Welcome to ehealthforum,
Few women can have period like bleeding at the expected period time during first few months of pregnancy (also known as decidual bleeding). Wait and watch for your next periods or observe your current period to see if it is normal. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any new symptoms. If you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, or if you suspect chances 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. Avoid caffeinated and carbonated beverages.
Take care.
