I am sexually active, but I'm always safe. So when the time i got all the PMS i thought nothing happened, but it turned out that i was late for four days. I got panicked and i searched the internet. I found a site that said brewed parsley can induce menstruation. So i tried it, and the next day i got my period. But it lasted only for three days compared to the usual 5 days. Is there any possibility that I'm pregnant? How does implantation bleeding look like anyway? Can it look like regular menstruation? Because my short menstruation look like my normal menstruation, a little bit heavy.

One more thing, is it possible that implantation bleeding occur at the same time with regular menstruation? I know my question sounds silly, but i've never been properly informed on these things. Thanks again :)

By safe I mean, we always use condom for protection. There is no way that implantation bleeding will look like a regular period? Because all the sites i've been visiting said alot of things about implantation bleeding. So, I'm a little bit confused. How bout the fact that i got my period shorter than usual? only 3 days from the usual 5.

If you had a three-day period and it was a little bit heavy, you aren't pregnant. Implantation bleeding is different -- it's lighter, and is more like spotting.

It sounds like you just got your period late, to me. The tea from the brewed parsley may have helped, or it might have been that you were going to get your period the next day anyway. Four days is not that late.

You say that you are sexually active, but always safe. What does that mean exactly? What form of birth control are you using?
