I had sex a week ago using a condom, he pulled out a the end, but I have spotting a week later and it's been going on for 2 days now. My period isn't supposed to come for a week yet. Should I be worried?

It is possible that this could be implantation bleeding.

However, if you are on the pill, he used a condom.....chances are almost zero that this is the case.

In fact, they are about zero on the pill. And even closer with the pill and condom.

I do not think you are pregnant.

You can get spotting for all sorts of hormonal reasons, even from being on the pill in some cases.

So this is a time to call your doctor for exam.

Things can be thrown off by


weight loss or gain

other hormonal problems such as thyroid

any illness.

Problems in the uterus such as fibroids should also be ruled out.
