    My girlfriend and I haven't seen each other in three months... When we finally get to see each other , we had unprotected sex and used the "pull out" method.. This is Tuesday and she's supposed to start her period on Thursday.. When Thursday comes she has normal red bleeding and then Friday, Saturday, and Sunday she has light pink spotting.. Now she's scared she's pregnant.. What do you think could cause this?

    There is what is called implantation. It is a fertile egg being planted and there is a discharge that is pinkish. This usually happens a few days before you expected period. Being the intercourse happened on Tuesday and her period was due on Thursday, and it came, she is mostly not pregnant. It is to early for a home test. Just have to wait it out for her next period to show. Which I think you will.
