Yes: Having a heavy menstrual period. That occurs 11 days earlier than with do can be caused by an implantation bleed which occurs when someone is early on in her pregnancy. There are other causes of heavy bleeding between periods such as hormonal balance. Anyone who sexually active particularly having unprotected sex is highly likely to become pregnant. Would recommend using condoms and birth control
