Hello, everyone. I'm actually really worried right now and any advice would be appreciated.
Basically, I've been pretty constipated lately. My partner and I have been trying to conceive this month for the first time and I'm currently about 9 DPO. I took an early pregnancy test yesterday and today and it showed up negative, and I am kind of assuming it didn't work this month. However, my problem is that three times now, I've seen spotting after a bowel movement. Sorry for the graphic nature, but it tends to happen after I've, um, strained a bit. It's never much … just a drop or two of brownish or pinkish blood. It's very obviously coming from my vagina. I'm obviously really anxious about this, as spotting was pretty rare for me my whole life until 2012. Now, I've had spotting for a day before my period twice, spotting during ovulation once and now this. I've Googled a bit and run across things like polyps, cervical cancer, endometriosis, etc. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? I'm going to wait until my period comes and passes and make an appointment. But for now, it's really terrifying for me, and on top of my worries about not being able to conceive, I'm just very anxious right now. Thanks a lot!
