Could I be pregnant
Hi , I had my last period on the 18th of March , I normally bleed a full 7 days . On the 4th of April , I starting spotting but it lasted for 3 days , the colour was brown . The spotting then started again 2 days later and only laste for 2 days . Under normal circumstances , I should have had my next period the 15th of April already . I had sexual intercourse during my fertile period which I know was from the 27th of March to 1st of April . I haven't done a pregnancy test yet 'cause I'm scared that I will be dissapointed . I went off the injection last year May already . Please tell me if there's a possibilty that I could be pregnant . I would also like to know why I spotted the way I did and if this is the reason why my period is late . I'm really anxious 'cause I lost a baby 2 years ago and I'm really wanting to fall pregnant again .

Your period is 7 days overdue. Check a pregnancy test rather than speculating.The spotting could be an implantation bleed.
