Yes we use condoms every time. I guess I just get really paranoid and was thinking the same thing about the brown blood. It was probably be heavier next time. I think each month is different like one month is heavy and the other is not heavy. I have another question:What can cause a condom to get a whole besides sharp objects and it breaking?

Also what can cause a condom to get a whole besides sharp objects and it breaking? If a guy is wearing a condom during sex and he ejaculates can it drip down from the condom and enter the girl?

No, if a condom is put on properly all the ejaculate will stay in the condom.

If a condom breaks during intercourse, you'll know it. It won't just be a little hole...it will split or tear.

If you want a refresher on using condoms take a look at Condom Basics: A User's Manual

Well, if you mean the condom isn't on the whole time, that's not proper condom use, and is one of the common ways condoms fail.

So, if you want condoms to work as best as they can at reducing pregnancy and STI risks, you need to use them properly every time, and that includes putting them on BEFORE any direct genital contact, not after that contact has already begun.

But if you mean you just take very short breaks in intercourse and the condom is on the whole time -- in other words, you don't put on a new condom every time after you've taken a short break with intercourse, maybe to engage in another sexual activity -- that's usually fine so long as the condom still is on right, is intact, and -- from a bacteria standpoint -- hasn't picked up dust or hairs or what have you from the bedsheets, etc.

I meant the second one and thanks. Something has been stressing me out really badly for the past few days. Like I said my period was very short and a brown colour. I used a condom am on birth control and I know that the risks of pregnancy for me are slim but I have been having this lower left abdominal pain ( like where my fallopian tubes are) for the days after my period its not sharp but its constant throughout the day and a couple of days ago I felt nauseous like I wanted to through up but I get that feeling when I'm stressed with homework and haven't drank water for the day.. I'm just so scared that I'm pregnant because what else could be causing this pain? I am going to the doctor on Monday but until then I just kind of want a reason why this could be happening .. HELP [Frown]

I have a question about decidual bleeding? it runs in my family and recently i had unprotected sex and he pulled out but i dont know if he did it right. I started bleeding a week before i was supposed to start and at first it was brown spotting for two days then stopped an entire day then it was a little heavier with brown then turned a reddish brown and its not super heavy its either normal or a little lighter then my normal. it even stopped a whole day in the middle and i have no cramps and i usually have very bad cramps. i have an appointment with my doctor in two weeks to be tested but i was just curious if this sounds like a possibility of decidual bleeding?

okay, this may be in a different thread but it's the same sort of issue.
I lost my virginity 4 weeks ago, about a week after the last day of my period. we used a condom and I wasn't worried that much.
two weeks ago, I had sex again. on that friday(June 22nd) the condom broke, he didnt finish and pulled out right after he noticed. I was still worried because of pre-cum and wanted to be safe so I took plan b about two hours after. Last Wednesday, the 27th, I started getting very bad cramps. The next day I started bleeding, fairly light. Friday, it was heavy like how my normal period starts and continues for two days. but Friday was the only day when it was heavy, and ten it lightened up Saturday, Sunday and Monday. and ended this morning.
I haven't ever taken birth control so my body may be thrown off by this super high dose. but is this bleeding possibly my period? ( I should have gotten it between the 29th and 3rd) or is it something different I should worry about? like implantation bleeding? :/

I called plan b and asked about it and they were not helpful at all. please help??! :/

I'm sorry you didn't get any help from calling the company that makes Plan B. [Frown]

This bleeding could very well be your period: emergency contraception (Plan B) very commonly causes wonky bleeding of some kind, whether that's spotting, early periods, late periods, what have you. Implantation bleeding (when it happens, which is rarely) is light spotting, not period-like bleeding, so you can rule that out.

If you're still concerned, have you thought about taking a pregnancy test just to be extra sure? Seeing that result is often well worth the $10 or so.

I have thought about it, but it's still a little too early take it. I'm gonna wait it out at least another week and take one! It's just the fact that this "period" isn't like my normal periods and that's what worried me most.

Well, like I said, that's not really unusual after taking emergency contraception. Sometimes periods are lighter or heavier or longer or shorter for no reason at all, too, so it doesn't sound like you have any cause for concern here.

i just experienced a scare like this just yesterday. i found a drop of blood mixed with my discharge and im still a little concerned that i might be pregnant. im sure im being stupid and im not pregnant and your main post helped clear a lot up. however, my boyfriend did ejaculate near my vagina but we both had underwear on. this drop of blood sounds like implantation bleeding but its probably just a mid-cycle spotting right? i would just like your opinion

So from what ive read on this site, implantation bleeding is barely anything for like a day, and heavier bleeding for 3 or 3 1/2 days requiring more than just a liner is withdrawal bleeding, right? And even implantation bleeding is rare. If someone somehow got pregnant on the pill, would it be the same info as the info for someone that doesn't take the pill/shot/etc.?

Yes, it would still work the same--pregnancy is pregnancy--with the understanding though that the majority of people do *not* experience implantation bleeding.

Okay, thanks! I've always wondered, but never even asked is if someone were pregnant due to pill failure, but kept taking them anyway, would they still miss a withdrawal like one who misses a period, or is your body like "oh no more pills, time to bleed"?

