Menstrual changes: If you are sexually active, even if you use contraception, I recommend checking a home pregnancy test. While rare, some women do experience spotting or bleeding early in pregnancy that can mimic a period. It's best to check. Home pregnancy tests are pretty accurate starting the first day your period is due. If negative, check again in 1 more week just to be sure. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi - I had some spotting for about a day but I am 2 weeks before my next period is due. Could this be implantation bleeding?

Maybe not: A baby embryo implants about 10 days AFTER conception (after ovulation plus sex). A positive home pregnancy test can tell a woman that PRIOR spotting was actually implantation spotting. Some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. One can do a home pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more

No: Women have more than one hole, but sperm must enter the correct hole in order to swim to the egg and create a pregnancy. Any activities in the wrong hole do not lead to pregnancy (unless other activities happen "in the heat of the moment"). One can consider using a reliable form of birth control if not wanting a baby, regardless of what sexual activities are going on, as life can be surprising. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
