Hello I need your help. So I'm not sure when my last period started. This is going to be a little TMI but I don't know what else to do. So I know I started my period on 11/14/17. It was a normal period. Then on 11/26/17 I had some bleeding not spotting but bleeding and it only lasted about 2-3 days. So I don't know if this counts as another period or if it was just some random bleeding. Well I had sex on 12/1/17 and 12/2/17 and I don't know when I to expect my next period so I don't know when I can take a pregnancy test. Thank you for your time and help.

12 days seem too short for a period. How long are your usual periods? Are you regular?

I am pretty regular i have had a few longer periods but for the past 3 months I have had a 28 day cycle.

If you had a period, then it's only worth testing from the 24 th, if you don't want to waste tests.

If you are worried or incredibly hopeful, then maybe every other day from the 12th.

Either way, the 1st and the 2nd seem to be out of a possible fertile window period if your typical period is 28 days, but too close to comfort, and it would fall within the fertile window if you ovulated on the 30th or later, for a longer period.
