Period and pregnancy?

ok im going to try and explain this. My question is, If you have sex when your ovulating and then right as you stop and a few days later a sperm and egg are fertilized but PMS has already started to kick in will you still have a light period but be pregnant? Does that make any sense?

  • Well, if you have a "light period" a few days after ovulation & you think you conceived, then you may be experiencing implantation bleeding. A lot of women have implantation bleeding & confuse it with a period. It will probably be a lighter flow & shorter timeframe than your normal period, and may be a light pink/ brown color. There's really no way to know for sure... You'll unfortunately just have to wait the 2 weeks & then take a test. I remember how aggravating it was to have to wait to test while TTC.... : ( Good luck!!!
