My period's supposed to start on Feb 12. Prior to that, here's what happened....

Feb 11:
-Had unprotected sex. He pulled out before cumming.

Feb 12:
-No bleeding
-Felt heavy cramping for a short period of time in the morning; I also had faint red spots (saw it after wiping).
-I had dark brown spots in the afternoon (saw it on my liner).
-I had a light pink spot (after wiping) in the evening. When I saw the color, I immediately ran to a drugstore and took Nordette at 6:30pm.

Feb 13:
-About to drink my next dose at 6:30am.
-I peed a few minutes ago and all I saw is white mucus after wiping.

What does this mean? Am I pregnant or what? [Frown]
Any immediate feedback will be highly appreciated.

Thank you so much!

Pregnancy doesn't happen that fast, so even someone who was going to become pregnant after this and did NOT take an emergency contraceptive would not be pregnant at this point.

Spotting and discharge do not tell you anything right now. This soon in this, all you can do now is wait things out, and then take a pregnancy test if tour next menstrual period does not show up around the time you expect it to.

And, obviously, elect not to engage in unprotected sex or sex with only withdrawal, moving forward, if you are not comfortable with the risks that poses.
