Light spotting before period is supposed to be due - help. :(
« on: February 18, 2014, 05:59:04 AM »
I think I have a problem. :( I've made too many posts on this forum!! But here's another one...

When I came back from work last night, I went to the bathroom to pee and when I wiped, I noticed that there was light pink spotting on the toilet tissue. I automatically assumed, "Oh, yay, I'm finally on my period!". Didn't really put too much thought into it, browsed the internet and got ready for bed.

It's now morning, and about 30 minutes ago I went to the bathroom. When I was done, I realised that I still wasn't on my period. It was safe to assume that I was spotting. My anxiety has now kicked in about this symptom and I'm increasingly scared that it could now be cervical cancer....

I thought I was on my period because I'm actually supposed to be on it right now. This is the time in my cycle that it should happen. Should I be worried?

Sometimes I would get spotting around 24h before my period actually begins. I would wait a day and see. I'm sure your period will be with you soon. :)

That has happened to me before, too.  I would spot lightly for several days before my period actually arrived.  I'm sure everything is fine. :)

Thanks for your replies, ladies! :)

Coming back from work again (10pm) and I checked to see if I was bleeding... I was and now it's a dark red/brown colour. I think it's finally picking up now and I'm finally on my period! Let's hope it stays that way until I wake up tomorrow morning for a pee!


Thanks again. <3

Sometimes I get a lot of spotting before my period, sometimes I don't. It's perfectly normal. Many things can affect your period: Age, exercise, stress and hormones.

Spotting 1-2 days before is normal even if it's never happened before.

I had this last night. I am not due to start until around Saturday. However this is pretty normal and something as simple as stress can start the spotting. It's pretty common and not unheard of.
