I had unprotected sec on the 20th and started spotting on the 21st-25 on my regular period days but I'm usually heavy and this was not at all heavy. Then on the 28th I had unprotected sec again and the 31st and the 1st I spotted again but it was pink. But through all this I have had a bad vaginal smell so I'm wondering if that's what is causing the irregular spotting or If it's pregnancy
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

Any discharge besides the spotting?

It still smells and it normal discharge now I think. But it was spotting pinkish orange two days ago a or two after unprotected sex
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

OK

From what you've told me this isn't a pregnancy situation

But you may have bacterial vaginosis--a vaginal infection--and that can definitely cause spotting and period irregularities

I'd suggest you see your doctor for an exam and a culture since it sounds like you'll need a course of antibiotics like Flagyl

Please let me know if you need any more information

Ok ever sense we started having sex a year ago I been have bacterial infection down there and i have been givin several things to help but can t seem to keep it away. We both have been tested for sexual diseases and we are both clean so Its frustrating to keep having these issues
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

I understand

But you asked about pregnancy and the BV often messes with periods

Simply put--you aren't pregnant

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
