My husband and I had sex on jan 26 and with condom but he leaked and yesterday was exactly a week before my period is supposed to start and started spotting... Could I be pregnant?

Hi AlysMommy,

It sounds like it could be a possibility. If your period doesn't arrive within a week, you should test for pregnancy.
