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 7-10 days after unprotected intercourse is much more helpful. If you are trying to avoid pregnancy considering your age please see your doctor to discuss birth control options. If you are trying to get pregnant take a prenatal vitamin. ...Read more

A person can't tell: A positive pregnancy test can tell a woman that PRIOR spotting was actually implantation spotting. Until then, it can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some 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

Too soon to know: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are younger than 27 years. ...Read more

Pregnant possibility: This change in bleeding could be related to a pregnancy but may also just be mild variation in your menses. have you taken a pregnancy test. I would suggest taking one if you are unsure. If you have been faithful with your birth control pills then pregnancy isn't very likely. Menses can become lighter on the pill and some women even stop having menses on the pill ...Read more
