Can you get pregnant 1 week after protected sex?

My boyfriend and i had a protected sex last June 27. After 1 week, I had a bleeding(July 4) when i washed my vagina, it has clots. But the next day it was just a drops. I'm supposed to have my mens on July 10. Is it just normal or not? I'm usually having 29 days of cycle and when we checked the condom, it didn't break and there's no leakage. Is there a chance of getting pregnant? Thank you!

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Since your boyfriend wore a condom and there was no breakage, you should have been protected and not at risk for becoming pregnant. Relax and wait for your period to start.

Hi MaryAnn! My blood is vibrant red and it has clots but it is light,it does soak the pad but doesnt fill the whole pad. Is it normal that sometimes my menstruation is lighter than before? pls reply!! Thank you!
