Hi tiptif, 

You can always get pregnant if you have unprotected sex. Please wait until you have a missed period to tet for pregnancy.

Hey I'm 20.I recently was about to have sex with my ex but at the end I didn't let him. He barley insert the tip or not even the tip inside me 3times, and I made him stop when I would feel the pressure inside me. by the forth time I didn't feel comfortable and I just put on my clothes and stop before it was to late. I always get worry about becoming pregnant. I know I shouldn't even let him and now i regret it. So what are the possibilities? Should I be worry? Thank you for your time and advice. I hope you were able to understand my explanation.

Hi babyyhanne,

Did you have unprotected sex? If you had a negative pregnancy test then you are not pregnant and the dark blood is old blood, which can be mid-cycle spotting and is often hormone-related. 

Other possible reasons for late or missed periods are illness, medication, recent weight loss/gain, and more commonly stress. 

Please wait for your period to come-- if you miss it for 2-3 months straight please consult with your doctor.

Best,

Rosa
