I thought I had implantation bleeding....

So I had unprotected sex, I was not planning on this happening or hopeful of conceiving by any means. Of course I worried. But I waited...after about 10 (?) days I started to have tiny brown spots on toilet paper when I wiped (this happened sporadically for three days) - so I looked that up online. All the responses I found seemed to biased towards women who are actively trying to conceive. . .anyways, I learnt that it was potentially implantation bleeding. Of course around the same time I noticed a few other things like an increased sense of smell, minor cramping (I only generally cramp during my periods), fatigue and a seemingly constant urge to pee. So I figured all in all that one drunken night had indeed created a pregnancy but was still waiting.

Yesterday morning I had tiny red dots when I wiped - seriously little dots, like someone had gently touched a red pen to the paper - strange, and not something I have ever noticed before. Again, potentially implantation. . .but, weird?! Then last night I noticed the pink spotting...again...weird. Do people ever experience three colours of implantation bleeding?
This morning what appears to be my period has arrived. But I have been reading way too much online to be convinced that this is indeed my period. And if it is. . .is something else going on? What other medical concerns could create spotting similar to what I've experienced? I fully intend on visiting my doctor (finally) but would like some advice in the meantime if possible. . .

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Spotting is generally due to hormonal fluctuations. Unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy. Instead of worryings, a test will let you know whether you are pregnant or not if you are within a few days of your period.
