I got my period again after 3 days of ending. Is this normal after having unprotected sex during my "first" period?

I had my period Feb 5,2010 (Friday) and had unprotected sex on Feb 6 (Saturday). He didn't cum inside of me so he'd always pull out and I took my emergency birth control pills right after we had sex. I ended my period on Feb 9 (Tuesday), then Friday (Feb 12) I got my period again. My second period lasted for about 5 days. I usually have a regular period, meaning I get my period after every 28 days. What could this mean? Is this because of the emergency birth control I took? Or is this a sign of pregnancy?

I got off my period and had unprotected sex on the 12th today is the 15th and I'm back on my period. I take birth control regularly. Could I be pregnant?

Hi Anon!

Pregnancy when taking birth control (each and every time/day) is very unusual.

The bleeding you experienced may have been residual blood from your recent period that was triggered to release by sexual activity. Was it browner than normal? If so, this is what the blood would be.

If not, I cannot say why you bled but bleeding is not necessarily a sign of pregnancy.

So I started my period march 22 an ended on the 26.( Ok my periods are always really bad like almost 18 tampons a day I go throught an last 7 days.) This time it was really light an 5 days I used like 10 tampons BC most the time I didn't need anything. Then 3 days later of ending my peroid I started again but when I would pee for 5 days. No cramps not heavy nothing like my peroid has been for the past 9 years. What could be goin on? I'm trying to get pregnant but it's really hard I miscarry a lot. What do I do? I went to the dr an they don't do anything this is getting really hard. I need to know what's goin on BC I want to have another baby. Please help me out.

My period finished on the Wednesday. The following weekend I started getting brown-black bleeding. I didn't consider it anything to worry about but as of the Tuesday I had heavy black clots streaming out of me from when I woke up. This followed by a period all over again. I usually have regular periods and am not on any kind of pill and have had no implants. This was also with pain in my lower abdomen area on both sides. I am also not active and haven't been for many months. Any ideas as to what this could be?
