Got period Dec 5th. Had unprotected sex the 19th used pull out method. App say should've started 2 days ago. Light pink wiping earlier today.?

Possibly pregnant: Your app seems to assume that you have a 28 day cycle (Dec 5 - Jan 2 = 28) Based on that assumption you would have ovulated 28 - 14 = 14 (day of cycle). Dec 5 + 14 = Dec 19. So you had unprotected sex round around you ovulation. The pink wiping could indicate that your period is starting and that you are just late, or it is kind of an implantation bleeding.

16, f, been on bc pill/2yrs, pills takenfew hours late often for 2 mnths. Used pull out method in march, period heavy but 1 day shortback pain, ngtv test?

Retest in 7-10 days: If your bc pill has estrogen in it, taking it a little late is not a big problem, missing pills is. Go to clinic and get tested in 10-14 days.

Maybe check out using the patch, ring, or Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud, methods you don't have to remember daily. Discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more

Urine pregnancy tests are not as sensitive, so it may not have been a reliable time for the urine test. Obtain a serum pregnancy test (HCG) to be certain from your healthcare provider. Do not rely on the method described if you want to avoid possible pregnancy. ...Read more

My gf is 2 days past her period and had a neg htp. No real symptoms other than spotting. Used pull out method 3 times last month. Odds of pregnancy?

Trust the test: .Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors 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. See a doctor for irregular periods. ...Read more
