I am wanting to get pregnant, and I had sex 3 times everyother night. Unprotected. My period was due in about 5 days well on the last night i had sex i woke up the next morning with bleeding. But my period was not due for another 3 days and i never had early periods. It is sorta heavy for my period and it has lasted so far for 2 days. Could this maybe be pregnancy?????

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. There’s a possibility of the heavy bleeding being due to an abortion. The other possibility of course is an early period. I’ll suggest doing a serum beta HCG levels done for the confirmation of pregnancy. This remains elevated in the blood for a few days even after abortion. It’s also important to do an ultrasound of the uterus to look for any remnants of conception, if indeed it’s an abortion.

Please do consult an obstetrician for the confirmation of diagnosis. I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
