    we are ttc

    Hey please can someone help us out? DH and i have ben ttc for 3 months and this time I’m experiencing rare symptoms, never had them before with my periods so i guess this time i’m getting a bfp 😀
    the thing is, i’m very confused with the implantation bleeding thing… how does it look actually? is it red, brown, pink or what? i’ve had a strange orange/pinkish spotting but i’m not sure cause i usually have a brownish spotting 1 or 2 days before my actual menses… please help us! we’re very happy but scared at the same time…

    Hello we are ttc,

    First of all, it should be clear that implantation bleeding doesn’t happen in all cases. Some women who get pregnant doesn’t experience this early implantation symptom, and it doesn’t mean that something is wrong. On the other hand, amongst those who experience a spotting or light bleeding, the color is variable, but it commonly looks brownish or pinkish on a pad or toilet paper. It’s never bright red. If you experience a bright red bleeding, I’m afraid that it’s likely to be your menstrual period.

    I hope this helps,
