Implantation bleeding or too early?

Sorry ya'll....I googled the heck out of this and just can't find an answer that makes sense based on my situation.

Okay, my cycles run between 26 and 30 days so there is a window of ovulation.

Had intercourse on day 17. (only time this cycle). On day 19 I had light brown discharge that lasted a day and stopped. I'm only on day 21 so too early to test. Any spotting is extremely unusual for me and my periods start heavy and steady (and it's way early for that, oc).

Have you ever heard of someone having implantation bleeding just 2 days after intercourse? In my case

It's really hard to say. Once you ovulate, you are only fertile for about 24 hours. Implantation usually takes about a week from fertilization. Bleeding can happen for many reasons. It could be related to your cycles or it could've been from the sex.

I'm sorry I don't really have a definite answer for you. The only way you'll really know is to test in a week or so and go from there. Good luck!
