Did you had unprotected sexual encounter recently {in June}? Do you have any diagnosed medical condition?

I have no medical conditions, I have had unprotected sex with my partner as we are trying for another child.

Hello Sam,

Mild bleeding in first week after the sexual act can be an implantation bleed {sign of pregnancy}. However other causes also need to be looked for - abnormality at the ovary {cyst}/ infection or inflammation at the cervix/ fibroid.

A physical evaluation along with few investigations like urine pregnancy test {needs to be done a week after you miss your period}/ ultrasound for pelvis {transvaginal}.

Wish you well.

Good luck
