Could be implantation bleeding Can I ask why are you having a hysterectomy? I apologize if it's too personal a question.
It's fine, I've been booked in for awhile actually I had a big ovarian cancer scare in feb this year and emergency surgery to remove my left ovary tube and mass along with biopsy of apparently everything else including the unaffected right ovary long story short I had a form of neoplastic ovarian cyst and a left hydro so everything was great afterward til my follow up scan which showed a solid mass in the remaining ovary which was also twice the normal size and a very enlarged and odd patterned uterus thickened and odd endometrium and myometrium and free fluid. anyway i was referred back to gyn/onc who appear to have misplaced my surgical notes that state exactly what had been sent to be biopsied. This all was discovered after I read the biopsy report and asked why there was no comments regarding my right ovary, anyway it was then that we were informed that the only real way to know what is going on would be to do a TAH, which i have managed to put off til late Jan/ early Feb. Well that's some of it anyway.
As for implantation it has crossed my mind I did have bleeding with my daughter 1st pregnancy but that was 12 years ago so I don't remember much about it.
As for the nipples the only way I can describe them is the let down sensation you feel with breast pads in while breast feeding while a baby is crying of that makes sense.
What does TAH stand for? Far out, how negligent! Seriously you went through all of that to have your notes misplaced?! I would be furious. Wow. That's really unacceptable
Yeah it is not good enough. TAH stands for total abdominal hysterectomy.
So I'm still spotting but its nothing like my Af and nipples are still sore. Anyone have any idea if it where to be implantation how long til I could test again?
How many DPO are you and how long have you been spotting for? Like from how many DPO? When did you poas last?
I'm 11dpo today well I think I am and I had 2 tiny pink spots at 7 dpo then nothing til yesterday morning tested 9dpo
I would give it another day and test tomorrow. If it's implantation bleeding then you only really need a few days before it will start to register on a hpt. As a general rule I've noticed most women won't show a bfp until 12 DPO at the earliest. I know there are exceptions to that but usually it's 12dpo
