Is vaginal spotting a symptom of implantation bleeding?

I have taken siphene for 5 days and after that I had laparoscopy for blocked fallopian tubes. After 10 days of surgery we had unprotected sex on alternate days..Now I am 1 week late of my periods date..I have taken the test on CD 35 ..but it showed negative result..should I wait for few more days in case if I ovulated late in the cycle..and one more thing I want to add that I had light spotting on CD30 ..can it be implantation bleeding? I have PCOS but generally regular periods..but in the previous cycle I needed ovulation induction bcoz I did not ovulate own.what should I do now?

Hello and Welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Sometimes urine pregnancy test may not give accurate result. And irregular periods due to PCOS can also be one cause for delayed periods. So, you better go for blood investigation - measurement of beta HCG levels in blood. If that is more than, the possibility of pregnancy is there. Less than rule outs the possibility of pregnancy. If it between 5 to 25, you have to repeat the test.

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

Hello, Me and my partner had sex before about one week. We did this without condom so she took emergency contraceptive pill before 72 hours. And now she told me she got bleeding in very little amount which was brown in colour. She also saw little red blood. She also noticed little cramps. This bleeding started from evening till morning. Is it implantation bleeding? If so then what is the best thing to do now? Can you please give some suggestions?

Me and my husband are trying to conceive the past month Nd a half. Today I noticed very very light pink spots on the toilet paper when I would wipe after peeing, I have been feeling nauseous the past week or so and the past 3 weeks I have had some breast tenderness . My last period was November 5 if my.ovulation tests were correct then I ovulated on the 19th this month and my period isn t due for Another week on December 5th, I did tAke a pregnancy test on November 20th and it was Negative so I assumed I was way to early to detect a pregnancy even if I was. Then today I noticed the very light pink spot on the toilet paper when I wiped after I peed. Am.I pregnant? Could this be implantation spotting? How soon could I take a pregnancy test? I m 29 my 2 previous children I received positive pregnancy results at 4 week s along. They are 8 and 6 years old now.

So on Oct 9th or 10th I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. We are both 20. Im having trouble figuring out if I m pregnant or not. I don t have a regular period because active anorexia ( I m doing my best to overcome this) so occasionally my periods will come a bit later than usual. As of October 8th I was 100% sure I wasn t pregnant. It s now the 25th and I m not sure if this is implantation bleeding or regular period. My periods generally last 3days. 1st day is spotting and gets heavy by night time, 2nd day heavy and a bit of clotting, 3rd day is clotting and usually ends by the morning. So today I woke up and felt like I was going to have my period and noticed some spotting. It s 1:35pm and it s gotten heavier. Now, I ve read a lot about implantation bleeding and pregnancy. Whats the quantity for implantation bleeding? After the spotting i put on a panty liner and soon had to change to regular pad. Does that mean this is my period. What confuses me is I ve also had some ligament pains in pelvic area earlier in the month...which is said to be a sign of pregnancy. But I think I ve had them before? I don t know. Any advice will help!!
