I'm really worried.... My last period started on June 7 and ended June 11. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on June 14. He never ejaculated inside of me and I know that there's sperm in precum but he urinated before his erection. Well a day later (June 15), I randomly start bleeding. I mean I can smell the blood. It's enough to be considered the end of a light period (not very light but light). Then today, i have light brown discharge. Could I be pregnant? If not, what's going on with me?

Hi Strideforeverlove9 and welcome to Scarleteen!

I see that you've posted this question twice. I'll address it here, okay?

The bleeding is definitely not a sign of pregnancy.

I'm not really sure why you started bleeding. Sometimes, a period can actually stop for a few days, then start up again. Sometimes bleeding can be from irritation caused by too much friction during vaginal intercourse. Sometimes people spot between periods. It's likely that this isn't anything to worry about too much, but is probably worth mentioning to your doctor next time you go, and just generally keeping an eye on things to see if it happens again.

So I have nothing to worry about really? Could the bleeding be caused by something more serious such as a STI? What are the chances of becoming pregnant from precum? Also, what is the best type of birth control pill? And what are somethings I should ask my gyno?

Yes, bleeding can be an STI symptom, so it's best to get fully tested as soon as possible.

If your partner withdrew way before they ejaculated, you have used what's called the The Withdrawal Method perfectly, meaning you were 96% protected against pregnancy. However, you can still take emergency contraception (Plan B) to reduce that risk if you wanted to; but it's the sooner the better, so if you wanted to take it, I'd take it now.

There are two types of birth control pills, minipills and combination pills. Here's some info on them so you can choose whichever you think would suit you best:

The Combination Pill and Minipills

Remember, those are just some of the options available to you. For choosing a method of contraception, check it out: Birth Control Bingo!

You can ask your GYN anything about your sexual or reproductive health; but STI testing is a great place to start, after you take emergency contraception if you want that. Then you can ask your GYN and/or us any questions you have about choosing a method of contraception.

Since the withdrawal method is 96% effective, that would mean I'm most likely not pregnant then, right?

Also, could oral sex cause a yeast infection?

Whenever we have any kind of sex that could lead to pregnancy, there is some risk of pregnancy occurring. Your risk, with what you described, is low.

Oral sex isn't known to cause yeast infections, but it can transmit other bacteria which can contribute to irritation or infection. Here's some more information about yeast infections.
