Early period w/ spotting for 3 days (never happens) bloating, gurgling belly, burps, sore itchy breast & sides. Pink spotting after sex. Pregnant?

Get a test!: Pregnancy tests, even over-the-counter ones, are very accurate. Generally, if you conceived more than 14 days ago, the pregnancy test will be positive. There is a chance that you conceived too recently for the test to pick up the low levels of hormone in your system. If you had intercourse less than two weeks ago, then you will need to repeat the test when it has been at least two weeks. ...Read more

I had my period Oct 19. Normally have a usual 28-30 day cycle. Tan spotting 3-5 days before expected period. Implantation or early period?

Yes: It could be either. Any time you are having unprotected intercourse, pregnancy is a possibility but things as simple as the time change, stress, changes in diet or exercise, and medications taken for other things can disrupt your cycle. When in doubt, do a pregnancy test and if you don't have your period and it is negative, repeat it in 3days to 1 week. Best wishes. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Period came early had spotting at night on a thurs then fri woke up and was like a normal period but ended on a sun could I b pregnant?

Maybe not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 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 thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period next cycle, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more
