Possible: Wait another week and check first AM urine with home pregnancy test. It could also be dysfunctional uterine bleeding which is common with hormonal shifts even with stress. Trying to conceive can be stressful which works against you. Easier said than done, but try to relax. Many couples conceive after adoption because the pressure is off. Follow up with your fertility specialist, too. Take care.

Can implantation bleeding occur after a heavy period? Are you pregnant if that happens?

See answer: Implantation bleeding usually occurs within 7-10 days after fertilization and prior to the onset of the expected menstrual period. It is usually light (spotting), brief in duration, and is often un-noticed. If you had a normal or heavy period at the time of your expected period, then no pregnancy. There are always rare exceptions: heavy implantation bleeding and implantation after period can occur.

Possible: Implantation bleeding is not really as common as the internet would have you believe. When it does happen it's usually 6-12 days after ovulation. A pregnancy test 14 days after unprotected intercourse is much more helpful. Implantation bleeding occurs exclusively in pregnant women. If your pregnancy test is negative then the bleeding was just irregular spotting.

Pregnancy test: Implantation bleeding occurs only when you are pregnant. Since you had a period and are on birth control pregnancy seems unlikely. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. If negative then it sounds like you are either just had some blood left over in the vagina from your period or that you are experiencing breakthrough bleeding.

Likely breakthrough: It's almost never implantation bleeding, that is largely an internet myth. If - a big if - you actually get implantation bleed it would be about 7 days after ovulation, or about a week before your expected period. If you bleed when you expect your period, a pregnancy test would be positive if it was implantation.

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.
