Dear Infertile Abby,

I have a finger issue.

I don’t know if it’s just me or if this happens to all infertiles, but when I’m expecting a period or hoping for a positive, I wipe the toilet paper and sometimes see a light pink color. However, when I look closer, I realize that it’s not a pink color but sadly just my finger seen through the wet toilet paper. The paper somehow resembles a light pink bleeding but the moment I remove the finger, the TP is white again. Does this happen to others as well and am I normal?

Sincerely, Manisha, a pink fingered woman in the city

Dear Pink Finger Manisha,

You are not alone, and yes, you are somewhat completely normal. Every hour, thousands of infertiles suffer from “my-finger-is-making-the-toilet-paper-pink” syndrome. I also suffer from this syndrome when my thumb and baby finger got caught underneath the wet,white toilet paper. It was a horrific experience and my heart goes out to you. My advice is to paint your finger so you will never again mistake the pinkness for bleeding again. A nice purple or green shade will look great! Also if you do find yourself seeing pink, just give yourself the finger and you’ll relax knowing that the toilet paper is still nice and white.

I hope this helped you and thousands of other women.

Sincerely, Infertile Abby

    I experience spotting whenever I ovulate. But still, negative on pregnancy. We are struggling to conceive for 5 years with 3 miscarriages. All because of blighted ovum. My OB told me that I’m in the borderline of having APAS.
    Can you please help me to research about blighted ovum. I don’t know what is the reason why do I experience this 3 times already…It will be a great help for me..Thanks and God Bless!!!!

    Following my exploration, millions of people in the world get the loan at well known banks. Hence, there’s great possibilities to get a term loan in every country.

    I have to admit that this doesn’t happen to me because my fingers aren’t pink anyway! I’m African-American. Yay!
