It is possible to have implantation bleeding 5-8 days after sex? The 5th day after ovulation I spotted blood, then the 6th it was a brownish pinkish color. Now, 12 days after sex, I'm crampy && get waves of nausea, fatigue, && some headaches.
I've heard it's possible, has anyone else experienced this or anything close? My period isn't for 11 days.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Implantation bleeding usually occurs between 6-12 days after fruitful intercourse/ovulation. The symptoms that you describe could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). You can consider taking urine pregnancy test 18-20 days after ovulation day, or after 7-10 days of missed periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.

Wow, good for you Meggles1976. I would walk too. But the symptoms you've described certainly do coincide with those of pregnancy. Time to retest! Or have you already? I'm curious to know your results! Good luck to you. Smile

I was curious what the chances are of experiencing pregnancy symptoms 8 days after intercourse are? I'm 19 years old, and 8 days ago would be the day I lost my virginity as well. I'm feeling a little more drowsy than normal, and this morning I was nauseated but nothing was surfacing. I'm having very little pains in my lower abdomen, and I'm due for my period anytime from the 23rd-25th of November. I'm not sure if I'm just psyching myself or what, any ideas??

Could this be implantation?
So I thought I started my period but its been really light and has been lasting for 6 days now, I'm never light and always heavy, on the 3rd day I had servere cramping but went away and still only bleeding slightly. It's a dark red/brown and there has been clear mucus at the same time. No clots at all. Could this be a sign of implantation?

i have a late period am i pregnant?
hi, I had sex on the 30/31 of January (my most fertile days). My period is now 3 days late (due on the 9/2/13) and i have light spotting today which ive NEVER had before as my period is always super heavy. i feel fatigued today when i always have energy and i have cramps. I took a test yesterday (11/2/13) and it said negative. was that too early for an accurate because spotting only started today or could i be pregnant?

Hi. I had sex on the 23rd and was due to start my period around the 27th or 28th. It is now the 29th and I'm getting very very faint brownish discharge when I wipe. I got this same type of thing on the 25th, except at one point it was pink.
For more details, the sex was slightly unprotected (I am on birth control, but took it only just before we started having sex), and he pulled out.
I know that it is improbable that I could be pregnant (though I know anything is possible) because I was not ovulating and it was just before my period, but I would really like to know if anybody thinks I am starting to freak out for no reason...

My last period was april 22nd and lasted the normal 7 days. I had unprotected sex on the 3rd of may and he came in me. I have been feeling weird, having headaches, sharp pains, loss of apetite. Today is the 8th and when i got up to go to the bathroom and wipe i noticed brown discharge there was no smell and i am worried cause this isnt normal. I shouldnt be having a period again until the end of this month. Today is the 12 and when i wipe i still notice a lil brown/black diacharge Any advice or comments would be great.

Could I be pregnant???
SO I had my period April 12-16th, then May 4 in the morning I had unprotected sex, he pulled out. An before that I haven't had sex in seriously months.. Well I believe it was May 7th I had dark brown spotting an it lasted maybe 2 days, I don't quite remember but that's it, no regular blood, I thought I was supposed to start my period the 12th of May or around there an it is now the 19th of May an I haven't had my period, I haven't had any cramping to indicate that Im going to start my period like I usually do a couple days before I actually start my period, an my mom an best friend usually start after me an my mom just started an I havent but I've randomly broke out all over which never happens, an I have dark hairs growing around my nipples, I took a test last week but my local family planning said it could be to soon, but could it be possible that I am pregnant?

My period started 8 days early - concerned
Hi, my husband and I are trying to get pregnant and had two negatives. Sad The first day I was fertile, which was July 16 we were intimate. Midnight last night, July 27 we were intimate again, when I went to wash myself after making love, I noticed there was blood on my tissue, it was bright reddish pink, It bleed for a few mins. I thought my period had started 8 days early but when I awoke this morning there was no blood on my pad. I get my period regularly. The first day of my last period was June 29th. I am having minor cramps in my lower abdomen. No other symptoms that would suggest I am pregnant. I would like to know if this an implantation bleeding? Should I be worried? What concerns me is that I had a vaginal bacterial infection during the last week of june and between july 19 - July 22. Please advise.
