Yes: It is still possible. You can have varying degrees of bleeding early in pregnancy and still be pregnant.

Recommend following up with your doctor. ...Read more

Implantation bleeding is usually lighter or shorter, but not always. If there is any question about it, do a urine home pregnancy test. They turn positive 10-14 days after conception, right around the time the period is due. Use first morning urine for best accuracy. ...Read more

If testing too early: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test 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. ...Read more
