If you are at risk for chlamydia, you should get tested. Testing is painless, free at your local department of health, and can help you get treatment early.

Signs of implantation bleeding are as follows: -

  • Implantation bleeding occurs 8-12 days after unprotected sex. When a woman experiences implantation bleeding it means the Embryo has implanted itself in your Uterus and has began releasing HCG. You can not do a pregnancy test at this time for a further 2-3 weeks.
  • Implantation bleeding can be light bleeding which lasts a few hours to 2-3 days.
  • Implantation bleeding can be spotting which does not require a pad or tampon.
  • Bleeding which is very light and does not require a tampon or pad.
  • Bleeding or streaks of blood on tissue paper when you wipe.
  • Brown light bleeding or pinkish light bleeding.
  • Brown spotting of blood or pinkish/reddish spotting of blood.
  • Brown/Pinkish or reddish discoloured vaginal discharge.

While chlamydia does not affect ovulation and menstruation, chlamydia can cause irregular bleeding or bleeding after intercourse. This bleeding may be mistaken for a period when it's actually bleeding from the cervix.

Chlamydia should not affect a period cycle; however, some women with chlamydia have irregular bleeding or spotting, or bleeding after sex, that may be mistaken for a period when it's actually bleeding from the cervix.

A period can normally go from light to heavy to light as implantation bleeding is scanty and light. Normally your period is red but implantation bleeding can be pink or a brown discharge. When I had implantation bleeding it lasted 5 days and it was a very light brown color. Answer: Yes most the time you can tell the difference. Sometimes people get it confused with their period tho if they are irregular or just think that was it. Best thing to do is wait a week after what might be implantation and take a test for best results.
