User :   Hello, I'm am a 21 year old female who is concerned. I had protected sex (with a condom) the 2nd day during my cycle, which was May 1st. May 20th, I noticed a dark, ruddy brown secretion, lasting for two days, which was very little in amount and only showed on my tampon( I was not on suppose to have my period, and had no cramping or pain, usually when on my cycle I have intense cramps). However, my breasts became increasingly sore after this occurrance. My period is suppose to start the 1st of June. My boyfriend and I are very careful, and check before and after for leaks in the condom. Is this just ovulation spotting, or implantation? I really don't believe I'm pregnant, however this has given me quite a scare! Please enlighten me...( I am not on bc)
Doctor :   HI
Doctor :   let me read
User :   hello
Doctor :   how long is your one menstrual cycle
User :   Lasts about 6 days total
Doctor :   is it 28 days or 30 days period ?
User :   usually 28 days I believe, however I am not always on schedule, sometimes it comes much earlier, much later really depends
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   it is not possible for the pregnancy to happen when the act is on the second day of the menstrual period as the flow will flush out the sperms
Doctor :   if at all deposited
User :   I see... well at that moment I stopped bleeding, does that make a difference? it later started up again however
Doctor :   it does not make any difference in the final out come
Doctor :   as the uterus is in shedding phase
Doctor :   not in the receptive phase
User :   I understand. So is ovulation spotting a possible conclusion to why this happened?
Doctor :   ovulation spotting is the very much possibility for the reddish brown discharge you have experienced on 20th of may
Doctor :   also you need to know this
Doctor :   if you miss a period on the expected date and you suspect pregnancy than you can get the home urine pregnancy test
Doctor :   if it is negative
Doctor :   than you can get it tested after a week
Doctor :   if that is also negative than you are negative for pregnancy
User :   I see thank you. So most likely it is not pregnancy?
Doctor :   most likely it is not. and to clear the last doubt in the mind you can undergo the urine pregnancy test as explained above.
