything was caught by the condom and I witnessed the whole thing). I am in no birth control at all. Now, my period was supposed to be on the 10th of June and I got a very light discharge on the 9th of June. The spotting was a combination of red and brown discharge/blood. It was very light that I only changed my pad once a day (I usually have a very heavy flow).
I read a few articles that spun me into a whirlwind of paranoia--Implantation bleeding. I have none of the pregnancy symptoms but still, I took a home pregnancy test and got a NEGATIVE result. I am still freaking out though. Here are my questions:
1. Could my "period" be implantation bleeding or is it anovulatory cycle?
2. I am pretty stressed so could that affect my period?
3. Was it implantation bleeding or was that my period?
4. Lastly, what are my chances of being pregnant?
--again, typing this feels silly, but as I mentioned, everything is VERY new to me 😅
Thank you in advance and I appreciate any advise, recommendation and opinion you may have!
The answer to your second question is yes you can miss your period if your stressed as it happened to me two or three months ago
Thank you, Jordan. I guess I'll just have to wait till my next period comes along to know for sure. 😅
Hii! No there's 0% chance that you are pregnant The test was negative and He used a condom you should be fine I was always worried like you too but then u get used to that you are fine :) Stress can make your period to be late u can take another pregnancy test if u want but Im positive you have abdominal nothing to worry about if the condom was in good condition ✨
Hi Jordan, whew. That helped a LOT. Thank you. I took two more tests, one last night and another when I woke up today in which both gave me a NEGATIVE result. (As expected of course) I was just quite concerned reading about the implantation bleeding articles online. And I forgot to add that the brown period that I had on the 9th of May lasted for about 6days.
But anyway, thank you for your feedback, hearing this helped calmed me down 😊
*sorry, JOCELYN 😊 (typed in the wrong name 😜✌🏼
Sorry just another question, does anyone have an inkling on what caused this brown period to be? Could it be my body's response to the changes it experienced? 😅
Well I do a lot of research because I used to freak out a lot when I started having Sex lol But The brown discharge is totally normal since is old blood leaving your body!😃
Thank you Jocelyn! Nice to know that I'm not the only one who's going through this freak-out-paranoia stage 😅 thank you SO much for your assurance!
And I did a ton of research as well, however, it just made me more anxious cause "implantation bleeding" keeps popping up 😜
But it's good to know that eventually, this freak out stage fades away. How long did it take for you to get used to it?
Tbh I freak out still lol but from my own experiences im telling you. im almost 19 year old And I just don't wanna get pregnant right now! 😂 but when is your period due? :)
But you will get use to it with the time if he's a nice guy how old are you?(:
Ohmmy. Now I'm a bit embarrassed on how little I know. I'm 27 😅
My period was due on the 10th of June and I got my "brown period" on the 9th which lasted for 6days. Super light flow as compared to what I usually have.
Then You are fine If I was 27 already wouldn't worry lol Whatever's has to happen but if you don't wanna get pregnant you should take pills :) if u still kinda nervous u should take a pregnancy test but you are 100% good😄
I already took 4 pregnancy tests, and all came out NEGATIVE. So, yeah, I'm good. I'm just new to the whole sex thing as I just lost my virginity a couple of months ago 😅
Oh that's why lol I fee you me too!
But it was negative so you have no worries :)
Haha! Yeah, that's how new this whole experience is for me 😅 and yes, I feel much more comfortable now compared to the past few days, thank you. 😘
Did you get your period in the end ?
Hi Jordan, my last period was the light flow that I had from the 9th of June until the 14th(6days). I took a total of 4 pregnancy tests but it all turned out NEGATIVE. So, I'm pretty much convinced that I'm not. Also, I had vaginal discharge a few days ago which according to my research was a sign that I was fertile and ovulating 😊 So, I'm pretty sure I'm not. Plus, I've been having cramps today, so I think I should have my next period soon. Thank you for your concern
And I'm officially on my period today 😊
