I had my period a little earlier than expected, about5 days

Customer Question

I had my period a little earlier than expected, about5 days ago it lasted about 4 days , just like a normal cycle and a little darker than normal. I am sexually active with my boyfriend. I cant afford birth control at the time. we have sex normally and did about 4 or 5 days straight before m unexpected period. this may seem like a lot but we are in the honeymoon phase I guess icould call it... and we use the pull out method...bad I 24yrs old, never a bad checkup, but now I'm bleeding all of a sudden with no signs of it coming and its now my expected date. no cramps and its a little bright like pinkish red.. I dontwant to scsare my boyfriend but I don't know Its a miscarriage or a blessing..

This is Dr. David

you can afford condoms which are inexpensive or free and given out at many clinics and facilities.

heavy sexual activity can cause lacerations and tears of the vaginal wall or cervix which can cause bleeding.

having sex 4-5 days straight before your expected date of your period most likely will not result in pregnancy.

most likely the bleeding is from trauma or your period.

you wouldn't have a miscarriage this quickly

you should see a gyn doctor and get a gyn examination.

blood test will prove you are not pregnant.

you should go get some condoms for next time.

let me know if you have questions.
