This morning, the bleeding is a touch heavier and bright red. And I'm still crampy.
I called the clinic. Again. Yes, I'm the pathetic panicking patient who knows full well it could be implantation bleeding, but is still convinced she's having a period. Oh well, figure I should get my money's worth, right?
The nurse said it could be one of two things. It could be implantation. Or it could be my stupid body trying to have a period. She did try to reassure me by saying that plenty of patients call right around this time with the same complaints and 75% of the time there is a positive outcome. She said bright red can still be implantation bleeding. As long as it isn't full flow. She did admit, however, that it is possible to have a period while on progesterone. It isn't common, but it isn't unheard of either.
I was told to make sure I'm hydrated as being dehydrated can cause cramping. That is definitely not my problem with all the vitamin water and water I've been drinking. I just want this to go away. Now. It's kind of funny actually. In all my past cycles I've hoped for some type of early sign of a positive. I always thought implantation bleeding would be the best because all other symptoms can be blamed on the progesterone. Now, I'm just freaked out.
