Contraceptives?: You are 18 years old, an adult. Why not use some consistent form of contraception? The hormones in the Plan B can alter your internal hormonal levels and cause dysfunctional uterine bleeding which will eventually resolve. However, abnormal bleeding can also be caused by sexually-transmitted diseases. I strongly suggest a visit to your PCP, OB-Gyn, or Planned Parenthood for exam, testing, contracep ...Read more

Ovulation: It is very unlikely that you are pregnant. Just surmising from the dates of your sexual activity it would appear you did not have sex when you were ovulating, but that is just a guess. You failed to share with us the single most important piece of information about your cycle in your question: when do you ovulate? Bleeding never is a diagnostic sign of pregnancy. Neither is constipation. ...Read more

Had sex on 16 march. Took postinor 2 nxt mrning. Had withdrawal bleeding on 23 march. Last periods ws on 9th march. No periods as of yet. 2day is 22 april. Am I pregnant? Feeling constipated n tired.
Can do preg. Test: A urine pregnancy test done correctly will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and the test is not needed yet. ...Read more

Not uncommon: It is normal to have some spotting following a pap and the manipulation of the cervix can cause some cramping. Perhaps the Dr. Took a more aggressive sample than before or your cervix was more fragile this time. Follow up with the provider who did the pap if bleeding gets heavier or does not resolve within a week of the pap (and it is not time for your period). ...Read more
