Hi Rosa thanks for your speedy response, I have been having sex off and on for the last month as trying but was unsure when I ovulated as I got the mucus on the 17th I ensured I had sex on this day. I guess I have a long way till my period comes but was hoping was implantation bleeding as nenver had this before.

Thanks x

Hi Lids,

I know-- the waiting game is rough. Implantation Bleeding (or spotting) usually occurs a week before your period is due, so ti would still be too early for that.

Good luck!

Hi Anon,

If you had sex yesterday then it is still way too early to have any symptoms of pregnancy. Unfortunately, the cramps that you are experiencing could be due to the actual act of sex-- sometimes during sex you can have air introduced inside and that can cause cramping. The actual process of pregnancy takes about a week so you wouldn't feel any actual pregnancy symptoms until you were about two weeks pregnant--and those would be very early symptoms.

Please be patient and wait until you have a missed/late period to assume that you may be pregnant.

Best Wishes,
