Trying to conceive

hi everyone, I'm desperate for some advice please. I had unprotected sex with my partner twice in My fertile period Of the month. A week later I had pregnancy symptoms. I felt sick had mild cramps, twinges, tiredness and felt lots of happening in my belly. My period wasn't due for about 12 days so I knew something wasn't right. I period was due the 4th / 6th August and this hasent happened. However I had brown discharge on the 1st August , a normal to heavy bleed on 2nd, a light bleed on the 3rd and nothing or just brown when I wiped on the 4th and 5th. My periods are never early and I normally have a heavy bleed for quite a few days . This bleed was just two days. I've looked on line and it says if I am pregnant then implantation bleeding was most likely to occur on the 1st August which it did. However all tests are still coming up negative. I really am getting down in the dumps and wouled be grateful for some help please. Thank you Claire x

It's unlikely you are pregnant or that you would have pregnancy symptoms one week after conceiving.

Thank you for your reply so would u say I've had an early period?. Well the symptoms were to early to be period related as I only get that couple of days before My period. My sister felt twinges a week after ovulating so i put it down to that . X

Tosh.....with my first pregnancy I started throwing up at conception...I was even hospitalised for it as drs didn't know why I couldn't keep anything down.
I finally got a bfp at 5 weeks pregnant after almost 3 solid weeks of throwing up! I went on to be diagnosed with the extreme pregnancy sickness.
I stopped throwing up 4 hours after baby was delivered lol
So yes you can get symptoms from conception - just depends how your body reacts to changing hormones, I've had other babies and never had sickness that bad again but I always know before my af due that I'm getting a bfp! Usually sore bust/ tired/ nausea/ feeling off.
Trust your body - could be your testing early as hcg doubles every 2 days from implantation so day 2 hcg :1, day 3 hcg:2 day 5 hcg:4. Day 7 hcg could still be low as 8 so still to soon to show on even sensitive tests....
Hope this helps x I'd still give it a while before ruling a bfp out. You could always ask gp for advice but ours wount do anything until you are 28 days late.

Aww thanks so much for your help. made me feel better as I feel so different and I know something is up. I'm gonna try and hold off untill Thursday because id be a week late then. Do u think it was implantation bleeding or an early period? I did have one day where it was normal to heavy flow but that was it the next day was just light. So only two days bleeding in total. Thanks again for all your advice. X
