spotting or implantation bleeding?
Alright. Panicking a bit over here!
My period was due about 5 days ago. I believe I was ovulating around Oct 15th. I had sex with someone I shouldn't have on Oct 19th. We used condoms, and I am not on birth control.
Yesterday I had very light pink spotting, barely anything and thought "What a relief!" Then mostly nothing else until tonight, a wee bit more pink followed by a bit of brown spotting just now. Totally doesn't look anything like my normal period. I remembered in my preliminary panicked internet research reading about implantation bleeding and can't stop trying to figure out if that is what this is. I have been cramping a lot, and really hoped this was my period. My period can often be late for no good reason, even when I've had no sex.
Ultimately I know I need to take a pee test a.s.a.p.
What I am curious about is, can stress/change in routine possibly cause this type of spotting or irregularity in my period? I recently was layed off from my full-time job, so my schedule has changed and I am a bit worried about what the future holds.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
