I just lost my virginity about a week ago, and we used protection. I didn't bleed until almost 48 hours after intercourse, and I've had heavy bleeding since. Should I be concerned?
Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
ARe you asking if you are pregnant?
When did you have sex - what date?
When is your NEXT period suppose to start?
I had sex on July 1. My next period is supposed to be around early July, I usually have it around the beginning of the month
I am concerned about pregnancy, but also about possible disease
I don't feel pain, cramps, or nausea. But the bleeding is very heavy
Do you mean your next period is suppose to be around the 1st of August?
Oh, you mean next month? Yes, around August 1 or 3
Do you know the guy you had sex with?
Not really. We used a condom
So you had sex around the time of your period, is that correct?
A little before it was supposed to begin
okay - when did you start your period?
If it is my period, it was this Monday, July 2, at night
okay - well this sounds like this is a heavy period for you
I really hope it is just a heavy period. I know that sounds strange, but it's because I haven't had cramps or pain that I'm worried
And, you really will Not get pregnant around the time you had sex - so you do not need to worry about getting pregnant
Thank you. I am still worried, though, about infection. I was told heavy bleeding almost a week after isn't normal
Well the time you can get pregnant is about 14 days PRIOR to your next period
so you were not close to ovulation time, so you are very Unlikely to be pregnant from this incident
That's what I read. I don't plan on any more sex any time soon, I was careful and told him to use a condom, and he didn't pressure me
As for an infection - it is possible
and if you know the guy, and you think he is STD free - unlikely you got any STD - but you should get tested to be sure - such as for Gonorrhea or Chlamydia
Are you still there?
I see, so it's good to get tested soon?
did you try to click on EXCELLENT service
How would I go about doing this? I know it sounds stupid, but I want to check. He was more experienced, but he beli
yes, you should get tested soon - you do not have to wait
Can I do it anonymously?
well you can go to any doctor, ob/gyn, Family practice, or even go to any Planned Parenthood
Ok. Thank you so much. This gives me peace of mind.
Well anonymous does not matter because doctors are NOT allowed to divulge any information whatsoever
