I recently had sex twice, February 6 and February 10, both unprotected. I asked my partner is he ejaculated and he said no both times. He said he pulled out so there should be nothing to worry about. But i got my 'period' but it has been very light

I usually have a heavy flow during this time of the month, even though my partner said he didn't do anything, i am still paranoid about the situation because of the fact that my 'period' isn't normal, and a sigh of pregnancy is spotting in which some women mistaken for a period. I dont know i just need help, i am too young to be raising a child right now.

Dear Smclayton,

Thank you for your post today.

Implantation bleeding often causes spotting (small pink or brown spots) or off-and-on light bleeding for about one or two days. This differs from a menstrual cycle, which normally lasts between four to seven days. This can happen 6 to 12 days after conception. If you had a period, even if it was a lighter than usual, that's an indication that you are not pregnant. If you doubt this, to ease your mind, you can always take a home pregnancy test.

For future, you may want to get on some form of birth control and have your partner use a condom. Those are much safer options than relying on his word that he pulled out in time.
