Are there other possible reasons for light vaginal bleeding, other than the possibility of implantation bleeding/pregnancy?
Last cycle 5/30-6/3. regular with cycles. Sex 11,12,17,18. Withdrawal method. Did bleed after sex on 11th stopped after couple hours. 7/4 pink spotting when wiped, 5th and 6th light bleeding. Pregnancy test (-) fmu 7/7. Should I retest again later?
Yes: Withdrawal is not a reliable contraceptive. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex ...Read more

My gf had what she though was a period but doesn't know if it was just bleeding in pregnancy. How can you tell?
Can do a preg. test: A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
