Hormonal Imbalance or Implantation Bleeding?
GillianR posted:
I stopped taking my birth control last month when I finished my pack. My boyfriend and I had quite a lot of sex during the week I was supposed to ovulate. The following week, I began spotting. It was very light and pink. Nothing like a regular period. It also only lasted three days, on and off. The following week is when I should have started my period, and I didn't. I am now one week late, and I'm not sure weather or not the bleeding could have been implantation bleeding, or if it was from not taking my pill. Thoughts on the matter would be very helpful.

If you are over due for your period by a week then you should take a test asap with 1st morning urine.

Best of Luck.
