Okay, I've made a post before and I thought I was past it but now I'm freaked the heck out. Sorry for the extensive read.

Story:
Had a sexual encounter with a boy (i'm a girl) 68 days ago. All we did was mutually masturbate (fingering, handjob, blowjob, etc.). There was no direct ejaculation on my vulva region nor any penetration. [which can't create a pregnancy, i know.]

Two days after (66 days ago) I had a period, or so I thought. It had already been 4 days late total, but it finally came. It lasted 9 days, with the last two as spotting days.

About 2 weeks later (47 days ago) I began my pregnancy scare. I realized that I hadn't been too careful and might've been at risk.

The week after (40 days ago) I had VERY STRONG PMS symptoms that I never ever experience. I was bloated and constipated and I was urinating frequently and my breasts hurt terribly.

The week after that (32 days ago) I began my period. It was a little different. It was still heavy, but not AS heavy as normal. There was red blood but it turned browner a day sooner than it normally does, and it basically disappeared on the 4th day. Then I took an aspirin and masturbated to try to get it flowing again. It worked slightly and the period lasted for 6 days. My symptoms have disappeared ever since then.

I began charting my cervical fluid. And I had brown then pink spotting on day 24 and 25 of my new cycle (assumed it was ovulation bleeding). It's now day 32 and I'm experiencing bleeding that I thought was my period, but it just bled in the morning and then stopped midday. It wasn't much, but enough to convince me my period was about to stop. Although, wouldn't it be too early for it to be my period?


Now I'm going to probably call a women's clinic and schedule an appointment to see what is going on, but I would like an opinion.

I took a pregnancy test 7.5 weeks after the original encounter that read negative so I assumed I'm in the clear, but I have no idea what is causing this sporadic bleeding now. Please help.

My cycles usually vary in length from 32-42 days with 34 being the average. My past cycles have been 42, 34, and "32."

What do you all think is going on with my body [Frown] I'm freaking out. [Frown] [Frown] [Frown] I swear I'm not lying [Frown] I haven't had sex before [Frown]

We just can't possibly know.

A healthcare provider is the right person to have look into all of this and determine if this is just normal variations, or something to be concerned with.

How would you guys explain the bleeding if I'm likely not pregnant? [Frown]

How might you guys explain the bleeding? I just need a possible explanation.I'm not taking it as a diagnosis just a possibility.

We wouldn't, because something like this is something only a healthcare provider could evaluate well for you.

But for sure, when you go in, I would get all your STI testing done if you are not current with that, a pap smear if that is nit current, a bimanual exam and whatever, if any, additional bloodwork they suggest.
