Boyfriend and I didn't have sex but I'm scared that maybe somehow sperm got inside of me.
Last month my period came 4 days early. Usually its on the 28 but it came 24. This month it came on the 23. So, I'm guessing my period will start to come around that date now. I was scared that I had implantation bleeding last month because my period was heavy 2 days and weak the rest 3ish days. This month it was definitely a lot more heavier than the last but I feel like it was short still. Maybe its my mind playing tricks? How many times does implantation bleeding occur during pregnancy? Because if it only happens once then I definitely know I don't have that!

How about you start by assessing whether you've had a pregnancy risk to begin with, okay? Where DID I Come From? A Refresher Course in Human Reproduction Pregnancy Scared? Once you've figured that out, we can talk about the bleeding and what it does or doesn't mean.

Hey, maria. As we've mentioned before, we need users asking about pregnancy risks to go through this first:
http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/ultimatebb.php?/ubb/get_topic/f/27/t/027786.html We've also talked you through scares like this twice now, and the information we've already given you should cover this one, too. What we haven't said directly is all in that link above. Plus, as we've mentioned before, implantation bleeding isn't common, but when it does happen, it's called that because it happens when a fertilized egg implants. And that only happens once in a pregnancy. It sounds, though, like you're still fearful about pregnancy, even with what sound like periods pretty clearly. So, it's sounding to me like even the dry sex really isn't something you feel comfortable with, and to stop having these scares, you're likely better off putting even that kind of sex off the table until you feel more comfortable with all of this. Really, when a person keeps having scares, what they've got to do is sort out why and then be proactive around it themselves. Otherwise, this really will just keep on going like this for you.
