Jaclyn, you've been engaging in unprotected intercourse with ejaculation, which presents a high risk for both pregnancy and STIs.

Period-like bleeding is not a symptom of pregnancy. How much prior to your period did this start? How do you chart your period?

Either way, I would suggest that you make an appointment with a gynecologist to have a full STI screen done and to talk about starting some form of birth control. I the meantime, you might also want to invest in a box of polyurethane condoms, which can be used by people with latex allergies.

I just want to mention that if your stomach pains persist for more than a few hours and are very severe, you should get medical attention immediately.

Bleeding like what you're describing can be a sign of STIs, so do get checked for those soon, too.

If you're not charting your period, there's no way for you to know when you are due. So I am not sure how you determine that your period is early?

But, again, at this point I suggest that you just make an appointment to talk to a gyn. You can get tested for STIs, talk about this irregular bleeding and the pain, and also have a pregnancy test done if that's deemed necessary.

Different STIs have different symptoms, but many have no outward symptoms until a serious problem pops up. That's why it's important to get tested--because many STIs are very easy to treat early on.

Irregular bleeding, though, is generally one of the main symptoms that appear in women.

If you click through the STI files that are on the page that Heather linked, you can find more information about the symptoms of each.
