Having a truly odd cycle and not sure if I could be pregnant!!

Hi!

Please can I start by saying thank you for visiting my post. I have never done anything like this before, and I am driving myself mad with all the questions that are running around in my head. I am hoping that someone might be able to shed some light on my odd situation.

So, this is how it is! My husband and I are not ttc at the moment, but we do not use protection, only the pull out method which has worked for many years without a hitch. Now, last month was our 1st year wedding anniversary and as you do, you have a bit of fun, alcohol and the rest. Well......... according to my period calculator, I should have ovulated around 7th August (can not confirm that for sure as like I say, we are not ttc, and I have the calendar purely to track my period) and we had intercourse on 14th August. Now we had a bit of an accident and I assumed that as I am out of my fertility period, I have nothing to worry about. What confirmed it for sure for me was that my period came on 21st August, fairly heavy, and lasted for 4 days. Since then, I have not thought about it at all and have carried on as usual.

Ok, so I am now on day 24 of my cycle and last night before I went to bed, I was feeling very bloated and when I went to the toilet I had a slight brown discharge when I wiped. Today the discharge has continued and is even going a slight pink/red colour. I have NEVER had this happen to me before, is this my period making an early appearance? My calculator says I am not due my period for another 8 days. My periods are always either on time or a few days late (between 30-35 day cycle).

I am so confused. My diet has not changed and I am not stressed in any way, so what is going on? Is it possible that I could be pregnant even though I had a period in August? I would like to state that I have not had intercourse with my husband since 14th August so I really do not understand.

If there is anyone that could shed some light on my predicament, I would be incredibly grateful.

Hi KatD ,

No I haven't tested yet, keep telling myself I'm being silly, it's probably just hormone related. If I test now would it not be too early? Surely I should wait until after my missed period?

Well it sounds like you've had your period. Though it is also possible in your scenario that if you are pg the bleeding you had was pregnancy related. Spotting before AF is quite common, regardless lifestyle etc. So the only way to know at this point will be to test. Let us know how you go!

if you haven't had sex since 14th August then if you were pregnant then it would show up on a test by now but it sound like you've had your periid. I don't think you will be pregnant

Hi All,

Thank you so much for your replies to my post, I really am thrown by this odd change in my cycle. As I said in my first post, I have never had this happen before, I have always been on time or late so this was totally out of the blue for me.

Since my first post yesterday, the flow has become heavier so my conclusion is that it is my period, be it rather light and not as painful as it normally would be, but then I guess this is down to the fact that it is early.

If anything further transpires, I will be sure to update this post.

Thank you again
