Sounds like period: It sounds like you just started your period one day later than usual. Implantation bleeding is not really as common as the internet would have you believe. When it does happen it's usually 6-12 days after ovulation. A pregnancy test 7-10 days after unprotected intercourse is much more helpful. Implantation bleeding occurs exclusively in pregnant women. ...Read more

I had protected sex with woman with hsv2 5 week ago. I have lower back pain and itch on butt. Been feeling it 4 a few weeks. Is this a sign of herpes?
Low risk, no worries: Herpes doesn't cause low back pain or "itch on butt". The chance of HSV2 from one episode of unprotected vaginal sex with infected partner is around 1 in a thousand. With condom protection, it's still lower. Don't worry about this. Also look at it this way: If you've had sex with say 20 different women, you can assume 3-10 of them had HSV2. The one partner you knew about isn't any more risky. ...Read more
