Unlikely pregnancy: Highly unlikely to be implantation bleeding from a pregnancy. More likely minimal bleeding from trauma of intercourse depending on how rough it may have been or residual blood from your period. You will need to wait for the next cycle To come in order to be 100% sure of anything.

That's ok: Sometimes remnant blood/debris can present as light discharge. If the discharge worsens, develops foul odor or you have other symptoms, see your GYN for a pelvic exam/ assessment.

Risk of miscarriage: Any bleeding early in pregnancy increases your risk of miscarriage from around 20% to around 50%, but light bleeding is less worrisome than heavy bleeding. If the ultrasound confirmed the pregnancy is in the uterus then you have to wait and see. Hormone levels could be helpful to confirm that all is normal.

Misinformed?: Nowhere does bleeding or having a period ever represent pregnancy. This question comes frequently, but the answers are always the same. Why would you even wonder for a second you could be pregnant if you had a period?

Pregnancy test: If you had sex since your last period, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the 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. Get HPV vaccine.

Cycle changes: Normal variations in the female menstrual cycle will cuase this. Certainly, other factors like stress, tension, anxiety, illness can contribute. Monitor you monthly cycles with a menstrual diary.

Light pink discharge only when I wipe at 6 weeks pregnant. Is this normal? No cramping.

Probably okay: This type of minor bleeding is relatively common in pregnancy early on but could represent the earliest signs of a miscarriage also. If you feel okay at this point I would advise simply follow-up with your obstetrical provider as a matter of routine.

Re do test: If you had unprotected sex since your last period, please repeat the test 4-5 days after a missed period. Use first morning urine and follow the 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. Get HPV vaccine.

Check preg test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection.

Why am I having light pink/orange discharge when I wipe? I am on the depo shot but missed one in may, unprotected sex in July but got another on August. Now spotting on and off with negative pregnancy test but stomach getting big and hard

When in doubt: Just check pregnancy test again. And if you are still not bleeding normally and first pregnancy test was negative, check it again in 1 week. But it is not likely that you are pregnant given significant bleeding. However the timing of the unprotected intercourse is worrisome as it occurred right when you were very vulnerable, and the Depo shot in August likely did not help prevent the pregnancy.

Uncertain: Sligh bleeding mid cycle can be normal. I you are on oral contraception and it's happening regularly you should talk to your doctor about changing birth control pills. Sometimes there can be slight leading with ovulation. Sometimes it can indicate hormonal imbalance, especially common when weight is out of the normal range.
