Period Safe Sex
I missed my period. Practice safe sex. H.P.T. Was negative. Not overly stressed. I ovulated. No stds. Expected period 5-13-13. Causes?
Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
I am regular. Is it safe to have sex right after a period? How many days after a period is safe sex? When is it safer to have sex? PS. using a condom.
Use a condom?: Anytime is safe sex if you are using a condom correctly. NO time is entirely safe if you are not using protection. Probably the safest time (if you are super regular) is during the week before you expect your period to come, but this is also not "safe sex" if unprotected. Good wishes to you. ...Read more

Before my last period I had light brown spotting 3 days before my period, spotting again and starting period soon. Very safe sex what can it be?
I see a normal pattern here. The spotting 3 days prior to your period happens because there has not been fertilization of your ova that month and the hormones that would have sustained your uterine lining are falling because they are not needed. The light brown spotting is a very scant and slow flow that is exposed to air and turns brown before you see it. ...Read more

Safe sex??: It wasn't safe sex if your partner ejaculated inside of you. You could still be pregnant. Urine pregnancy tests sometimes take longer to turn positive.

I took preg test, said I wasn't preg. Had safe sex, but my period is late. But I did take a Plan B test yesterday after unsafe sex?
Test or pill?: How late is your period? Some variation in cycle length is normal. If you took the plan B within 24 hours after the unsafe sex it will be 95% effective but you can expect it to upset your period. Sounds like you need to start a more reliable method of safe sex and use condoms to decrease the risk of STDs. When in doubt repeat the pregnancy test. Good luck. ...Read more

2 periods in one month, have been stressed due to exams and had a cousin died which I took badly. Could it be due to this? Have also practised safe sex
Stress and periods: Absolutely, stress can cause alteration and fluctuation in hormone levels and create 2 periods in one month. If it happens for longer than 3 months, there would be more concern that something else is going on and need further evaluation form either your primary care doctor or an OB/GYN doc.
