UTI or implantation bleeding???

Hello ladies!! Feels like I am going crazy and I'm not really getting answers anywhere else so I figured I give this a try. This past weekend (3/10 - 11) I noticed I was emotionally down. Figured it was just one of those days, maybe the rainy weather. I was also "off" - feeling dizzy and nauseous. My urine also had a very strong smell. Monday morning (3/9) I ended up actually throwing up and was still feeling unlike myself. All Monday I was exhausted and in the evening noticed blood in my underwear, darker in color (similar to dried blood) and I was extremely sensitive to smell. I even had headaches. Tried to eat Korean food, which I LOVE and as soon as I smelled my husband's kimchi I could not take it. Tuesday the spotting stopped but later on, I noticed a lighter version of the darker blood when I wiped. That's when I went crazy on Google and learned that many of these symptoms coincide with implantation bleeding. We had unprotected sex the week before, twice (approx. 3/7 and 3/9). My issue is that the dates of my last cycle do not match up. Last day of my last period was 3/3. I ended up taking a pregnancy test at home on Wed. 3/14 which was negative. Figured I jumped the gun but I just had to take it. Since Wed. (3/11) I still haven't been feeling like myself, if that makes sense. I forgot to mention I am a Type 1 Diabetic. I wear a continuous glucose monitor so I am always aware of my blood sugars and all of my readings were pretty normal, no highs. Today (3/16) I ended up seeing my doctor and took a pregnancy test at the office but it was a urine one and that also came back negative. Now he is telling me I may have a UTI. I do not have a burning sensation when I urinate. I do not go more frequently, I still have a pretty strong stream when I do go and I do not have any lower back (kidney) pain. I really find it hard to believe honestly and I know my body. Plus I have never had one in my life. I'm 34. My next period is scheduled to come 4/6. Still waiting for the urinalysis results to see but I have my doubts. I thought to have a UTI was one of those things you KNOW you have given the sometimes painful symptoms. What do you guys think?

Implantation bleeding is a common cause of bleeding in early pregnancy . It occurs at the time of implantation of the fertilized ovum. The bleeding is seen about 10-14 after conception which is roughly at around the same day as the next due periods. The bleeding is usually not accompanied by any pain or discomfort. It lasts for only about 2-3 days and decreases spontaneously. The problem with implantation bleeding is that many women confuse this with a normal period. Only about 10% of all pregnant women experience implantation bleeding. This blood trickles out of the uterus to the vagina and mixes with normal vaginal discharge. This may be seen as pink or brown stained vaginal discharge. The color of blood changes to brown if bleeding had occurred a few days earlier and the blood undergoes denaturation. The bleeding is normally so slight that it is not noticed or ignored by most women. Many women confuse this implantation bleeding for a normal period.

See a doctor if it is a UTI. Which is sounds very much like one. Sometimes if uti go untreated without antibiotics to get rid of it. The bacteria can still linger in the body for 6 weeks. Despite not having symptoms of it anymore and you think it is "alright." so either way, get your urine speciman checked. You don't want it to spread to your kidneys either if it is a uti. You need to get to a Dr. It definitely sounds like a UTI. II've had dozens over my lifetime so far. If you don't get it taken care of soon enough it can turn into a kidney infection. Which is very serious and very painful. I've had 2 and had to be hospitalized. But mine was treated in Bio tex clinic. So don't take chances. See a Dr. If you can't get in soon enough, go to a clinic. Most take walk-ins. Good luck!
