Thanks for the prompt response. The withdrawal bleed started

This answer was rated:

Thanks for the prompt response. The withdrawal bleed started on 4th june and ended 8th june. my cycle is usually btw 30 and 31 days, so i expected my ovulation to be btw 17th and 22nd june. So during this period, i had sexual intercourse becos i m trying to get pregnant. a week after this, i was having pregnancy symptoms but was really sad when on the 7th of july, i got my period. Since my cycle is actually 30 - 31 days, i thot i was pregnant when i didnt get my period on the 4th but sadly on the 7th, my period came :( Also, the period lasted for less than 2 days and this has never happened before. My period usually lasts for 5 to 7 days. I did a pregnancy test and it showed negative. So, right now, i m really confused as i really want to get pregnant and i dont understand what exactly is happening. So here re my questions: 1) Why was my period late? 2) why did it last just 2days? 3) Will i ovulate this month?
