After sex on Saturday, I noticed that when I went to pee, there was a little blood spot on the tissue when I wiped.

It wasn't particularly aggressive sex or anything, and things were plenty wet. My boyfriend came inside me, but I don't think it's from him, since he didn't have any pain...

I was wondering if it could possibly be implantation bleeding? It wasn't a lot - just a small spot, but it wasn't pink or brown but bright red. I haven't experienced that since, and that was the only time that night. But I'm on the pill and I have been for almost a year and a half now and a perfect user, so shouldn't that mean there is no implantation, since there is no egg released?

I'm just curious if anyone has any ideas as to what it could be? I know I ask a lot of questions, but I really appreciate the time you guys put into this website.

Thanks guys [Smile]

It would have been too soon for implantation bleeding. That usually occurs a while after the pregnancy risk and shows up as very light pink/brownish blood or discharge. Even then, it's fairly rare in pregnancies. If you have been taking your pills on time as directed, pregnancy should not be too much of a worry right now.

It's possible that some tissue got torn during intercourse and caused you to bleed that little bit. That can still happen sometimes, even if it seems that you're lubricated properly. As long as this is was the sole occurrence of bleeding and you're not having any other unusual symptoms, it's likely nothing to really worry over.
