Brief Answer:
Not to worry...

Detailed Answer:
Hello, I would be happy to help you!

You are right , the discharge after intercourse was related to semen. the bleeding was most likely related to 'bumping' of the cervix which is prone to bleeding- this is quite common and does not indicate pregnancy.

With regard to the prior bleeding, this might be normal spotting that can occur around ovulation.

Take a pregnancy test now and repeat it in one week.

I hope that this helps!

Brief Answer:
See below...

Detailed Answer:
I am sorry - I will clarify:

Assuming regular cycles, and assuming that you might have conceived this last month, the earliest that a test will confidently turn positive is about two weeks after conception. This is usually at the time of the next period.

Given the timing of your next period, the spotting that occurred the week prior to the bleeding with intercourse was almost certainly right around ovulation, as there is a brief, abrupt drop in estrogen that causes this to occur. Hopefully you had intercourse around that time as well.

Finally, assuming that the pregnancy test is negative, the pain in your belly is almost certainly related to an ovarian cyst, which is normal. If it is severe or gets worse, then you need to see your doctor.

I hope that this answers your questions.

Answered by Dr. Timothy Raichle 9 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
You could do a test now, but I think that it would be a little early. If it is negative, I would not lose hope, but rather repeat the test in a week, regardless of whether you think you got your period or not.

Brief Answer:
I am sorry about the delay...

Detailed Answer:
I am a little confused about the actual dates of your last couple of periods after reviewing your prior answers. You implied before that there was a period in early October, which would mean that this most recent bleeding is a little bit early. If I am incorrect, please let me know.

If you are having irregular bleeding and pain, and in the setting of negative pregnancy tests, then you need to visit your doctor. This evaluation should include an exam and an ultrasound of your uterus and ovaries.

I can help you further if you describe:
1. The dates of the FIRST DAY of your last periods - list the last three periods
2. The dates that you felt pain during the cycle
3. The exact dates of the pregnancy tests

I hope that this helps.

Brief Answer:
Thank you...

Detailed Answer:
Yes they are definitely irregular. This almost certainly relates to irregular or absent ovulation. When this occurs, women experience of prolonged absence of bleeding, and occasional breakthrough bleeding. This is what you have experienced. This requires:

1. A visit to an OB/GYN
2. Ask about testing for thyroid disease, prolactin levels, and labs related to PCOS
3. You need an ultrasound
4. If you are trying to get pregnant, and are not ovulating, then you might need medication to induce ovulation, called Clomid

I hope that this helps!