I'm assuming it stops, because a developing embryo would have to have that blood kept in instead of shedding it.

I need some advice.

My boyfriend was grinding over me without a condom. there was no penetration I feel. And he came after pulling out.

On the weekend we went for an adventure trip and it was a lot of travelling and trekking. My periods were due.

I got the usual abdominal pain which I get during my periods. I also witnessed some light spotting/bleeding. But then suddenly my periods stopped.

Am I pregnant?

So I know i posted about this before in it's own topic, but my question about implantation bleeding didn't really get answered? So even though I'm a virgin (i've only given handjobs) I was a bit worried about pregnancy, because of my unusual period? It started a few days later than my normal period (then again, i'm pretty irregular, so I wasn't quite sure) and was fairly light. I'm usually heavy enough to have to change my pad at least once or twice a day, but I couldn't even *completely* fill up a single pad on what would have been my heaviest day. The blood was bright red sometimes, and more pinkish at other times. My normal period lasts 5-6 days, but this one was only 4. I had my normal symptom of backache on the first day. Does this sound like implantation bleeding, and can i be reassured that there is no chance of pregnancy from just a handjob?

Hi Olive,

It's really much more helpful for us (and we make this clear in our user guidelines) if people don't ask the same question in more than one place. if you fel like a question wasn't answered in the way you needed or wanted, it's okay to ask again in the same topic thread where you asked it initially. Therefore, I'm going to address this question in your other topic.

Hi, I'm very worried as I have a question about pregnancy.. I am on birth control, and have been taking it consistently for about 3 months. On the 28th of June, me and my boyfriend had protected sex, but on July 14th, two days before my period, I was spotting faint pink blood. Then on the day of my actual period, I'm still spotting very faintly. I don't know if this could be implantion bleeding or a symptom of birth control and I'm really scared. I believe the condom wasn't damaged, and He said he hadn't ejaculated, but I know of pre-ejaculation.. I just really need some help I'm confused and terrified...

If you have been using both the pill and condoms properly, then pregnancy truly isn't something you have to be concerned with as something even remotely likely. Too, implantation is something that takes more than two days for the process of a pregnancy to get to.

On the other hand, spotting is an incredibly common side effect of hormonal contraceptives. So, that is a far, far more likely prospect, as is spotting because of not using enough lubrication. That's particularly common when people are using a method like the pill, and then also condoms, where they don't take into account that more lube is needed with either or both of those things than without.

Thank you so much, the reassurance helps A LOT. I was also a little worried because what if the week of my period is actually the implantion continuing and I just think its a light period? But as I see there isn't much of a worry here. I just read so many things on the internet and all of it leads me to believe the worst. Thank you Heather!

Hi Sprite17,

In the future, please take some time to search around the site and our message boards before posting your questions; questions on implantation bleeding are very common on our message boards. Also, please be sure to start a new thread instead of adding on to someone else's. If you need help navitating the site, we have our live chat function available, as well as instructions we have created and provided in our Site Help & Service section of the message boards.

hi Sarahdee,

Many people spot--have a little bit of bleeding--at any point in their menstrual cycle. That can include shortly before they're expecting their period.

I see from the last post that you made that you haven't had a pregnancy risk. Implantation bleeding isn't even a possibility if someone knows that they didn't do anythingthat could make them pregnant.

If you're worried about wh

I was sexually active about a month ago, without pertection, we did it, then I gave him head, He says he came after that, and he wiped it all off. Then about an hour later we did it again. Well the nest day my throat started hurting. My tonsils swelled up and I had pus on them, with a really bad smell. I had the same smell down low. I got my period to days after we did, I had really bad cramps and I had blood clots. I felt light headed for a couple days now im fine. I've been stressing out ever since he told me he came. I've been stressing bad, like I almost cry myself to sleep every night. I accidently took 2 pills of methotrexate, i thought it was something else, and ive heard it can cause spotting and stuff. I was suppose to start about 4 days ago. 2 times when I wiped, there was a little bit of blood. and today when i got home i had a little bit of bright red blood in my underwear. When i wiped there was some brownish red blood with little blood clots in it. I'm really starting to freak out. Like I don't have any other symptoms. But stressing out over this is making me feel like I might be. My mom thinks I might just have an infection.. Someone please tell me whats going on??

Have you not yet been to a healthcare provider?

If not, then by ll means, that's the thing to do. We can't possibly know what's going on, only someone who can see you in person, and give you some exams and tests can do that.

It sounds clear you need some healthcare. And in the event you are pregnant, it also isn't something that will just go away by itself, though it sounds like you've had a period, so I agree with your mother: this all primarily sounds like some kind of infection. And those don't go away without treatment.

You have the right to privacy in that care in most countries, so if you don't want to tell your mother you've engaged in sex, you don't have to, and your doctor likely can't without your permission.

I've recently told my science teacher about it, and she told me this. Might be time to get a pap smear.... Sounds like an infection or other disruption in your uterus. Nothing serious. It's a good idea to have your first Pap smear around 16. She says she doesnt think I am pregnant. I'm just really scared I could be
