Customer Question

Hello Dr,
I experienced a light period 4-5 days early. My periods are never early or late. The bleeding stopped after 3 days approx (scanty brown/red blood on the 4th day). All throughout this time I barely had blood on the pad, it was always just scanty so enough for a panty liner. The blood came out while sitting over the toilet. No clots came. My period comes every 22 days. Keep in mind this bleeding started about and hour after intercourse (which is the 4-5 days before my scheduled period), could I be pregnant? I did test 5 days before my period was due but the first one had an extremely faint positive line so I'm not sure if I was just picturing it, I tested a day after and it was neg.
