Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy?

    Hi everybody!

    Let’s see if anyone is able to help me hehehe!

    Firstly, I’m a 20-year-old girl that engaged into sexual intercourse with her boyfriend this month on 5 days in a row last month. The thing is my period was about to start on the 3-4 days after I had sex during those days I said. It came, but it wasn’t as usually, I mean… Since I’m 11 years old, I have regular, heavy periods each month. But this time it was like a brown discharge, more spotting rather than bleeding.

    So you have an idea, it lasted just 2 days and I used only two tampons per day… and I used to need more than 5 per day…

    Could this mean I’m pregnant? Clear up my questions please!

    If you had safe sex and have been bleeding during various days in a row, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. It must be just your period, but this time different. Periods are not always the same, they can vary depending on several factors such as the stress levels you’ve been through during the last month. However, for your own peace of mind I would suggest you to take a pregnancy test. Don’t forget their accuracy increases if you use your first-morning urine. Good luck!

    To answer your question, let me say that you are not pregnant. You had mentioned that you had sex 3-4 days before you had your period. This implies that you had sex in your infertile window, so it eliminates the possibility of you being pregnant. About the question, whether a woman can bleed after conceiving, the answer is yes. You see during implantation; the fertilized egg will have completed its travel along the fallopian tube. And will want to adhere itself to the lining of the uterus. Normally, implantation will happen 6-12 days after ovulation. So a woman may experience implantation bleeding where small amounts of spotting may occur because the embryo has implanted itself into the lining of the uterus. The bleeding may occur shortly before the date you expect to have your menstrual period. This may sometimes confuse women who may think that they have had their periods. However, this bleeding will tend to be lighter and will present itself a week before the menstrual period date. So in your case, those are just your normal period, and so you should not worry about anything.
