Hi Scarleteen,
I have a question. I had intercourse with my boyfriend on Saturday. It was our second time. I did not bleed during that day. However, two days later I went to the bathroom in school and noticed that I had blood on my panties. It wasn't a whole lot and it was a tint of brown or dark red rather. That was the only time and it stopped immediately. During that time I was a week before my period. Is it normal to bleed 2 days after intercourse or should I head to the clinic? Or could I just be spotting before my next period? Thanks in advance.

you were spotting blood. that can happen if you were scratched, chafed or irritated during penetration. Did you use enough water-based lube??? If not, use more in the future.

otherwise, you could have been spotting for hormonal reasons, so observe your menses for another cycle or two and see if your cycles are changing. If your cycle behaves erratically, then see your doctor.

May suffering and pestilence befall the %$@! who broke into my car.
