Spotting question

I know this might be a dumb question but I have been spotting for the past couple of days, my period is due in 2 weeks me and hubby dont use anything but i am on the paraguard iud. i have two other children 3 and 14 months. I know the most obvious thing to do is take a test but would that even work since my period isn't even late and is due in 2 weeks? I have been going to the bathroom like crazy for the past week but not sure if that is just due to medicine or not. so i guess my question is is, is it possible to be spotting 2 weeks before period is due and be pregnant?

  • Anything is always possible. Isn't it a side effect of any IUD to have occasional spotting? Perhaps that is the culprit...I don't know if you would get an accurate answer from a HPT since your period isn't due for 2 weeks. GL

  • Could be implantation bleeding but, if it is, it would be WAY too early to test.
