So I lost my virginity last week on Monday. We used a condom, however, my boyfriend was teasing me as he called it by acting like he wasn t going to put the condom on at first. His penis made contact with my vagina, not in it but right outside the the opening. Recently I ve been getting really bad cramps( to the point I feel like crying) and today we were messing around and he told me that I was bleeding. It wasn t red, it was a dark brown color. So I m just wondering if there s a chance I m pregnant? Or if these are just normal side effects. Please help I m scared. I m not wanting to talk to my mom about this yet because I m afraid she ll be upset.
