Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX

If you had a full, real period, then you're not pregnant.
Sometimes it's difficult to tell implantation bleeding from having a period. As you took the medication in the appropriate time period, then it's very unlikely you're pregnant, especially if you have a period afterwards.

I advice you to wait till the periods are over then go for urine pregnancy test, just to confirm.

Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.

Hello
Good to hear from you.
It is less likely to be implantation bleeding in your case, i think it is normal period. I advice you to do urine pregnancy test for confirmation.

You could suspect it is implantation bleeding if it occurs a bit earlier than expected, if it were scanty, spotty, pinkish and not red and heavy like a period.

Hope i have cleared your queries. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer.
Wish you good health.

Hello
Good to hear from you.

If it's negative you need not to worry. Its nearly 97 to 98% accurate.

I advice you to use some contraception when you are not planning to be pregnanct.

Wish you good health.
Take care.
