One day Period (5 days late)...pregancy spotting or period?

I have been sexually active in a commited relationship, but whilst using condoms. Although 2 weeks ago the condom my bf and I were using spilt - he quickly pulled out before there was any risk and we stopped.

Usually I have heavey 3-5 days periods, at regular 26 day cycles.

This month I was 5 days late, after 2 days late I took a pregancy test which was negative.

I saw my GP which she adviced me to wait up to 2 weeks before testing again and in the meantime gave me the contraceptive pill to take if/when my period arrived.

When my period finally arrived it was light soptting (dark red/brown) barely requiring a tampon and by the end of the next day had stopped.

Does this even register as a period or is it pregancy spotting? I took the pill on my first day expecting it to be a usual period.

Please any advice or words of wisdom would be helpful, I cant wait another 2 weeks worrying.

Re: One day Period (5 days late)...pregancy spotting or period?

I don't think it's pregnancy spotting. Also by using the pill a female can have slight spotting of blood between the periods. Sometimes periods can be different each month. Some birth control pills help heavy periods and to make them shorter and lighter. Another thing stress can delay a female's period. Stress can cause delay in ovulation which can result in delayed periods.
