Basically I am trying for a baby for about 1 & half year now

This answer was rated:

Hi, so basically I am trying for a baby for about 1 & half year now & my period was due on 27th June since that night I have had light bleeding it’s brown/ dark red in colour yesterday it was a pinky/red colour. I don’t have any period cramps which I usually do & this isn’t heavy enough for a period & hasn’t ever happened me before? I still have this bleeding now so this would be my third day with it. I have very mild cramping and wondering would you know what this is? I am on day 35 of my cycle & my cycle usually ranges from 30 - 35 days. Thanks

Hi I have got my blood taking a few months back to check my hormone levels and all was perfect I also went for a transvaginal ultrasound & all was also normal. I never followed up anymore about this, my periods are regular they are every 30-35 days and I have never conceived before.
Ok,were you active this time during your fertile period?
Any nausea, mood swings ,breast tenderness?

I was sexually active around my ovulation time. I don’t have any of those symptoms I just feel emotional which I usually do around this time of my cycle. I’m unsure if this is my period or not but this has never happened me any other month that’s why I am kind of concerned.
Ok.If the period feels different to you in any way,I would recommend to take a pregnancy test. The light bleeding can be a sign of ealry pregnancy.
If it is not pregnancy, it can just be a minor hormonal imbalance. It is not uncommon for women to experience hormonal imbalance once in a while in their life because of day to day stress,dietary or weight changes. Some new medication or supplements.
may also cause hormonal imbalance.
But this is usually temporary!
Let me know if you have any questions please!

If it is bleeding in early pregnancy is that anything I should be worried about?.. also if this is due to hormonal imbalance should I expect to get my period this month??
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
while I have this light bleeding will a pregnancy test still be accurate?
If this is your pregnancy, it is normal because at this time you may experience light bleeding or spotting called implantation bleeding.
If it is hormonal imbalance,this is your period, because with hormonal imbalance you can get much lighter periods or even just spotting, you will not get yout regular period this cycle..
Since you have longer cycles, I would recommend to wait for a couple of days and them take the test.
I hope it helps.

Is it not to late in my cycle to have implantation bleeding? I’m just concerned if this isn’t my period as this is my third day bleeding now.. how long can this go on for? Thanks
You can get implantation bleeding at about the same time as you get your periods. If it is implantation it should not last longer than 3 days.If it continues for 5 to 6 days it is less likely an implantation bleeding, this is probably your period but lighter due to hormonal imbalance.
