2 regular periods and then nothing... am I pregnant?

I had unprotected sex in the beginning of january, but he did not ejaculate. I am worried because I heard about the possibility of sperm being in precm...I had my regular period about two and a half weeks later. I had a second period a month later. This month, I had light bleeding once after heavy exercise, but nothing else. I'm currently on day 29 of my cycle and I'm waiting to see if I'll get my period. I normally have 26 day cycles... I've seen no symptoms or changes in my body, but I'm still extremely worried because if I am pregnant, it would already be 2-3 months! I know I should use protection when having sex, and I'll make sure to do so next time, but for now please give me advice! I'm hesitant to go get a pregnancy test because I would have to tell my mom first (I'm 16) and obviously I know you can't determine pregnancy without a test, but can anyone help?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to us with your concern, and glad to hear that you will be using protection in the future.

Pr ejaculate fluid itself does not contain sperm. If the male has had a receent ejacualtion, like from masturbating, some sperm can remain in his urethra. That is the tube through which urine and semen pass. Once he urinates, any stow away sperm is flushed out.

Your partner did not ejaculate, so that reduced the risk of becoming pregnant.

You had two normal periods after unprotected sex, which proved that you did not become pregnant.

If you have not had unprotected sex since the beginning of January, pregnancy is not the reason you are late.

How light was the light bleeding? Have you been exercising a lot more this month? That could be the cause of the lighter and shorter period this month.
