Feel like I post here a lot sorry! But as I've said in all my posts I've only engaged in dry sex/manual sex etc that can't cause pregnancy- even with pre-ejaculate on my leggings, as I recently learned- but today I discovered a light blood on my underwear and and light spotting on toilet roll and my period ended last week, I'm really unsure what this could be and although yahoo answers strongly suggest it's pregnancy spotting I'm hoping this isn't true or possible! But I am just worried as to why I have light bloody discharge at this time in my cycle? Please help!

I don't know why you're looking to yahoo answers for any of this. If you want credible information on anything like this, you instead want to stick to credible sites, or people who you know something about at all, and know have this kind of information or education for real, like a healthcare provider.

We can't tell you why you are having this discharge for sure (neither than Yahoo, clearly, especially since a person who hasn't done anything that could possibly create a pregnancy can't be pregnant, or having spotting while pregnant).

Are you using the birth control pill or other hormonal methods of birth control? If so, it can be a side effect of those.

Or, it can be light spotting sometimes some people get with ovulation.

Or, it can be due to abrasions from manual sex or masturbation.

Or, it can be a symptom of an infection.

But the only kind of person who could have a chance at accurately determining for sure is a healthcare provider who you see in person.

You're right, yahoo answers is never the place to look..

Hmm I'm not too sure what it could be as I'm not on any form of birth control at the moment and if it's an infection it's definitely not an sti, do you think I should see a healthcare provider or I should wait and see what happens?

Anything else going on with this at all? Any pain or discomfort, any other symptoms or health issues or concerns of any kind?

Nothing else I don't think, I did engage in a little manual sex a few hours ago but the spotting seems like it has been present for longer? Could that be the cause?

Hi Samantha!

Again, we can't know for sure the reason for your spotting, only a healthcare provider IN person can tell you that.

Like Heather said, it could be for manual sex, yeah, but it could also be just because where you are at your cycle.

But if it worries you too much, a healthcare provider is a good next step [Smile]

Thanks for helping me [Smile] The clarification it's not pregnancy spotting eases me a bit and I think I'll just wait it out and see what happens [Smile]
