U could be, but the only way to really find out is to test. That bleeding could be inplantation bleeding. Are you trying to get pregnant?

You could be or you could just be having a lighter than normal period (stress, diet, exercise, even just as you age can affect the amount of flow during your cycle). For most women (those who get implantation spotting and it's not usually the majority), implantation is more spotting than actual bleeding and red flow. All you can do is take a test and see.

Trying to Get Pregnant
Hi I am 29 yrs old (My husband is also 29 yrs) and trying to conceive since 6 months but I still I havnt got any success. I take care of the ovulation day and try to have sex every alternate day during my fertile period. I have a 28 days cycle and feel severe cramps on the first day of mensuration. My husband is very cooperative but I have observed that I almost eject the semen just after having sex. I keep lying for 10 mins and then rush to bathroom. I suspect that sperm is not able to reach the fallopian tube. I consulted this with my doctor and undegone all basic tests including the sonograpgy. All reports are okay except that I have few follicles(3-4) in the overies. I asked my doctor and she said that these number changes with the cycle of your mensuration. I have observed that I feel pain in the lower abs on every 12 or 14th day of my cycle. Pls advice me how I could get pregnant?

Hi, Dutta. In the future, it's a lot easier if you make your own thread rather than posting a new topic in someone else's thread. It's less confusing that way.

Semen is supposed to come out after sex. That does not mean you can't get pregnant. In fact, it is recommended that you do get up soon after sex to urinate. So it sounds like your usual routine is just fine. After all, if simply standing up immediately after sex was a form of birth control, I think almost everyone would opt for that instead of dealing with the side effects of other methods. Laughing

The truth is, six months is not a very long time to be trying. Many couples try without success for a year or more. In fact, fertility specialists usually will not even agree to see you unless you have been trying for at least one year. After all, we are usually only at peak fertility for a couple of days a month.

You can take a look at www.mymonthlycycles.com. It's a free calendar that lets you store when you got your period, what symptoms you had, etc. It will also predict when you should be fertile and show which days you will be at peak fertility and which days you will just be somewhat fertile.
