I am not sure what the two days of bleeding would be from, but if it was light it may have been breakthrough bleeding or spotting. You can also have a period that is very different from other periods (in this case, much shorter in duration), but since you were not expecting it at that time, it is just speculation.

You can always take a home pregnancy test just to rule out a possible pregnancy, since your period would have been due today, or you can wait a week to see if your regularly-expected period will begin.

I assume you have been trying to conceive for 3 months, is this correct? Have you had three months of "normal" periods?

It is unlikely that you are pregnant if you had sex the day before your period. You said your period was two days...is this typical for you? Was it a heavy or normal flow (more than spotting)?

It takes 10-14 days for a women to become pregnant (from ovulation to implantation), and having sex on September 18th with a period following would indicate that you were not pregnant at the time (any bleeding would also not be related to implantation or miscarriage from sex on Sept 18th).

Was September 19th when you were expecting your period?

Hi annieinnes mcandrew1002,
Thanks for your question and for finding EmpowHER.
I think I am confused by your question. Are you trying to get pregnant? It typically takes a missed period to indicate a pregnancy. Your period can change in how heavy it is, and how long it is. It's good to keep track, so you know where you "should" be in your cycle. If you continue to have periods that concern you, contact your doctor to have them rule out any possible medical conditions. If you are concerned about being pregnant, take a home pregnancy test, or get an appointment with your doctor to have a pregnancy test done.
Good luck and let us know how you are.
