The bleeding you experienced in March could have been implantation bleeding which can happen 6-12 days after you conceive and lasts from a few hours to a few days. Have you taken a pregnancy test? A pregnancy test (or a trip to your obgyn) is the only way to confirm or deny if you pregnant. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about pregnancy tests including the different kinds and how they work.

Best wishes,
