I had unprotected sex on friday 1/21 and was expected to get my period the following week of the 1/25. I did get what I thought was a period that last up to 8 days but was light ( brown, dark, i think were clots and there was some bleeding but not a lot of bleeding) My last two periods were regular but, I would not consider myself regular but am very stressed about the whole situation! This is the first time i have had sex in a while too.... so as you can see i wondering with the evidence of what i thought could be a period is there anyway i could be pregnant from that night!

The evidence suggests a period:
1. Bleeding for 8 days (it is the absence of a period that could indicate a period)
2. Bleeding at the time you expected your period...it would be a period

Please know that if you do not want to be pregnant at this time...use birth control so you don't have the stress of wondering if you are pregnant...when you get your period, this should end your stress of worrying about pregnancy. I understand it was different than usual, but periods can change for no "apparent" reason, and a lighter period is still a period.
