  • Was it a cycle or not?

    Hi,
    Okay. So two weeks ago I was waiting on my period to start, it was 3 days late. Then it started but it was very light... lasted 2 days and spotted for half a day. I had no symptoms no cramps nothing. I always get sore breasts, nausea and bad cramps... but this time nothing... just light bleeding.
    Hubby and I had sex only twice the month before and he pulled each time (baby would be a blessing but we arent actively trying).
    Well now im on CD 16 and yesterday I felt very queasy late morning through the afternoon. Today same thing, though this time I got light headed after I ate lunch and now I have had a pretty bad headache for almost 3 hours. Im drinking tea now to see if it will help (at work without access to advil)
    So basically, could that have been "implantation bleeding" and not a period? And then... what would suddenly cause me to get all queasy and stuff.
    I'm 23, no children yet, and healthy.
    Any ideas? Please respond I would really like feedback.

  • How long are you cycles?

    I would definitely say that you did have one, you bled, whether for 1 day or 10... So, IMO, you had a period.

    Do you ever have ovulation symptoms? Depending on cycle length, you could be ovulating, maybe you hadn't had symptoms before, but for some reason you are this cycle...

    • They are 29 days... usually right on time every time. Normally 4 days with 3 days of moderate to heavy flow. I've never had ovulation symptoms before. What really made me think, was I didnt have not one cramp. That really puzzles me.

        • I can't give you a definite answer - some times if i've been tired or over worked etc that can be enough to make my period late. Also on the other hand my side effects/symptoms aren't the same every time (yup what a pain!)

          I guess you can take a test in case. Either that or wait till next month and see what happens and just keep note.
