Severe cramps, light periods, nausea, protected sex. Implantation bleeding?

Hi- I am worried about being pregnant. I don t have immediate access to a pregnancy test . My period came 4 days late and started off heavy with horrible cramps but soon after became light. I also became very nauseated. The period only lasted for 4 days but my periods usually last for 6 days and are consistently heavy. My boyfriend and I had intercourse last on tuesday night and used a condom correctly. Does this sound like implantation bleeding or just a period?

Thanks for posting your query.
You could not be pregnant because of two reasons-
first one is you had sex in safe period ,
Second one is you used barrier contraception during intercourse.
some variation in periods may occur & you may feel nauseating sensation due to prostaglandins released during periods.
But for confirmation you can do pregnancy test at home with pregnancy kit available at pharmacy.
Take care.

Hi Yasmin

Since you had your menstrual bleed it is not possible for you to be pregnant . Implantation bleed is seen only as spotting , which is very small amounts of bleed. it definitely is not a heavy bleed during implantation.

In case of any more queries feel free to consult with me
