Preg and Period??
texasgirl11 posted:
My fiance and I have been having unpertected sex since we first started dating. I have a strange question.
I had my last period July 20-23. We had sex on the 24,29,30 of july and Aug 6th. He went inside me Aug 6th and the next day i was spotting then it turnd into a period. its lasted for 3 days. My period isnt due till the 20th. I was on birth control (YAZ) but stopped taking it because my body got messed up on them and I forgot to take them everyday. I havent been on the pills for a month. When I had my period july 20 I wasnt on them.
Is there any way I could have gotten preg on Aug 6th? Why did I have my period allready?

Thanks for any help
Yvette Smith, MD, MPH responded:
There is no telling what's going on with your body. That period might have been because you stopped your pills and your body hasn't settled into a good pattern yet. If your next period doesn't start in a month, I would do a pregnancy test. You could do a pregnancy test after the 20th of August as well but I would not believe a no is really a no until later that month. If things really aren't making sense, go and see your health care provider and review these events, they might want to do a blood pregnancy test after the 20th.
