I have a paragard IUD. I had sex while on my period last

Customer Question

I have a paragard IUD. I had sex while on my period last Thursday (11 days ago). Over the weekend I experienced some spotting over the course of three days (about a week after I had sex). Is it possible this was implantation bleeding? Could I be pregnant?

Implantation bleeding seems highly unlikely, mostly because pregnancy is highly unlikely having sex while on your period.

Most of the time when women think they may be having implantation bleeding, it's just irregular spotting.

If your period comes late, I'd do a pregnancy test, but I doubt that you're pregnant.

If your period comes when expected, you'll know you're not. Best regards.
