Thanks for that Kazza.
I've got IBS-C so am constipated most of the time, so your theory may just be correct!
I'm going to temp & do OPK'S and go from there...hopefully I'll fall pregnant over the next couple of months & I was freaking out for nothing! Here's hoping!!!

I have had spotting for 4 days before AF really kicks in for the last 2 cycles, it sounds very similar to what you have described.
I actually have stage IV Endo and only found out I had it when I first came off the pill back in 2009 and my periods started doing funny things. I had also been diagnosed with IBS right from my teenage years and turns out it was the Endo the whole time.
Everyone is different though and your spotting is probably completely normal, I got really bad pains with AF before my pregnancy with DD.
Hopefully you get your BFP soon, fingers crossed.

I did think it maybe endo, but I never really have any pain linked with AF.
I get cramps at other times, usually after eating certain foods, if I'm stressed (this more than anything) and if I wear pants with even a remotely tight waistband.
I actually think my IBS came about due to stress. I never had it before, then had a really crappy time at work and the symptoms started. I can pretty much guarantee that if I get stressed out, I'll get cramps.
Is painful AF a given with endo?

Yeah generally painful periods are a classic sign, maybe still worth getting checked out by a Dr if you are worried. I got a lot of irregular bleeding at random times as well.
IBS is definitely made worse by stress, best thing I was ever told was to go on a long walk each day and just have time to think over everything that was bothering me. The walking at the same time helps. My IBS symptoms have stopped now, for years I used to get terrible cramps (not AF related) that would last for hours.

Because today (9th May) there's barely a flow at all, no full tampons just a bit of blood & some brown discharge. All feels a bit dry too (sorry for tmi).
So yep, really bizarre period this cycle. I've had the spotting before, but not a one day AF!
Off to see my Dr tonight

Been to the Doc. She agreed a 1 day periods a bit strange.
So blood test tomorrow to check B-HCG
If negative, we'll be doing a CD21 Progesterone blood test.
Prefer it to be BFP though!!

I was thinking hmm maybe pregnant? Have you done an at home test?
10-05-2013 07:18 #19
Yep. This morning & BFN.
More pink discharging spotting again today! Seriously body! What ARE you doing?!

Blood test = BFN. So on to progesterone level blood tests in a couple of weeks!
