Hello krissy2012,

This does not sound like implantation bleeding. Implantation bleeding occurs about a few days or a week before the scheduled time of a woman's menstrual period. It usually appears like a few spots of brown blood and lasts for less than a whole day.

You had intercourse on November 17, which was at the end of your period. It was too early for you to ovulate. You become pregnant when you have unprotected sex during ovulation. A mature egg must be released and be fertilized by sperm for conception or pregnancy to happen.

You can wait and see what happens. If you get a period in December, you are not pregnant. If your December period is delayed beyond one week, you can test for pregnancy.

How old are you? Can you purchase a home pregnancy test for yourself?
Is there a problem with your father knowing that your mother is buying a test for you? If you are pregnant, he will find out.

Thank you for ur reponse! I actually started bleeding a lil more so it might just be my period again. Me & my father have never had a good bond between us & I wouldn't want to know at first but eventually tell him cause he is my dad & I love him. I'm 21 yrs old. I'm gonna wait & see what happens in dec I knew it was to early but i was just checking incase. Thank you for the info!
