hi there,
im a bit confused at the moment.
me and my partner are actively trying for our second child.
i am 30 years old and for the first time in my life my 'period' has come over 1 week early and is there but a lot lighter than usual. however i usually bleed for approx 5days this one is ending after only 1 and a half days. someone mentioned to me about an implantation bleed.
i have never really heard of this and not really sure if this is what i might be experiencing.
does anyone have any ideas or advice please

There is a good chance it could be implantation bleeding, also called spotting. It's when the egg attaches to the side of your uterus and causes some of the blood build up to release. If you take a pregnancy test after the time your normal period is suppose to start and you're not pregnant, it could be small tears in the skin caused from the friction of sex. My partner and I are going through the same thing and I have had whole days of light bleeding and thought I was pregnant, only to not be. My doctor said the blood was cause from friction inside the vagina irritating my fibroid's and causing them to bleed. She said it was normal for women my age, 35, trying to have another child. I hope this helps. Good luck.

I would wait until your period was actually due. If it doesn't happen, try a pregnancy test. If the test is negative, wait a few more days or a week. Sometimes those tests don't always work right away since they depend on a hormone in your body to be there. If after that week if the pregnancy test is still negative and you still haven't started your period, it would probably be a good idea to go to the doctor. But unless your periods have been irregular in the past, if you don't have one when you are suppose to, there is a good chance you are pregnant.

very helpful thank you heather. i hope it happens for you soon. i always thought spotting was tiny amount of spots.....what i have had was a very light period but for 1 and half days instead of approx 5. really trying not to get my hopes up either. but am interested in others experiences with this. thank you so much x
