starting period or implantation beeding

This is my first time posting on this dont know how it works . But im really confused i dont know if im starting my period or if its implantantion bleeding . I skipped my period all last month and just yesterday i start spotting very light red brown blood . Ive been cramping for about a week or so but i barely bled yesterday. Me and my boyfriend havent used protection lately and all last month during sex he would ejaculate inside me . The light bleeding was lastnight this morning i woke up bleeding mildly like if i was getting my period . I dont know whats going on. Its strange because when i get my period i cramp alot these were mild cramps and i start my period very heavy so it doesnt feel normal .

Hello! Here is the answer to your query on eHealth forum!

Since you have missed your period once and since you had unprotected sex multiple times, please take a pregnancy test and see. Mild cramping, gas, pain in lower abdomen etc is also felt during pregnancy. It could also be a sign of threatened abortion. So, either go for a blood test for pregnancy or buy a good home kit. Please also consult your gynecologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
