Brief Answer:
This is periods bleeding

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I have read you query and I understand your concerns about chances of pregnancy.

Following is my reply:

1) Ovulation occurs before 10 days of starting periods and hence having sex one week before periods will not lead to pregnancy.

2) It appears that her periods have started early and brown spotting you have seen is not implantation bleeding.

3) I dont see any reason for worry as there is no chance of pregnancy.

I hope I answered you query and addressed your concerns.

Let me know if you wish to ask any further questions. I will be glad to help you.

Hi I am 32 I just had a period or so I think. I believe w/previous pregnancies I was fertile before my actual period came. I have been hoping to concieve but, haven t actually tried. My husband & I use the pull out method & have successfully for 6 years. My period this month began on the 3rd it was lighter than normal but, not light it seemed like a shorter period, lasting only 4 days from start to end. The day I began my period I had unprotected sex again pullout method... the period seemed to be a week early also as it began it was brown & red slow to start then it held pace for the duration of 3 days the 4th just off & on spotting.

Hello, I have PCOS and recently started letrozole. My last mentral cycle started on July 10th. I am not due for my next cycle for another 5 or so days. I'm typically on a 30-32 day cycle. I started spotting today, but it's very light and brown (almost non existent). I also have had a headache for the past two days and cramping. Is it to early to take a pregnancy test? Does this sound like implantation bleeding?
