Im 22 years old and on Monday 23 April I noticed my discharge was pinkish and smelled like blood however my period is only due for the 9th of May. And today 27th of April I experienced bleeding but the blood was extremely light! And only occured for a few hours Unlike usual period blood, this has never happened to me ever since the start if my periods when I was 13 and my periods are regular.

So April's period was 3 days late, I wasn't panicking because I have an iud inserted its been 1.5 years now. I read that spotting before your period might be a sign of implantation and that implantation usually occurs 5-11 days after conception so I calculated 11 days prior to today which was between the 15th and 16th of April and my fiancee and I had sex ( we don't use protection and he ejaculates inside me ) however those days ( 15th&16th ) were my fertile days - medium chances of getting pregnant. I don't know if I should be concerned as the chances of pregnancy with an iud are unlikely.

Hello, Anon. Thank you for writing.

As you say, it's unlikely you are pregnant if you are using an IUD and thus far have had no problems with it. Mid-month spotting can occur from time to time. Your period is not due yet so I would I would not worry too much. If you don't get your period at the expected time, test for pregnancy. If you are concerned that there might be an issue with the IUD, it's best to see your GYN.
