how soon can i take a pregnancy test?

okay so im 89% sure im pregnant but very anxious

me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex on october 12 and october 13 multiple times

then i started by period the 15th, and it ended on something like the 19th

*on november 1st we had sex 3 times and he came inside me*

around november 8th i started having INTENSE period like cramps, a huge migraine, back pains nausea extreme thirst and frequent peeing, i never have cramping or anything along with my period

i looked it up online and these were the symptoms of pregnancy i found

now on the 10th i started bleeding, i read on the internet that it could be implantation bleeding? i still dont understand that, it said it would be lighter & shorter than a period and about a week before your expected period. but its not lighter at all.

i'm planning on taking a home pregnancy test when would be the best time to do it, now the 15th or sometime after like the 20th or even the first of december?

should i even bother is the bleeding now my period?

my period starts on the 15th almost everytiime, if not then a few days after


i forgot to add, the bleeding was more brown and it just ended around 5 today.

i read that this is normal after ovulation

    Try one day after your period is supposed to start. That is the general rule for these tests. Try and buy a pregnancy test that come with 2 tests. That way you can take the second test a couple days later, just to be on the safe side.

    If you started your period around the 15th, your ovulation date should have been somewhere around October 29. I think it is safe to take a pregnancy test now. If you want to know more about your ovulation dates and due dates here are some websites that may be useful:

    I have found all of these sites very useful in planning my second pregnancy, and with the help of God, these websites, and the cervical mucus test I was able to conceive. So try the pregnancy test, call your doctor and get the ball rolling. Good luck!!!

    wait a week see how long the bleeding last if its heavy or last longer than 3 days its your period most implantation bleeding only last for 1 to 2 days and is light with only mild to no cramping if the bleeding stops go take a test a week after would be your best bet and take it in the morning

    I'm thinking this was your period but you can accurately test on the 22nd.

    sounds like it is an early period and not pregnancy
