Implantation Bleeding or Evil AF?

BF and I have been trying to conceive since October of last year. I had a setback from Oct-Jan due to a cyst and not getting my periods, but the cyst went away and AF came back in her full glory in Jan and February lasting her usual 3-4 days...Yay me!

However, the witch decided to through me a curveball this month. Instead of my usual period starting around the 19th, AF decided to make her visit 3 DAYS EARLY and she only stayed around for 24 HOURS. The flow was very light and I had weird cramping sensations on my right side. Now Bf and I did BD on February 22-23 (a few days after my period ended), March 8-9 and again March 12-13, but I dont think I am pregnant because all of the ovulation charts says that my ovulation day would have been March 4 or 5 (We had sex March 8-9 so he would have missed it by a few days)......Today, I am still have some slight cramping on my right side...

It was here Friday night and was gone by Saturday evening! I only had to use one tampon (the regular light when I usually use the super plus because my regular flow is HEAVY)! So I dont know and I really dont wanna get my hopes up since I have not had any other symptoms! I dont think it would have been the correct timeframe for me to have conceive...Here are the dates:

2/19-2/22..AF comes for a visit and leaves

2/23-2/24...BD with BF

3/1-3/5...According to O calendars, these are the days I was most fertile and ovulated.

3/8-3/9...BD with BF

3/12-13..BD with BF

3/16-3/17...AF or whatever came early and stayed for 24 hours before leaving...

I dont know what to think...

Hi Anon,

The only way to confirm pregnancy, is having a pregnancy test at home or at the doctor's office.

Best of luck,

I am scared to do so. I have been having cramps like I am coming on my period again and when I've been having this lotiony white and creamy discharge now ( I do not have any STD's). I dont want to get my hopes up. I am 35. Do you think its more closely related a cyst perhaps or pregnancy? I dont want to be let down if its not a baby.

Hi babiegurl35,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  You might have been on your fertile days.  Not everyone is the same. A women usually ovulates on day 11-21 of a cycle. You might want to take a home pregnancy test or see your OBGYN in order to confirm if indeed you are pregnant.

Here is link that might be helpful
