NO: If you had sex the day your period started, you would not have implantation.

A 19-year-old female asked:

I had a 4 day period. A week later I had two day spotting. Is this implantation bleeding?

A person can't tell: Wait. A positive pregnancy test can tell a woman that prior spotting was actually implantation spotting. It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period.
