Implantation or period?

So after having unprotected sex 12 days ago, I was worried that I could be pregnant; my period was supposed to start 7 days ago. This morning I was walking, and I felt something wet, I figured it was discharge, but I went to the bathroom and saw that I bled through my pants. It wasn't a lot, but enough to go through my pants. Thinking it was my period, I put in a tampon and went on through the day. At around lunch (didn't eat) I was feeling extremely hot and sweaty, I was crouching on the floor from cramps, and I felt a bit nauseous. After about an hour I felt better. When I got home, I took out my tampon, and noticed that it was not completely soaked, but still had blood. And I also didn't have any blood in the toilet after peeing like I usually do. I still am feeling slight cramps, but no bleeding. Do you think it was implantation or AF?

Hello Madeline Rowe,

Since you had unprotected sex and your period is late by seven days, I suggest you take a home pregnancy test. Read and follow the directions carefully. If the results are positive, consult your gynecologist and mention the cramps, nausea and bleeding.
