5 days ago i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend, he didn't come inside me but obviously they leak when moving, but i felt sharp pains the next day for 2 days and felt really tired (the pain was nothing like a period cramp) the 3 day i felt almost nothing and the day later i woke up to bleeding which was dark and today the colour has got much lighter. I don't have a regular period but i was wondering is there any chance i could be pregnant and still get pregnant?

Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

It takes 5+ days to get pregnant after sex so you would not be having any kind of symptoms yet.

Since you are bleeding, this sounds like you are having your period and not pregnant. In future use a condom as the pull out method when one is irregular is not reliable.
