irregular period after sex

So this is going to be a little long, I have a lot of details.

So in January, my period was a week late, but wasn't worried too much about it since cycles change every once in a while. But in February I went to go see my boyfriend (He's in the Army and is stationed in a different state) from the 17th through the 21st. We had sex the 17th and 18th and he ejaculated inside both times. But then two days later, late at night, I got this light pink discharge. I wasn't expecting my period for another week or so, so I was a little confused. I thought maybe implantation bleeding but it was way too soon for that and later it turn into more of a period and lasted as long as a period. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck its a duck right? But still it was just a little strange that I got it early and all that so I used an ovulation calendar to see when I ovulated and to see when my next period will be according to my last two periods and whatnot. Turns out I ovulated that weekend I had sex. And was supposed to get my period around March 5th or 6th. I took a pregnancy test around that time since I never got another period and it came out negative. Now its march 30th and I still haven't gotten my period. I'm very alarmed and haven't gotten the chance to buy aand take another pregnancy test although I'm planning on it soon. Any advice or help???

I'm pretty worried, had sex with my boyfriend on the March 20th but had my period 2 weeks after but it is just for 3 days compared to my usual period which lasts 3-7 days. Prior to that since January, I'm having irregular period and already checked with my OBGYNE and taking some provera (Jan-Feb) but this March I stopped it. Is there any chance I'm pregnant?

A light period is still a period if there is a flow to it and not just spotting. You can take a take a pregnancy test to ease your mind. Consider using protection moving forward, so you won't have this worry, especially if your periods tend to be irregular.

I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on the 19th of September. A few days past then I started becoming awkwardly tired, my breast started to be full and heavy. On the 27th I spotted(brown discharge) for a few hours then it came to stop. On the 29th I spotted again in this case my breast were super full and super heavy. On the 1st I started bleeding normal period all these pregnancy symptoms vanished. My period though it's not as usual because it doesn't necessarily fill a pad, it's menatural blood but not as am used to it, it was accompanied by lower back pain and frequent urination but that too has come to a stop. Am really worried please help

Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex. I was only on birth control for 3 weeks at that time; and I accidentally missed 3 pills. I started bleeding very lightly 5 days later when my normal period was about to start. I bled lightly for about 4 days, then the 5th day I bled like a normal period. Is there any chance that I am pregnant???

Hello Anon

If you bled, you aren't pregnant. You really need to take your pills every single day - that's the point of the pills. Set an alarm on your phone. If you still have concerns, a pregnancy test can let you know for sure.

Hello Anonymous,

Wait until your period for August is late by at least one week. Repeat the test. Test in the morning and use the urine when you first wake up.

Hello. I haven't had sex after 3 years ( yes its been a long time). I finally had sex again a week after my last period ended. It was protected sex but condom broke so we stopped. My current period was a few days late, which sometimes happens. I've been getting cramps and a little nausea, which happens sometimes before my period. I had what seemed like my period when it normally starts and then the next day it stopped but I'm still getting cramps. Could I be pregnant or could this be something else?

Hello Anonymous,

A period that lasts one day is very short.

See what happens. If you do not get a normal period this month, take a home pregnancy test.
