Hi I have a question about whether I could be


Q: Hi I have a question about whether I could be pregnant or not. I am on the pill and have been for 5 years. I was due on my period wednesday/Thursday but I only started bleeding today. I was concerned as 3 weeks ago our condom split and was just worried this was more than coincidence. I have taken 2 pregnancy tests and both came back negative. Yesterday I had normal cramping and leg ache (which is what I get before a period) and spotting, then this morning when going to the toilet I had heavier bleeding, normal red colour, but only when wiping. Some of it was quite thick/mucusy aswell as blood. I haven't had any blood on my pad though although still bleeding when wiping after going to the toilet. I seem to be urinating more often as well. I thought I could be late and having this light period due to stress? I don't ever have periods this light but my Nan died on the 26th March and I have been very upset. From what I have read, implantation bleeding is very light and would have happened before now. Spotting as well should be pink/brown and I haven't had that; blood is normal/red. Just looking for confirmation/reassurance that this is still menstruation and not a sign of pregnancy!
