Well I've been reading a lot on this implantation bleeding & it seems like I may be experiencing it. Anyways, let me introduce myself, my name is Dawn & i'm sixteen years old. My last period was February 1st & I normally have a regular 28 day cycle, so I'm technically not due til the 29th of this month. Well on the 23rd of this month, exactly a week before I was normally supposed to start, I starting bleeding, not heavy like usual & it's not a red as it usually is, actually it's not even red, at all. Between the 11th & 21st of this month, everyday me & my boyfriend had unprotected sex, more than one time a day too. I know for a fact he only came in me once but he had a big problem with pre-cum. & I had to of been ovulated during that time. Anyways, this so-called-period that I'm experiencing right now is definitely a lot lighter. How to explain it though? It started off like a normal period, then quickly it got really light. I went from a bright red, to a pink now it's just a brown spotting & this is my third day of my "period" & normally it last five days. I used one tampon & one pad [neither had barely anything on it] so far, & usually I'm going through atleast two-three tampons a day. I mean I'm not even using one now, I only see the brownish/red blood when I wipe. I've had a period every month since I was thirteen years old & never once has this happend. & I did notice this bleeding I'm experiencing comes & goes. I can't say my nipples are sore or my boobs hurt cause they don't which is another unusual thing for me, usually during my period I have sore breasts. I have been peeing alot lately though, - & I just went pee for the second time in a hour, & when I wiped the blood was very VERY faint, couldn't even tell it was there, barely. I've been eating alot lately too, these past couple of days. & another thing when I have my period I have a lot of clots, this time I've seen maybe one clot. That's it. & my cramps I've been experiencing don't even feel like menstrual cramps at all. Now that I think about it I have felt ALITTLE nauseated & feel more tired than usual. I've been up for four hours & feel tired as hell right now, just can't bring myself to sleep. Been burping alot too, & I believe I forgot to mention I've never been on birth-control. I'm just really confused. & by the way, now when I wipe I have nothing. This just isn't normal for me. If anyone can help, please feel free to reply to my post.

It is possible that you are pregnant. Precum can always get you pregnant whether he goes all the way or pulls out or not. The only way you will know for sure is if you test when you've missed your period. It's not unusual for some fluctuations to happen in periods even if they are regular. Sometimes stress can throw off the most regular person.

All your other symptoms could be signs of pregnancy, but could also be signs of other things, so you can't "tell" that you are pregnant because you are feeling hungrier or have sore breasts.

Take a test if you've missed your period when that time rolls around. It's the only way you can be sure.

implantation bleeding
Hi, I'm experiencing the same problems as you girls are. 2weeks ago..there was conception, now...during this week I think I'm experiencing implantation bleeding. When I first saw the blood, I was sure it was my period. But after I've read around online, it might just be IB. I'M experiencing all the early pregnancy symptoms. Except vomiting, it just won't come up, instead it's like a lump in the back of my throat. But anyways, this is the second day I've been bleeding and it'd not like my usual period. Its much lighter but the blood is a bright red.
