2 weeks before my period was supposed to start, I went to the bathroom and wiped with a tissue and noticed that there was some fresh blood mixed with my vaginal discharge. I freaked out so much that I got chills, but 2 days before that my boyfriend fingered me.

Now my period is delayed for 3 days, and I'm worried that that was implantation bleeding? I mean, how common is midcycle spotting anyway? I have never had vaginal intercourse though or contact with cum, but I think I may have come in contact with precum.

Please help, thanks so much.

Can you read this to help you figure out if you have had any sort of a pregnancy risk?

Spotting is a pretty common occurrence. It can happen when you're stressed, with big changes in your life (different diet, exercising more, big shift in sleeping pattern, etc), but also sometimes for no reason we can find. So, if you've ruled out a pregnancy risk, there's no reason to be worried about a bit of spotting.

Does that mean I did not have a pregnancy risk then? Because I'm not sure if semen could also mean precum or just cum when the guy finishes. Thanks so much for your help.

Precum can contain sperm, yes. Does that help you with understanding our guide for self-assessing you risk?
