A:   Hello,
If you have experienced two episodes of bleeding per vaginum in january, with the first one normal and the second episode in the midcycle in form of light and short bleeding accompanied with mild lower abdominal cramps , also you have been sexually active during this cycle and not on any contraception , then there are chances that the second scanty bleed may have been an implantation bleed or a ovulation bleed.
Presently it is important for you to opt for a blood serum beta hcg test to check the levels of hcg which shall confirm or rule out pregnancy definitively. If the levels of hcg are more than 1 or raised then you are pregnant for sure and the symptoms you are experiencing are early pregnancy symptoms and the bleed was an implantation bleed.
But if the levels of hcg are less than 1, then pregnancy is ruled out and the bleed was possibly an ovulation bleed and the symptoms of sore breasts and backache may might as well constitute premenstrual symptoms or PMS indicating that your menses shall ensue in next few days.
I hope i have answered your query in detail,
wishing you good health,
