Irregular periods, discharge of altered blood, had tamoxifen for ovulation induction. Miscarriage or menstruation?

ƪ have had A̶̲̥̅ missed period for 6days today. And for the last 48hrs noticed passage of small qunatity of dark altered blood. This only occurs when ƪ wipe after weeing. Am really worried. Is this an implantation bleed, an early miscarriage or A̶̲̥̅ light period. Note that ƪ hav had A̶̲̥̅ regular 28days cycle in the past few months. Also had tamoxifen last month for ovulation induction.

Thanks for your query.
As you have had tamoxifen for ovulation induction, the possibility of a pregnancy or a related miscarriage needs to be ruled out.
Since you were overdue for 6 days, then please take a urine pregnancy test.
If positive, then the possibility of an early pregnancy or a miscarriage will arises.
This can be differentiated by an ultrasound.
Otherwise, this would be a lighter than normal period.
All the best.
