Unprotected sex, early period, pinkish bleeding. Advise?

Hi, I usually get my period at the start of every month about the 5th but it is the 24th of march so I wasn't really expecting it, today I went to the toilet and had a light red/ pinkish period which is odd for me as I usually have really heavy periods that are a more red colour, I also usually get pretty bad cramps and vomit for the first day, this has not happend this month! Luckily! I'm just wondering if that's normal or should I be worried? I have had unprotected sex with my partner! And a week ago I took a hpt but I thought I was doing it to early as I am usually due at the start of a month! What is going on?

Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

If your period is delayed and there is a history of unprotected intercourse ,then it is possible that you may be pregnant.

The pregnancy tests detect the level of HCG hormone which is released in pregnancy.
The levels of this hormone rise as the pregnancy progresses.

It is normally detectable by day 11 to 14 after conception. You can consider either waiting a few days before repeating the test or having a blood HCG done at your doctor's office.
The HCG level in the blood can be detected sooner.

I hope this helps
