Period or no? I'm so confused! [Maybe TMI]

Ahh, I'm going out of my mind, I swear! If you've seen any of my previous posts, you know that I haven't had a period since August 11th, 2008. That was the first and only period I had since my son was born two months earlier in June. I wasn't breast feeding and I wasn't under a ton of stress. I would say -- about 3 times since then, I've had occassions where I'll wipe and it'll be like watered down blood, kina .. like kinda mucousy but not at the same time -- but only when I wiped, nothing was EVER in my underwear or anything like that, not even the faintest trace of it. The 3 times that it's happened, it has left me feeling like okay maybe my period has started or will be starting soon. Ususally I'll be kinda crampy on the days that it happens, which normally only happens to me on the very first day of my period. These days are so random, I just don't get it. It happened again yesterday, but still no period. I'm sooo confused! I have mentioned this to my doctor 2 times already and she can't seem to figure out why my body is acting this way.

Every once in awhile, my friend will mention that maybe I'm pregnant. Okay, that's possible because we don't really use protection or BC of any sort. I just don't understand! I've taken close to a dozen pregnancy tests since September. I've had tests done at the doctor and I've had an ultrasound done as well just to make sure and nothing else points to pregnancy.

I just can't think of anything that would impact me like this. Anyone else have any idea because I'm stumped.

I would definitely be looking for a new doctor that could give me some answers if I were you! Have they done any tests (other than pregnancy)?

A woman is like a tea bag~you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.

I think that somehow, we learn who we really are and then live with that decision.

Girl, I feel you on that one! I'm confused as hell about my body too!

I got my period when my daughter was 2 months old, June 16th, 2008. Had my period, June, July, August, September, October, and then bam, no period November, December or this month. I had an IUD put in on August 27th, but there's no reason for my period to suddenly stop.

My Midwife told me to buy a pregnancy test. I'm gonna do that this morning. Till then, i've been going nuts.

We can just float in our confused boat! LOL

Good luck girl, sorry I have no advice. Hope you figure it out. A women's body does crazy things after a baby is born. It's never ever the same.
