hi i have a real crisis here, heres some background info:

my periods always delay one week, ex: if i get my period january 1st, it will last about 7 days and the next period will come february 7th-10th.

My last period ended a week ago, and i had sex the day after my period ended. I ended up with a uti the day after i had sex and went to the doctor for antibiotics.

about 2 days after the day i got uti, my vagina started itching around the lips, this lasted for approx 2 days. there was also a lot of discharge, but i always have a lot of discharge after my period.

it has been a week now since my period ended, and i just got a blob of really dark brown/black discharge that looks like old blood. i also have lower back cramps (which i dont get even when i get my period) 5 hours after the first blob of blood, i got another round.. its like.. a blob of brown goo with some old blood in my panties.

can this be implantation bleeding? or a uti side effect? and how can i get pregnant the day after my period ends, because my partner did not come, although it was unprotected. he never came. these signs of pregnancy should not come like right after sex right?

i usually get things that look similar to this right after my period ends.. like for 3-4 days after my period... but i was clean from when my period ended until this sudden spotting. what can it be? please help!!!!!

It seems like it might be a little early for implantation bleeding. It doesn't really sound like implantation bleeding anyway.

It sounds like it's probably just midcycle bleeding, or 'spotting'. It can happen from time to time, especially if you're stressed or sick.

You HAVE had a high risk of pregnancy though. If you do not wish to become pregnant, you need to use some sort of protection. If you're worried about pregnancy, you can take a pregnancy test 10-14 days after the last risk.

If you and your partner haven't had full STI screens, you're also at risk for STIs. You'll need to make an appt w/ your doctor to be tested. Using condoms is a really good idea AT LEAST until you get those results back (We recommend couples get tested twice, 6 months apart, and remain monogomous before having unprotected sex).

See your local phonebook for women's health. Planned Parenthood clinics or other independent women's clinics are generally available, and usually have sliding scale fees, based on your income.
