So about three weeks ago, I lost my virginity to my boyfriend. I'm not on the pill, but we used a condom. The first time he didn't finish because I made him stop since it hurt so bad. The second time wasn't as bad, but I think he did finish. We only had one condom to use and he reused it the second time. The time that passed between the first and second use was between a half hour to an hour. I don't think it broke or had any holes in it and he held the bottom when he pulled out. About 5 days after we had sex, I got my period, except it was 12 days early and lighter than usually.
What are the chances that I'm pregnant? /:

12 days early, for sure? How well do you chart your periods to know when to expect them? And when you say lighter, how much? And for less days or the same as you're used to?

Really, though, even though you two didn't use condoms properly (no reuse in the future: if there's only one condom, that means only one use), it doesn't sound like the condom failed, either. So, pregnancy seems unlikely, whether or not the bleeding you experienced was your period or not.

I mean, sometimes my period is irregular, but it's never that irregular. It'll usually be off by three or four days. But I did go 40 days without my period between September and November, like it completely skipped October. When I usually get my period, it's for 5 or 6 days, which how long the one I got was. But the first couple days are usually heavy but goes to moderate then light. This period started at moderate and went to light after a day or so.

So, you count your cycles to predict when the next one is due how? By number of days in a cycle (as in, every x- number of days you usually menstruate), or by dates (as in, if it came on the 6th last month, you expect it then this month)?

I count it by the number of days in the cycle. When it's normal, it's usually 32 days.

Okay. So this does sound like it was probably a fluke, if you counted correctly the last few cycles.

I'd just keep an eye on it and your sexual health in general. If you're not up-to-date with STI tests and pap smears, or haven't started those, soon might be a good time for those, and then if you still have a concern about this, you can ask about it.
