My last period started on April 17th. It lasted about 4 days which is normal with it starting out heavy with cramping the first day and gets lighter. This was very different. I had intercourse early Saturday morning and started bleeding shortly after but it wasnt heavy. Later that day i stopped bleeding but was still cramping. That night the bleeding started again a little heavier. Then i woke up Sunday morning and had hardly bled that night at all. I bled a little more on Sunday through the day but not much. Monday I did not bleed at all. I have never had this happen before. I have had unprotected sex more than once through the last month so I am getting a little nervous. I took a test before the "period" started and it was negative. I am still cramping, my breats are very sore still, very emotional, and tired lately! Could I be pregnant or is it just an irregular period?

Hi Anonymous

Any time you have unprotected sex you risk pregnancy. So my first suggestion would be if you are not trying to get pregnant, decide what type of birth control you want to use and plan ahead so you don't have to say no in the heat of the moment. Take control of your sexual and reproductive life.

It is hard to say if you are pregnant. What you described could be just irregularity caused by stress, or not. I suggest you take another pregnancy test and see what happens.

We get a lot of these questions. Perhaps reading the other conversations will help you: https://www.empowher.com/condition/menstrual-cycle

The bottom line is we each have to be responsible for ourselves and our bodies. If you do not want to become pregnant, use birth control.

Good luck.
