I had unprotected sex twice Saturday once in the morning and once at night I also forgot to take my birth control that day and haven't taken it since. I know people say that don't discover they are pregnant till like 3 weeks later but I feel like I have symptoms. I was ovulating when I had sex and 'Im scheduled to get my period March 18th. Sunday I didnt feel anything but didnt sleep at all, Monday I had cramps and back pain very tired also. Tuesday when i went to the bathroom when i wiped there were little specks of pink and i had a headache. Wednesday when i wiped it was brown and i was still cramping and a headache. Thursday no cramping but started bleeding, Friday (today) still bleeding no cramping. I bought pregnancy tests but dont want to take them till Its been at least a week. Has anybody every discovered this. I heard it could be implantation bleeding which people mistake for a period sometimes, btw my bleeding went from light to mild to stopping back to light. Please help me.

Hello Anonymous,

One way to differentiate implantation bleeding from menstrual flow is by color and amount.

Implantation bleeding is scanty and pink to brown in color. Flow does not increase. It occurs about six to 12 days following conception. It happens after the fertilized egg has implanted itself in the uterus wall.
Some women experience slight cramping.

Having unprotected intercourse, especially during ovulation, leads to conception.

You have two options. Test with an early response pregnancy test, which can be used as early as five days before the expected start of your period or wait until your period is late by at least seven day and test.

Please keep us updated.
