Hello everyone, Im new to this. Im trying to concieve with my fiance (we are getting married in a month and want a child). Last month we had unprotected sex around the time that I ovulated. My period was 11 days late but then I got it. It was mostly spotting except for the first day which was very heavy with cramps. The second day was light bleeding and by the night of the third day, it was spotting. And that spotting lasted another 5 days. That wasnt normal for me. Im just wondering if it is possible that I could be pregnant since my period wasnt normal. Is it possible to have mentsraul like cramps with bleeding and still be pregnant or is that a sign of miscarriage?

Have you taken a pregnacy test? That would answer your question far more accurately than we could.

If it's a negative, then giving the timing, yes, I'd say you were looking at a very early miscarriage, which is common as day, and occurs in potentially as many as half of all pregnancies, often without anyone even knowing they were pregnant.

No, really, like Miz S said, it's a fairly common thing for early miscarriages to occur, and they really aren't much different from a normal period.

Have both you and your fiance had a full physical check-up since you decided to start trying to conceive? It's incredibly important to get a clean bill of health for both of you to make sure you're in the best condition right now to start trying for a pregnancy.

Also, it's especially important that you've spoken to your obgyn since you'll need to be thinking ahead for pre-natal care. An obgyn can also help you with charting your basal body temperature and cervical mucus so you have your best chance ofr conceiving (though it sounds you may be doing some of this already, if not having already gone through the check-ups and proper visits, in which case sorry if I sound like I'm lecturing [Smile] ). For many couples it can take months to conceive, even with charting, so don't lose hope since it sounds like you've just started trying, as well [Smile]

Best of luck to you! Let us know how things go, alright?
