My husband and I were using ovulation test kits the last day of my period was the 8th of Jan test came up positive on the 9th for my LH surge... We had sex tht day and for the followiing 3 days. on the 17th i noticed light bleeding when i wiped and it lasted a day and tht was it, Well on the 20th or the 21st we had intercourse again and i started bleeding like a nomal period.. No cramping or anything. But my breast ache and im tired alot. Today is the 24th and im still bleeding but its not heavy like it was after sex but its turning brown more than the bright read it was when i began.. So am i miscarrying or could i just be having implantation bleeding. Not due for my period til feb. 3 so im confused.. Plz someone help!!! Thanks in advance

Hi blackmoon!

Thank you for your post!

About 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage and only a doctor can confirm a miscarriage so we cannot answer if you are miscarrying or not.

Implantation bleeding is generally just light pink or brown spots, not anything close to looking like a period but it does sound like you perhaps have your period early for some reason.

You can take an early pregnancy test in about a week to 10 days but until then, you will just have to wait it out as it's far too early to know what may be happening.
