Had sex, had light brown discharge. Trying for a baby. What can we expect?

Hi! This never happened to me before. I usually have 6 days of my period every month, and my cycle is 26 days, but this month is different! My period started on 1/6/13 then ended on 1/8/13. I only had my period for 3 days since i had sex that 3rd day at night. On 1/14/13 i had a light brown bleeding or spotting and continued to 1/16/13. I never spotted after my period. What is this? I am trying for baby #3!

As you did sex on 3rd day of cycle, then there is no chance of pregnancy as it is safe period.
There are other possibilities of irregular spotting like hormonal imbalance,stress/anxiety, thyroid problem, wt gain/extreme loss, irregular eating habits etc.
Need to investigate properly to rule out underlying pathology by USG lower abdomen,Thyroid profile,LH/FSH etc.So consult with your doctor and take suggestive measures.
To conceive, you have to do unprotected sex around ovulation time which occurs 14 days before due date. You may use ovulation prediction kit.
Avoid stress,take healthy diet with Vit-E & Folic acid supplements,control body wt & proper sleeping.
Be well.
