What I thought was my period....

Well I wiped this afternoon, and there was a pinkish discharge on the toilet paper. Then later, a brownish one... I thought I was starting my period, but I haven't started bleeding. Could this mean I could be implanting? If so, how long should I wait to take a PT?

  • How many DPO are you? If it's implantation it takes another 2-4 days to show up on a pregnancy I believe. Good luck!

  • If your period isn't due yet I'd wait until it is to test. If it's time for your period go ahead and test now.

  • Sorry I just read that you are 10DPO if you are pregnant you could get a positive...but I would wait a few days just to be sure.

  • did you too recently have intercourse? If so it could be from that, or it very well could be implantation bleeding...I would wait about a week to take a HPT.
    Good luck

  • Best advice is to wait until you are late to test. Barring that, wait until at least -5 days because that is the time frame most tests claim as their working window.
