Exclamation her spotting is on and off. i srsly need help. - November 7th 2017, 02:57 PM

hi im sorry if i kept repeating some of these thread but i really need immediate help!

so me and my gf had sex on 27th of oct our private part come in contact only for a short while and i didnt cum on that day. on 2nd of nov we had another intercourse but this time we have no in contact with each other private part. its only me fingering her. and after a few hours of the intercourse she started to have spotting for 3 days until 5th of nov then it stopped and on the 7th of nov it came back but this time much more heavy than the past 3 days of spotting and her blood was brownish red. and her period is like next week? so that means shes spotting before period.

does this means that shes having early pregnancy?
why does her spotting came back on the 7th of nov? plus the blood was heavier than before.

im not ready to have family yet because im still young so please i need help thank you

I would start out by saying she should take a pregnancy test two or three weeks after having sex.

There are tons of reasons why she could be spotting.

For example, you said her period is next week, and some people experience spotting when they ovulate.

Other things can throw off a person's normal menstrual cycle including the act of having sex, being sick, being on certain medication, or being stressed more than usual. So, if any of those apply to her, it could be the reason she is spotting. The friction from sex can also cause some spotting if she wasn't lubricated enough.

I am assuming she isn't on contraceptives currently, but if she was just starting contraceptives such as birth control it could be due to her body and the hormones regulating themselves.

Therefore, it's difficult to say for sure why she is spotting. If she doesn't get her period as normal or if it has been 2-3 weeks after sex has occurred, have her take a pregnancy test.

I strongly urge you two to use forms of protection to prevent pregnancy. Condoms can be purchased at most grocery stores and pharmacies, and some schools or clinics even give them out for free. Your girlfriend can also talk to her doctor about getting on a form of birth control such as the pill, shot, implant, etc. These also have the added benefit of regulating her menstrual cycle if this is a regular problem for her.

Good luck!

Relax and take a deep breath. Don't stress out - BUT KNOW THIS.

This spotting is too early to tell for pregnancy. It could be that her hymen was torn when you penetrated her. Or it could be her menses. Too much stress/tension can bring about early menstruation.

Do you have access to an OB-GYNE? If so, you and your gf should go to this specialist for a thorough check up. This is the safest and most effective way to really know what is happening with her.

Also, if you or your gf are stressing too much, you may want to speak with a mental health counselor. They may be able to help you. You can read about it here.

The first time I had intercourse with my husband (my husband is my first hehehe), I also had these problems with bleeding. I immediately went to my mom's OB and she kept the consultation a secret. She gave me the treatment I needed at that time - I will not say what she gave me because it may not be the same for your gf.

Again, two things - go to OB and use protection/lubrication. Sex is a beautiful thing when shared with a person you really love. Just be careful.

Good luck!
