Some women also have spotting along with abdominal pains, which may show up within days of normal menstruation. This spotting may appear just like a slight color sign, when you use toilet paper, or it may be more intense and you’ll need to wear a panty liner.
The top-secret in all this mess is understanding, whether you are feeling the normal PMS symptoms that you deal with every month, and paying attention to what you are feeling now. If you have been trying to become pregnant for some time, you have most likely already begun to take care of your body much better. If you simply had unprotected sex, it may be harder for you to tell the difference. In other cases, knowing what symptoms to expect after implantation can also go a long way in helping you to figure out whether it is implantation or premenstrual syndrome.
