I've been here lots before, but I finally TALKED to my mom about birth control. So it should be okay right? Well, about 8 days ago, BEFORE i talked to her, my boyfriend THINKS he came in me a LITTLE. He pulled out, but he's not sure. Then last night, i started bleeding. It's not time for my period and it wasn't very much blood AT ALL. It was just a tiny bit and a tiny bit this morning too. I went ahead and took a test today. It was negative, but it's only been 8 days and that test has been in the car for a long time so I'm not sure how accurate it could be. I've been through this plenty of times before so I know not to look for any little "signs" or anything but I was wondering why I would be bleeding at all not during my period other than pregnancy. Thanks

Firstly, he didn't ejaculate in you "a little", you had unprotected intercourse which has a high pregnancy risk.

Am I pregnant?

Eight days is too late for emergency contraception and too early for an accurate pregnancy test. Get a new test and test 10 days after the pregnancy risk and a week after that if the first test is negative. Many pregnancy test kits are sold as two tests for that reason.

As to why you were spotting, there can be many answers but one of them may be implantation bleeding as the fertilized egg implants into the uterine wall.

I'm not a doctor and couldn't give an opinion over the internet if I was. However, the circumstances warrant taking the additional two tests.

Hello

I agree with the post up above.. Im not a doctor either.. but I think you should get a new recent hpt .. from the store.. and take a test again. Or you could wait til you miss your period. It could be due to sexual intercourse... bleeding or anything like that. Um I wish I could help you more but if you want to be affirmative.. then go to the clinic and get yourself tested.

I took another test after it had been 10 days and it was negative too. So I shouldn't be worried, right?? But now I'm 4 days late, so I don't know if I should be worried. I'm late a lot but not for the past couple months so I'm not sure what to think.

If you took a test 10 days after the pregnancy risk you should take a second one 7 days after the last test. Since your period is overdue, it is probably OK to take the second test now and have an accurate result. Late periods can have a lot of causes and from moderating these boards I'm beginning to think that the "Am I pregnant?" stress is one of the leading causes.

As for you being late on the period, a girl can take around 5 years to get a regular cycle.
