to get this straight i need answers NOW!
me and my bf have had anal a few times, no cum the first 2 times, and the 3rd time about a month ago he let some cum come out in my bum....but i went to the bathroom right away and wiped it off(there wasn't much at alll) so that was fine

and on top of that ive been super super stressed because i dont want to be pregnant even though my boyfriend wont ever ever cum inside me(he knows how paranoid i am)

the only thing that is bothering me is that i just got my period today when i was supposed to so its good, but its a light brown-pink..very light not dark yet...but most my periods start out this way....altho ive heard the stress of thinking you're pregnant can affect how heavy/dark coloured your period is(which i believe since the last time i had a pregnancy scare a few years ago it was the same colour/situation)

i was hoping someone could help me out since the only symptoms im having are my normal beginning peroid cramps/bleeding on time and my hugeee stressed mind!=[
no, i havent had any pre-pregnancy symptoms or any symptoms 2 months after we started to be more sexually active!!!
i hope someone can help<3

Just so you know, we do try to answer every post as quickly as we can. So there's no need to ask for us to do that. We're already trying our best.

Here's the thing: unprotected anal sex can cause a pregnancy risk if ejaculate leaks into the vagina. You wiping away ejaculate afterwards does nothing to diminish that risk. (Anal sex also has pretty big STI risks, so you'll always want to use condoms unless you've both been tested twice, 6 months apart, and come up clear.)

Implantation bleeding is a very rare bleed that can happen when the egg implants in the uterine wall, so something around a week after the risk. This bleeding only happens in one third of all pregnancies, and when it does, it's very light and won't last beyond a day or two.

So, what does all of that mean? You may have had a moderate pregnancy risk from the unprotected anal sex. You're due for your period today, and you've got bleeding, and it looks like your periods usually do. Chances are, that's your period, then. And it's not possible to have a regular period and be pregnant.

It's also not really true that worrying about a period will change its color. It is possible that a period may be delayed if you're really worried about pregnancy, as stress can have an effect on the menstrual cycle. But the colour of the bleed has nothing to do with that. And besides, menstrual blood can be any shade of red from pink to dark brown, and your period won't look exactly the same every month. Some variation there is totally normal.
