what is the absolute earliest implantation bleeding can occur after intercourse?
Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
The earliest this will occur is about 10 days after intercourse and this correlates with happening 3 to 4 days PRIOR to your next projected period - I hope this helps, Please click on ACCEPT as we only get compensated for helping you when you ACCEPT, thank you

If we had sex on Saturday Night and a pinkish brown discharge started Tuesday evening and lasted aproximately 2 days, is this not implantation bleeding? if not, what else is it if this is somethign i've never experienced before?
No, There is no way this is implantation - again, the SOONEST implantation bleeding will occur is 10 days after sex, never before.
This bleeding could be due for many other reasons and this depends on where you are in your cycle - I would be happy to help more - Please click on ACCEPT, thank you

I'd like another opinion
The most common reason for bleeding between periods is that you didn't ovulate before your last period. When a woman doesn't ovulate, she can still have a period, but the uterine lining doesn't clean off with the period, so further bleeding or spotting can occur. Not ovulating is common, often due to stress or illness or other things. It generally takes care of itself in time. Your doctor could confirm whether you've ovulated this month by a blood progesterone test, since progesterone only rises after ovulation. I agree with Dr. Owen that bleeding 3 days after intercourse cannot be implantation bleeding. If pregnancy (if it occurred) is still in the tube, is microscopic size, and couldn't cause any symptom. If you had gotten pregnant earlier (a week or more), then it might be ovulation bleeding. Best regards.
