Poss pregnancy after heavy bleed or early period?


Q: Hi,

I had a period on 15th August, then had unprotected sex (condom broke) on 30th. I had lots of symptoms like a brekout, nausea, tender boobs etc, then light spotting but then I have begun having a period-like bleed (alternating between heavy-ish/ normal and lighter) for 2 days so far, starting 8th.This has been accompanied by nausea, lightheadedness and bloating. What does this sound like - could it be a type of implantation or breakthrough bleed, a 'miscarriage' or just an arbitrarily early period? Essentially, how plausible is it that this could be a healthy pregnancy? I took a first response test yesterday (day of bleed) and it was negative, but perhaps i'm testing too early...

Symptoms:  Bleeding, possible pregnancy, nauseau, bloating
