Implantation Bleeding with Irregular Periods? El-Ee TTC since Feb 2008; West Virginia 26 posts

Wow. I haven't been here in forever! I'm so sorry I left everyone. Hopefully those who are TTC have and thos who are pregnant are healthy!
On another note: I have a question.
My fiance and I have been TTC for a while now -- seems like forever to me. First, let me give you the background.
I have VERY irregular periods... Meaning I could go months without one then bleeding very heavily for two weeks the next month.
But I haven't had a period for a while now... Not even my usual signs such as very painful cramping, extremly irritated, etc...
Then, I started getting diharea (sp?). I pushed this off as a bug, but it got to where no matter what I ate I had to run to the bathroom.
Then, all of a sudden, it stopped.
I'm always tired and nausious (sp?), but I blame that on keeping up with school, our apartment, our sick kitty (who is like a child to us), and my fiance.
Then, randomly, when I wipped today I saw a pinkish tint on the toilet paper. I only had mild cramping -- so mild, in fact, I wouldn't even consider it cramping. It hasn't gotten any heavier and continues to only show up with a wipe.
I was wondering -- this is probablly me being hopeful -- if this could be implantation bleeding or if it is too early to say?
If so, when should I take a pregnancy test since I have irregular periods?
If anyone has any advice please, let me know! Thank you so much.

Hmmm... Okay.
So it is a possibility then?
Then when should I test?

I don't exactly have the extra cash to be spending on a pregnancy test if it will most likely be a BFN. I know that sounds horrible, but we can barely put gas in the car because we had to pay on my fiance's hospital bill this week.
Are there any other signs I should be experiencing with implantation bleeding.
Also, the pinkish spotting has stopped for the most part. How long does IB normally last?

Strike that -- I'm still seeing pink when I wipe with very mild cramps, just like yesterday.

Hey I like you was and still am very irregular when I got pregnant with my daughter. I was having periods every 2 months. My DR actually thought I was two weeks further along than I was until my first ultrasound.
My advice would be to find a free clinic. If you are low income and have no insurance they will provide a free test to answer your questions. Implantation bleeding can happen withall oronly some of one womean'spregnancies and the duration of the bleeding is different with them all.
I know that Wal-mart sells a $3-4kit but if you are short on funds I would suggest that you wait at least one week after the bleeding started. Pregnancy hormones really kick in about a week after implantation. The longer you can wait the more likely the test will be accurate because you will have a stronger concentration of the hormones in your system.

OMG I am in the exact situation as you. I have done so many research and trying to find anyone that has the same issue as me. I have very irregular periods and they would be off and on. I never know when I ovulate or even do ovulate. three days ago I was at work and I went to the bathroom and as I wiped I noticed a light pink watery color on the toilet paper but its only when I wipe and as the day went on I started getting light sharp cramps. I thought it was my period coming but to my best knowledge i knew my body to well that it wasn't a period. It only lasted for 5 hours and then it stopped...I don't know if its implantation or anything but I took a pregnancy test today and it was negative. Maybe it was too early to test but yet I'll wait another week and see...
