Actually, if you had intercourse around the 22nd of November which is one week after the period AND the spotting occurred around the 27th, then YES it is possible that the spotting was due to implantation bleeding. The chances are low but it is still possible for you to be pregnant. If you have regular cycles then you would have ovulated around the 26th (+/- 2 days) and with the sperm being viable for up to 5 days after ejaculation in the female body, it is possible that the spotting was an indication of pregnancy. Usually, implantation bleeding would occur a week to ten days after ovulation, so this was unlikely to be implantation bleeding. But it can be ovulation related bleeding which can occur in many patients.

The point here is that the bleeding is likely to be due to ovulation itself but given the timing of intercourse a pregnancy cannot be ruled out. That is why I would suggest getting a pregnancy test around the 10th-11th of December IF you don't get your period.

I do actually. I normally was supposed to get my period the first week of November could that possibly have anything to do with potentially being pregnant? I missed my period the month of October and then got it on the 13th of November.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor replied 7 months ago

NO, if you got a period albeit a late period that rules out a pregnancy before the 13th of November. Even if you missed your period in October but getting it in November rules out a pregnancy at that time. But at the moment the spotting and unprotected intercourse around the 22nd of Nov means that a pregnancy should be ruled out with a new pregnancy test.

The other possibility is that the delayed period of October and the spotting right now can also be explained because of a hormonal imbalance. This can occur in patients who have PCOS and in these cases medications would correct the problem.
