Hello reneehenry30,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community and thank you for reaching out to us for help with your concern.

Are your menstrual cycles regular? Has this ever happened before?
How old are you? Have you ever been diagnosed with an endocrine or hormone imbalance?

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a balance of hormones. Any imbalance or fluctuation cause changes. Please consult your gynecologist, who will be more knowledgeable than I am.

I am 30 and never been diagnosed with nothing this never happens to me before that's why I'm kind of confused about it I don't know if it's implantation bleeding or what,I have a period tracker on my phone and it's usually right meaning my period usually come on when they say it will but this time it's not normal so do you think I can be pregnant and I should just take a test when the bleeding stop or what?

Hello reneehenry30,

Thank you for the added information. It could be implantation bleeding. It would be a good idea to take a home pregnancy test.

And I'm still bleeding since the 20th is it a limit where the bleeding should stop? And if it's implantation bleeding can the blood get darker light when women start they period because now I have dark blood but it's not heavy at all like my period use to be

Hello reneehenry30,

Implantation bleeding is scanty pink or brown vaginal discharge that occurs about 6 to 12 days following conception and goes away on its own in a few days.

Please consult your gynecologist about this abnormal bleeding.
