Do pink discharge and cramps indicate pregnancy?

Hi! So, I don’t know if i’m having implantation bleeding or not and google is just confusing me at this point. My last period started on September 24 and for the month of October, it was supposed to start on October 27. I had sex on the 23 and 26 and 27 of October and wa came in each time at least twice. (Sorry if it’s TMI) Saturday no period, Sunday no period, Monday, still no period! Then late Monday night rolled around and I had a light pink discharge (that of pregnancy) and cramping but not too painful. And Tuesday morning, I was bleeding. It was brown, pink, dark red, black. I know the main colors of implantation bleeding are brown and pink, but i’m confused. I’ve been bleeding since Tuesday, not as much as a normal period and it’ll stop for an hour or so and return. I’m afraid it’s an eptopic pregnancy. Normally for my periods I throw up with fevers and have to sleep it off but that hasn’t happened ths time around. I plan on taking a pregnancy test a day or so after the bleeding stops. Should I be worried or start expecting a baby? Can someone explain to me what’s happening?

Hello,

I think there is a great probability of the spotting being implantation bleeding. The brown color shows that blood is in small amount and stays for long in the genital routs. Wait for 5 more days and do a pregnancy home test.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
