I had sex with my partner twice a week before my ovulation week, had sex twice during my ovulation week and twice a week before my period due date? My periods meant to come on this week . On Tuesday I had sex with my partner and the next morning I noticed some light bleeding then it came on and off throughout the day (had cramping also) I'm wondering if it's my period, and if it is I don't understand why it's different from my normal periods? Coz normally my period are very heavy especially on the first two days. I'm really confused and worried, don't know what to do. I know I'm not pregnant coz I haven't had any pregnancy symptoms

this is spotting. Did you have protected sex?


No it was unprotected


This is spotting before periods.

Spotting could be a sign of pregnancy, especially if you've had sex while you were ovulating. This usually happen 3-5 days after you've had unprotected sex.

Spotting MAY indicate pregnancy especially if it isn't followed by your regular period. It is a good idea to go see your doctor to confirm exactly what's not right.


I don't know if it was spitting or just my period. Took a pregnancy test the week after and it came out negative. Went to the clinic and I got told that it may have been my period. But I'm confused coz all my periods have always been heavy


In that case, it can be an early period. If you are having other symptoms, we can assess the concern.
