  • It doesn't sounds like you were pregnant personally, because when you you conceive (the sperm implants the egg), it take 2 weeks for the baby to conceive after the sperm implants the egg, which should be on the first day of your period...Then you will quit having periods...If your period came earlier than normal, I don't see how it could have been a miscarriage because that would be too early to even have a miscarriage, because the baby isn't even there yet, only the egg is fertilized.

  • Sometimes you still have higher hormone levels, you could take a preg test and see if it comes up pos. Otherwise, I know it sounds gross, but look for the baby. You would have had to have gotten pregnant the cycle before and mistakenly believed your implantation bleeding was your previous period. Then you would be 6 to 7 weeks. The baby would very small, but visible. If you know for sure your last period was a real period, then it's pretty much impossible.
