I really have no idea how to get ahold of a pregnancy test since I have no car, and i don't wanna tell my friends.
I was supposed to get my period today, but last night it just bled to fill up a pantyliner and now it stopped. :\
My bf & I used condoms except once, but he pulled out in time.
I'm still kinda scared. :\ Help?

If you are due for your period today and you started bleeding last night, even if the bleeding was lighter than usual, it's pretty likely that you are experiencing your period. A period doesn't always look the exact same way every time, and a lighter period now and again is not unusual.

If the bleeding remains light and you are worried, can you ask your boyfriend to help you get a pregnancy test?

Well, the thing is, I REALLY don't think I'm on my period. Like, whenever I wipe myself I don't see any blood- at all.
I just checked right now and there's still nothing. :\

Also, I usually bleed the most during the first days, so this is a major contrast.

It may be that your period is a bit late, and you had some spotting before.

BUT, it does sound like testing makes sense here if you don't get your period within the next couple of days. You should find a way to get a test, whether that's your boyfriend helping you or you getting a ride from a friend (you don't have to tell them what you're going to buy).

My friend said that my pms will be late since I lost my virginity recently? (10 days ago)

Having any kind of sex for the first time would NOT delay your period. (Although - unusually major stress can be a factor, if having sex for the first time was seriously stressful for you)

For reasons why your period may be late/missing, read here: M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?

Also, just to reiterate what others told you earlier, if you don't start having what seems more like your period in the next few days, we recommend you take a pregnancy test.
