Hi, i have something that i think it's actually quite common: I am very afraid of a possible pregnacy. Which means: In the middle of April my boyfriend fingered me. I asked him if he had touched himself before and he said yes, a bit, but there was no fluid (or liquid, or preejaculate or whatever -he had not ejaculated while we were playing around). I also know that a few minutes passed between that... and that he hugged me and massaged me before the handjob, so if there was any fluid it could have been wiped off. After two weeks or so i got my period quite normally (with usual PMS and pain and so on). However after my period finished, i found myself worrying again. I mean , could i be pregnant like that, even if i got my period? I am now expecting my next one and i have weird symptoms (i know that PMS and pregnacy symptoms are very much alike) but they could be results of stress (i am stydying for very hard exams). I would rather not try a pregnacy test. What do you think? Is there a risk? Am i crazy? What is going on???

Thank you. I do feel a little better now.
But i have some questions about decidual bleeding (i am not sure i understood everything, because english is not my native). In any case, does it come with PMS and pain like a normal period? Does is come, like, every 28 days?

Also, a friend told me that if a woman ovulates normally in her monthly circle then she is not pregnant. Is this true?

I hope i didn't ask the same questions with other words! Thanks! [Smile]

No, decidual bleeding does not resemble a period: it is irregular bleeding that can happen during a pregnancy and has nothing to do with the menstrual cycle. It would be a huge coincidence for an instance of decidual bleeding to look exactly like a period.

Ovulation means that a woman can now become pregnant. If she were pregnant already, she would no longer be ovulating.
