my period or Decidual bleeding?

My last period started on the 20th of August and ended on the 24th of August. I've had a 29 day cycle for the past 3 months. I had unprotected sex multiple times on the 28th, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th. I just got my period yesterday on the 13th. Could this be decidual bleeding?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you were sexually active during your fertile days, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. For a regular menstrual cycle of 28-30 days, fertile days would be between day 6-18 taking day 1 as first day of bleeding. The early bleeding that you experienced could be suggestive of possibility of implantation bleeding. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms. Wait and watch for your periods. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.

I don't know. The period I just had was a watered down bright red and pink. It was thin and the consistency of water. It's the 20th and I'm still spotting brown. This is the longest and most abnormal period I've ever had. I've had nausea (constant on and off sickness as soon as I wake up and I get car sick), fatigue, lower back pain, stomach cramps when I exercise, and heartburn for the past 3 weeks. My breasts have also gotten much bigger and heavier. Also, I was bloated a whole week before my period started. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative so I think I'm going to get a blood test so that I can know for sure.
