Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Just 9 days period was late and you got home pregnancy test , that was negative and report was true.
This may be due to hormonal imbalance , which is very common during this stage.
As after sex ( on 10th day of late ) you were bleeding although scanty , but it was for 4 days , so no chance of any pregnancy.
Good luck.

Thanks for consulting us.
In the absence of a positive pregnancy test & ultrasound report it is difficult to label this as a miscarriage, it may well be a late period as there was no pain & late periods tend to be heavy.
If you don't have any past history of late periods, it would be wise to have one trans-vaginal ultrasound to make sure all is fine.
Take care.
