    Default Period Tracker Advice Please

    Hey, those using period diaries/trackers/apps etc, can I get your opinions?

    This month, I began spotting at 7dpo (or CD22) and spotted for 9 days (started as staining and there 3 days where it was like a light period - never warranting a liner, though) until the day my period was due, when it just stopped altogether (and now getting something similar to ewcm).

    I have done an Internet cheapy hpt at 8dpo, 10dpo and on the day AF was due. All
    So should I say my period started early at cd22 or do I say my period is 2 days late and keep waiting? Just don't want to muck it up, as it averaged out the length of your cycle to predict fertile days...

    Thanks friendly hubbers!

    How long are your cycles usually?

    When you say 7dpo are you sure you ovulated 7 days prior?

    Also if it was implantation bleeding, it seemed to go on for too long. Perhaps you just had a shorter and lighter cycle and it was AF?

    Wait another week or so and test both ovulation and hpt.

    Additionally, I used similar trackers when TTC and I would never trust the ovulation part as it just guesses really.

    I'm not positive, no... It was based on the two previous months where I used opk's to track it, but I was away from home this month, so it's based on 'average' and on cm... But no, I can't be sure. I didn't think it could be an implantation bleed as it went for so long...

    I also meant to say, when I tested on the day my period was due, I was having ewcm (but a little more 'watery' so I did an OPK too, and it was negative. It looked how it looks normally in the early days of my cycle...).

    Curiouser and curiouser.. Hope it sorts itself out soon.
