Pregnant or just too paranoid?

Hello, I am having some trouble right now, well not sure if I can call it trouble, but it is making me indeed feel anxious and giving me a headache.

I am in a relationship for almost half a year and I lost my virginity on the 3rd of July, repeated the intercourse on 8th and 10th of the same month, and on the 11th I got my period. I didn't have sex again until yesterday, which is 7th of August, if we don't put at count the failed try from 31st of July, when I was too dry to have sex and he couldn't even get inside. [probably because of a problem I will mention down]

We used a condom every time and he didn't ejaculate while he was inside me. Also the condoms didn't break because we checked them. We're serious about pregnancy not happening because we're young (21 y.o.) and we're aware that this is a hugs responsibility. I am thinking of getting the the CP too, but I am kind of freaked out because of the side effects.
Yesterday, during the intercourse, in one of the positions, i started to bleed slightly, he was the one who noticed the blood because it was on the condom, so we stopped entirely. At first I thought it was my period being early (i got it on the 11th and ended on the 15th, so my period app said i would get it on the 9th, ) but that's not it, I guess, because it bled yesterday and today only when I go to the toilet i noticed drops of blood on the paper towel. Also my lower back hurt a little bit, like it does during my period, but it was bearable.

I have to mention I had a bartholin cyst, it appeared on the 11th of July, when my period came was the first time I noticed it because it got bigger and I felt discomfort while sitting down. After going to the gynecologist and doing some tests, I got back that I have candida albicans, I think it is known as yeast infection in more common language (I think, not sure, do correct me if I am wrong).

While sitting on the toilet and waiting for my boyfriend to buy me pads, I googled around about the bleeding during intercourse and it freaked me out because most of the answers were related to pregnancy ... anyway, I am slightly stressed and anxious, I keep saying I can't be pregnant because that's the logical way of thinking, but also I need reassurance from someone that my case is not one that I should be worried about, that's why I am here posting this.

Also I read on the internet that yeast infection CAN cause bleeding or the fact that the cervix was touched and since I am close to my menstruation it was lower than usually and that's why I bled.

What do you think?

P.S: I posted a comment in one of the threads with my story, but since I thought it might not be seen, I decided to make an account and post my own question, since I find this site helpful, I might stick around for my own sake and future researches.

Hi Cherry Girl

Thanks for your post!

Pregnancy is not an issue in your case so you can rule that out.

Since your period is on it's way, you may be getting it a little early. Sometimes intercourse can cause that to happen.

Additionally, if you were in any way dry gain, this can cause bleeding. Your yeast infection could also be a factor.

I'm sure your period will be along soon and your medication kicks in for your yeast infection. Then you should be back on track.

Thank you for your reply! This made me feel a lot better because pregnancy is a huge deal ... yeast infection and a period are things I can handle at 21, a baby? Not so sure haha!

Thank you a lot again and have a nice day!
