my boyfriend and i use the withdrawal method, which i know still leaves the chance of pregnancy. my last period was 9/4 and we had sex on 9/18 which i think i was ovulating. my period isnt due until thursday or friday. i started to feel a yeast infection coming on a few days ago after finishing some antibiotics, i used monastat1 before symptoms got to bad. yesterday i noticed pink spotting just when i wiped. then today its dark brown and only there when i wipe. could i be pregnant and this be implantation bleeding. or did the yeast infection have something to do with it. i also have a little cramping and feel very bloated even more then when i have my usual period. can anyone help me?????

I just moved your topic to this board as I thought you might get more response. I would wait until you are late and then go out and get a test.

Here's some info I found on Implantation Bleeding:

Implantation Bleeding

What does implantation bleeding look like?
Implantation bleeding is vaginal discharge which usually contains a small amount of pinkish or brownish blood. Only about a third of pregnant women experience implantation bleeding.

When does implantation bleeding usually occur?
It can happen at the time the fertilized egg implants in the uterus, on average between 6 to 12 days past ovulation.

Should I worry about implantation bleeding occurring?
Unless accompanied by cramping, backache or increased bleeding, a small amount of blood being discharged should be considered as implantation bleeding which is nothing to be concerned about.

If this is implantation bleeding, when can I test to see if I am pregnant?
Home pregnancy tests are based on a very simple principle. They work by through the detection of the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in a woman's urine. This hormone is a hormone secreted by the developing placenta shortly after a fertilized egg has been implanted in the uterine lining.
If a woman is pregnant, the amount of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in her system should be around 25 mIU at 10 dpo (days past ovulation), 50 mIU at 12 dpo, 100 mIU at around two weeks dpo. Because of their high sensitivity factor ( 20 mIU/ml hCG ) in detecting human hCG, both the AimStick pregnancy tests can confirm pregnancy as early as 6-8 days past ovulation. To help lower the chances of a false negative, the best time to test at 9 or 10 days past ovulation would be advisable.

Hope it helps, good luck!
