Is this implantation bleeding or my period?

Before my periods start I always get cramps a week before my period, and my periods are always on track and heavy. Well my husband and I are trying to have a baby and we had sex during my fertal/ovulation days (12 days ago). I'm supposed to start my period tomorrow but yesterday I started bleeding very light with light pink/red blood, and its still going on. I had no cramps or any sign of my period coming which isn't normal. Is this implantation bleeding or my period? When do I take a test? Help?

  • You take a test after you are late. If the bleeding gets heavier it's a period. Implantation would only last a day or so.
