How could I determine if its my menstruation or sign of early pregnancy ?

at 1AM i went to pee, and upon wiping i saw some pinkish-brownish/red mucus. i pee d and pee d and saw the pink over and over again, and hours passed by and it got heavier. i used a napkin and the blood was red. it could be a brownish red but mostly red. the napkin didn t get blood allover as i usually do during my period but the bleeding hasn t stopped until now. and it isn t thick and gooey like my normal period days. how could i determine if its my menstruation or its an early pregnancy sign ? how long does the Implantation Bleeding occurs? can it be longer than that given period? * the intense bleeding lasted for about 2days. a lil bit of spotting on the 3rd day. may i also state that i am bulimic for months now. i only stopped 2 weeks ago. this kind of menstruation never happened to me.

hi welcome to health care magic.you confirm your doubt by doing pregnancy test but as implantation occurs during there is no bleeding occurs if it is then it is risky.

I am wondering if I could be having signs of early pregnancy or if im just stressing myself out? I had a regular and on time period 2 weeks ago, the last 2 weeks I ve had cramping, lower abdominal pain, fullness, cloudy urine, and my boobs sometimes hurt, but not like tenderness, sharp pain now and then. It doesn t matter how I sit lay or stand. It never really seems to change. I have been quite stressed out lately, and not eating properly. Im also not a person to drink a lot of water.

I had a normal period which began April 3, 2014 and ended as usual after 5 days menstruation. I had kind of a bloody show May 3rd lasted about an hour and then nothing since. I have taken 2 test and both said negative but have a bit of lower abdominal discomfort but no sickness, no tenderness in my breasts, no mood swings, no fatigue either. Could I be pregnant or is it early menopause as I am 48?
