Brown Blood

I'm so confused. My period was nine days late this month. I took four pregnancy tests, all negative. On the day my "period" finally arrived, most of the blood was brown, and it wasn't very much (not as much as the first day of my normal periods anyway). I only bled for maybe a couple hours, and now I have nothing again. My "period" didn't even last a day. What is going on with my body?

That's a good guess, I didn't think of that. But, would it be brown? Looks like I'll have to Google it. lol.

WhatDoesImplantationBleedingLookLike?

Bleeding due to implantation is characteristically a small volume of pink or brown vaginal discharge. Between 32-35% of women actually experience implantation bleeding as a symptom of pregnancy.

If this bleeding is from implantation, it will be more like spotting rather than a steady flow of blood you would get with your period. So if you have been trying to get pregnant, and it's getting close to your period, you might think that the spotting from implantation is actually from your period. If you have any questions, an early pregancy test will likely be able to tell you within about 9-11 days after ovulation.


Hope this helps some.

Thanks for your help! It sounds pretty similar, except for the fact that from what I've read, implantation bleeding usually happens right before or during your expected period. My period had been overdue for about a week, so it might be too late to be that...?

Thank you! :) I'm getting more hopeful the more that I read about this. At first, I figured it was brown because my period was so late... But, I guess I will find out for sure soon enough! I guess another hint would be if anything else comes out tomorrow. As of right now, I am back to nothing. If that was in fact implantation, how long would it take for me to get a positive test?
