I have researched what implantation bleeding looks like and the bleeding looked nothing like it it look just looked like a normal period. I think I'm going to wait and see if I get my next period before I take a test

Hi Anon, 

Welcome to EmpowHER! Thanks for your question. You are right to be concerned. Anytime you have unprotected sex, you are at risk of pregnancy. You may have experienced implantation bleeding, which is an early sign of pregnancy. Implantation bleeding is lighter than your normal period. Please visit your doctor for a pregnancy test. A blood test will give you more accurate results than an at-home pregnancy test. 

Best Wishes,
