Hi. I'm confused. My last period was july 11 2011. I had sex around the 28th of august and the 3rd of september. a cramp or two a few days ago. Now, im bleeding. Is it implantaion bleeding? Its red, but not heavy. Or maybe is it my period? I expected my period aroung the 15th of this month. it always is a few days later than the previous. What is the difference between implantaion bleeding and a period? Thank you!

I might be misunderstanding... Do you mean you haven't had a period for 2 months? Is that normal for you?

I had implantation bleeding with my first pregnancy. It was very little blood, and was just over a week after I'd had sex. It wasn't much blood at all, not enough to fill a pad, and it was gone the next day.

If it continues, it's probably your period. If it goes away, it could be implantation.

From what I've read, it takes a few days after implantation to get a positive pregnancy test. The hormones don't really start producing until implantation, so it takes a few days after that to register on

having no period is not normal for me. i totally thought i was pregnant in august, but bfn! i was worried something was wrong. but i read that it was probably an anovulatory cycle. maybe my period is early ( i hope not) But it is what its going to be. Thanks for the info and advice!
