Ask A Doctor - When should I test? - DesiMD Healthcare Services

   

I am a 30 year old female last month on April 7th I had my implant removed from my birth control out of my arm. Then on April 10th I had a full period bout 4 days maybe maybe 5. then on April 26th or 27th I ovulated I have had sex several times this month. Now I am 2 days before my period is due and I had a light spotting when i whiped this morning and some cramping in my back and my stomach but nothing further throughout today. I'm wondering if this could be implantation bleeding and if so how long do I need to wait until I test for pregnancy. - Asked by B W on 07-May-2014 02:06:25

    You could test for pregnancy anytime now. if the urine test is negative, a blood test is recommended and more sensitive test. it is not unusual to have some spotting even during pregnancy.
