Yes: It is still possible. You can have varying degrees of bleeding early in pregnancy and still be pregnant. One thing to always be concerned about is an ectopic or tubal pregnancy, but without pain, it is unlikely at this stage. It is also certainly possible that you had a spontaneous loss. Recommend following up with your doctor. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Unprotected sex: If you have your period, which is normal for you, then you are not pregnant. If you bleed, but it's a lighter bleeding and usually shorter than your normal period, do a pregnancy test to rule it out. If you miss your period, then do a pregnancy test, too. ...Read more

Yes: Often implantation bleeding, when the embryo attaches to the uterine wall, can cause bleeding that can be similar to a period. 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

Unlikely: You had intercourse at a point in your cycle when you were very unlikely to conceive. Also, if you have conceived, the test should have turned positive by now. Being two days late is not unusual. No matter what, repeat the test in one week, and if you still have not gotten your period, call your doctor!. ...Read more
