my last period was December 15th have had sex prob like every other day since. i thought to believe i was pregnant, sore breast, moody and period was a week late and i I started bleeding lightly during sex, so I put on a pad and its been hours later and no bleeding only a little when i wipe and its like a light pink color. Slight cramping and a little pain in my left side but went away after a few mins or so. Should I be worried?

Thank you and yes we are trying again. IT just had me worried cause I had the symptoms, I will wait it out still no sign of any more bleeding yet and my period is usually normal on a 28 day cycle. I brought a home pregnancy test but wanted to wait to take it . How long should I wait to take the test

It's best to wait at least 2 1/2 weeks after sex. But you have had sex more than one time. You can test a week or two after a missed period. Or wait longer if you prefer. Always follow the instructions on the test.

Good luck!

Dear TrueHappiness,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

It sounds like you period might be starting. Since you are having unprotected sex every other day, I assume you are trying to get pregnant? The only way to know is to wait for your period to arrive. If you miss your period for this month, take a home pregnancy test.
