I am 26. Im not on birth control. My husband and I are trying to conceive. I started spotting about a week before my actual period was due, at first I was excited, thinking it was implantation bleeding, but as the days went on I continued to cramp (not normal for me) and the blood turned from a Pale pink/brown and then by day 4 it was almost black..followed by continuous cramping but only in my lower abdomen where i would normally cramp for a period.
Today is the 6th day of my period,( which normally only lasts for 3-4days. I had stopped bleeding until this afternoon after my husband and I had intercourse. There was an actually fair amount of bright red blood and then cramping again. I normally only cramp for the first day of my period. And it honestly feels like i might be ovulating...when I stretch or press on my abdomen its slightly painful.
Having all this bleeding and pain has caused me to think perhaps I am having a miscarriage..I cannot make an appointment with my Doctor for another week. So I decided to ask here on WebMD. Am I having a miscarriage? Or should I just wait a little while to see what might come of all this?View Thread
