I had my period on Feb 19th. Then I had sex the weekend after it was done. I took the morning after pill. Then got my period again around march 6th. So I got my last period on March 27th. I had sex on the last day of it which was the 31st. I didnt take the pill or use a condom. On April 12th I think i experienced implantion bleeding. I saw alittle pink when i wiped and again the next day.It was only those two times that i had seen blood, and only when i wiped. So my questions are: Can I be pregnant, and how long until I’m able to take a home pregnancy test? Thanks!

Refer to your period cycle, you can take a pregnancy test on April 26. It can be done in the morning or after waking up in order to get the most accurate result. You also mentioned that you had some bleeding, your pregnancy result can tell you the possible cause.

  1. When your result is positive, it might be implantation bleeding which can occur after conception. This is normal and common. It will stop on its own and doesn’t require any treatment. However if the bleeding persists during pregnancy, you should contact your health care provider.
  2. When your result is not positive, it might be other physical causes such as pelvic abnormality, etc. It is one of the symptoms that women should not ignore. If the bleeding persists between periods, you should seek medical help to find out the real cause of bleeding.
